Your Mission: Assemble a Star Wars Costume & Win Prizes!

In honor of Star Wars Day, we invite you to use the next few days to assemble a Star Wars-themed costume and share a photo with us via the comments below.

  • The picture can be from previous years!
  • You must be willing to have us share your costume on social media so the world can celebrate with us! Leave your Twitter and Instagram handles in your comment if you'd like to be tagged.
  • Photos must be posted in this thread between now and Wednesday, May 4th @ 11:59 PM UTC.


All participants who leave a comment in this thread will win a special Star Wars-themed DEV profile badge. We'll also randomly select a lucky person to win this awesome sweatshirt on the Forem Shop:

Here's my wife and I as Han Solo and Princess Leia.

I wish I had a fuller picture, but apparently this was the only one we took this past year haha! If I can dig up some others, I'll come back.

May the force be with you all!

Very nice! ๐Ÿ™Œ

Checked out your blog post too. Love how you spun off the quote "Only a Sith deals in absolutes" and related it to the way in which companies will treat accessibility.

In the words of Obi-Wan Kenobi, โ€œOnly a Sith deals in absolutesโ€. The same goes with development teams and accessibility. There is no absolute solution that will add accessibility into the development process in one sprint. There is not one single line of code that will fix all your accessibility issues. However, you can add accessibility as part of the development process in small increments, which will eventually create a well-oiled and agile accessibility process within your development team!

Very nicely said. I recommend to anybody who catches this comment that they check out the full post!

Now, to get together my Han Solo outfit... ๐Ÿค“

Also alternatively, when I was 17 I printed an image of Darth Vader fighting a unicorn onto a white sweatshirt for giggles, though a bit worn down over the years haha still one of my favorite original apparels! :-)
