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.

The Jawas were hard at work, and here’s some of what they found on
Etsy this week.
I think this is adorable! Not so sure I support the suggestion of Empire Strikes Back Babydoll tunic dress/top leggings as pants, though. Still, it’s cute. Just wear real pants. ($29.99)
TypsyGypsyTees also has several Star Wars items, including this AT-AT onesie ($14) or a girl cut probe droid tee. ($20)
A by Return of the Jedi ‘boob tube style dress’ Natty Boho. ($60)
Kick it in style at your next con with by Star War Chucks Chylde. ($50)
A ? Why not? It’s by Return of the Jedi tutu XPoppysWickedGardenX. ($40) Also in ANH, Yoda, and a .
Clone Wars halter top Let your freak flag really fly with the Boba Fett ski mask by Unclaimed Baggage. ($70)
Or keep your hipster cred with the by Star Wars cycling cap MMildredSnodgrass. ($32)
(The Jawas are still hard at work sorting listings, so stay tuned.)

There really is something for everyone on Etsy. I’m prepping a few posts for next week, and I ran across a Luke and Mara Wedding cake topper. (What a post-ROTJ EU pairing has to do with The Clone Wars I have no idea.) The seller, Hildoom, also has a Yoda Birthday Cake topper for sale.
Cars. Jalopnik is on something of a streak, exploring the hot rod culture of and likening the Star Wars ABT Audi R8 V10 to something that “Anakin’s coke dealer” would drive.
Back to school. StarWars.com takes a look back at the 70′s with retro class cear from Helix.
Lists. Palpatine makes #1 on Sci-Fi Squad’s top ten sci-fi deaths.
Cakes. A neat by Da Bombe Desserts. Millenium Falcon
If only… io9 suggests swapping the writing staffs of and the The Clone Wars The Venture Brothers, which may be the only way to get me to cheerfully watch the former.

You get this. Actually, the
personal stalker-shadow is the least disturbing of the two unofficial Twilight products to emerge (so to speak) this week, but it is the only one actually appropriate to slapping up on this site at 500 pixels wide. The other one is so not safe for work or direct linking, if you get what I’m saying, and I think you do. ( via)

Trendhunter Magazine has compiled a list of what they call 45 Creative Star Wars Innovations but is really just a list of cool random stuff they found on the internet. It’s a mix of official and fan-made things we’ve seen before and some we haven’t. Enjoy! ( via)

Since it’s Monday after a holiday weekend, I figure we might as well just shrug it off with some cute: the
Yoda Bot, Princess Leia Bot and Chewbacca from Bolts and Bots. Check their blog, Etsy, or Flickr for more bot creations.

This is far from the first
Hello Kitty/Star Wars mashup we’ve seen, but it is perhaps the cutest.
