We’re still going strong over
on Tumblr, though I have been very lax at mentioning it here. Here are few things that haven’t made the blog proper.
High fashion. Remember the ? It featured several of Queen Amidala’s costumes from Star Wars spread in the April 1999 issue of Vogue The Phantom Menace.
Long reads. How obsessive fans built a better Han Solo blaster is strangely fascinating. Or maybe drop the ‘strangely.’
A Major Award. Of course there’s a . Of course. Star Wars version of the lamp from A Christmas Story.
It is the year of the GIF, after all. Who doesn’t love the floating head of Ewan McGregor?
Quick hits. Was that a dead Jaxxon on The Clone Wars? The Star Trek Into Darkness poster gets a There are already Star Wars remix ! And no roundup is complete without Scoundrels costumes . Star Wars infographics
Highsnobiety has an up-close look at some of the fall/winter 2011 collection from their

Boing Boing’s Xeni in San Francisco, a window display that doesn’t exactly make us think of fashion… Though it is pretty cool.
Will it blend? Saturday Night Live’s Kristen Wiig wore a Darth Vader meets . Sorry, Kiss of the Spider Woman dress to the Emmys Bonnie: I’m pretty sure she full deserves that D. But at least we get blog content out of it.

Lists of dubious (and not-so-dubious) honors. Luke is #1 on Spike’s list of the top ten white trash heroes of cinema, while Lando is one of io9’s ten most corrupt mayors in science fiction.

I’m sensing a theme today! Tricia Narwani over at Suvudu counts down the

I’m clearly a bad Star Wars fan because I never noticed her white boots, but they are pretty bitching in that ultra-70’s-space-chic Alderaani way. (Major props to Narwani for not going for the slave outfit: It does have truly awful shoes.)
Battlestar Galactica, Harry Potter and the White Witch in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. I won’t lie to you: Her chain-mail battle dress in that movie? Most kickass.
…Stormtrooper high heels. What will they think of next? No, wait – I’ve seen that
