Why I Mourn…

She gave me hope and Rebellions are built on hope… Why I mourn Carrie Fisher: It’s always sad when a celebrity dies, just as it is always sad when someone in our personal life dies. I never hung out with Carrie Fisher. We never talked over coffee or chatted on the phone or anything else I do with my female friends. I never met her in person (though I always kinda sorta hoped I would). So why do I care...

Hello your friendly putmeinstarwars.com webmistress here to bring you some tricks and tips for this cosplay season! 1.) Tubs are your friend.  A simple rubbermaid tub such as this: Is an invaluable tool when it comes to cosplaying. I find that the clear ones work best for me as I can see what cosplay is inside.

What it’s like having a baby named Leia

Ever since I was ten years old I had a secret obsession. I wanted to name my baby Leia. As a young female nerd there were few nerdy women for me to look up to so of course my pick was Princess Leia. I remember in fifth grade wearing my Princess Leia wig to school much to the chagrin of everyone I knew. As the years went by my fervor never wavered. When I turned 18 I began to model...

Thankfully I have an amazing team of...

Vengeance Rising Filming: Days 1 and 2 (Pre-production)

“Know what I need?” “Hrm?” “I need a new video for my website. I should do a Star Wars short to put up there. The timing works out since I have a couple weeks off work.” With that, I decided to google what other things people have done for fan films in order to get some inspiration. What I found instead was… the Starwars.com fan film awards. The contest entry deadline is in two weeks. The time limit on the...
