Star Wars: The Force Awakens will soon be at a theater near you (ahem, tonight!), and in line to see the movie will be loads of devoted fans decked out in outrageous costumes of their favorite characters. (And there’ll be me, dutifully going to see the film on opening night with tickets that were purchased in the wee hours of the morning many weeks ago by a certain Star Wars fan in my life.)
In honor of this momentous event—and whether or not you are a fan, personally, I know you know someone who is—I thought what more appropriate time to reveal our Star Wars shopping guide?
