When I first wrote about this Sith Elsa cosplay by Amanda Dawn, it was still being made. It’s so nice to see it complete. What a fantastic job.

This handmade leather purse features Jabba’s pet, the annoying little Salacious Crumb. From the product page:
This purse is hand-painted by me (that’s five years at art school working for ya) with professional-quality acrylic paint, and sealed with UV-protective gloss finish coating. Acrylic paint is flexible, water-proof and very durable, but it’s not invulnerable to scratches.
It’s made of leather and has a large center pocket with a zippered side section, two zippered front pockets, and a magnetic pocket on the back.

One of the things I love best about fashion these days is just how many companies have geek couture. Once upon a time, if you wanted to show your love for Star Wars, you had the option of a t-shirt or halloween costume, but it wasn’t the sort of thing you could wear if you wanted to dress up a bit.
Luckily, companies like We Love Fine are committed to making fashionable geekwear, and now they’ve teamed up with Goldie to create a Star Wars boutique collection.
My personal favorites are the Princess Leia Dress (complete with a hair buns hoodie), a very chic Empire Strikes Back skirt, and the Dark Side Glamour dress, but they have other great styles as well in sizes small to extra large.
Check out more pictures after the break.
This Darth Vader Japanese dress is adorable isn’t it? If the Dark Side isn’t your thing, you can also show off your favorite ship with the Millennium Falcon Ladies A-line dress.
Head after the break for a look at the Falcon A-Line.
On Sunday the second annual Geekie Awards took place in Los Angeles, celebrating geek culture with 12 different categories. This year a new category was added that focused on the growing area of geek fashion. The Fashion and Armor category, presented by Vanichi Magazine, was added after awards creator and showrunner Kristen Nedopak saw the fashions people wore on the red carpet at last year’s event.
“As a female geek, I’ve never hidden the side of me that embraces being a woman, and that means dressing up or down when I please. ‘Geek Couture’ has grown tremendously in the last few years, and more women are realizing they can still be geeks and look beautiful too!” Nedopak told Fashionably Geek. “We’re seeing designers getting creative with the art of fashion in these genres, and we wanted to honor that in this year’s show.”
There were five nominees in the category specializing in armor, steampunk, corsetry, and more. The winner will receive a full feature fashion spread in an issue of Vanichi Magazine.
Find out who won and get a glimpse of all the nominees’ stylish, geeky products after the break!
It’s hard to tell if we’re looking at actual designs that will be used in the film or good (but fake) fan art, but there’s no doubt that these Han Solo and Snowtrooper costume images from Indie Revolver are making the rounds and are being cited as the real deal. Real or fake, they are interesting either way.
So far, we have a look at Han in a trenchcoat that’s less like his Endor camo and a little more Browncoaty. There’s also a snow uniform that looks like like his old Hoth gear. As for the troopers, no word on which side of the fight they’re on, but they appear to be snow troopers.
You can see the images after the break.

Go back to school like a bounty hunter with this Boba Fett striped backpack. The minimalist design captures the basics of Fett’s costume, and it’s much lighter than wearing full armor. If you’re not headed back to school, remember that backpacks can come in handy for conventions.
