Han Solo but make it fashion? Or something like that.
Anyways go see Solo tonight! It was fun!
One of the best things about Dragon Con is that you can pull together some pretty amazing costume groups because some of the best cosplayers around bring their A-Game to the con. My friend Ned and I assembled a pretty fun group of Original Trilogy costumes last year for Dragon Con but this year… this year we went all out and got people from the entire freaking Saga.
While we didn’t have quite as full of a group as we’d hoped, we’re still really freaking pleased with how things turned out. Plus, I had an excuse to make one of my favorite Leia costumes! Spray painting that poncho was way more fun than you’d think. I want to wear this costume forever.
I can’t wait to get some better shots of the costume out in the woods or something but for now, have some awesome moments from our giant photoshoot that we had to shift from the Hilton lobby because we were literally stopping traffic.

When I saw the press release for Her Universe’s new items for Star Wars Weekends, I knew that I had to have that Han Solo dress. Actually, I wanted it so badly that I asked some friends of mine to pick me up one of the dresses that first weekend so I could make sure that I’d get one and oh boy do I not regret it! It’s incredibly comfortable and flattering on tons of body types. There were a lot of fellow fangirls walking around wearing it at Star Wars Weekends. Point is, I whole-heartedly endorse this dress for any Star Wars fangirl!
Also? I regret nothing about this next picture. NOTHING.

Thank you to Heather of Zhobot for the photography!
After getting some feedback, we’re going to start something new here for Her Universe posts. If you’ve ever met the lovely Ashley Eckstein, you know that she’s a bit on the shorter side so it can be hard sometimes for us taller girls to get an idea from the website of how the pieces will fit especially when it comes to length. So! I’m just under 5’7″ and am wearing a Medium in the picture. I found that it fits a bit looser than the Rogue dress (which I also got in a Medium) and could have probably gotten a Small and been comfortable.
Summer’s just kicking along like a hot little number, and even I need to angrily rip off all my blacks once in a while. It really only took this super rad Han & Chewie tee from Forever 21‘s latest geek outreach program, though, so four for you, Forever 21, four for you.
Star Wars and I are still not on good talking terms, though.
Just so we’re clear.
This is only residual good feeling that Anakin Solo still carries for me.
Don’t look at me like that.
