I originally started this blog around this time last year when the final season of Entourage began and had been ‘refreshing’ the series. There is an episode where they use Craig’s List (Craig is awesome!) and hook up with a chick for sex only to find out she is in to costumed play and more specifically is what they refer to as a furrie. This is where Google’s Search can be a very bad thing because I used Google to understand this ‘furrie’ thing.
Then I remembered this chick at and it all clicked and in that instant my childhood innocence was gone. This amazing costume switched from being just a really cool costume to what? I don’t know, and to be honest I was horrified to think about it.
It was thoughts like this that lead to the dark side right? First it’s thinking about the potential for an animal costume to be erotic and the next thing you know you are watching watching bestiality videos on You Tube. Slippery slope right? But think about the Princess Leia Slave Costume, which ironically is what magically pops up when you put in Princess Leia.
Although I was a bigger Han then Luke fan, it wasn’t because of Leia. It was because of the Falcon and Chewbacca. What Nerd doesn’t want a wookie bodyguard and best friend? Duh-uh. I didn’t see Princess Leia as a sex object in Return Of The Jedi at least not the way it seems all the other males do. The google search I did to complete this blog brought it to light that it was the most common search term for Princess Leia. Switching from everything to images makes me realize that not only do men find it sexy, but evidently women find it sexy to dress in the costume. Cosplay. Who knew?
