Jayne hats, TARDIS tea cosies, Portal cakes, Jabba the Hutt body pillows – is no one keeping the world of fancraft in check? From screen accurate prop and costume replicas to the application of fictional logos to our cars, from recycled floppy disk X-Wings to 300 acre Ewok villages. Why do we do this? Why WOULDN’T you do this? How far can it go? Will nobody think of the memes!
