Snazzy Death Star dress

"Star Wars" vlogger Jennifer Landa sure knows how to rock the Death Star look with this imaginative cosplay. The top half of the Empire's favorite warship turns into a nifty skirt. Check out the TIE Interceptor bow in her hair. While everyone else is dressing up as Darth Vader or Princess Leia, Landa is dressed as one of the most powerful weapons of destruction ever created in the "Star Wars" universe.

Chow on this Death Star cheese ball

"Star Wars" vlogger Jennifer Landa, she of the fantastic Death Star cosplay, also translated Darth Vader's ride into a cheesy comestible. Her Death Star cheese ball recipe uses cream cheese, bacon bits, cilantro, cheddar cheese, garlic, cumin, cayenne, lime juice, Worcestershire sauce, and a jalapeno. You put it together pretty much like a regular cheese ball, but you then have to shape it into a circle and cut and carve the design into the cheese. It's just the thing to serve for your next "Star Wars" movie marathon.

Death Star becomes home decor

Tom Spina Designs took on a custom home theater project and created Death Star wall tiles to decorate the room. Cast in resin, the design is lifted right from the surface of the Death Star. The pieces aren't sold separately, since they were for a one-off project, but they should inspire you to step up the game for decorating your "Star Wars"-theme home.

Go for a Death Star goal

Nobody kicks Darth Vader around. Unless you happen to have a Death Star soccer ball. This exclusive creation appeared at "Star Wars" Celebration Europe in 2013 and later got a limited product release to a wider audience. It's no longer available, but the sports-geek crossover concept will live on.

Doggie Death Star of shame

A little pup named Musha had to go through a minor surgical procedure. Afterwards, she had to wear a cone of shame. Her owner looked at that cone and decided it needed to be spruced up with a Death Star design. This immediately transformed Musha from a normal pup into Darth Musha, Sith Lord of drool.

Lick a Death Star lollipop

If you had to assign the Death Star a sweet flavor, what would you choose? I would go with licorice, but Etsy seller designerlollipop went with marshmallow for this set of Death Star lollies. The handmade candies are created with sugar, corn syrup, isomalt, and artificial flavoring and coloring. And they look good enough to eat. Each shiny sphere of fear is a tiny Death Star waiting to be licked into oblivion. A good gift choice for your Jedi friends, the lollipops are available on Etsy for $15 for six candies.

Put a Death Star ring on it

Sometimes you want to show your geeky side in a subtle way. This $400 Death Star ring rendered in sterling silver comes from Etsy seller SwankMetalsmithing. The smooth Death Star design built into it doesn't scream "Star Wars," it whispers it. The ring can be customized with your favorite "Star Wars" symbol. The Jedi symbol and Imperial Cog are two of the options.

Make tea the Death Star way

Pretty much anything spherical is bound to be fodder for Death Star treatment at some point. The mundane tea ball turns into something spectacular when it's in the form of a Death Star tea infuser. The $20 globe uses a TIE fighter anchor to keep it from disappearing in your cup. Just be careful not to oversteep...you don't want your beverage turning bitter with Sith rage.
