Intergalactic Ice Patterns (UPDATE)

Star Wars Snowflakes Take Winter Decorations to the Extreme

— December 17, 2011 — Pop Culture
Graphic designer Anthony Herrera wasn’t content with only seeing Darth Vader and Boba Fett as paper snowflakes, so he decided to push things to the limit and fashion his own Sci-Fi series of paper patterns called ‘Star Wars Snowflakes.’

What separates Star Wars Snowflakes from the original creations crafted by the anonymous Internet husband and wife duo is the level of detail present in Herrera’s work. The facial characteristics of C-3PO and Ahsoka Tano are so well represented that they may as well be drawings from any of the Star Wars animated series. Other characters featured in Star Wars Snowflakes include Admiral Ackbar, a Scout Trooper and Yoda.

Herrera allows visitors of his website to download these images as templates in order to make their own festive Star Wars decorations. He recommends using an x-acto knife for the best results.
Trend Themes
1. Star Wars Snowflakes - Innovative paper patterns of Star Wars characters as snowflakes offer unique winter decorations.
2. Detailed Snowflake Designs - Increasing level of detail in paper snowflakes allows for more intricate and accurate representations of characters.
3. DIY Festive Decorations - Providing downloadable templates for making personalized Star Wars snowflake decorations enhances the DIY trend in winter decor.
Industry Implications
1. Graphic Design - The graphic design industry can explore new possibilities of incorporating intricate paper snowflake designs into various projects.
2. Craft and DIY - The craft and DIY industry can capitalize on the popularity of personalized winter decorations by offering materials and tutorials for creating unique snowflakes.
3. Entertainment and Merchandise - The entertainment and merchandise industry can collaborate with artists to create licensed Star Wars snowflake products to cater to fan demand.
