Where were you when you first saw Star Wars? I was a little girl, soon after the release of Return of the Jedi in 1983. It was this first viewing, when I was young and impressionable, where the entire world of sci-fi films opened up to me, and I began to develop a lifelong love of all things Star Wars!
There are plenty of other Wrapunzelistas who feel the same and with the recent release of The Force Awakens, we’ve seen an influx of Star Wars-inspired tichels that are mind blowingly cool!
Adina, Miri, Kathleen and Carie, sporting Princess Leia’s most iconic look!
The creativity we see in tichel-tying is seemingly endless and many wrappers love to use this medium for expressing both their passions and hobbies. Star Wars, as illustrated here, is no exception!
“Help me, Obi–Wan Kenobi, you‘re my only hope!”
I mean, seriously, how cool is this look that Jessica came up with?!
Naomi, a fangroup member, truly went above and beyond, experimenting with various techniques, before developing her own version of Princess Leia-like Cloud City braids. This one is just begging for a tutorial, am I right?!
But that’s not all- Another member, Robin, expertly crafted our favorite princess’ braids from the final scene in A New Hope:
A beautiful princess. Absolutely incredible!
Not all Star Wars wraps have been influenced by the film’s beloved female lead. Many women have gotten their inspiration from other characters, such as Chewbacca, Darth Vader and R2D2!
Yasmine, Sam, Jana, Lila and another one of Sam’s, all looking excellent!
What fun! While these wraps might not be everyday wear for most, they certainly are fun for a night out or even Purim!
Happy wrapping and remember… “the Force will be with you, always!”
