Picture of the Week- Stormtrooper Galactic Kiss

Squealing with excitement yet? It’s okay, I was too when I saw this photo.

It was love at first sight when I came across this picture a while back. It took me some time to find who created it but with the help of social networking @identity_no2 located its creator by way of @BlogtorWho (thanks guys!).

This is the galactic version of the iconic photo of the sailor kissing the nurse on V-J Day in Times Square after WWII. The original was taken by Life magazine photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt. The stormtrooper, Tracey (TK9612 on Flickr), was approached by Kim Thomson at the Star Wars Celebration V convention in Orlando, Florida to help her recreate the famous photograph. The stormtrooper version was photographed by Billie Fenton and photoshopped by Kim’s father (who’s done a great job). See the pre-photoshopped version here.
