Fashion designer Mikaela Holmes spent a good part of 2015 waiting in anticipation for Star Wars: Force Awakens, so instead of wasting her time reading things online, she channeled her energy into a creative project. This light-up Millennium Falcon purse was the result. “To create the illuminated rear hyperdrive module of the Falcon, I added a strip of LEDs with a simple on/off mechanism attached to the snap closure of the bag. I tried to turn as many components of the ship as I could into functional design elements while still keeping the overall form relatively straightforward. It was a really fun project, challenging in all the right ways,” said Holmes. Click here to view the first image in this week’s things that look like other things gallery.
