People sometimes ask me why I switched my allegiance to the dark side when it comes to Star Wars (which is only sort of true because I love characters on both sides). If I had to give an honest answer… it’s because the Empire and First Order’s colors are way more my thing than the orange and olive of the rebels. Black just goes with everything and when you toss in some dark red… *chef kiss*
I’ve been wanting to put together an outfit around this Death Star inspired scarf from Prophecy Girl for a while and today was finally the day. I’m a huge fan of this piece as it’s both stylish and comfy. Also! It comes in both black/white and black/red. What’s not to love?
The print on this dress is possibly my new favorite thing and let me tell you how bummed I am that I could only get it on one thing. We talked about Black Milk Clothing’s recent Star Wars collection in a past Fav 4 post and I ended up getting the reversible dress! I don’t now how often I’ll get to wear it but I’m in love with it.
Dark Side Skater Dress: Black Milk Clothing
Gold Jacket: Rock and Republic
Booties: Cole Haan
(Maybe I’ll even do an outfit post with the blue light side side one day…)
When you’re in a loooong term relationship with a video game series and you just love all of the characters so much but you especially love Visas and her design… you have to make the costume at some point. I finally got a KOTOR group for Celebration and Dragon Con this year and because I’m an overachiever, I decided to get the costume done early for Katsucon and approved by the 501st. Both goals achieved.
Getting to see pictures from this shoot was doubly awesome given that I only had a very vague idea how the costume looked while I was wearing it. (Before you ask, my vision in this costume is not great and I could mostly just see shapes and needed a seeing-eye trooper.) There are a few minor fixes I’m hoping to do to the costume before Celebration but otherwise, I’m really happy with how it looks!
Visas Marr: Bria
Once again, thank you to my amazing British Clone Anna for the photography at Katsucon! She is always amazing to work with and doubly so given my inability to see.
If I could marry a jacket, it would be this one. Send out the wedding invites because Bria+Vader Jacket=OTP.
This Darth Vader jacket was just one of the pieces from the Star Wars collection that Her Universe did for Hot Topic in the fall. There weren’t a ton of pieces involved but it absolutely elevated the lines and took it to a new level. When I first saw the jacket online, I was very intrigued but unsure how I’d feel about it since I am a leather jacket snob. When I saw it in the store, I knew that I had to have it. Ever since the weather finally warmed up enough past winter coat temperatures, we’ve been in a very committed relationship.

Bionic Dress: Mitmunk
Black Pumps: Coach
Also, I’m a massive dork who decided that doing a self-timer photo shoot with a lightsaber was a good idea. But I doubt that surprises any of you.
