r2 sarong

Summer will be here before you know it, and this R2-D2 sarong is going to look great on the beach. You might even want to accessorize with a matching hair band.

Truth be told, everything in RoobyLane’s Etsy store is fantastic. It’s loaded with nerdy skirts, bags, scarves and more.

r2-d2 purse 1

You never have to lose the droid you’re looking for again if you carry this R2-D2 handbag. The dome shaped patent purse appears to be made from vinyl, and I love the glossy finish. It looks like a freshly scrubbed and shined Artoo. Besides resembling the beloved astromech, the purse handles have snazzy Rebel Alliance accents and the interior is lined with Star Wars logo fabric. Beep, boop. I’m putting it on my shopping list.

These Star Wars Bowling Bag Style purses come in either either Boba Fett or R2-D2 designs and I’m betting they’ll look pretty awesome the next time you want to go retro on a night out.

Do they make Star Wars bowling shoes? Now I have to do some research.

Head after the break to see more pictures.

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.

r2d2 yoga pants

Not content with yoga pants featuring the likes of Jem and TMNT? Well then, these R2-D2 versions might be more to your taste.

Plus, R2-D2 sets the bar low as far as fitness is concerned. If you can move your head from side to side, you’ve pretty much mastered his yoga technique.

vader and r2-d2

Wherever R2-D2 goes, he brings magic with him. Kids chase after him, and he makes adults smile. At Emerald City Comicon, a LEGO R2-D2 (L3-G0) encountered a little girl in a Darth Vader costume and their interaction will melt your heart. Darth Lily carries on a conversation with R2-D2, and when she realizes the astromech is afraid of her Vader mask, she removes it and hugs him. Cue the chorus of “Awwws.”

Flail over the cute in the video after the break.

star wars wedding 1

Geeky weddings can be classy affairs, and Chris and Ann’s fancy Star Wars-themed nuptials are proof. The bride wore custom painted R2-D2 heels that may be the best Star Wars shoes I’ve ever seen—but that’s not all. The groom’s cake looked like a Star Wars: The Old Republic lightsaber, the main cake featured Star Wars symbols, they used a lightsaber cake cutter, and gave away wedding favors in Rebel Alliance orange (it’s an official color) bags.

Can I sign up on a list to be invited to all the geeky weddings ever?

bad droid tee

The Bad Robot logo practically begs to be mashed up with Star Wars, and R2-D2 is a natural choice. The blue and white droid looks great as the red robot. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before a droid builder’s club makes a real-life version of this design.

This Bad Droid currently has a two-three week lead time. If you want it, I recommend pre-ordering now.

r2-d2 minion

When R2-D2 isn’t busy saving the day, he likes playing dress up. I’m not sure how many outfits he has in his closet, but he looks good as a minion from Despicable Me. This could be a huge spoiler for Episode VII!

Artoo could be Phil or Stuart, I’m not sure. It’s hard to understand him when he introduces himself in beeps and boops. Regardless of his name, he’s got the costume down – the shiny blue stripes in the front really make the look.
