I'm working on a sort of Hipster Han Solo costume and I'm finding that, since the Star Wars costumes were designed in the '70s, Han really already has it down, except for the boots being a little too high. Other than that, he's there. So it's tough to make it obvious that it's a hipster version and not just a poorly done costume made of bits and pieces I've found lying around.

My trouble is finding the details that make Solo iconic, his gun, his vest, the boots, and apply a hipster filter (there's an overused name for that I think...oh right! Instagram) to those pieces to bring them into today. If I can swing it, I'd also like an old, gray road bike that I can apply a "Millennium Falcon" decal to, since no hipster would be caught using any transportation but a bike, right? I'm thinking an ironic shirt would be nice too. "I shot WAY before Greedo" or "Millennium Falcon? You've probably never heard of it" are two obvious choices.

I'm trying to get the stereotypical hipster fashion down, too. Vintage and close fitting or baggy, no in-between. Han's not frumpy, so I think the close fitting would be best. Skinny jeans. Old combat boots, loosely tied. Deep V-neck. I've got a black vest that'll do perfectly. I want brilliant red socks as an homage to Han's Correllian blood stripe on his trousers, and I think that kind of loud footwear works with the hipster image. But I don't know what to do about the gun (I have a Nerf gun I'm considering painting, but would a hipster condone shooting? Maybe an iPhone case or something for a can of Pabst...) and I don't know if I should include a knit hat or not.

Yeah, I have some old worn out Chucks that I thought would be fun to try to make some TOMS out of.

I'm finding my original idea may be more difficult than I had ever thought. Would you believe it if I told you there's more material in a TOMS shoe than a Chuck of the same size?

I've spoken with a friendly ebay representative on the phone. Everyone who's had their art stolen needs to email vero@ebay.com to report their case and have their art removed. The more flags they receive on this one ebay guy, his time on ebay will be short!

Yep, I reported the thief from ebay because not only is he selling one of my works - he has about 100 others from my friends and promo material from copyrighted movies and games. So thanks jaxon-riddle for keeping an eye out!
