Star Wars Day Challenge: #LeiasLeftLeg

Tags: , , ,

If you’re a regular on the internet, you might remember Angelina Jolie ‘photobombing’ (or legbombing) the internet with #AngiesRightLeg – i.e. the right leg that she displayed so flamboyantly at the 2012 Oscars. Well, in honor of May the 4th, aka ‘Star Wars Day’, Roqoo Depot has decided to pay homage to this newly found tradition of ‘legbombing’ and to keep it going – with one of the most prominent legs in Sci-Fi history: Princess Leia in her Slave costume. Yes, you read right. We want to see who can work the best Photoshop magic and humorously insert Princess Leia’s Left Leg into random (or not so random) pictures. Why the left leg, you ask? Using the photo on the left for reference, we have determined that Leia prefers to display her left leg, over the right. Not mention how #LeiasLeftLeg also makes for one epic alliteration.

So, start your pod engines and race to Photoshop, #LeiasLeftLeg will be photo/legbombing the internet in no time!

To submit your entry, please tweet it to us @roqoodepot, post it on our facebook page or leave a link in the comments to either a post on your blog or a direct image link!
