(EU) Vader Mask

(this is a SWR "Expanded Universe" remix)


We're thrilled to announce Freehand Profit's latest remix, featuring a pair of Adidas "Darth Vader" Superstar IIs! This is the 12th mask in The Branding Wars series, most of which are gas masks reconstructed from a single pair of sneakers.

This remix was made especially for Star Wars Remix, and, once again, you can own this exclusive item!

For more information, please check out this post at The Hip Hop Nerd.

That's No Moon!

Nathan Barry submitted a tasty remix of the Death Star floating in a sea of stars (the starfield was created by punching holes in black paper and lighting it from behind). Any guesses as to what this "moon" is made of (there are two clues in the previous sentence, by the way)?

A Tremor in the Force

The SWR team has been nothing short of amazed at the coverage, support, and enthusiasm for our little project. Thanks to the amazing creativity of the Star Wars community, the impressive remixes we've published here have garnered mentions at sites like Boing Boing, Wired's GeekDad, Bit Rebels, NOTCOTG4TV, DudeCraftMTV, even Playboy.

The most recent mention, however, truly humbled us.

Yesterday, the talented Bonnie "Grrl" Burton (no stranger to crafting or Star Wars) mentioned two of our remixes at The Official Star Wars Blog: Charlton Yu's "Jawa Burgers" and "Chewburger."

We're still geeking out about it, as you might guess.

So thank you, Bonnie, and thanks to everyone else who linked, posted, tweeted, commented about Star Wars Remix - and most of all for sharing your remixes!

Hollywood (Death) Star

Rebecca Bloom really remixed the Walk of Fame in our latest remix, "Hollywood (Death) Star." We have no idea whose star is under the cardboard, and Rebecca isn't talking - though, to be honest, we kind of like the air of mystique!

Death Star Ice Cream

Paige Smith served up a cool remix for today, along with the story behind it:





"Death Star Ice Cream"

"I was eating some ice cream one day during the summer when I was feeling particularly bad after having completely bombed a Calculus 2 test. I tend to eat from around the sides first and and then start on the middle. I happened to look down and saw a half-sphere with an indention in the the top.. I added a few lines and this was the result. It made the rest of my day."

Getting this remix sure made our day - thanks, Paige!
