Becker & Mayer, the producers of the deluxe versions of The Jedi Path and Book of Sith, brought their newest books to Comic-Con. Watch the video to learn more about The Bounty Hunter Code (similar to the two previous in-universe type books), the more affordable version of Star Wars: The Blueprints, and the Barnes&Noble special book: Star Wars: Build R2-D2 Papercraft. Big thanks to Stephanie and Katie from becker&mayer for filling us in on these cool books!
The Club Jade Craft-athlon has finished its five craft-making events, and now the judges are scoring the last two events, and we have winners to announce for the “Star Wars Roll Model” competition. Each participant took an empty toilet paper roll and turned it into a character, and we had a tough time choosing from so many great entries.
The winner of the Roll Model event is Reynalyn Camoras for her depiction of Mother Talzin, using paint and crayon on a intricately cut and folded toilet paper roll.
Coming in on Talzin’s red heels were the entries were Blinky the Jawa, by Kitty Lewis, and Princess Leia by Jennifer Fuchikama. While Blinky sports a battery-powered tealight inside for the eyes, Leia’s spherical head was made by rotating rings sliced from the toilet paper roll. Rounding out the finalists, we had Michelle Brzozowski’s R2-Deetube and Barren Paper-rolla by Doug and Dajuan Kinney.
A newcomer jumps in to claim this event with one final event to be judged: the Vader’s Custom Tee challenge, where entrants turned old Star Wars apparel into something new. Stay tuned for the finish of the final event, and the awarding of the cool prizes from Del Rey. It seems that some of these entries should be included in the next edition of Bonnie Burton’s The Star Wars Craft Book.
Reader Rebel Without A Cause spotted this Star Wars scrapbooking paper, and it didn’t take much poking around to find some kits and even instant albums. I’m sure there are some traditional scrapbookers who’ve jumped on these, but I can think of plenty of uses outside the box.
