Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes out this December, and to say there isn’t a certain amount of hype and excitement in the air, would be selling Star Wars and its fans short. The Inquisitr reported on the 3D printed Stormtrooper replicas of attendees at Disney, the company currently tasked with producing the next Star Wars trilogy.
If Star Wars fans were emphatic about that, and like or love Domino’s Pizza, they might be even more excited about this one fans geektastic costume. According to Comicbook, Phillip Figueroa cared about recycling, Star Wars, and Domino’s Pizza. Apparently, there was a recycled objects fashion show where Figueroa used his love for Star Wars and Domino’s to construct a Stormtrooper costume…completely out of Domino’s Pizza boxes.
Domino’s spokesperson Amanda Platt eventually caught wind of Figeuroa’s creative Stormtrooper costume on Instagram, and the force was with him because Domino’s wanted to display his creative geekery.
“When I saw the artwork on Instagram, I knew we had to have it. It’s not everyday you see our brand combined with one of Hollywood’s most iconic series. We’re very excited to display this expression of Domino’s fandom at our headquarters.”
Figeuroa, of Domino’s Pizza and Star Wars fandom, was naturally honored by their appreciation for his fandom and craft.
“I’m still in awe and thankful that my artwork will be on display at Domino’s world headquarters. I’m glad I was able to use these two major franchises to bring awareness to the recycling cause.”
PRNewswire reported on their local Star Wars geek, and his Stormtrooper costume made from Domino’s boxes. They say the Star Wars Stormtrooper costume will be displayed at Domino’s World Resource Center in Ann Arbor, Michign.
Star Wars, and not just its Stormtroopers and Domino’s Pizza box designs, have a very dedicated fan costume creation base. In fact, there is a whole Facebook page dedicated to sharing such Star Wars fan made costumes called simply Star Wars Costumes.
There did not appear to be any Stormtrooper costumes in the immediate viewing range. There is also Star Wars props and Star Wars weapons dedicated fan pages as well. With wickedly weapons like the lightsaber, it is not hard to see why.
One wonders if he went for a Pizza Hut theme, whether or not Mel Brooks and Pizza Hut would have looked him up. Granted, that would like a love for a different pizza franchise, and the Star Wars spoof film Spaceballs.
