According to Eye Style, each pair will last about a month of on-and-off wear. Yes, wear these EVERY SINGLE DAY. It would be quite the social experiment. [click to continue…]

Ever wonder what Jedi, the Empire, or Queen Amidala smells like? Well, now you can thanks to German company Lifestyle perfumes.

Jedi and Empire are listed as men’s fragrances. Jedi is said to evoke a “swaggering, fearless flair” and “sportiness” with a blend of pink pepper, water lily, musk and sandalwood. Empire mixes notes of lime, apple, amber, patchouli and tonka-bean for a “seductive fragrance”.

For the ladies, Amidala captures Padme’s “royal elegance” and “strong, indomitable will” in “elegant and sensual” vanilla, musk, and patchouli with notes of apple and tangerine.

Personally, I’d like to layer Amidala and Empire and see what that smells like.

The perfumes aren’t currently available in the States, but when has that ever stopped a Star Wars fan? [click to continue…]

As modern as Japan is, there are traditions that date back to feudal times that remain today. One of those traditions is using hairpins or kanzashi when wearing a kimono.

To drive that point home, these particular kanzashi are made by Wargo Nippon and feature three designs that are based on Samurai-era weaponry.

The brass katana and scabbard is adorned with silver chrysanthemums, the symbol of the Imperial family. The jitte kanzashi is based on the sword-busting weapons used by law enforcement. They’re brass coated in gold or rhodium, with a rayon tassels and a replica lantern used for patrol. Finally, the matchlock rifle kanzashi has a butterfly in honor of Nohime, the wife of samurai warlord Oda Nobunaga.

Form, function, and feudal Japan all in one. Not to mention beauty. [click to continue…]

High end Star Wars prop replicas are nothing new, but they’ve always been created by third-party companies through licensing deals.

Until now.

Behold the Star Wars Collectibles: Ultimate Studio Edition by Propshop at Pinewood Studios—the same folks that created props for The Force Awakens.

The first eight items in the line are from Star Wars: The Force Awakens and include Darth Vader’s melted helmet, Rey’s staff, Poe Dameron’s helmet, Kylo Ren’s lightsaber hilt and more.

Each made-to-order, limited edition replica has a display pedestal and comes packed in branded wooden crates inspired by the Star Wars universe. Naturally, they are extremely expensive and some will only be available in limited quantities. Initially, the collectibles will only be available in the states. See more props after the break…
