STAR WARPS

Greetings Spy Vibers! The lair has been a bit quieter than usual this month, as I continue to recover from a back injury. A second wave of physical therapy and acupuncture seems to be doing the trick and I can't wait to get back to my routine of daily exercise and Spy Vibe posts. I guess December has been a bit like Shrublands health clinic (Thunderball, Never Say Never Again), but without the Bollinger, Caviar, Foie gras, and private massages. Still, chin up! The largest blip on my radar has been the new Star Wars movie. I was a kid when the original trilogy came out, so I'm really enjoying the return (mostly) to the universe I fell in love with as a boy. No spoilers here, but I will say I was pleasantly surprised how well the young actors carried the film with passion (I would have liked to have seen more energy from the old timers). That said, the movie was completely enjoyable and got us SW fans back on track. My attention has been on 1970s/1980s space opera, so space fashion and costume design have naturally drifted back into my imagination- hence the reference to warps and wefts in the title. I can't promise Bothan Spies, but we can have a fun week looking at adventure and intrigue out among the stars. Today we spotlight some vintage costume tests, fashion & promo images. Enjoy!
