Of Boba Brains and Bantha Blood: Halloween in the Star Wars  Universe

Life is short and eternity is forever, and it’s impossible to gauge the consequences of anything that we undertake — but I can honestly say that way back in 2007, when my agent first approached me about writing a Star Wars zombie novel (as we were referring to it way back then), I had no idea of the far-reaching implications of such an enterprise.

Nothing makes Star Wars fans happier than a chance to suit up and show off their costumes. Whether it’s Stormtrooper armor or Jedi robes or even a big box decorated like a Gonk droid, Star Wars costumes have always been popular. Fans my age will remember a day long ago when the only real option at Halloween was building Vader armor out of cardboard. Or wearing the sad little Saran Wrap gowns that said “Star Wars” on it when what you wanted was a faithful recreation of C-3P0’s torso.

How to Make a Great Pit of Carkoon Bundt Cake

Jennifer Landa | October 24, 2012

Carkoon Cake 1

Brain cupcakes. Chocolate eyeballs. Worms in dirt. These are the types of desserts I look forward to eating every Halloween. For this year’s festivities, I wanted to create a treat that puts a Star Wars twist on those traditional spooky desserts. In my opinion, nothing says scary like The Great Pit of Carkoon and the deadly Sarlacc that inhabits it. Being digested over the course of a thousand years is what nightmares are made of!

While we all love Star Wars for its positive message, swashbuckling thrills, and seemingly endless amount of Cool Stuff (lightsabers, Jedi, X-wings, blasters, the list goes on…), it’s easy to forget that an essential part of the Star Wars mix is fear. It’s one of the tenets of the dark side, and as such, it plays a big role in the films. And while Star Wars obviously isn’t gore-filled, there are spooky moments, jump-out-of-your-seat moments, and emotionally scary moments. Here’s a rundown of some the scariest scenes and moments from the Star Wars films.

Ewoks & Wookiees & Droids, Oh My! A Halloween Tale of Star Wars’ Vinyl Past

How strong was the Star Wars frenzy in 1977? That year a stylized version of the Star Wars movie poster blew past the top-selling poster of all time, that of Charlie’s Angels star and blond sex symbol Farrah Fawcett (look her up in Wikipedia, kids!). So is it any wonder that everyone wanted to be a character from a far-away galaxy that Halloween?

A Nearly-Instant Leia Costume

11-Quick-Leia

Halloween approaches! You’re rushed for time, but want to show your Star Wars love. I have a super-quick Leia project just for you! Leia’s A New Hope look is so iconic that it’s easy to make an instantly-recognizable homage to every Star Wars fan’s favorite princess. This isn’t going to be a screen accurate version, but it’s perfect for those times when you get a last-minute invitation to a costume party, or if you just want to add a little Rebel chic to your wardrobe. You will need some basic sewing skills, but this is all fairly simple stuff. Best of all, it will only take you an hour or two.
