Top 5 Star Wars Camping Accesories for Summer Holidays

Summer is almost upon us and the good weather has already started. Have you booked your holiday for this year yet? Are you just thinking about where you might be going? Well if you are thinking of a camping holiday this and you are a big Star Wars fan you will want to read this blog. We have pulled together our top 5 list of the ultimate Star Wars camping accessories that you will need to take with you. So all you need to worry about is remembering the tent pegs!

 

First up we have the Star Wars onesie, you are going to need some sort of adult PJ's and a onesie is ideal for those cold summer nights especially when you need to nip out to the shower blocks. Heck you can even sit around the fire while toasting marshmallows while putting the world to rights. There are also loads of different characters to choose from, so whether you are Boba Fett fan or you prefer R2-D2 we have the onesies you are looking for.

 

Boba Fett Onesie

 

Our second must have camping holiday accessory is the Darth Vader Lightsaber BBQ tongs, the BBQ is an essential part of a summer camping holiday. You will get your money worth from these lightsaber tongs, as long as the weather keeps up for you. Whether you are a meat lover or a vegetarian you can turn over your steak, burgers, sausages or vegetable kebabs in style and be the envy of every camper in sight. The tongs even have the lightsaber sound FX!!

Next up we have the Stormtrooper mood light, its not easy to see where you are going or who you are standing on when on a camping holiday. So you will need some sort of light, if you don't have a pitch with electric you are going to need something battery operated, this is where our Star Wars mood lights can help. Our Stormtrooper mood light is bright enough to light your way but isn't going to wake everyone up when you switch it on.

You finally arrive at the campsite, you are on holiday, but there is still the task of putting up the tent. Make sure the first thing you find is your Star Wars Boba Fett bottle opener, you are going to need a drink while taking on the task or erecting your tent. Make sure this is the last thing you pack so it's the first thing you find when you arrive. When the sun is out there is nothing better than a nice cold one.

Finally you are going to need a torch for those late night toilet visits, we have the perfect accessory. Our Star Wars lightsaber torch is created in the style of Anakin Skywalker’s hilt, when the button is pressed a blue light is produced. So you can now avoid pot holes and humps in the ground.

How to Make Snack Sized Pumpkin Pasties from the Harry Potter Movies

 

Pumpkin Pastie Recipe

 



This October there will be an abundance of pumpkins in every supermarket and at vegetable market stalls, it’s the perfect excuse to make your very own Pumpkin Pasties. So don’t despair, if your pumpkin carving doesn’t turn out as you had hoped, use the recipe below to save the day. Why not theme your Halloween party around a Harry Potter and pretend you are on the Hogwarts express serving up this Honeyduke’s special.

 

Ingredients needed to make around 15 small pasties

 

1 tbsp. olive oil
1 large onion
500g of pumpkin
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ginger
3 tsp. tomato puree
100ml vegetable stock
500g ready-rolled puff pastry
75g grated cheddar
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 tsp. allspice

 

Preparing your Pumpkin

 

First you need to pick the best pumpkin, go into your local supermarket and test the firmness of the pumpkins. You want to choose one that is still firm and has no bruising. If you are using a pumpkin that you have attempted to carve but it went wrong you will have already done this next part. Cut the pumpkin in half from the stalk right down the centre to the bottom. Scoop out all the insides (the seeds and the stringy bits, you can separate the seed from the string and keep to one side for either grown your own pumps next year or roasting and eating) with one of our pumpkin carving tool sets or you can use an ice-cream scoop. That’s the messy bit done!!

 

Now you need to cut your pumpkin into cubes of around 1cm or less, you can either peal your pumpkin before you dice it up or you can cut off the skin as you go. If you are using a large Pumpkin you will only need half of the pumpkin, if you have smaller ones you might need to use the whole of the vegetable for 500g.

 

Finely chop the onion and grate the cheese. Put the cheese to one side for a minute and fry the onion until soft and turning golden, about 5 minutes should do it. Add the pumpkin and cook for a further 2 minutes while you boil the kettle for the stock. Add in the salt, cinnamon and ginger to season then add the tomato puree and stir. Mix the stock and pour over the pumpkin. Bring to boil then simmer for around 8 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated. Place in a bowl and leave the pumpkin mixture to one side to cool while you do the next phase.

 

Pre heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6, while the oven pre heats roll out the pastry you will need to make circles of around 4 to 5 inches, you can use the top of a pint glass or small saucer to give you an idea of size. You are looking to get around 15 circles out of the pastry. Once cut, beat the 2 eggs and brush each circle with the slightly beaten egg. Now back to the pumpkin mixture, add the grated cheese to the bowl and stir until evenly mixed. Place 2 or 3 spoonful’s of the pumpkin mixture on each of the circles of pastry and fold over one side of the pastry. To seal the mixture in place roll or fold the edge of each pasty slightly and then pinch the edges together to make a good seal and give the look of a proper Cornish Pasty. Finally brush some more of the beaten egg over the top side of each pumpkin pasty to glaze. You could also sprinkle chopped Pumpkin seeds (from a packet or ones that you have roasted previously) over them while the egg is still slightly sticky and sprinkle the ½ tsp. of All Spice over the pasties so each one is lightly covered.

