Mighty Fine Unveils New Star Wars Tees — Feel The Fashion Force Flow
Nearly 35 years after the original release of George Lucas’ 1977 classic Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope , science fiction fanatics continue to quote Yoda-isms (“May the force be with you,” “Do or do not…There is no try,” and “Beware of the dark side” instantly come to mind) and to reference such indelible visuals as Carrie Fisher donning her ear-cupping buns Princess Leia Buns, her figure covered by a celestial, flowing white frock (take, for example, Liz Lemon’s penchant for donning a Princess Leia disguise to avoid jury duty on NBC’s 30 Rock). To continue commemorating this groundbreaking film franchise, leading T-shirt brand Mighty Fine has just launched a new design initiative whereby fans of the Millennium Falcon brigade can submit their original Star Wars-inspired artwork for a chance to win cash prizes and have their masterpieces mass produced and sold via WeLoveFine.com.
From May 4th through May 25th, unofficially dubbed Geek Pride Day, space-loving design gurus are invited to submit their designs and vie for a grand prize consisting of up to $2,500, along with judges’ prizes valued at $400 each, and gift certificates worth $150 for selected runner-ups. Once announced by the Mighty Fine team and the yet-to-be-unveiled panel of guest judges, the winning designs will be put into production and added to the ever-expanding Star Wars T-shirt catalog at WeLoveFine.com.
If you’re hardly a designer mastermind but you’re eager to add some Jedi juice to your tee stash, you can also check out the latest additions to the Mighty Fine Star Wars family: the Mighty Fine Leia Rebel tee ($25 at WeLoveFine.com), a striking piece featuring the classic image of a weapon-toting Princess Leia framed in a Western-style Wanted poster, the word “Rebel” printed above her image, and five-point stars floating above the word and decorating the top corners of the yellow- and sepia-tinged “poster” frame; and the Mighty Fine Wookie Cookies ($25 at WeLoveFine.com), an irreverent design featuring hairy Chewbacca clutching a box of “Wookie Cookies,” with a red speech bubble positioned right below his mouth, the words “Extra Chewie!” encapsulated within it, yielding an adorable and chuckle-inducing pun on words.
To infinity and beyond!
