White House Hosted "Alice In Wonderland" Party Featuring... Chewbacca?

Obama's politics are not the only thing waaayy off. In 2009, the White House held an "Alice in Wonderland" themed party which featured the Star Wars character:

The event, so over the top that "Star Wars" creator George Lucas loaned out the original Chewbacca costume from the legendary film for an unknown participant to wear, was covered by a front event for the press in which the first couple handed out candy to trick or treaters. The president did not don a costume to that event, but first lady Michelle Obama wore a leopard-print sweater, cat ears and sparkly eye makeup.

It was the original movie costume used for Chewbacca, the lovable giant wookiee (pictured below):
