Here are some of the things I’ve micro-blogged over @clubjade in the last week or so.
Sci-fi raver chic, or… Eventually, some fan costumer is going to get their hands on this fiber-optic fabric, and we’re going to be seeing walking holograms at cons.
My god! “Star Trek’s entire history in all media over the last four decades has been nothing but revisions and reboots. ” And so it is. Fascinating stuff… And very familiar.
Speaking of a cycle of never-ending reboots… The companion for the new Doctor Who was announced last week. Quote of the hour: “…I feel like I’m going to be watching Doctor Nine Oh Who One Oh.”
For my peeps. Jezebel takes the TV teen queens of the early 90′s head to head. Blossom or Clarissa?
Geek decor. Twenty brilliant bookcases.
Peter Roan (peterjr1961) captured these Rebel cheerleaders (and droid friend) at New York Comic Con this weekend. I hope there are enough of these folks out there to do a whole Bring It On skit with their Sith counterparts.
(And anyone care to explain this? Statue? Costume? Life-sized bobblehead?)
Rebelscum posted their 2008 Costume Contest Winners winners last night. Erin (Maris Brood) and Kristin (Zombie Leia,) above, took first and second place in the adult category. The wee Wicket is Oliver, and while he didn’t place, he is adorable!
Last year we were wowed by their Jabba puppet at the Wolburn Halloween parade, but this time around the 501st New England Garrison and Rebel Legion Alderaan Base brought a dewback and a landspeeder, plus an actual teenage Ashoka. Check out all the gallery at 501neg.com, and direct your comments to tk7602.
Crafty threefer at the official blog last night: Bonnie turned up three homemade costumes for dogs (with instructions!) spotted a list of knit hats and visits the LFL Starbucks.
As photographed by Cayusa @ Flickr. He also spotted a Jedi Clampett and an unusual lightsaber duel. But my favorite has to be the Cookie Killer. Only at Dragon*Con, folks…
Our own Nori created this stunning Jedi baby ensemble for a forthcoming bundle of joy named Ben. Complete with a teeny knitted lightsaber! Be sure to click through to see the layers and other details.
An entire Boba Fett costume made out of Lego. Oh Fettheads, never change.
Photographer Steve Schofield photographs British sci-fi fans – more often than not in costume – in their homes. (via)
