“There’s been an awakening. Have you felt it?”
Anyone with a pulse has felt it. If you are pulse deficient, I really can’t help ya. But for the rest of us, in one month we will be watching Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Sure I’ll be at the Regal theater at the Oviedo Mall in Florida. And you’ll be in your respective theater…laughing, crying, cheering.
But the Force is strong with the Star Wars community…the Star Wars fanbase…the Star Wars family. So I believe, in some existential way, we will all be seeing it together. Lord knows we’ll sure be talking about it together on social media the minute the credits are done. (Cause if you don’t stay for the credits…then it’s almost like I never knew you at all.)

Here is the newest poster to drop today. With the new and final trailer dropping tomorrow night during Monday night football (clearly Disney’s effort to get more nerds to watch sports…all over that!)

First thoughts…
-WHERE’S LUKE?? Someone put out an APB for Luke!!!
-Leia’s hair! 😍
-New Death Star looking weapon!!
-Kylo, Rey, Finn, Poe!!!!! The gang’s all there.

No doubt we will all have many more feelings to share after tomorrow night!
It is really good to be a nerd right now!! Who’s with me?

30 Days of Nerdy Hair – Day 16

Day 16: Padme Amidala from Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

I was going to save this one for Thursday, the 18th, which will mark that we only have 6 months till Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens opens in theaters. But today I woke up with great Padme hair texture, so I had to bump it up a couple days. Padme Amidala starts off in Episode 1 as the queen of Naboo. Her hair is very strategic and massive. It’s part of her costume and her persona as queen. It’s meant to intimidate. By Episode III she has softened her hairstyles, rocking curls and waves. The hair becomes far less intimidating and much more feminine. Representing a change, not only in her political status (she is no longer queen of Naboo in Ep. III) but also in her personal life. She is married and pregnant, about to give birth to her and Anakin’s child. This is a much different Padme and her hair is a reflection of that. Hair can tell you a lot of things about a person!!

I used a clip in place of her headpiece and just let the curls cascade down. I also added a coral lip gloss like she’s wearing in the above picture. Now all I need is a flowy, Naboo nightgown and a very angry, confused Jedi husband and my journey to Padme cosplay will be complete.

 Is anyone else so freaking ready for The Force Awakens??? Is it December yet???
