Today, we are doing a simpler version of the Lightsaber Hilt Napkin Rings. This easier version requires less time, less mess, and less sharp tools… but is just as much fun to make…maybe even more so. ‘Cuz who doesn’t enjoy doing crafts with paper towel rolls and Duct tape 🙂
I have mentioned before that my mom (“M4P Mom”), regularly calls with ideas for the blog. Unfortunately, she has more ideas than we have time. What we really need are some Minions to keep up. (Where are Bob, Kevin, and Stewart when we need them?)
So we have to prioritize – and doing these Lightsaber Hilt Napkin Rings were a no-brainer. I think this is one of the coolest things we have done in a long time, here at May the Fourth Central.
For generations, the lightsaber has been know across the galaxies as the weapon of heroes. Elegant, swift, lightweight and very effective in the right hands. One could assume such a design would never be improved upon. However, with version 2.0 we have added an amazing new feature! Now you do not have to cry if it gets wet from a spilled Banta milk, or wipe off all that Tauntaun spit. It is perfectly safe if you plan on visiting Otoh Gunga. The new and improved Lightsaber 2.0 is waterproof and, it floats!
I read in an article once that stated that Samuel Jackson might be the only actor considered a genre all by himself. He exudes cool! Him + the name of the movie “Snake on a Plane” made me go see that movie. I have forgotten everything about he plot (I am sure it was pretty bad), but still, it sounds awesome! Unfortunately Mr. Jackson doesn’t get to do ALL that much in the Star Wars prequels, but him just loitering about makes Episode I, II and III better. I heard that he specifically asked for a purple lightsaber because his character was so bad-ass that he was the only Jedi that could harness part of the dark side, and yet stay a Jedi. His lightsaber hilt even had the letters “BMF” on it. (Who isn’t a Pulp Fiction Fan?!)
