Poe Dameron is a flashy, spectacular pilot with a smile that can melt any glacier on Hoth. So when we where trying to figure out a Poe-themed food for our Star Wars Party in a couple of weeks, we needed something that was worthy of his pizzazz. A Po’boy might sound too humble, but I assure you it is anything but!
The big question on everybody’s mind when The Force Awakens movie posters came out was: Where is Luke? Well, we now know there was a reason he was missing from the posters (BTW, brilliant marketing guys!), and just like the movie, we have been saving Luke for the very, very end. Today is the last of our The Force Awakens pixel pattern series.
(Some mild spoilers) I hate movie previews, mostly because I hate hate hate spoilers. I was scared that the previews of The Force Awakens was going to reveal too much information, just like most other previews, for most other movies. However, I really have to hand it to JJ Abrams – not only did he not reveal much before hand, some of the stuff we though we knew from seeing the previews, turned out to be wrong. Yet, I don’t feel the least bit tricked.
I had big plans. We were going to be X-Wing pilots for this year’s May the Fourth Party. But plans change. And this time for the better! Instead of making costumes, I have had the pleasure of being part of a big, exciting, creative project of a different sort. It is super secret as of right now, but I will talk about it on my post this Friday!! (Be sure to tune in!)
So, in lieu of our own gear, I am featuring Wedge for our weekly Perler/cross-stitch/Lego/pixel/mosaic pattern.
So young. So innocent. That’s what I thought anyway until I watched Robot Chicken. There are a handful of scenes in the Star Wars movies that will just never be the same again. Luke at Uncle Owen’s breakfast table is one of them. Who would have thunk that the Tosche station was not, erhm, really a store?
As you know, we are all HUGE fans of DIY Star Wars costumes here at M4P. Give us some fleece, duct tape, glue gun and an X-acto knife and we are ready to try just about anything! So when I look for costume ideas and inspiration for us, it really makes me smile when I run across others making their own too.
