Next up, we’ve got a little Star Wars Saidi, courtesy of Zafirah! I love how she’s melded Leia’s white dress/uniform w/the Saidi galabeya, and how she works TWO light sabers at one point! :D
How cute is this?? ^_^
But really, if you’ve ever opened up any sort of science textbook you’ve no doubt seen this walk of evolution image. The problem is, Man (that is, the depiction of modern homo sapiens) instantly becomes White European Man. Unfortunately, most pictures depicting this “evolutionary walk” instantly evolve homo sapiens into a white male with clear European features, which is problematic for an obvious number of reasons.

Last but not least, we have Amira, with a combination that I’m guessing many of us Star Wars fans and bellydancers have pondered- at least once or twice. ^_^ Her Leia is pretty spot-on as far as I can tell, and it is WONDERFUL to see an actual bellydancer do this idea justice. I’ve no doubt that folks have tried this before (given how bellydance-friendly the Slave Leia costume looks), so it’s great to know that at least one woman out there is doing it up well. ^_^ Oh, how I’d love to do my own version, someday! :D
And that m’loves, is it for me for today, and for -this- edition of Geek Friday vids. If you wanna submit something, suggest something, or otherwise give me evil, nefarious ideas, feel free to Ask/PM me, ‘cause I would -love- to hear from y’all. ^_^ Merry Weekending!
A girl just told me she could be an anthropologist because she’s good at guessing people’s race.
