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.

star wars ring 1

Holy Ewoks! Look at these Star Wars ring designs! It looks like J.A.P. Studio had the license to make some creative Star Wars ring prototypes back in the late ’90s, and I wish they were available now. The statement rings feature more than just the usual suspects. I dig the R2-D2, Darth Vader, and Boba Fett designs but there are so many more – like a rancor ring, Ackbar, Bib Fortuna, and the list goes on. They are weird and delightful, and if I could wear one of them on each finger, I would.

Check out more examples of the rings after the break.

This custom made fabric features a design that looks just like everyone’s favorite little droid. It’s a cotton knit R2-D2 infinity scarf that measures 34″ long by 6.5″ wide and takes about 4 weeks to make, just for you.
