    Need an amputee to complete my Halloween costume (Brooklyn)

    So this might seem strange and really offensive to some but hopefully someone will reply. I have always loved the scene in Empire Strikes Back where Chewbacca has to carry around a half reconstructed C3PO in a backpack because he hasn't reattached his lower body yet. For Halloween I would love to dress up like this. I am big enough and strong enough to both pull off the Chewbacca look and to carry around a lot of weight for the night. So basically I am looking for a double amputee (someone missing both legs - preferably at the hip) to accompany me as C3PO for the evening. We should meet ahead of time so that we can work out the backpack/harness system. There are a few parties that I want to hit and I think we will be the hit of any event we attend. Anyone up for this?

    My friend and I used to work as furniture deliverymen, and we really wanted to go to work on Halloween dressed as Han Solo and Chewbacca.

    I can do a pretty awesome Chewbacca roar.

    Guy isn't using his head. A contortionist or a magician's assistant could pull this off just as easily.

    Even with a person who is willing, you'll still need the costume... then there's the voice thing (I must add I do a pretty decent chewbacca roar as well, but we're talking threepio here).

    I think you'd be better suited, no pun intended, to make the threepio part as a 'backpack' with a couple of wires you can use to make his head twitch back and forth and wave his arms a bit, and a recording or two.

    Fatty's on target.

    The right contortionist or magicians assistant would make for a more memorable evening. ;)
