Etsy scavenger: Halloween costume picks

Jedi gear isn’t too hard to make yourself (or so I’ve heard) but if sewing isn’t a priority, you can probably do worse than looking around Etsy. Here are a few listings the Jawas have scrounged up.

Need a Jedi cloak? Mulligan Stew Boutique is on the case. They have three listings for custom-made Jedi trappings: an adult cloak ($85,) a child’s cloak ($60,) and complete child costume ($140.)

Sultry Delights also does custom Jedi tunics ($150,) among other things.

Actually, there are several Jedi robes. My favorite listing is probably Brown Cloak of the Republic, featuring claims of fabric that resists “attacks by the dark side.” ($129.95) But your best bargain may be CustomKids, which will make a child-sized Jedi robe for only $19.99.

And of course, there are the Slave Leias, including an ‘inspired by’ version for bellydancing.

Mickey Rocks! Congrats to Club Jade SDCC Masquerade winners

They had a little help from some friends, but we are thrilled for the Club Jaders who helped create and present ‘Bring it On: Rock the Mouse;’ winner of Best Presentation at Comic-Con Masquerade 2009.

Congratulations to Caitlin Shindler (choreographer and costumer extraordinaire).  Other Club Jade participants included Rogue Shindler, Mike Chiesi and Stephanie Chiesi.   Um. You rock?

Io9 has a nice gallery up featuring the cast.

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.
