  3. Lucasfilm Confirms Stormtroopers Aren’t Clones, Female Stormtroopers Now Canon

    Aren't you a little too WHITE and MALE to be a stormtrooper?

  4. Australian Cosplayer’s Stormtrooper Armor Stops Snakebite

    Of COURSE this was in Australia.

    "What kind of person creates armor that restricts the soldier's vision so much?" you ask idly, watching extras shuffle around in stormtrooper outfits. "ONE THAT UNDERSTANDS THE BEST GUARD AGAINST THE SERIOUS THREAT OF SPACE SNAKES," I interject, "IS CONSTANT VIGILANCE."

  7. Oh, The Feels: 501st Legion Send Stormtrooper Suit To Another Bullied Girl

    Meesa getting verklempt.

    I guess they have a lot of Clone War crimes to atone for: an international group of Star Wars fans named after Vader's 501st Legion have gone from battling Jedi to gender bias. The world's largest Imperial costuming organization is giving girls literal armor with which to protect themselves from bullies: a pint-sized Stormtrooper outfit built to the exact specifications of the original movies.

  8. MTV Cribs Visits Coruscant, Features A Sweet Stormtrooper Pad

    Wookiees really do make the best milk.

    Ah, the early 2000s - a simpler time, when lace-up denim was totally okay and MTV Cribs was huge. As it turns out, the Cribs machine also existed a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away too - and in this episode, the crew visits Coruscant, to check out the crib of a super-rad Stormtrooper.

    The exhibit is called Art Wars, and it features the iconic baddies "left at the mercy of some of the best the art world has to offer." The helmet designs here are by Ben Moore, Mr. Brainwash, Damien Hurst, Andrew Ainsworth, Bran Symondson, D*Face, Joana Vasconcelos, Yinka Shonibare, and Antony Micallef, respectively.

  12. The Men Of Star Wars Walk The Runway In Designer Threads

    TK-421 Why Aren't You At Your Post?

    John Woo (not the Face Off director, he insists) has created a series called "He Wears It." It features mostly Star Wars men (and one lady) in outfits you wouldn't see members of the Galactic Empire wearing. Perhaps this is what they prefer to rock while on leave? You can find limited edition prints of most of these in his Etsy shop but take a look at what Darth Vader, Stormtroopers, C-3PO, and more are stepping out in these days. (Wooszoo via io9)

And let me tell you, you have not known joy/fear until you've heard Darth Vader say he's going to show you "how to paint your nails." (via Bit Rebels) Previously in Nail Art

  16. This Stormtrooper is a Six Foot Tall Cake With Rice Krispy Legs

    As far as geeky cakes go, this fully edible stormtrooper by Amanda Oakleaf Cakes certainly takes the, uh, cake. Standing a whopping six feet four inches and weighing over 300 pounds on Rice Krispy Treat legs, this cake apparently required whole new cake-making methodologies. The results speak for themselves, as does the fact that it fed around 600 attendees to the Boston Arisia Sci-Fi Convention. Who knew the shocktroops of the Galactic Empire could be so delicious?
