Ok, raise your hand if you HAVEN’T seen the new Star Wars movie yet.
Whether you’re already repulsed by the other contents of this blog or not, you might want to turn away from some SUPER MAJOR FASHION SPOILERS.
Like a bunch of other folk, I’ve watched The Force Awakens a good number of times. And when you watch something a good number of times, and you draw…you tend to draw a bunch of things from said thing you’ve watched a number of times.
And guess the thing I’ve been drawing a bunch of times for the past few weeks.
Teenage tumblr user + Hot topic + Star Wars = Kylo Ren
This madness has even gone beyond drawing.
I want to be free of this pain of a pin stabbed through my nubby felt limb.
But I have grander plans for Disney’s new Prince(ss). Surely this spoiled, emotional, wannabe Sith has an extensive wardrobe beyond that mask, black frock, and infinity scarf, right?
Oh, Kylo Hime!
After redrawing one of my Ren doodles in Manga Studio, I entertained the idea of paper dolls. And then I started it. It’s still a work in progress as I’m sure this guy’s wardrobe takes up a large warehouse on a star destroyer.
Don’t look if you want to avoid spoilers – next few pics reveal the full wardrobe of Kylo Ren which definitely spoil the ENTIRE plot of the new trilogy.
Dark knights don’t do tighty whities.
Of course you gotta start with the base doll and default outfit. I’ll have to work in the mask, of course.
Knights of Ren don’t do buttons – especially with sleepwear
This is what I’d imagine Emo Kylo Ren would wear to sleep, cuddling a Vader doll and heirloom cape.
“Omg I can’t believe we’re wearing the same thing. How embarrassing” – General Hux
I bet spills and accidents happen – and the closet is on another planet. And the only thing handy is an extra First Order uniform.
In time for the obligatory anime episode.
A Japanese school uniform felt obligatory. And necessary.
If we’re gonna follow Skywalker-Organa family tradition…
“Ben…these are your first steps…”
Surely, this joke has been done over and over again since the movie premiered, right?
I hope to get this done in time for Valentine’s Day – keep an eye out for this space. Even better – come chat with me on Twitter or follow along on Instagram where I update on the progress!
