Our friends over at HalloweenCostumes.com came up with this really cool infographic showing the costume progressions of three main characters in the Star Wars prequel trilogy
Since our first edition of Far Far Away Fashion was so well received, the wait for a follow up might have been less than enjoyable (but still better than waiting for The Force Awakens to come out). Well, the wait is over (one of the waits, anyway…) and we’re happy to present to you this Republic Edition costume guide! Straight from George Lucas’s Star Wars prequels, we have broken down some of your favorite characters’ main costumes.
There was a serious debate over which of Padme’s 12 gazillion costume changes to include, but we tried to pick out the most memorable fashion moments. With Anakin and Obi-Wan included for good measure, we have the looks of your three favorite heroes of the Republic. Well…heroes per se. That whole Darth Vader thing with Anakin is still a bit hard to swallow. (How did the little Ani who won our hearts with his Podracing exploits turn out to be the worst villain of all time??) You can use this infographic to check out his transformation, and it’s a great way to study up on the rest of your favorite prequel looks, too!
Toronto based graphic designer Johnee Pixels has found a great use for his Starbucks drink sleeves. Rather than tossing them out like we all do, he transforms the Siren into Disney characters
Comic book movies haven’t always been as consistently great as they have been in the age of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and post-Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy – they used to be pretty consistently awful. Unfortunately, most actors and directors of these movies were reticent to actually say how bad these movies were, due to not wanting to attract more bad PR to themselves and not wanting to insult the work of others who put in time on these films.
Luckily, every now and then, people HAVE come out and said that their movies were trash (with varying degrees of diplomatic language employed). Here’s 13 people who said what we knew they were thinking:

Congratulations to Tom from Waukesha, WI for winning the July edition of the Show Us Your Beaver contest!
Tom took a moment to snap this selfie at Heathrow airport on his way back to the states. We’re sorry he had to fly United, but hopefully the $50 prize will make him feel better.
Congrats Tom, and for the rest of you, don’t forget to Show Us Your Beaver!
Russian urban explorer and photographer Ralph Mirebs somehow managed to gain access to the world’s first operational space launch facility: the Baikonur Cosmodrome located in the desert of Kazakhstan. The former Soviet Space Shuttle Program was shut down due to lack of funding shortly after the callapse of the Soviet Union. Since then, the huge abandoned hangar which houses the degenerating remains of two prototypes used by the defunct space program has been left to deteriorate in isolation. The two shuttles are from the Buran space program which ran from 1974 to 1993 and only saw two orbital flights. These pictures of their remains are eerily breathtaking
