Tuesday I transform into Chewbacca for a gig at Lakeshore Mall in Gainesville. There will be three other Star Wars characters there as well, and Jeff is putting it all together. It looks like I’m going to have a good time, though slightly claustrophobic and dehydrated. I tried the suit on for fit and it’s a bit warm. Any activity in the suit may prove fatal. Balthazar wasn’t sure whether to fear or laugh at me. He always cheered up when I came out from behind the mask. He doesn’t yet grasp the concept of a mask, I don’t believe. We’ll see how my first character act goes. Maybe I can work on my Chewie growl before then.


  1. I’m not sure, exactly. I know you can bring Ella – it’s a kids-oriented program at Lakeshore Mall on Tuesday. I believe it all begins around 5:30pm. There will be four of us from Star Wars, but there are other activities for children.
