With Star Wars: The Force Awakens opening this month, you'd be forgiven for forgetting that Christmas is just seven days after opening day. Once the movie has opened, you'll want to keep the Star Wars excitement going and combine it with holiday spirit. A Star Wars themed ugly Christmas Sweater can do just that. The tradition of ugly Christmas sweaters has been stood the test of time and has been seeing a resurgence thanks to Holiday nostalgia in recent years. The good folks at UglyChristmasSweater.com have a wide selection of Star Wars sweaters and I've highlighted a couple of my favorites below,
Santa Hat Darth Vader Sweater
What's more festive than a Dark lord of the Sith? Well, maybe not, but put a Santa hat on him and at the very least it's a great conversation starter! The sweater is funny and iconic (you don't get more iconic than Darth Vader) so everyone will be in on the joke. The more hard core fans will notice that the traditional snowflake pattern is replaced with TIE fighters and AT-ATs. The sweater is unisex and made from 100% Acrylic fiber, so it is very comfortable. It's also lightweight enough you won't find yourself sweating at parties (or in the theater for you 5th screening of The Force Awakens). This sweater is simple and fun, perfect for Sith-mas! The Santa Hat Darth Vader Sweater is available for $49.95 US. You can order yours here.
Star Wars Boba Fett Ugly Green Sweater
With the iconic helmet of Boba Fett front and center, with the iconic Mythosaur skulls on the upper arm and Boba's Mandalorian insignia on the forearm this one's for all the Fandalorians out there! It also depicts planets and battlestations in the form of 8-bit graphics. Whether or not Boba survived the Sarlacc Pit is still to be determined, but with whispers of a Boba Fett film coming out in a few years this sweater could serve as excellent premiere attire. The sweater is available in both men's and women's sizes and, like the Darth Vader sweater, it's made from 100% Acrylic fiber, so it's very comfortable. Intricately designed, with lots of cool details for fans this sweater is ideal for Holiday parties and Star Wars events alike! The Boba Fett Ugly Green Sweater is available for $59.99 US. You can order yours here.
If Darth Vader and Boba Fett aren't your speed, UglyChristmasSweater.com have a wide selection of other Star Wars characters including Yoda, Chewbacca and R2-D2. Let us know in the comments which one is your favorite!
