This week for #WearStarWarsEveryDay we have a shirt from Mexico as I wrap up my cruise, as well as two donated shirts. This recap covers the fourth week of my wearathon, and an update on fundraising for Collateral Repair Project, a non-profit organization that provides assistance to urban refugees.
I may have gone on a vacation in the sun, but #WearStarWarsEveryDay is still going strong. Here’s what I wore for the second and third weeks of my effort, and an update on fundraising efforts for Collateral Repair Project, a grassroots organization that provides assistance to urban refugees.

With The Force Awakens out now, and Rogue One on the horizon for the end of the year, this seems like a perfect year to celebrate Star Wars every day, and I’ve taken it to the extreme! I hope to wear a different Star Wars-themed clothing item for every day in 2016, and made my goal into a Force for good by turning this project into a charity fundraiser. “Wear Star Wars Every Day” kicked off on January 1, and I’m raising funds for Collateral Repair Project, a grassroots non-profit that provides emergency aid, education, and community support for urban refugees in Amman, Jordan.
If you would like to support this effort, you can make a per-day pledge here. Even pledging 10 cents or 25 cents per day can add up to make a real difference. You can also make a flat donation on the Wear Star Wars Every Day GoFundMe page. After only a few days, we’ve raised $675 in flat donations, and have a total per-day pledge rate of $3.50 per day. You can also help extend my streak by lending or donating Star Wars apparel for me to wear. Get tons more info on the project and what your donations can do for refugees at our Wear Star Wars Every Day resource page and watch the daily updates on the Wear Star Wars Every Day Facebook page or on Twitter with the #WearStarWarsEveryDay tag.
In the midst of all the April Foolery yesterday, StarWars.com shared our first look at the official Celebration t-shirts, but they are indeed for real. I doubt these will be the only t-shirts – I’d expect at least one in-panel reveal, probably for The Force Awakens – but it’s almost certainly the bulk of them.
This is a last chance sale for some of the shirts – and I have to wonder if that means our last chance for the EU ones – and the sale will last through May 5.
Ashley Eckstein introduces Her Universe’s Hot Topic exclusives, including a few things we haven’t seen yet.
The merchandise selection for the show store is out, and there’s plenty of great stuff to chose from. We already knew about the Expanded Universe maquettes, above. (There’s a zombie stormtrooper one as well.) As for the rest, I’m guessing the Jar Jar whoopie cushion and retro-style bag will be big sellers… See them, and a few of my other picks, below.
And yes, there’s a ton more at the link – StarWars.com has a handful of high res pics – and the Han and Leia couple shirts are back as well.
‘It’s A Trap,’ the above design by Brian Kesinger, is the winner of We Love Fine’s first Star Wars tee design contest. I’m glad to see that the franchise is finally harnessing the massive amount of fan talent out there for t-shirts.
I do wish there were less bounty hunter stuff among the top choices, but I didn’t vote.
