Suddenly I feel way less guilty about not looking too hard for these figures. The fug is strong with them…
Leia by Space Captain Steve, aka Falterdan aka Steve Stamatiadis, an animation and video game pro who is, coincidently, the game/art director for the PS2/PSP versions of The Force Unleashed. There’s a smattering of Star Wars work both on his DA and spacecaptainsteve.com galleries.
I also really like this pouty little Mara Jade, who makes me me wish they’d just pull a Batman: The Animated Series on the post-ROTJ EU already.
Mike Barrera customizes the Unleashed Leia figure as… undead Slave Leia. And the fanboys are still turned on. (Thanks, Bonnie!)
Visual proof that Luke, Han and Leia got it on in A New Hope. Amazingly, totally safe-for-work. (via sunnyskywalker)
Princess Bunhead provides instructions for replicating pretty much all of Leia’s hairstyles. Good luck!
Thanks to everyone who posted entries; it was a lot of fun to read through them. They are all posted in their own special catagory: Princess Leia Contest.
I’d also like to apologize to JeffP for overlooking his filk when I was initially searching for Leia-related parodies, and to JeffS and Musical Edition fans for summarily disqualifying songs from the musical due to my association with them. Obviously it would be difficult to remain impartial there.
Okay, enough preamble! I’ve decided to give two awards for this contest (yes, it’s just that arbitrary).
The first is for Best Filkitude (which is my made-up word for including all aspects of a good filk, including paralleling themes from the original song and your filk subject, scansion, and lyric construction, as well as comedic value) and goes to Firgin for Short Cute Princess (in a White Dress).
The second award is the Nearly-Making-Me-Spew-Hot-Tea-All-Over-My-Monitor Award, which goes to Yav for Big Buns. While I may already have a comedic leanings towards that song, thanks to SirDan’s rendition of the original as sung by JarJar, this filk made me crack up on it’s own.
Thanks to all who participated! I’m sure we’ll do this again, as I find more holes in our collection (or on a filking whim, who can say?).
Remember, if you wish to participate in the Leia Filk Contest, all entries need to be added to the commments here by 11:59pm PST tonight.
