bb8 cart top

Apparently, Redditor Ov3rKoalafied asked this lovely Rey cosplayer if she would drag him around on a cart if he made a BB-8 costume.

The joke is on him because she’s going to trade him for rations at that sandwich shop. After all, you work up an appetite at cons and the food ain’t cheap.

star wars kimonos

We love a good kimono cosplay—especially Star Wars. That having been said, Etsy seller SkyCreation has added to her Star Wars-inspired collection with kimono dresses based on Poe, Rey and BB-8 from The Force Awakens.

Take a closer look below. [click to continue…]

star ships skirt

Well, about to battle anyway (I assume). This skirt is a powderkeg—a stiff summer breeze could set off the greatest battle the galaxy has ever seen.

Star Ships Skirt ($35)

mark hamill

Every now and again, Mark Hamill does something that reminds you that he’s an awesome person and the perfect ambassador for all things Star Wars. For one thing, even though he has over a million followers on Twitter he finds the time to interact directly with fans.

Case in point: when asked by cosplayer Jessica Bentley if he thought it was okay for her to cosplay Luke at a con, Hamill channeled his inner Yoda with the words “gender matters not”.

So there you go—the Jedi Master has spoken.

You might already be familiar with Anovos’ amazing and expensive costume replicas, from their Kylo Ren costume to this stunning replica of Captain Phasma’s helmet, and even their non-Star Wars stuff like this replica of Captain Picard’s smoking jacket that’s not a smoking jacket from the later seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation. If not, a brief journey through our “anovos” tag will reveal that they produce a ton of high end costume replicas, with a spectacular eye for detail and screen accuracy. Seriously, go have a look. It’s fine. This post will keep.

Back? Good. Anovos have announced they’re doing a replica of the outfit that Rey wore for the majority of The Force Awakens. In other words, if you want to cosplay Rey and only the best will do—look no further. [click to continue…]

Women have more options for geeky clothing than we’ve ever had in the past, but Instagram user Cetine Dale is operating on a level that goes way beyond t-shirts and pajama pants with her series of Star Wars designs. This is geek haute couture at its finest and I’d love to see more of this kind of thing on the runways in Paris. Check out more of her work below. [click to continue…]

Cosplayer Kelli Jenkins brought artist Ashley Johnson’s Mermaid Leia art to life in this fantastic cosplay. I love the R2 jellyfish. That would be an awesome umbrella to have.

I hope more cosplayers take on characters in Ashley’s series after seeing this. This Catwoman would be at the top on my wish list.

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…]

Based on that famous slave outfit Jabba forces Leia to wear, this bikini is probably a whole lot easier and comfortable to wear to the beach.

The swim top is one piece and you have a choice of full or Brazilian cut bottoms. Both the top and bottoms come in sizes XS to large.

Product Pages: Gold Metal Swim Top $59.00 / Gold Metal Brazilian Bottom $41.00 each / Gold Metal Full Bikini Bottom $41.00

I so wanted to make an “Itsy bitsy teeny weeny Leia gold metal bikini” reference, but I didn’t. Oh wait, I just did. Sorry.
