Baby Star Wars Adidas Posters

Bonnie Burton | March 8, 2011

Hong Kong artist Dorothy Tang created these whimsical posters to celebrate the launch of the Star Wars x adidas Originals Collection.

Done in the Chinese propaganda poster art style of “Nianhua” (New Year prints) these chubby babies called “pang wa wa” sure would have made the Star Wars saga extra-cuddly.

How to Make a Snow AT-AT!

So you have a lot of snow and you’d like to recreate one of the coolest battles in the Star Wars films? Get your mittens on and start packing snow into an AT-AT worthy of Hoth!

Miguel Valenzuela writes:

My daughter sitting on top of an AT-AT Snow Sculpture. It’s about 4 feet tall (1.2 meters). I know the main canons are a bit big but anything smaller just wasn’t holding or showing up. I built it over a period of two days. About 3 hours the first day then one hour the second day. By leaving it overnight it helped freeze the top layer making it stronger.

Learn how to make an AT-AT Imperial Walker Snow Sculpture here.
