5 Geeky Things We Want This Week, STAR WARS Edition
If you are the same kind of geek as me, you have a ton of Star Wars gear, but are always happy to acquire more. Before Christmas gets here and you are disappointed to receive a homemade sweater instead of a Hot Toys Rogue One Deathtrooper, treat yo self to some of this cool, slightly more modestly priced Star Wars gear.
I made my husband a Han Solo costume for Halloween a couple years ago, and sewing the stripes on the pant legs was the most obnoxious part. (You have to hand sew most of it, and I am strictly a Singer girl.) If they ever wear out, I am going to try to talk him into these. He’s never worn leggings, but he does favor skinny jeans, so these aren’t that much tighter, right? I also may pick up a pair for myself. They’re pretty cool.
I kind of hate cutting pizza, but the knife I use doesn’t make lightsaber sounds while I lacerate the toppings, cheese, and crust, so that may be part of the problem. It might be more fun to cut pizza if you can pretend you are battling Kylo Ren in the forests of Takodana. This pizza cutter has a lightsaber grip, which I am sure is somehow ergonomically beneficial as well.
If you are going to work a Star Wars theme into your holiday parties this year — and let’s face it, you are — this set of serving bowls and platter will make for a lovely tablescape. Hopefully your food will be more appetizing that Rey’s gross instant bread portions, or your guests just might sic a rathtar on you.
Glow lights can be an excellent way to help your kid (or you!) get over their ridiculous fear of the dark, but I don't know if this particular set is going to be great for that, mostly because your only choices are Darth Vader or Stormtroopers. They aren't exactly soothing images, but the rainbow colors do make them slightly less menacing.
We couldn't close out a Star Wars gear round up without a toy, and this one looks fantastic. Finally, you can take the command of an X-Wing and lead the assault on the Death Star. Hopefully it is everything you always dreamed it would be.
