I didn't really watch any of the Clone Wars cartoon. Do they ever mention that Aayla is a twi'lek? Maybe most people don't know what the race is called so they just call all twi'leks Aayla because its all they know.

There are a few episodes that are pretty specific about the species, including the one with Suu. I think it's just cuz Aayla is now ingrained in the culture, even for non-geeks, the way that any black-robed dude with a red lightsaber is automatically "Darth Vader" or "Darth Maul" even if he's clearly not either. Pam relates stories of how no matter what her costume was for a while, she was always "Princess Leia" when Leia and Padme were really the only chicks in Star Wars.

If you're a twi'lek Jedi, you're Aayla.

I accept this. *Nod*

Okay, I'm a little late adding these, but here are a few more pics from WonderCon for people that haven't seen them on Facebook. See below for all the Aaylas and a princess. :)

So did I, and even added "only that one's a boy" in my mental narrative.

I laughed soooo hard when I read that! (It's the joke that keeps on growing!)


It was really terrific to have other Twi'leks at WonderCon this year. The feeling of "I'm not alone anymore" was nearly as good as the happy that came from seeing others wearing the headpieces, and seeing them having fun in those costumes. Thanks, ladies, and sir.

Pam :-)

At least you are called 'Aayla'... Last time I was out as a twi'lek along with a friend (she was blue, I was turquoise) we were called 'those from Avatar' ;) oh well...

It was certainly fun wearing them. Besides the four of us, I saw at least three other twi'leks at WonderCon.

I had one person looking at my face and lekku comment "it's absolutely seamless!" That made me feel better about my paint job and it's a huge compliment to Pam and the life-like quality of her lekku!

I got my costume RL approved this week. Yay! I forgot now that I'm an alien I can join the Wretched Hive detachment. That got me thinking, I bet we have enough aliens in Endor Base to start our own Base Clan.
