It’s day 1 after the new Star Wars film “The Force Awakens” officially opens in theaters. As it should be for real fans, we were of course already in the cinema yesterday, we are still totally enthusiastic and talked shop with the Stormtrooper cups we bought yesterday. Maybe there is also some speculation about what will happen in the next sequels.
Another advantage of having already seen the strip is that you know everything and there is no longer any risk of spoilers. So we were able to research in peace and quiet and immediately discovered the work of the artist Anthony Herrera . He developed silhouette snowflakes, but not ordinary ones but with the likenesses of the new Star Wars heroes like Finn, BB-8, Poe Dameron Rey, but also the villains like Stormtrooper or Kylo Ren.
On the one hand, these wonderful works stir up the hype about the star war saga and, on the other hand, they create a little winter and Christmas atmosphere. Given the temperatures that are currently too high for this time of year, we will certainly not need to shovel snow or worry about scratching the car windows in the near future. We don’t find the latter too bad now.
We’re not that kind of handicraft, but if you’ve got the paper cutting fever, you can download and print out the templates on the creator’s website. All that remains for us is to wish: “May the white splendor” be with you!
