Sometimes, because I am an adult, I do adultish things like buy a house with hardwood floors and put down area rugs. This doesn’t sound like an interesting premise for a blog post, but I promise it actually is because here is my bedroom floor:
Why yes, those are X-wings on my floor. Ruggable has an entire line of licensed Star Wars rugs that are amazing, not to mention washable. When I discovered this, I immediately talked my husband into buying one (to be fair, it was not difficult). Did I buy Star Wars rugs for my kids’ rooms? No, I bought one for my room.
I actually really liked the red TIE Fighter Houndstooth one best, but the Rogue Squadron color scheme was better for the room. Plus, X-wings. X-wings! On my floor!
Aaaand then my husband bought the Millenium Falcon one for our office.
Then he was looking for something to put on the wall in there. When I said it should be something appropriate for the background of a Zoom call, naturally he showed me these from Displates. They are metal posters, super easy to hang.
So now we have lightsabers on our wall, too.
I think Ahsoka’s is my favorite but there are several awesome ones. (I would love a Mara Jade magenta one…)
How do you guys incorporate Star Wars (or your own fandom) into your interior decorating??Or is it just me?
Welcome back to our Star Wars coloring book club, where every now and then Kiri from Star Wars Anonymous and I color the same image to compare and contrast. Here’s our first effort for 2022!
I started out doing only cool colors to match Oola’s green skin, but then I got bored with that and kept adding more colors and now it looks like a rainbow hahaha. I could not get Oola’s skin color quite right either which bugged me.
Oola and Bob Fortuna in ROTJ were the first time Twi’leks were introduced as characters. I’m so glad the species has gotten more depth since then, especially in The Clone Wars and beyond with the Syndulla family. In Legends, I always liked the explanation of Twi’lek naming conventions from the X-Wing series:
An example of a true Twi’lek name was Nawar’aven. This name would be split into two parts when used outside of the local culture, becoming Nawara Ven
My light side Jedi Sage character from SWTOR was also a Twi’lek. She was actually the first character I created for that game, so she has a special place in my heart though she wasn’t the character I played the most.
Once again, a very happy new year to you all! I can’t promise how many of these SW coloring pages we will do this year, (probably not many) but I hope you will enjoy our efforts as much as we enjoy doing them.
Welcome back to our Star Wars coloring book club, where every now and then Kiri from Star Wars Anonymous and I color the same image to compare and contrast.
I had to double check that this was Jango Fett and not Boba before I started coloring. The double pistols are the clear giveaway that this guy’s armor should be blue. Also, his armor looks so nondescript, no personality or wear.
I have been a fan of Mandalorians since way back in Legends when Boba Fett’s real name was Jaster Meerel. (This has since been retconned at least twice.) I especially loved the Mando culture set out in Karen Traviss’s Legends books and the Knights of the Old Republic video games. The Clone Wars series also added some interesting things.
I am pleased to report that I finally have Disney+ and of course the first show I’m watching is The Mandalorian. I’m enjoying it vastly, spending half of the episode squeeing over Baby Yoda and the other half squeeing over the cinematography, music, scenery, and getting to see a live action loth-cat.
I considered coloring this picture as Mando from the show, but his armor is even more boring and colorless than Jango’s. Also, I couldn’t do that to poor Jango who’s already overlooked as it is.
Welcome back to our Star Wars coloring book club, where every now and then Kiri from Star Wars Anonymous and I color the same image to compare and contrast. We’re kicking off summer with the next picture in the coloring book, this Imperial mandala.
Once again I had no plan for this one, just picking colors as I went. It came out fine! The colors are bright and summery. Check out Kiri’s version here, which is also bright and summery!
All the circles here, including the Imperial crest and the Death Star, reminded me of a kind of sun/moon/eclipse theme. This, in turn, got me thinking about the most famous moon in Star Wars…not the Death Star, but the Forest Moon of Endor. This moon has always been a bit confusing: is the moon named Endor, or is the planet it’s orbiting named Endor? The answer: both! Endor the gas giant planet has nine moons, the largest of which is also called Endor. The others are totally unpronounceable, like many things in the Star Wars galaxy. (Another moon is Kef Bir, which is featured in The Rise of Skywalker as containing some of the wreckage of the second Death Star.)
I don’t really have a point to this tangent, except that it’s weird for a planet and its moon to have the same name. But it’s definitely not the weirdest thing in Star Wars!
Happy summer everyone! Hope you have plans to spend some time in the sun with your loved ones.
