Unleash your (creative) force in time to decorate an awesome tree for Intergalactic Star Wars Day
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away….
Amazing fans of the highly successful Star Wars franchise wanted to find a different way to celebrate the awesomeness of Star Wars. Only one dared to answer their call to awaken the force within… the Treetopia Intergalactic Black Tree. Now Padawan, the Treetopia Academy will show you how to decorate using the force so your name will resonate throughout the galaxy.
Choose a Place
Since there are many planets in the franchise, you can choose a planet or any place and use images or the likeness of its inhabitants as your tree décor. Imagine your intergalactic tree as the moon of Endor and strategically place Ewoks all around it. You can also go for Tattooine and hang the Hutts or Jawas however way you want. You can even just have models of the different planets and ships in the franchise.
Choose a “Specie”
Humans (or clones), artificial intelligence or aliens. There are a great number of alien species that you can decorate your tree with: beasts of burden like Dewbacks and Tauntauns, monster beasts like Rancors and Sarlaccs, or humanoids like the Ugnaughts. Perhaps you prefer different droid models in your tree? R2D2, C-3PO or assassin droids can cling onto your tree. You can also decorate your tree with clones to have some sort of uniformity.
Choose a Career
Go into politics by putting up leaders of different planets: senators on one side, other planet leaders on another. You can also divide the tree into three sections with Padawans on one side, master Jedis on another, and the villains they fought on the last. This would be more challenging, leading us to…
Choose an Episode
If you have a favorite episode in the entire franchise, you can just use characters that showed up in that specific episode. This way, you have a specific theme for your ornaments and you don’t have to mix the characters together so much (e.g., don’t put an adult Luke Skywalker with Queen Amidala or a young Anakin Skywalker with an adult Princess Leia).
Choose a Side
Last for this list but definitely not the least, is to choose how you will use the force. Are you a good guy, a hero who would fight against the forces of evil or will you choose to be like Anakin and join the Dark Side? With this theme alone, you can mix and match your characters regardless of the episode they were introduced.
Don’t forget a special item to put on top of the tree in place of the usual star or angel. Since you are already using the force, display your weapon on top. Use a lightsaber color that best represents your décor. Did you join the dark side? Use Darth Vader’s red lightsaber. Are you still a Padawan? Luke Skywalker’s blue lightsaber is a good choice. Master Jedi will you be? Yoda’s green lightsaber is a definite must!
Forget not May 4, young Padawan.
May the force be with you.
