Risqué Star Wars pin-up girls by Andrew Tarusov

Classic pin-up’s in a Star Wars style by the artist and illustrator Andrew Tarusov. I’ve seen a live action re-creation of the ‘Rey’ image causing a bit of a stir on Facebook recently and thought everyone might enjoy, or be slightly offended by, a bit of risqué sauce. Either way here’s Darth Vader, Stormtrooper, Boba Fett, Yoda, Padmé Amidala, Darth Maul and Rey in various states of undress. These are the censored versions, you can buy NSFW content via Andrew Tarusov‘s website.  Shocking 😉

Check out Andrew Tarusov’s Game of Thrones pin-up girls via Killer Kitsch.

Pimp My Star Wars Ride

Jaw-dropping Star Wars car, a one off custom paint job by Sam Hubbard of Airbrush Perfections. Filled with images from all eras of Star Wars, the Dark Side is well represented here with Darth Vader, Darth Maul, Kylo Ren and the forces of The Empire all beautifully re-created.

MyStarWarsCar” is available for conventions and charity functions in the UK, the owner had this to say – “I’m a lifelong Star Wars fan and car enthusiast, so I decided to do something a little different to my car. With the help of Sam Hubbard, an airbrushing specialist, I have had Sam airbrush the car with images of infamous characters from the [Star Wars] films. “

“My aim is to use MyStarWarsCar for good causes, whether it be attending events for charity or visiting hospital/hospices just to put a smile on peoples faces. The intention is to do as much ‘good’ as is reasonably possible.”

Lifelike sculpts and movie props by Godaiking Studios

These lifelike sculptures by artist and painter Godaiking are something else, the attention to detail is mind blowing. From Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator to Bruce Lee and Michael Jackson the skin, hair, blemishes and wrinkles make these very familiar faces look almost real. Even the Star Wars replicas are of such a high standard it’s difficult telling them apart from the real thing.

Blackpool Comic-Con Launch Party at the Beach House Bistro & Bar

Blackpool Comic-Con Launch Party - Star Wars Stormtroopers by Blackpool Tower

A glorious night was had by all at the official launch party for the Blackpool Comic-Con held at the Beach House Bistro & Bar on Blackpool promenade. The 99th Garrison was out in full ‘Force’ with Darth Vader leading a crack squadron of Storm Troopers, Boba Fett was hunting for a bounty (bar), Jawa’s searching for droids and Indiana Jones was on the look-out for the Lost Ark (last seen at Blackpool Pleasure Beach). Spider-Man turned up traditionally late (he had been out swinging) and headed straight for the pizza, he’s a New York(er) kind of guy.

Live music from the MonaLisa Twins and very tasty food followed a champagne reception along a Sci-Fi studded catwalk. The Mayor of Blackpool, Councillor Val Haynes, was in full swing and mingled with the oddball cast of characters, event organisers Paddy O’Hare and Luke Williams, local press and a few surprise guests including actor and stuntman Spencer Wilding (Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones) and Little Mark from Pawn Stars UK.

The weather was glorious and did Blackpool proud, the sunset looked spectacular. A party of ladies had pre-booked a huge table for the evening not knowing what was about to happen, not too sure what they made of tonight’s proceedings but the rest of the night went off with a bang. Bumped into Geek Pride who, after a few pints, would appear to have some impressive looking equipment. Can’t wait for the full event coming up this September 12th at the Blackpool Winter Gardens.

You can find Blackpool Comic-Con via their Website, Facebook and Twitter. The amazing guest line-up so far includes Julian Glover, James Cosmo, Jake Lloyd, Derek Lyons, Alan Ruscoe, Shane Rimmer, Verne Troyer, Nancy Allen, Al Snow, cosplay artists, movie cars and Titan The Robot.
