Whether you’re heading to Star Wars Celebration VI or not, this is some funny stuff. Dark Horse Editor Randy Stradley and Star Wars author Ryder Windham will be attending CVI and have announced a pith helmet contest!

“So, this is happening at Celebration: Ryder Windham and I are inviting others to bring and wear pith helmets during the show. No, sorry, this will not automatically make you a Pith Lord. However, you WILL have fun, and Ryder and I (the actual Pith Lords) are trying to come up with some way to reward you spirit of adventure and your very sensible headgear.”Randy Stradley

What is a pith helmet? Well it’s one of those funny British helmets you see them wearing in the jungle. If you’re planning on joining in the festivities, be sure to let Randy know on Facebook as he’s asking who all will be wearing a pith helmet and if anyone would be interested in buying one at the convention.
