Well, it's about time I found time to do this profile. So here it is....My real name is Wendy Wright, I live in NY, NY. I'll soon be 52. I've been a professional Broadway theatre usher for 30 years. I've also been a professional working costumier for about that long. I've lived up & down the East coast, from NY to Fla & back. I first used the Nova Darklighter name for a RP/LARP character after the 1st film, about the time that D&D was popular, some friends and I created our own SW version and played it, at home or on the streets, sometimes with funny results. I've been a member of MSR (Medieval Scenarios & Recreations, similar to SCA) for about 20 years, have an Order of the Golden Bowl, and an Order of the Garb (this means I'm a really good at cooking weird food & I can really sew funny clothes) and some other stuff. Just to amuse you all, I worked at Rubies as a designer for a couple of years, and actually worked on the costumes for Ep I. I did all the JarJar costumes. The samples that were approved by Lucasfilm were a lot better than the production run, Mr Lucas was very unhappy (I heard) that is why the Ep II costumes were better in production, but I had left Rubies before then. I now work at Halloween Adventure, which is fun most of the year, except for Oct. I do that during the day & usher at night, NYC is an expensive place to live & I';m a workaholic anyway. I get a lot of custom work at the shop, for stuff that isn't commercially available, so I freelance after work at night by sewing, known as my 3rd job. I bowl on the Broadway Show Bowling League, which exists to raise money for B'way Cares/Equity Fights Aids, that's all the references to "Gotta Go Bowling!" We bowl at about 12 midnight on Thursday nights. I won this seasons trophy for most improved bowler, this means I had a couple of really lucky games, I'm a very erratic bowler, ranging between a low of 97 & a high of 203 this season, but avg. about 120. I have been a serious fan of Queen for a very long time, about as long as Star Wars, maybe a bit longer, with about the same intensity. I have a cat, named Tenement Funster (Queen song, she's a funster & the building I live in was at times past called a tenement) funny cat is a brat, and about 11 years old. Well, that's probably more than you really wanted to know, so I think I'll quit here.
