  • SWCVI: The Art of Ralph McQuarrie

    It sounds like a cliché, but when it comes to The Art of Ralph McQuarrie, preparations for the next Star Wars Celebration pretty much begin on the flight home from the last one. Despite having exhibited at all seven prior Star Wars Celebrations, Celebration V was a particularly challenging undertaking for us. For the first […]

  • SWCVI: The As You Wish Helmet Project: Boba Fett

    I could talk for days about Boba Fett, his popularity in modern culture, his mystique and his infamy, but my true passion for Boba Fett, as with so many things in Star Wars, is not so much the character of Boba Fett (after all, he was little more than a minor background figure with only […]

  • DIY Jabba the Hutt Shoes

    It’s no secret that I have a crush on Jabba the Hutt. What can I say? I find his laugh irresistible. So what better way to show my love for the coolest gangster in the galaxy than by wearing him on my feet! Recently crafters have been hand-painting TOMS shoes with their favorite Star Wars characters. There have been […]

  • Jedi Paper Tricks

    Fumiaki Kawahata’s amazing Origami Yoda is a very busy paper Jedi. There is usually a pretty steady stream of people discovering him and then tweeting their friends: “Someone make me one of these!” Or “Hard to fold this looks!” And every once in a while the stream turns into a flood, as happened a few […]

  • SWCVI: The As You Wish Helmet Project

    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 […]

  • Darth Wader

    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 […]

  • Star Wars Uncut: Malcolm Sutherland

    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.

  • Introducing… Casey Pugh

  • Project Runway: Star Wars Style at the SDCC Masquerade

    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).

  • Best Star Wars Costumes at San Diego Comic-Con 2012

    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 […]

  • Project Cosplay: Millennium Falcon Skirt!

    The Millennium Falcon holds a special place in my heart. It’s an underdog of a ship with a lot of wear and tear, but for me that always made it more fun to root for. And even though Luke Skywalker called it a “piece of junk,” she is surprisingly powerful and fast! Plus, saving Lando […]
