Star Wars Day – May the 4th – might be the one of the most important dates in a geek’s calendar, but it joins the many events that have been cancelled around the world due to COVID-19. But it’s not the end of the galaxy – families can now celebrate Star Wars Day in the comfort of their own home!
The awesome folk at FightSaber Singapore have organised 2 contests to help Star Wars Day rise once again. Families can have fun with the two challenges , and the best entries will win prizes courtesy of Reed and Singapore Comic Con. One contest is aimed squarely at children – just in time for the school holidays!
The first, a dress up competition, is for children under 16 (but parents can join them), while the second, a video contest, is open to everyone. Submissions for both close on May 9, so that’s a few days for you to brainstorm at home. The 3 most creative entries for each competition will win Star Wars Tsum Tsum totebags.
For the first, parents will have to dress up their little ones, but good news is you don’t have to spend on your costumes. Just use household items and recycled materials, take a photo, and post it with a caption in the comments for the post above.
And if you’re thinking it – you can’t use purchased and official costumes. Those don’t work here!
The second contest doesn’t even require costumes (though you can include them if you wish). Just re-enact a scene of 10 to 30 seconds from any of the Star Wars films (no TV shows?), and also post it in the comments, along with a short description of the scene you’re performing.
There’s no costuming limitations for this one – you can use your official costumes, or just wear whatever you want! There’s also no age restrictions for this contest.
Only Singapore residents may take part in either contest. Winners will be contacted after the submission window, and prizes will be mailed after the circuit breaker period ends, which is hopefully by June 1.
Not sure? Just follow the instructions in the 2 Facebook posts above, and don’t forget to check them from time to time to see what others have uploaded.
May the Force be with you!
