Be true to yourself. That’s what I learned from this lady unboxing a Chewbacca mask.
Joy. A simple feeling that most people spend their lives chasing. It’s different for everyone and often manifests itself in ways we would have never expected. A rogue bunny in a playground. A fall breeze. Watching some skateboard dude fall in a hilarious Vine.
Joy comes to us when we least expect it and leaves when we most need it. Maybe that’s the point of joy? To help us appreciate the good times and reflect on the bad. To give us an emotional barometer that helps us become rounded individuals.
Anyway, this lady bought a Chewbacca mask, and it made her happy as f*ck.
Her name is Candace Payne, and I’ve never wanted to be anyone more in my entire life. That moment in front of the camera shows her experiencing joy that wasprobably only matched by people who were there when America found out we won World War II.
oh my god that video of the woman laughing hysterically in a chewbacca mask has made my week

Go out and find your own personal metaphorical Chewbacca mask. Unless for you, that is an actual Chewbacca mask, in which case you can probably just go to Target and buy one.

Nerds remember too well in the 1990′s when George Lucas re-released the original Star Wars trilogy. Fans were ecstatic that their childhood favorite films were back in theaters. And with better sounds and special effects! But many viewers felt let down by George’s unnatural CGI addition to the original films.
Now that the new Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens trailer is all the rave online, Tim Tim Fed was inspired to remake the trailer as George Lucas might have–with obnoxious CGI additions and effects. Nerds are loving this hilarious parody that has instantly gone viral with over 2 million hits this weekend!

Darth Vader’s suit could cost you an arm and a leg (or should that be two legs?). If youve ever wondered how much it would cost to get your supervillain career of the ground, Shade Station have worked out how much it would actually cost to create a Darth Vader suit.
The top expense would the base suit at around $12 million. A chunk of that money would go into making the suit airtight and pressurized in ordertowithstand the extreme conditions of space.Therefore, only a NASA-grade space suit would fit the bill. Hopefully, they make them in black.
Next would be his prosthetic limbs. Obi-Wan Kenobi slices off one of Vaders arms and two of his legs during a lightsaber battle in “Revenge of the Sith.” A top-of-the-range robotic arm would cost you around $40,000 and the two legs would set you back $70,000 each. Not only that, but there would be $5.4 million worth of bills, maintenance and upgrades on the prosthetics throughout their lifetime.
Another sizable chunk of change would be the iconic helmet, complete with augmented reality. If youre going to be crushing the Rebel scum, youre going to need an advanced helmet with a mounted display that hastargeting information and night vision,similar to a U.S. Air Force F-35fighter jet pilot. That wouldbe another $600,000.
Of course, you wouldnt be Darth Vader without the voice and heavy breathing. The heart and lung machine built into his suit is expected to cost at least $45,000, and the high-end permanent voice synthesizer would be around $1,000.
All in all, youre looking at an overall price tag of $18.3 million. That includes $5 for the cape, too.Its a pricey business being a Sith lord; you’d better get saving.
