Once the video ended we were free to enter the exhibit and along the way there were 10 stations that we had to complete in order to form our character. Some stations had a variety of choices and some had a simple interactive activity. Despite the arrangement of the station, there was always an area to place the chip of the bracelet on. It would store the information of which area you selected and would combine all your choices at the end of the exhibit to show your character in full. I looked really cool.

Identities was such a great experience, I wasn't ever big on Star Wars (I didn't dislike it though!) but after this I certainly was a fan. We got to see the costumes used in the films, the models used, the concept art, film clips to go along with certain stations, and so much more! It was great. Prepare for a flood of photos from the exhibit...
|There was podracer. A giant pod racer. Very cool.|
There was a father and son at this point and the father had his son take his photo with Leia (Q and I were right there and he didn't ask us to do it). Then got upset with the kid because he apparently moved so the photo wasn't clear. "Take it again, I know it's blurry, I saw you move!" This kid was probably 6 years old. One day he will understand and perhaps resent his Dad a bit.
|This is Momma and her beau when they went to Identities. They chose to be good.|
|This is Q, Dark, badass, and a sweet name.|
|And this is me. Told you I looked cool.|
I hope you feel like watching the films now, I sure do! Unfortunately the exhibit is over in Edmonton but if you're really keen you could head over to Vancouver! I think that's Identities second and final Canadian stop. Check out the Identities website for more info.
May the Force be with you...
