Star Wars: The Ballet

So this happened.

A couple weeks ago, in the middle of my daughter’s bedtime routine, my husband began fiddling around with my daughter’s Stormtrooper figurine, posing it like a ballerina.

It turns out that The Forces Awakens Black series’ joint articulation is pretty decent, and despite my daughter’s need to go to bed, I was quickly sucked into posing the Stormtrooper properly. One thing led to another, and I added Chewbacca to the choreography:

 

The Nerfherding jeté. All too easy.

And then it just kept going from there, and now I have a bunch of photos documenting to majestic performance. My friend Matt graciously agreed to Photoshop the blankets and human fingers out for me so they can be fully appreciated on a blank canvas.

Now witness the power and grace of these fully operational Imperial Ballet danseurs:

Note the graceful flow of the Wookie’s fur.

The first tender touch.

A little jazz thrown in there for variety.

And then the pas de deux begins in earnest

Such grace. Such emotion.

 

The classic Cloud City shoulder sit.

They really nailed the ending.

I welcome​ any titles for these photos that anyone would like to offer up, and if anyone feels the urge to Photoshop them further you have my blessing, but please be sure to link back to me and credit me as creator, choreographer, creative visionary, voice of a generation, and so on and so forth. 

I’m already looking forward to the next photoshoot.
