24violins.com does a cover of ‘Rey’s Theme’ from John Williams’ The Force Awakens score, using “only violin sounds and Native Instruments Maschine plus Komplete Kontrol.” They lost me at “only violins,” but I do know the result is pretty fantastic. (via)
Steve Sansweet’s Rancho Obi-Wan will highlight fan contributions to Star Wars fandom in their first book, Inspired by the Force: Star Wars Fan Artifacts & Art, which will debut at Celebration Anaheim in April. It’s intended to act as “an exhibit guide,” so the Rancho Celebration exhibit will also be fan-heavy this time:
The Rancho Obi-Wan Experience exhibit will feature fan objects and art starting in the late 1970s through today, from an airbrushed van tire cover and hand-tooled leather backgammon board to a Chewbacca tissue box cover and bird house, from amazing art mash-ups based on a print by Goya and a painting by Picasso to bizarre limited edition figurines made by urban artists.
The Rancho Obi-Wan exhibit at Celebration VI featured several fan creations – including one by a Jader – but this will no doubt be an even greater variety. I just hope they have more floor space this time!
In any case, the book will be $25 and pre-orders for pickup at the con will begin in March.
Time to start thinking about all the trimmings for Celebration VI… We already know all the official stuff that will be on the ground there, so why not gather up some fanmade accessories to impress the crowds with now?
Celebration VI is almost 5 weeks away now, and you’ve probably been thinking about it for a while. Still, after watching the chaos of SDCC, it’s hard not to get inspired to up your wardrobe game from mere t-shirts… And for those of us who use sewing machines more as bedside tables than as actual tools, that means heading to Etsy. First up, above, are some great dresses.
Her Universe is hosting a panel celebrating geek girl fashion at San Deigo Comic Con, MTV Geek reports. They’re on the lookout for “custom-made cosplay ,” but I have the feeling other geek custom-wear will be welcome as well!
the panel will feature a lineup of experts — made up of fashion buyers from Hot Topic, designers, and stylists — who will be on-hand to judge the best outfit! So don’t miss out on the chance to win great prizes, see awesome fashions, and talk all things Geek Fashion!
The panel will be Saturday at 6:00pm in Room 25ABC.
