Star Wars: Celebration V was an amazing experience for me as it was my first Celebration. I have attended dozens of conventions but none have compared to the magnitude of a gathering that is 100% STAR WARS! Years ago, I had seen the Vader Project, online, and was very impressed by it, but hadn’t thought much of it since then. Imagine my surprise to see that the 501st Legion had put together a similar project at Celebration V; the TK-Project, using Stormtrooper helmets instead of Darth Vader helmets, and all to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation! My wife and I were […]
Enjoy this quick cartoon based on a joke a little boy told me at San Diego Comic-Con. He was pretty proud of the pun and told me I should draw it (pushy little guy!). Katie Cook is a cartoonist and writer. She is kind of a big deal… to her cat. You can find her art and comics at katiecandraw.com, gronkcomic.com and find her mumbling like a raving lunatic at on Twitter @katiecandraw.
When Star Wars Uncut was first released I was curious to see if fans could not only recreate Star Wars, but also reimagine it. Just two months after Uncut’s release, Montreal-based animator, Malcolm Sutherland, submitted three scenes that blew everyone away.
Editor’s Note: If you haven’t heard of Star Wars Uncut, you must have just recently discovered the internet (in which case welcome!) but as quick refresher to those of you with internet access and short memories, Star Wars Uncut is a film made up of hundreds of fan-created 15-second segments put together to create a shot-for-shot remake of the original Star Wars film. It’s one of those ideas so brilliant that we here at StarWars.com could only scratch our heads and think “wish we’d thought of that”! But we didn’t: our newest contributor, Casey Pugh, did.

The fans have spoken, the guest judges have made their picks, and at last the winners of WeLoveFine’s first-ever Star Wars T-Shirt Design Contest are here!
This past Saturday I had the honor and privilege to act as Lucasfilm’s official judge for the “Best Costume(s) from the Star Wars Galaxy” award at San Diego Comic-Con’s annual Masquerade – presented by HBO (I remember this because the whole shebang started with a long True Blood commercial).
Whew! San Diego Comic Con is over and it was SO much fun! It was great to see all of my old friends and meet some new ones! One of the highlights of my Con experience was the third annual Her Universe panel. I was inspired by the NBC show Fashion Star, where up and coming fashion designers have the opportunity to show their designs to the experts and retail buyers.
One of the greatest things about San Diego Comic-Con is getting to see all the incredible costumes fans make! Whether a cosplayer spends a day or a year on their creation, their costumes are always a fun sight on the convention floor. Nothing is more exciting than seeing your favorite heroes or villains in person! This year we saw everything from an impressive looking AT-ST to a rhinestone-encrusted Stormtrooper. Here are some of my favorite Star Wars costumes from SDCC 2012!
