After too many weeks of cold, wet northern British Columbia west coast weather I was looking at modelling shelf and had the idea that if Luke Skywalker was living on an island in the middle of the ocean on the Jedi planet Arch-to, he had to deal with the same oceanic winter weather as does Skellig Michael in Ireland in the Atlantic Ocean. ( where two Star Wars movies were shot and where September weather actually delayed shooting The Last Jedi). So here is the Hasbro Star Wars Luke dealing with the Arch-to equivalent of December rain, cold and wind.
The #ourgreatindoors concept came about during the Covid-19 pandemic when outdoor photographers were stuck in their homes and recreated images of the outdoors by using anything they could find around the house. I decided to use the same concept using my Star Wars Micromachines figures.
The idea was featured on CBS News Sunday Morning. (video autoplays) based mainly on the work of photographer Erin Sullivan. As CBS’s Conor Knighton, reported: “When COVID-19 hit, all of travel photographer Erin Sullivan’s far-flung gigs dried up. So, the woman known as “Erin Outdoors” began recreating the great outdoors indoors, turning her Los Angeles apartment into imaginative landscapes made out of spaghetti, vegetables, sugar or tinfoil. Her Instagram photo series, #OurGreatIndoors, has inspired other homebound travel buffs to imagine vistas of their own in miniature.”
