This week’s Fandom 5 is a catch-up week where you can pick any of the topics you missed out on the first time around. I’m using the “one fandom styled five ways” prompt, and the fandom I’ve picked is the Star Wars fandom. I’ve done some Star Wars everyday cosplay in the past, both on this website and Geek & Sundry, so instead of doing five straight up everyday cosplay looks, I went to give more Star Wars inspired looks. Namely, a Jedi, a Sith, a Matt the Radar Technician/Kylo Ren fan, a Star Wars workout look, and a “wear all your Star Wars gear at once” look. Check it out!
I have this Jedi dress from WeLoveFine, and I absolutely love it. In fact, I’m wearing it AS I TYPE THIS BLOG (#crazy). These cowl dresses are just too cute, and are subtle enough that they don’t scream fandom. Of course, you’ll also need a trusty droid to help you out, so I added a Artoo and BB-8 bag–you can pick your favorite droid.
Of course it can also be fun to channel your inner dark side. WeLoveFine also has a dress for that. I don’t this dress just yet, but I am planning on buying one soon. I’m a sucker for black and red. I also added one of the adorable Darth Vader clutches from Sent From Mars in addition to some other dark side-inspired jewelry to keep everything on the Dark Side.
Matt the Radar Technician Fan
We all remember where we were the first time we saw the Undercover Boss: Starkiller Base sketch on SNL. Because it was likely one of the best things ever, Jordandene came out with a shirt to pay tribute to the amazing moment in pop culture. Because the shirt is so great, Kylo Ren is so unintentionally hilarious sometimes, and Matt the Radar Technician is amazing, I built an entire outfit around Jordan’s tee.
Star Wars Workout Outfit
If you’ve hung around mine ol’ blog long, you know I take ballet several times a week. So when I head to the studio to get my workout on, I rarely head out in sneakers. I tend to wear some variety of Uggs to keep my feet warm because doing pointe work on cold toes is a special kind of hell. But since most of you are normal and choose not to murder your feet, I also included regular tennis shoes in this look. But most importantly, let’s just talk about how obsessed I am with that sports bra. It’s ADORABLE.
All the Star Wars Things
The thing with having a lot of fandom gear is that sometimes you just have to wear it all at once. So I’ve got a Her Universe Storm Trooper skirt, a Jordandene tank, and a Sent From Mars bag. Because sometimes, the only “theme” you need your outfit to have is a mashup of “I LOVE STAR WARS” and “I HAVE SPENT A LOT OF MONEY ON STAR WARS STUFF!”
