When we weren’t paying attention, we accidentally started a ‘Capable Ladies of Star Wars’ edition of our What Would X Wear feature. Honestly, we just trip into these things. Anyways, when we put out a call for character suggestions last month, my fellow Tosche Station writer Nanci suggested that I do some for the Capable Ladies of the Expanded Universe and so it just seemed natural that Mirax Terrik would be the subject of today’s post.
The daughter of a smuggler and a capable entrepreneur in her own rights, Mirax Terrik kicks some butt in multiple arenas. She also knows how to dress for the occasion and pull off a slinky dress with the best of them. In other words, she has a pretty excellent wardrobe somewhere aboard the Pulsar Skate.
We’ll start relatively casual yet oh so chic with this outfit by Carolina Herrera.
What you really need to know though is that she can definitely rock a fabulous gown for the right occasion. Like these two dresses by Alexandre Vautheir and Versace. (Just try and tell me that Mirax doesn’t have great legs.)
There’s something about Mirax that says she’d rock a good jumpsuit just like this Jason Wu one.
Ain’t no party like an Errant Venture party and no one brings it like Mara Jade Skywalker and Mirax Terrik Horn.
I’ve been a fan of the friendship between Mara and Mirax ever since Luke and Corran agreed that the they of them should never meet for fear of trouble. In the Dark Tide books, there’s a brief exchange about how Mara and Mirax were arrested once but later exonerated. Clearly they found that trouble. I’m still waiting for Mike Stackpole to write the short story explaining what exactly they got up to.
Doing this shoot was just a fantastic amount of fun and I’m super glad we did it. We might’ve looked ridiculous at times but as a wise man once said, “You can’t look dignified when you’re having fun!”
Fun piece of trivia: I actually named my car the Errant Venture because it is a red SUV. I’ll let you guess how many ‘WE’RE TAKING THE ERRANT VENTURE ON A JOY RIDE’ jokes Nic and I made on the drive to the convention. Spoilers: A lot.
I’d like to take the time to thank the ever wonderful Nic for agreeing to bring her Mirax costume to Katsucon so we could do this little photo project and I’d also thank Heather of House Zhobot, the amazing photographer who captured these ridiculous moments.
All good stories start in a cantina, right? (more…)
