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.
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.
Bigger, badder, and just like all of Kylo Ren’s and General Hux’s ideas, completely over the top.
I can imagine their brainstorming session:
KR: The Death Star was really cool. Darth Vader was a genius.
GH: Hrmph, he failed! He was not thinking BIG enough.
KR: WOAH! You mean A BIGGER Death Star?
GH: Yes. The problem with the first 2 Death Stars was that they were not big enough to conquer the universe. The New Order is more powerful than the Empire ever was, and as such we need something that will cause the appropriate fear and destruction throughout the galaxy. We need a (Hux almost whispers)… Starkiller Base… made from a real planet.
KR: #$&*#(@ BADASS!
