Things are pretty bleak in the world these days and I don’t think these hideously stupid “sexy” Star Wars costumes are helping. Costume Craze just put out a collection of new Star Wars “sexy” costumes for the upcoming Halloween season and from the look of these, the designer that put these together must have just downed a gallon of tequila before going to work. These Star Wars inspired costumes are pretty much a body suit with a skirt and an ugly ass hat. However, the “sexy” Stormtrooper costume isn’t all that bad. Regardless of what I may think of these costumes, I’m pretty sure these are going to hit big in October and we probably will be seeing these costumes roaming around our favorite comic conventions. Each costume will run you about $70 (ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!) and will be available sometime at the end of Summer. I’m pretty sure I will lose faith in humanity around that time as well.

Hit the jump and check out the collection. Sigh…

“To a New Jersey kid and his best friend, the franchise was more than just movies.”

Everyone has a love or hate relationship with Kevin Smith, but we all respect him. After breaking into the movie industry with his cult hit, Clerks, Kevin Smith has been a staple in the geek community has a director, comic/film writer, author, and comedian. I guess the news about Disney acquisition of Lucasfilm and the announcement of Episode VII in 2015 struck him hard as Star Wars as a special place in his heart. One of the characters from the Star Wars universe that is very near and dear to him is Boba Fett. His love for the bounty hunter with a few words has motivated him to put out a passionate plea to Disney to create an Star Wars film centralized around Boba Fett which is featured on Hollywood Reporter. The article talks about Smith and his childhood friend, Pete who like most kids that love Star Wars, created their own stories using action figures in their backyard. Some of the stories that they loved to create was for their favorite character, Boba Fett.

If Disney wants to make another cool billion dollars like it did with The Avengers last summer, all it needs to do is make a Boba Fett time-travel flick. It would center on a character everyone digs and allow for a greatest hits of Star Wars while playing with an already-established timeline, a la Back to the Future. You could use every living (and dead) actor from the previous Star Wars films, no matter what their age — which means Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford can come and play as well. It’d be a dream come true for any Star Wars fan — particularly those of us who opted out of the boring-ass real world every summer for galaxies far, far away.
As Pete and I hit our teens, we didn’t play as much Star Wars anymore. I was onto girls, and Pete was replacing Star Wars with G.I. Joe figures. My visits to Pete’s backyard became less frequent, as did Pete’s summer trips to Jersey with his family: After he got into punk music, he’d spend more and more of his time in Manhattan with new friends.
One morning shortly after Clerks happened to me, I got the absolute shit news that Pete King had been hit by a car in New York City. I asked how long his recovery would be only to learn the awful truth: Pete had died.
Not a summer goes by when I don’t think about Pete or our ongoing saga of Boba Fett lost in time. So when I heard about Disney’s $4 billion Lucasfilm acquisition, naturally I had a brief, one-sided conversation with my former best friend.
“We might finally get to see that Fett flick we always dreamed about, Pete,” I said aloud at my desk after I read the news.

So in a world where Disney needs to make back its investment, we may indeed see an all-Boba Fett film. And if the Force wills it, maybe it’ll even be about Boba Fett lost in the Star Wars universe time stream. But even if it became the highest-grossing film of all time, it’d still never be as good as Pete King’s version.”

Kevin Smith might be on to something here. While most of us have been campaigning for existing storylines in the Star Wars Expanded Universe like Legacy of the Force, not many of us have thought about creating films based on a character’s origins. Boba Fett would be a great example. As a character that existed in most of the Star Wars films, it would be interesting to revisit Boba Fetts point of view during that time and beyond. What did Boba do after the death of Jango Fett and his reappearance as a bounty hunter for the Galactic Empire? What happened to him after falling into the Sarlacc Pit in Return of the Jedi? I already know Boba’s adventures beyond ROTJ, but most people don’t. “Boba Fett Origins” might not work right now in Episode VII, but surly, there is a story there that can be made into a motion picture. I’m pretty sure there are millions of Star Wars fans that agree with Kevin Smith. We need a Boba Fett movie.

The talented folks at Black Milk Clothing is at it again by taking Star Wars and adding a whole lot of sex appeal to it. Black Milk just released their newest Star Wars inspired dresses, leggings, and swimsuits. The classic R2-D2 dress and swimsuit got an upgrade and iconic characters such as Boba Fett and Darth Vader finally got some love from Black Milk. In addition to the merc and the Sith Lord, Black Milk also dazzled up a cool polyester/LYCRA skin tight dress with the almighty Death Star. Hopefully, the Death Star dress doesn’t have any weak point as this might lead to some awkward clothing malfunctions. Considering how cool Black Milk Clothing’s Star Wars line is, I have to say that I have mixed feelings about the Ewok dress. What is it about that Ewok dress that I want to shoot it with a blaster regardless if there is a cute girl wearing it. Oh well.

You can buy Black Milk’s newest releases at blackmilkclothing.com. Hit the jump and check out the new collection!

Even more than the Jedis or the Sith, one of the most beloved characters from ‘Star Wars’ is the relentless bounty hunter, Boba Fett. So when Dark Horse and author Tom Taylor (Star Wars: Invasion, Star Wars: Blood Ties) announced the title of Taylor’s next installment in the “Blood Ties” collection, I lost my shit. Why did I lose my shit you may ask. Well, Tom Taylor’s newest book is titled, “Star Wars: Blood Ties – Boba Fett is Dead”.

“Boba Fett is dead. The most infamous hunter in the galaxy has been hunted. He’s lying, broken, on the desert floor. He’s more blaster-holes than man.  It’s the ultimate ending. However, this is just the start of our story. With the fall of Fett broadcast across the galaxy, someone rises to avenge him. But who would care about the death of a man like Fett? Bounty hunters aren’t exactly known for their enduring, close friendships but even a man like Boba Fett has family… and now a Blood Tie demands blood.”

I always want to believe that nothing can kill Boba Fett, but after checking out the teaser image for “Boba Fett is Dead”, my heart sank. It will be very interesting to see where Taylor takes our favorite bounty hunter. ‘Star Wars: Blood Ties – Boba Fett is Dead’ goes on sale in April 2012.
