Star Wars Event at the Disney Store

I recently went to a Star Wars event for Disney Rewards Visa Cardholders at my local Disney Store.

During this event, I was able to get my picture next to this New Order Stormtrooper from the next Star Wars film, The Force Awakens. 
For more about this recent Star Wars adventure, read my article that I wrote for The Cantina Cast blog!

SWCA Recap: Chris Alexander

During Star Wars Celebration, it was my pleasure to have a brief conversation with origami artist Chris Alexander. Chris is the author of Star Wars Origami, which teaches both Adults and Children how to fold paper using the origami techniques to create 36 different Star Wars characters and vehicles.

 
When I talked to Chris, he impressed me not only my his knowledge and skill with the art of origami, but I was impressed on how personable he was. He is an everyday fanboy who has an interest in many fandoms, especially Star Wars.  Chris is also a supporter of everyday Fangirls, especially his Mom, who attended Star Wars Celebration with him as Salacious Crumb!

During this brief conversation, Chris explained it took him over a decade and a half to convince anyone in Star Wars publishing that a book about the art of Star Wars origami would sell.  However, the effort he made was worth it.  Not only did his book Star Wars Origami sell, it also became a New York Times bestseller. 

Just after the Star Wars Celebration Anaheim debriefing with Skywalking Through Neverland, Chris showed us his latest Star Wars origami piece, Rey and her speeder from The Force Awakens.

Question 24) Favorite Fandom created item that I made

The only fandom related item that I created, so far, is this blog. Therefore, I will need to find something that I can create and update this page with a picture of it! Guess I will be checking out the craft section of StarWars.com or Bonnie Burton’s #StarWars craft book
