The folks at Anovos are releasing another incredible costume, and this time it’s an AT-AT Driver from Star Wars. In typical Anovos fashion, it is screen-accurate and will make you look like you stepped right off the set of the film. Features include:

Helmet with finished, lined interior and adjustable helmet suspension rig, meant for even the largest heads.
Built-in environmental / air system in helmet for comfort.
Bubble lenses installed in helmet.
Chest armor and chest box, with flexible hoses.
Canisters on end of hoses feature magnetic points, thereby allowing easy attachment to the magnetic points at the helmet’s back “mohawk” for easy maintenance.
Chest box features functional LED screen, mirroring faux indicator functionality of artifacts as used on screen.
Back armor with distinctive computer-board style.
100% polyester gray jumpsuit, with pockets and zip-front.
Lower-leg harness connected to back plate.
Faux leather gloves. Left glove features greeble, as seen from original artifact.

We’ve featured the amazing work of Prince Armory in the past with gems like this medieval Joker and Loki armor—but holy sh*t with this Darth Vader version.

Owner Samuel Lee notes:

Conceptually this was a very challenging project. When you work on a very iconic character you have to think long and hard about how much liberty you want to take with the design. On one hand you don’t want it to play it too safe and have it a borderline carbon copy; that would be boring. And on the other you don’t want to go so far it is no longer recognizable or make design decisions that puts the fan base up in arms.

So I settled on trying to capture a number of the design elements within the classic Vader such as the banding patterns and many design lines, and then expanded into the fantasy realm with the red inlays and articulated armor designs.

The design scheme overall is of course very alternate universe. Ultimately I was going for a blend of Sci-Fi, Medieval, and Mystical Fantasy.

I’m a fan of Tom Hodges in general, but I’m especially a fan of his Star Wars art. So these Star Wars/Disney mash up tees are so up my alley, it’s insane.

They’re titled “The Hutt Never Bothered Me Anyway” and “General Stitchious”.

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 belly

Tony Giordano and his wife Stefaney are expecting. They’re big Star Wars fans so, naturally, they got R2-D2 to help keep things running smoothly until the big day.

Artist Nick Wolfe painted her belly and Daniel Deutsch supplied the life-size droid (and the pictures).

Wonderful things happen when you combine Star Wars and Disneyland—even when it involves running.

Such was the scene at Disneyland on Sunday morning, January 18th for the first Disneyland Star Wars-themed half marathon. The half marathon was part of Disney’s Rebel Challenge weekend, which also held a 5k and 10K run on Friday and Saturday.

The pictures (and cosplay) have been so great, so we thought we’d share some with you.

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.
