Wear Star Wars Every Day: Week 38 & getting ready for Force Friday

Wear Star Wars Every Day Week 38

Week 38 of #WearStarWarsEveryDay saw the first day of autumn, and a good week of Star Wars wear as we got the word out about the Star Wars podcast listener challenge for Force Friday (Sept. 30). Huge thanks to our donors in this time period on the GoFundMe for Collateral Repair Project: Anonymous, James Malloy, and Mike Cooper. Also big thanks to Kristen who donated one of the shirts I wore this week, and thanks to everyone else who lent me some Star Wars apparel for this week: Patricia, James, Paul, Caitlin, Shauna, and James! Yup, everything worn this week was from you all, my fellow Star Wars fans!

Tomorrow, September 30, is Force Friday (or Rogue Friday), when many stores will be finally putting out Rogue One merchandise for sale. Don’t forget that we are also doing a special one-day fundraising drive for Collateral Repair Project for listeners of Star Wars podcasts. So if you want to show that listeners of your favorite show are the most generous Star Wars fans, chip in on the GoFundMe and leave a note in the comments box about which podcast you’re representing! Last week, Beltway Banthas, a podcast on Star Wars and politics, gave Wear Star Wars Every Day a shout out, and they’ll have me on their next show, out very, very soon to talk about the Force Friday drive.

Don’t forget, every day I wear a new and different Star Wars apparel item, my daily pledge makers will chip in $4.65 to Collateral Repair Project! This week, we’ve got a baseball jersey, a hooded sweatshirt, cool clothes from two Celebrations, and some longer sleeves for the start of fall. Plus one of the few Ewoks cartoon series clothes out there. This review for Week 38 covers September 16 to September 22 of my wearathon, and an update on fundraising for Collateral Repair Project, a non-profit organization that provides emergency assistance, education, and community support to urban refugees.

Get more info on what Wear Star Wars Every Day is all about, or make a donation via GoFundMe or a per-day pledge. While each day I continue my project, another $4.65 is donated by our pledge makers, but I’d love to get that total up to $5.00 even (or higher!) for the last quarter of 2016.

Time for a new colossal-sized episode of Star Wars Story Talk as Yowie the Skunk, Baby Jawa, and I cover the latest in Star Wars stories, and we have a lot to talk about: a few recent Star Wars events and check out not one, not two, but three Star Wars books! I give a recap of all the Star Wars goings-on at Salt Lake Comic Con, held at the beginning of September, plus talk a bit on Star Wars Day at the San Diego Padres, and dive into three books: the newest Star Wars Little Golden Book: I Am a Princess, and Star Wars: Aliens of the Galaxy by Jason Fry and the newly released Star Wars Year by Year: A Visual History, Updated and Expanded Edition by Pablo Hidalgo. Plus an update on Wear Star Wars Every Day and a triple dose of Baby Jawa fun time! Continue reading

Wear Star Wars Every Day: Week 37


#WearStarWarsEveryDay kicked off a new challenge: the Star Wars podcast listener challenge for Force Friday (Sept. 30). Otherwise, just a regular week in wearing different Star Wars clothes every day – no new donations in Week 37, but we’ve already gotten some for Week 38. Thanks to everyone who has lent me a t-shirt that I’ve worn this week: Patricia, Bryan, Donna, James, and Lori!

Remember, every day I wear a new and different Star Wars apparel item, my daily pledge makers will chip in $4.65 to Collateral Repair Project! This week, we’ve got a mashup of The Force Awakens and The Little Prince, Admiral Ackbar for Rebel Legion, and some throwbacks to the past: classic posters, SW:CCG cards, stuff from two Celebration Europes, and one that was worn to the first Star Wars Celebration. Plus I recently got to talk up the Wear Star Wars Every Day charity fundraising campaign to my friends, Sarah and Rich, on the Skywalking Through Neverland podcast.

This review for Week 37 covers September 9 to September 16 of my wearathon, and an update on fundraising for Collateral Repair Project, a non-profit organization that provides emergency assistance, education, and community support to urban refugees.

Video: Jedi vs Sith Dance Off at Salt Lake Comic Con

As part of the pre-show entertainment before the Mark Hamill panel at Salt Lake Comic Con last Thursday, a dance crew came out to bring the Force into balance with a Jedi and Sith dance battle on the main stage at the Vivint Smart Home Arena. Did the Light Side prevail, or did the Dark Side get to boogie on home? Watch and find out!

Wear Star Wars Every Day: Week 35 and August prize drawing winners!


Since August is not known for its holidays, I turned the last week of August into the #WearStarWarsEveryDay events and holidays week, celebrating some fun fan events and some random holidays, none of which are in August! Plus we have some nice donations to report! Big thanks to Jennifer, Ian, Tim, and an anonymous donor for helping us raise over $80 in the past week, pushing us up to almost $2,600 raised for Collateral Repair Project.

Thanks to Trina for her donation of a St. Patrick’s Day Star Wars shirt! Also, thanks to everyone who has lent me apparel seen this week: Anastasia, Mark, Christian, Dartanian, James, and Paul! Remember, every day I wear a new and different Star Wars apparel item, my daily pledgemakers will chip in $4.65! This week, we’ve got a piece of a Rebels costume, a Christmas sweater, two shirts related to theme park Star Wars events and more! This review for Week 35 covers August 26 to September 1 of my wearathon, and an update on fundraising for Collateral Repair Project, a non-profit organization that provides emergency assistance, education, and community support to urban refugees.

August prizes 2

And now to announce the winners of the August prize drawings:

  • The uncorrected advance copy of Star Wars: Ahsoka goes to Jennifer Q. And as a special bonus, this copy is signed by the author, E. K. Johnston, whom I met at Salt Lake Comic Con.
  • The Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016 Crew shirt goes to Maliha S.
  • The copy of Star Wars: Aliens of the Galaxy by Jason Fry goes to Tim L.
  • The Rusty Droid bottle opener from Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016 goes to no one :(. To be eligible, all one had to do is both have liked the Wear Star Wars Every Day facebook page by the end of August and shared one of the August daily photos on their own FB page, and according to my notification tracking, no one did both. So I guess I’ll save the prize for a future prize drawing.

Thanks to everyone who has supported Wear Star Wars Every Day so far, both our one-time donors and our per-day pledge makers. If you’d like to chip in at a dime a day or a quarter per day (or more), make your pledge at the per-day pledge form and you can choose whether to support the project for the entire year, or just start at the beginning of September. Or you can just make a one-time or a recurring monthly donation at GoFundMe.com/WearStarWars2016.
