Star Wars Weekends, select weekend events in May and June at Disney’s Hollywood Studios celebrating the best series in the galaxy, are underway. I’ll be traveling at lightspeed next weekend to catch the last weekend of SWW2015. This will be my fourth Star Wars Weekend. To catch you up if you’ve never been, Star Wars Weekends feature meet and greets with the Star Wars characters (the only time of the year you can see them… for now), special events with actors from the Star Wars universe (like a martial arts demo with Ray Parks aka Darth Maul), special Star Wars merchandise and snacks, Star Wars fireworks, and more. It’s not a trap!
At SWW2014, I discovered Her Universe, a clothing brand developed by actress Ashley Eckstein, the voice of Ahsoka Tano in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and new series Star Wars Rebels. Her Universe offers clothing to celebrate geekdom in a cute and fashionable way. You can purchase Her Universe merchandise on their website, ThinkGeek, Hot Topic, and at Star Wars Weekends (hello Darth’s Mall).
But, I am faced with a dilemma. Since I have acquired four Her Universe dresses in the past year, I don’t know what I will wear to SWW2015. My options with outfit details are below. Help me, blog readers. You’re my only hope.
Dress: Her Universe’s Bad Guys Heart Dress, $45
Ears: Disney Store, $21.95
Shoes: Target (similar), $12
Dress: Her Universe Darth Vader Japanese Dress, $60
Flower Crown: My piece is from a local craft fair. H&M (similar), $12.95
Shoes: Toms (My metallics are pink, but that color is no longer available for adults), $54
Headband: World Market, $9.99
Shoes: Sam Edelman, $53.99 on Ebay
Dress: Her Universe Darth Vader Knit Pattern Dress, $40
Ears: Disney Store, $13.95
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell (Similar), $101
Obviously, I’m at a loss.
