PittGirl is your best friend.

Do you know what you need? I’m going to tell you.

You need a homemade light saber! Next time you’ve got an intruder in your house in the middle of the night, you can scare the shit out of him. Or you could sell it on eBay because you KNOW I’ll put you on the next Weird Burghers on eBay post.

But PittGirlllllll, you whine. HOW do I make my very own lightsaber?

You are one lucky lucky bastard, because I’m going to tell you.

You head over to the Pittsburgh Comicon this very weekend where The Star Wars Association of Pittsburgh (there is such a thing) will host several panels one of which will be:

Building Your Own Lightsaber
Learn techniques of building a custom lightsaber hilt using a variety of approaches, materials and skill levels. (Saturday 4:00-5:00PM, in Radisson Monroe II)

You are so so so so welcome!

    Believe it or not that con is a lot of fun.

    I’m pissed I won’t be able to go this year :(

    Can we convert my Honda into one of those X-Wing fighter things? Because that would at least make my commute a little more interesting.

    PittGirl, you know you want one. Otherwise, how did you EVER find out about this?

    Oh, macengr, you just wish you knew how I find out about stuff like this don’t you? Let me just say I wasn’t out looking for it, any more than I would go out looking for a turkey downtown. But man, I would totally kick ass with a lightsaber.
