Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

If you’re attending a Halloween party in Brooklyn next week, and a Chewbacca walks in, lugging an in-pieces C3PO ala the scene from The Empire Strikes Back… Well, there’s a chance that that won’t be just an inanimate prop strapped to his back:

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?

Oh yes, this was a Craigslist ad (now apparently flagged and pulled). I’m not sure if this proposal is less fetishistic than soliciting amputee sex, or more so.

What could be creepier? I suppose a reenactment of Han Solo’s Tauntaun belly-burrow would trump this — especially if that came together via online collaboration…
