Disney Characters Dressed Up As Other Characters for Halloween, Take Three

Artist Isaiah K Stephens’ previous sets of Disney characters dressed up as other fictional characters are great and all (Mulan as Xena!), but they didn’t have Meg from Hercules dressed as Catwoman. Hey, we’re all allowed to be biased toward our favorite Disney princesses.

An Engagement Ring Fit For A Kick-Ass Space Princess

Victoria, aka ScruffyRebel, from Syfy’s Heroes of Cosplay got a fantastic moment captured on film during the finale. Her boyfriend Jinyo proposed while in Star Wars cosplay, with a Leia-inspired ring, and with an assist from the one and only Peter Mayhew. Just one thing, Victoria was wearing a Star Trek uniform. Awkward! Not really, but I had to say it. Because of the show, they couple had to keep the news under wraps for six months. I can’t even imagine. The ring was created by Paul Michael Design, who you may remember from their past geek-related work on the Adventure Time and R2-D2 engagement rings.

May the Mouse Be With You: Star Wars Themed Mickey Mouse Ears

You can use these Star Wars Mickey Mouse ears made by Etsy seller And The Thread Goes On to prepare for a Disney Star Wars Film, or to just walk around Walt Disney World. Disney already sells some Star Wars themed ears, like the R2D2 pair that you can buy at the parks, but these designs let the wearer be the Jedi, Sith Lord, Wookiee, Bounty Hunter, or Princess of their choosing, as well as the iconic Disney mouse. Shop owner Jessica Danker has even made some of these hats based on buyer requests.

Things We Saw Today: Princess Leia and the Seven Ewoks

Right after Leia wakes up she grabs a blaster and shoots a Stormtrooper who’s sneaking up on Han. Agreed? Oh, and who’s going to step up and draw Han being unfrozen from carbonite by a True Love’s Kiss from Leia? (by Kevin Keele, via /Film)

Brian Wood, on Leia Organa the X-Wing Pilot

I simply applied logic to the situation: If we, here, learn to drive at age 16, why wouldn’t someone in Star Wars learn how to fly as a coming of age thing? Luke did, as a farm boy. Wedge did, working his parent’s gas station. Why not Leia, a daughter of privilege? She can handle firearms, she basically takes over her own escape from the Death Star. She survives torture. She BEATS torture, actually. Later we see her on speeder bikes, fixing the Falcon, shooting more dudes, and so on. It’s almost insulting to suggest she can’t fly an X-Wing, the Rebellion’s fighter of choice.Brian Wood, writer of Dark Horse Comics’ latest Star Wars title, Star Wars, which aims to rewrite the Star Wars saga as if An New Hope was the only source material.

I suppose one could say that as a major leader of the Rebellion, she was too valuable to risk her life in near-suicidal raids on major Imperial bases like the assault on the Death Star… but even that breaks down when you consider that she was down on Endor with the rest of the raiding party. And hey, we’ve got plenty of fictional precedent for the leaders of small groups of fighters saddling up with their crew, from President Bill Pullman in Independence Day to Admiral Adama in Battlestar Galactica. And now that we know there were female X-Wing pilots… The conclusion seems unavoidable.

Adorable Book Darth Vader and Son Gets Much Needed Sequel: Vader’s Little Princess

I’m putting you on notice, Internet. Why didn’t anyone tell me that Jeffrey Brown announced that he’d be making a sequel to Darth Vader and Son at San Diego Comic Con? Vader and Son was super cute, but it certainly left a pretty big thing out: the fact that Luke was a twin! Where was his sister’s book? This first image from the book, of Darth Vader indulging his daughter in a tea party with an Ewok, is pretty damn compelling, if you ask me. It’s a good thing there’s only pretend tea in those cups, because how would he even drink it?

Brown has also made some seasonally appropriate gift tags, if you’d like a cheerful candy-cane holding Darth Vader to adorn your gifts, available over at Comics Alliance.
