Dignified C-3PO & Chewbacca Portraits!

Bonnie Burton | June 22, 2010

Whenever I watch that scene in A New Hope where C-3PO and R2-D2 get kicked out of the Mos Eisley Cantina, and I wonder if C-3PO was wearing a derby hat if he would have gotten a Blue Milk?

If Chewbacca wore a monocle, would Leia really rather kiss a dapper Wookiee? (I know I would!)

I’m not the only one who wonders these things. Luckily, artist Greg Peliz put these ponderings into rather dignified Star Wars character portraits of C-3PO, Chewbacca (based on the original dapper Chewie painting by artist Robert Mackenzie), and Boba Fett.

Star Wars Couture Force Fashion?

Bonnie Burton | June 22, 2010

Say what you will about Darth Vader, the guy knew how to make a fashion statement. Illustrator John Woo not only understood the power of dark side threads, he decided to give some of the most well-known characters in the Star Wars galaxy a high fashion makeover.

Hong Kong-based illustrator John Woo presents his latest series of works, dubbed He Wears It. The series takes on an obvious theme, highlights key characters from the Star Wars film franchise and decking them out in today’s more hyped brands. Featured brands include the likes of COMME des GARCONS, Viktor & Rolf, Supreme, visvim, Maison Martin Margiela, Thom Browne and Band of Outsiders.

Seth Green Makes Star Wars Pancakes

StarWars.com Team | June 17, 2010

Looks like fans everywhere including our favorite geektastic newlyweds — actors Seth Green and Clare Grant — are adding a bit of the Empire to their breakfasts with the new Star Wars pancake molds from Williams-Sonoma.

After tying the knot a little more than a month ago, Seth Green and Clare Grant aren’t working on perfecting their marriage. They have bigger, tastier things to worry about – like making perfect pancakes.

“What we’ve been doing a lot of is trying to perfect – we got all of those Star Wars pancake molds from Williams-Sonoma for our wedding – so we’ve been perfecting the art of pancakes,” Grant told People at a benefit for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation on Sunday. “It’s not as easy as it sounds.”

The Ultimate R2-D2 College Prank

StarWars.com Team | June 2, 2010

Now THAT’S the droid we’re looking for! Granted, it is hard to miss.

Carleton’s Goodsell Observatory gets turned into R2-D2 by an unknown group of enterprising students — complete with sound effects. All the “decorations” appear to have been draped or taped onto the dome; there was no defacing with spray paint, etc.

WATCH VIDEO: Goodsell R2-D2

Every year we do a Star Wars craft demo at Bay Area Maker Faire to show fans of all ages how to make something fun and show off their love for Star Wars at the same time.

In the past, we’ve shown kids how to make Yoda dolls, Star Wars marble magnets, Ewok sock puppets and Yoda stick puppets.

This year since puppets were such a hit, we showed fans how to make Star Wars bag puppets of Admiral Ackbar, Yoda, Princess Leia and an Ewok.

AT-AT Wedding Cake!

Bonnie Burton | May 17, 2010

Just when you thought that infamous Dead Tauntaun Cake was the best bit of Star Wars fandom to ever invade a wedding, here comes the toppled AT-AT wedding cake with Ewok cupcakes!

This toppled AT-AT is one of my favorite cakes to date. I love the mini Admiral Ackbar and Mon Mothma but I think maybe the topper are the Ewok cupcakes that accompany this masterpiece. The bride, Rebecca Dudeiros, says that this cake wasn’t even made in a bakery. She had her buddy (a pastry chef herself though) Teresa Ulrich do it custom for her.

DIY Star Wars Fingernail Designs!

Bonnie Burton | May 11, 2010

Show off your love for Star Wars with nails worthy of the Empire.

All you have to do is take your passion for nail design and mix a little bit of Star Wars in it. Transform your nails to resemble a white stormtrooper or the evil lord Darth Vader.

Begin with a coat of transparent nail enamel. If you have decided to sport a stormtrooper design on your nail, then apply a coat of white nail polish. On this, you could gently paint on the facial features of the trooper using a black shade. Top it off with a dry fast top coat.

It is extremely simple to do and the reaction you get from your Star Wars crazed boyfriend, or husband, will make you feel like their prized possession. You may even be invited to celebrate the day with them. Go Girl Power!!!

There is a lot you can do with Star Wars on your nails. You can sport multiple characters on your nails and transform them into a style statement.
