Christmas, but make it Star Wars
Way back in October I received my very own custom hand painted Star Wars inspired jacket by my friend and fellow Star Wars fan, Solanah. But, between all the craziness that is the Halloween and Christmas seasons, I failed to find the time to do a proper reveal of the jacket. However when working on what to wear to Disneyland this Christmas, I realized the main colors of my jacket’s design are Christmas colors, and I put together a Christmas meets Star Wars outfit.
Earlier this year Solanah started taking commissions painting jackets, mostly with a Star Wars theme, and I knew I just had to have one. I debated for a long time on what the design should be… I wanted something unique, kind of obscure, but also somehow related to my favorite characters, Lando Calrissian and Han Solo. Then it hit me…the thing that linked the two together, a game of sabacc where Lando loses the Millennium Falcon to Han. Pulling from the film Solo, I chose the hand that Han wins the Falcon with, script reading “Fair and Square” referring to the lines Han says when he and Lando reconnect in Empire Strikes Back, and Han’s lines at the end of Solo when he wins the Falcon. I also opted to put the sabacc dice on the upper left part of the front of the jacket.
Within the shops of Batuu at Disneyland, Guests can purchase their very own sabacc deck, and it was one of the first purchases we made when Galaxy’s Edge opened. Since our Christmas visits are so low key, we took the deck with us on Christmas to play as we ate breakfast. The game is much like poker, and can be played with or without betting.
Needless to say, I am extremely pleased with Solanah’s creation. Want your very own hand-painted Star Wars inspired jacket? Or perhaps something from another fandom? Check out Solanah’s Instagram to learn more.
I hope that no matter what holiday you celebrate, you have had a lovely and wonderful holiday season, and that tonight you all have a fantastic and safe New Year’s!

This was such an awesome choice for a jacket design! It looks great, as do you, though I’m very jealous of your getting to visit Batuu anytime!
This one was so fun to do ❤️❤️❤️
And I really love that we got to play sabacc while you were wearing it 😆
Love it. The jacket design is low key and so cool. I also love the mix of artisan work, thrifted and home crafted. There’s a philosophy in your material culture
