Uniqlo is an awesome brand that mixes engineering and fashion in beautiful ways — and while most of their lines focus on fresh seasonal basics, the collaborations that have come out of the brand have delighted fandoms across the board. From One Piece to Star Wars, Uniqlo has delivered awesome lines for years, and seeks to continue that with their all-new LEGO collection rolling out just in time for Spring.

Initially launching as a line for kids, Uniqlo’s collaboration with LEGO now includes a wonderful range of choices for adults (in men’s sizes only, sadly) to help the grown-up LEGO fan show off their fandom in loud or subtle ways.

Take a closer look at some of our favorites below.

legodress

Behold the geek equivalent of the “little black dress”. This 12,000 LEGO Technic brick LBD was created by LEGO builder Brian Augustine.

“My wife was a willing participant in showing it off.”, Augustine said. “I made her a handbag to match and added a few small touches. I then complemented her with my own LEGO built belt, bowtie and glasses.”

The dress is more like a bodice and skirt combo which helped make the dress fit better. Brian’s wife reports that the dress is wearable:

“But is it comfortable?” D’Agostine relays this review from his wife: “On the first day my wife answered the comfort question by saying, ‘It’s not UNcomfortable.’ By the second day though it seemed to be fitting better and she agreed that it was comfortable, though maybe not for frequent use.”

LEGO fashion just got an upgrade with these new fabric clothes by Korean accessory shop Leese Design. They’re made for LEGO minifigures and can be switched in and out in a snap.

You can get each outfit for $5 or get the entire set for $25—which is a pretty good deal.

There are plenty of stylish and professional options here already, and Leese plans to release more designs in the future. Take a closer look at some of the designs below.

anti-lego-slippers-brand-station-4

Everyone knows that stepping on a Lego brick with bare feet is the worst kind of pain. However, it seems that Lego has finally acknowledged the problem with these anti-Lego slippers that feature extra protective padding.

The slippers were created as part of a collaboration between Lego and ad agency Brand Station for a holiday promotion. Unfortunately, only 1500 pairs will be produced, but they are being randomly given away to people that create a wish list on the Lego France website.

Not to worry though. Even if you don’t secure a pair, these Lego slippers would probably be a suitable replacement.

We’ve seen some impressive custom Lego Boba Fett cosplay in the past, but Imgur user iqwerty built a spot on version that’s scaled up for adults. He also documented the process.

Using a CAD program to maintain an accurate scaling, it took him only seven weekends to design, construct, and paint the entire costume.

Well done! Check out the entire build process in the gallery after the break…

Etsy seller MermaidSaysJulia has made these fantastic Star Wars bracelets out of Lego bricks. There is R2-D2 or C-3PO with all the bits set into bezels and bracelet links. The best part is that their little droid heads even swivel! You can order them individually or save a few dollars and order them as a set. She also has a set of matching C-3PO earrings.

A Star Destroyer is generally a thing that strikes fear in the hearts of men, but not this one. Okay, maybe there were some nervous jitters on the part of Stephen Dempsey who built it to propose to his girlfriend, Amanda. She’s a big Star Wars fan so he hid the ring inside the ship. He told The Daily Dot:

“Our love is like this ship,” he told Amanda. “Its shields defend from any outside force wanting to get in and destroy us.”

Isn’t that just the cutest? And yes, they plan to have Star Wars integrated into their wedding day by playing the theme as the enter for the reception.

This Lego version of Star-Lord’s mask from Guardians of the Galaxy was built by Orion Pax who says:

STAR LORD, the main character from Guardians of the Galaxy, like every famous rapper, for sure is wearing a nice looking mask. This is built with the red light brick, so the eyes light up. The printed pattern reflects nice in the dark on any surface. The scale is close to 1:1!

Light up eyes and a 1:1 scale? This thing is brilliant!
