How To Incorporate Your BB-8 Obsession Into Everyday Life
BB-8, the self-described “cutest droid in the universe” (that’s how he introduces himself to everyone), is the droid we’ve been looking for. No, seriously. We just saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens and now we need ALL of the BB-8 merch.
The adorably spherical droid rolled, ever so clumsily, into our lives in Jakku—and irrevocably changed them forever. Now, we’ll surely go broke trying to get our hands on every bit of BB-8 merchandise available in the galaxy. But! It will be so worth it.
A purse to stash all of your classified information
A hat to keep your
antennas ears warm
Stylish (more like BaeBae-8, amirite?) and warm (fuzzy!), this knit hat serves as a sophisticated accessory that says, “Hey, I’m a COOL mom.” Or, you know, pair it with your favorite Chicago Bears jersey and you’re good to go.
A friend to keep you from falling into a dark chasm of loneliness
People went absolutely insane for this BB-8 Sphero toy the minute it was released. As Vulture’s Kyle Buchanan put it, “The New Star Wars BB-8 Toy Is So Cute, I Nearly Lost My Mind.” Priced at $150, this little guy may not be for everyone, but if you want to pretend you’re Poe Dameron, then you’re going to need your right hand droid.
A cap for those low-key days
Who needs dry shampoo when you have this shiny cap to cover up those tresses? Even R2-D2 would rock this look.
A dress for the casual cosplayer
Be your best BB-8 in this skater style dress. It’s discreet and chic.
Sometimes, business attire can also be space attire
Some days, you wake up and you say to yourself, “I want to look like an off-duty X-Wing pilot.” So you put your BB-8 bomber jacket over your BB-muscle top and you live your damn life. Just think: W.W.P.D.D. (aka What Would Poe Dameron Do?)
A BB-8 for every inch of your desk
If you wanted to, you could have a BB-8 for every day of the week. Just try not to get too overwhelmed by all of the options.