 

Place them on some grease proof paper and with a knife pierce the center of each pasty to help release the steam. Bake for around 20 minutes or until they turn slightly golden and start to rise. Now you have your very own, handmade pumpkin pasties ideal for Halloween or Harry Potter themed parties.

There are loads of activities that you can do to keep them occupied, from creating scary decorations to baking monster cakes. We have created some activities for you to download including this printable Frankenstein Halloween mask. There are a number of different characters to choose from for 2014, and the best thing is they are FREE. All you need is a computer connected to a printer, some paper, a piece of string and some scissors.

 

Below you will find the first of our printable Halloween masks to download, the scary kids Frankenstein monster mask. Just click the image of the mask below then print out the downloadable PDF document on A4 paper. Cut along the outside line where the mask finishes and cut out the eye’s along the white dotted line (you may need an adult to help you with the cutting). Then just cut a piece of string that fits around the back of your head and stick on to the back of the mask about half way down on each side with some tape.

 

The beauty of these Halloween masks is when the kids run around, as they do, and rip the mask, all you have to do is print it out again.

Our top 10 Harry Potter Wands Replicas from the Movies



Here at The Film Cell we sell well over 50 different character wands from the Harry Potter movie series, there are so many great collectable replicas. It got us thinking, which would be our top ten? So we created a list and sent it around the office and we got everyone’s opinion (there are some serious Harry Potter fans in the office so this wasn’t an easy task). We wanted to create a list that also included some of the fantastic collector’s sets that are perfect for displaying in and around you home. Keep reading to see what the outcome was and let us know if you agree with the results of our office discussion below.

 

Harry Potter Wands starting from 10th to 1st Place

 

10th place - Fleur Delacour Wand from the Triwizard Set
The Triwizard wand set has to feature in our top ten list of Harry Potter wand replicas and collectables, but we struggled with what wand would feature in 10th place. Harry’s is ruled out as it features higher up in our list, but the other 3 wands look great they could have all feature in the top 10. But we only wanted to pick one… In the end it came down to looks, and we went for Fleur Delacour’s wands.

 

Triwizard Wand Set


 

9th place - Umbridge Wand & Display
To start our top ten off we have one of the most hated ladies in the entire Harry Potter series, the very pink and very evil Professor Umbridge wand. This wand is one of the shortest we have available and comes with a really nice pink display plaque so you can hang this on the wall.

 

Umbride Wand

 

8th place - Ron Weasley Wand in Ollivander's Box
Ron Weasley’s wand caused him and most of his friend’s loads of hassle in the second book and movie, for this reason Ron’s wand is in 8th place. It’s not the best looking wand by far but if you are trying top collect the top characters then you have to have Ron Weasley’s wand in your collection. 

 

Ron Weasley Wand

 

7th place - Lucius Malfoy Wand & Cane
Theoretically speaking the Lucius Malfoy’s snake wand is actually a cane or walking stick but the wand that comes as part of the cane is so good that we have to place this in 7th position.

 

Lucius Malfoy Cane & Wand

 

6th place - Bellatrix Wand & Display
Every top 10 list would have to include a Bellatrix Wand so we have added this is 6th position. There are 2 different versions available but there is only one that would warrant being in our top ten and that is the curved movie version with display plaque.

 

Bellatrix Lestrange Wand

 

5th place - Weasley Wand Set
We are over half way there, we had such a hard time choosing between Fred and George Weasley’s wand that we thought 5th place would go to them both. Each of these wands is only available as part of this set and are not available to order individually which in our opinion makes them extra special. We think you’ll agree that this display piece looks fabulous and well deserves the 5th spot.

 

Weasley Wand Set

 

4th place - Voldemort Light-up Wand
The wand to take the 4th place spot is Voldemort’s, our favourite version has to be the light-up version. Why, because this comes with a full colour packaging and with a simple wave the tip of the replica wand lights up.

 

Voldemort Light Up Wand

 

3rd place - Hermione's Wand from the Dumbledore Army Set
Next up we have Hermione’s wand, this is available individually as well as part of one of our many collectors sets. One of the best sets we have has to be the Dumbledore’s Army set and as Hermione’s wand comes as 1 of 6 we have place this in third position.

 

Dumbledore Army Wand Set

 

2nd place - Harry Potter Remote
In second place it has to be Harry Potter’s wand, without whom we would not even being writing this blog. There are so many versions of Harry’s wand, ones that light-up, a version that is a pen, Harry’s wand is even in the Triwizard wand set as well as the Dumbledore Army collection. But we had to choose one that would take this second spot, and that one had to be the remote control version. If you have heard about this wand before this can control multiple devices such as mp3 players, TV’s and DVD players. With the swish of the hand you can change the channel, turn up the volume of your iPod and fast forward to your favourite Harry Potter scene.

 

Harry Potter Wand Remote

 

1st place - Deluxe Dumbldore's Elderwand in Bronze
The wand to take 1st place has to be Dumbledore’s wand, also known as the Elderwand, the ultimate wand of power. The Elderwand is also one of the 3 deathly Hallows, so there was no arguments. Dumbledore’s wand has to be placed at the top of our list. Being the most powerful weapon in the world of Harry Potter we had to go for the super deluxe bronze version. So there it is, our winning replica is the Deluxe version of Dumbledore’s wand in bronze with luxury display cabinet.
