You can keep warm and toasty and rock one of the most iconic hairdos in the galaxy with this knit Princess Leia beanie from ThinkGeek. The hat is lined with fleece so you don’t have to worry about catching a chill while you’re running around Echo Base on Hoth. Plus, pulling hair buns on is much easier than trying to pin your hair into place.

See what the beanie looks like on a model after the break.

This Chewbacca dog might not pull your arm out of its socket, but he could kill you with cute. The picture was posted by redditor ejara80 whose friend dressed up the little pooch and entered him in a Star Wars costume contest at Petco. He won third place, which seems entirely unjust because he is the cutest ever. Perhaps there was a Jedi mind trick involved in the judging.

Those of you looking to cosplay as Boba Fett at your next convention, or this Halloween, can now build your very own Z-6 jetpack just like he wore in the films. The plans come from Kyle Gilbert who has posted the full how-to over on his blog and also created an instructable. Now you’ll be ready to claim the next bounty Vader sends your way.

This beautiful watch contains sand right from the Tunisian set where the Star Wars Tatooine scenes were filmed. It’s currently a kickstarter which is fully funded with plenty of time to pledge and get your own watch. Each case is made of solid 316L medical-grade steel with Seiko-Epson quartz movements and leather bands. The sand is sealed inside the case and actually moves around as you move your wrist.

Funds from the kickstarter will be used to make the watches and also to help restore the crumbling sets in Tunisia. Some are even at risk of being swallowed by growing sand dunes. This is the second series of watches and it will be the last since the molds are reaching the ends of their lifespans.

These are being made in limited quantities so don’t delay if you want one on your wrist!

Rodarte debuted its Fall/Winter line back in February and it featured high fashion clothing adorned with Star Wars images that everyone loved. Now they’ve done an official photo shoot out at Skywalker Ranch with some of the characters in attendance. Who knew Threepio could strike a pose?

MLP Mandalorians

Mandalorian armor can be mixed with anything, including characters from cartoons. These mercs are at least 20% cooler in their My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic costumes. They’re dressed like Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash, and I can only hope the rest of the Mane Six as Mercs were hovering nearby at Dragon Con.

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.

sith elsa

Never one to rest on her laurels, cosplayer Amanda Dawn, who we’ve featured here before, has created a Sith Elsa cosplay based on the Sith Disney Princess art by Ralph Sevelius.

If you’ll be at DragonCon, keep an eye out for her. Just try to stay on her good side.
