The fandom minute: The internet loves costume contests, slave Leia, and the concept of a Jabba sitcom
November 12th, 2009 by Dunc · 2 Comments
Rebelscum contest winners. The fansite announced the winners of their annual Halloween costume contest yesterday – this (Robot Chicken-inspired?) Ponda Baba by Michael took first place in the adult contest.
Sing it. Are you sick of seeing that old pic of Carrie Fisher and her ROTJ stunt double being treated as some sort of rare, leaked revelation? Yeah, me too.
According to Jabba? The King of Tatooine? io9′s Annalee Newitz mines Bonnie’s interview with the The Box director Richard Kelly for his idea of a Jabba the Hutt tv show. Scary thought: It’s not really out of the realm of possibility.

A good wingman is hard to find. A t-shirt tribute to everyone’s favorite secondary character. This is an excellent shirt to wear when asking Aaron or Mike to sign your arm. (Yes men, you can get one, too.)
If you thought Episode I was slashtastic… Episode VII is among the five posters for sci-fi spinoffs that Sci Fi Wire really wants to see. Nice idea, but their suggestion of Peter Jackson is a bit much. (I mean, really? REALLY? Did no one see his King Kong? Lord of the Rings is one thing, but no giant gorilla movie has any right to go on that long.)
They don’t serve your kind. Duncan Jenkins’s guide to cantina collectibles.
Distressing damsels. Leia and Willow’s Sorsha are among Sci Fi Squad’s top ten princesses of sci-fi and fantasy.
Lucas Online is hiring! Pablo and Bonnie have been out and about urging folks to apply for the Project Web Developer job. One could certainly do worse…

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.

It was inevitable… Hot Chicks With Stormtroopers, AKA a nicer take off of internet ‘sensation’ Hot Chicks with Douchbags, or as we like to call it in this fandom… No, sorry. Too easy. (Speaking of douchebags, io9′s weekend commentators are certainly doing their darnedest. Bravo, gentlemen.)

Let them eat slime. This Jabba cake is appropriately disgusting yet totally hand-made. Pretty impressive.
Don’t strain yourself.Is Star Wars science fiction or fantasy? It’s sci-fantasy. Duh.
Listicles. Princess Leia is one of Yahoo’s lethal ladies; The prequels bottom out io9′s list of science fiction prequels, beating out even You-Know-Who’s Dune books on their scale of crappiness. Ouch.
Road trip! If you missed it, The Vader Project is now in Pittsburgh.

- Technology: An impressive Artoo casemod made with a trash can and a mere $120 in additional parts.
- Crafts: The Darth Vader hula girl. I always knew he had it in him.
- The blogside: Bryan Young defends Jar Jar Binks over at Den of Geek. (via)

Han and Leia by Steph Swanger takes the Gone With the Wind pose back to the source. (I figure since in past years I’ve tormented you with twincest, photoshoppery, and Law & Order, it wouldn’t hurt to go traditional. Just this once.)
