It’s hardly a secret around here that I love Star Wars and Mara Jade. So when one of our readers sent us an email asking what we thought Mara Jade’s wedding dress should have looked like, it seemed like a no brainer for a post idea! (And I profusely apologize for how long it’s taken me to get around to putting this together.)
The first thing you have to know is that Star Wars: Union is a 4-issue comic that details the wedding of Luke and Mara and that it is pure glorious cheese that you just have to embrace and roll with. For example, take the below two pages in which different designers try and convince Mara to wear their wedding dress for the big day:
Unsurprisingly, she choose to go with none of the above and instead with a very simple sleeveless white dress with some pink lace on the bodice. It wasn’t the most exciting of dresses to say the least. In fact, it’s so plain that I had to dig out my floppy issues of Union to remember what it looked like. But hey– you know how this goes by now: Challenge Accepted.
I’ll go ahead and admit up front that I’m not a wedding nor a wedding dress expert. I tend to only watch Say Yes To The Dress when my roommate’s watching a marathon of it and I get sucked right in. However, I do still plenty of opinions here. Obviously. I’ll also go ahead and admit that I didn’t find a dress that made me scream ‘THIS IS MARA’ and I also get that this is all 100% subjective.
