Ceremonial Life Day Garb
The essential Wookiee Life Day celebration item. Any sort of blanket with sleeves or robe is acceptable.

For when you barely try.

Party Gear
Perfect for adult and non-adult beverages.
A great option for replicating the ceremonial Wookiee Life Day orb and just cool lighting.
Display your Wookiee Life day pride for the whole neighborhood to seein your front yard, or keep it inside to ensure it stays mint!
Because every Star Wars themed celebration needs to have blue milk.

Wookiee Life Day 2015 Gift Guide - Toys

Wookiee Life Day Gift Guide - Toys

There's not much official merchandise for The Star Wars Holiday Special, so let our shopping guide help you out this holiday season. 

All purchases from Amazon links benefit The Wookiee Fund.

Disney Chewbacca Plush
He needs your love and/or some red fabric to make a Life Day robe for him.
Funko POP! Chewbacca from The Force Awakens
This brand new sculpt is great and could also benefit from some strategically cut fabric to fashion a Life Day robe. 
Hasbro Star Wars Rebels Wullffwarro and Wookiee Warrior
These figures can easily be customized with some small pieces of red felt or other fabric to make Life Day robes, or even painted to make them resemble Mala or Itchy. 
Hasbro Yarua (Coruscant Senate)
This is another Wookiee who is begging for some Life Day customization!

Boba Fett?!
Hasbro 30th Anniversary Collection Animated Debut Boba Fett
This is the first Hasbro figure other than the vintage mail-away Boba Fett to directly reference The Star Wars Holiday Special. 
Medicom Holiday Special Boba Fett Kubrick 
Part of a Kubrick Boba Fett series featuring 6 unique versions of the bounty hunter. 
Funko Holiday Special Boba Fett Bobble-Head
Before Funko ruled the earth with their POP! figures they were making some great bobble-heads, including this Entertainment Earth exclusive. 

Other Appearances 
Hasbro Power of the Jedi Zutton
This is an exact replica of Zutton as seen in the Holiday Special in every detail, down to the cantina glass included with him. The only difference now was the inclusion of two blasters and a leg holster, assumedly for "added play value". Even though once again there was no mention of the Holiday Special on the packaging, there can be no doubt this figure is directly out of the Special... and once again, still images from the Special were printed on the front and back of the package. (via
Hasbro Star Wars Rebels C-3P0 and R2-D2
The animated style of these figures makes them a better representation of their animated Holiday Special appearance than the usual film-accurate versions. 
Hasbro The Black Series #05 Luke Skywalker
Take off Luke's medal and this is just how he looked in the animated segment. 
Hasbro 30th Anniversary Collection Y-Wing Fighter 
This Y-Wing fits Luke and is a great representation of the animated yellow painted ship.
Disney Y-Wing Die Cast Vehicle 
A smaller and more affordable version of the ship from the Holiday Special. 
Disney Infinity 3.0 Han Solo
Not a perfect representation of Han Solo's animated Holiday Special appearance, but it's the closest out there.

Wookiee Life Day 2015 Look Book

Everyone knows the traditional Wookiee Life Day attire is simply a red snuggie, but if you feel like doing something a little more fashionable this year these ideas might help you out! Take pics of your different Wookiee Life Day looks throughout the holiday season and tag them #WookieeLifeDay on social media to share with the galaxy.

     If you don't have enough time to grow out your own leg hair.

     It's like a shorter, cuter version of the Life Day robe. 

3) Urban CoCo Off The Shoulder Top
     Because you're too sassy for sleeves. 

     Wookiees happen to be huge fans of 50's design aesthetic. 

     Also great for sexy Ewok cosplay.

     Officially Licensed and great for men or women.  

     It's like a mini Life Day orb around your neck!

Wookiee Life Day 2013

It's hard to believe it's already that magical time of year again! A huge thanks goes out to Eric who sent in yet another awesome image with the following message:
Next weekend we celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Star Wars Holiday Special. To celebrate the wookiee holiday, I've attached my 5th annual Life Day mash-up. This year I've combined characters from Star Wars and the Holiday Special with the Peanuts gang. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday. Happy Life Day!
