Sentosa Sandsation Brings You 20 Star Wars-Themed Sand Sculptures

Did the pictures of Sentosa Sandsation’s Marvel-themed sand sculptures give you major FOMO last year? Here’s the massive Iron-Man flying over New York display to jolt your memory.

Sentosa Sandsation is back again, and this year, it’s Star Wars-themed. If preview pictures are anything to go by, this is a must-go for all Star Wars fans from across the galaxy.

Star Wars’ vast desert landscape comes alive at Sentosa

As we do not have actual pictures of the sand sculptures yet, here are some pictures we found from the web to give you a gist of what you might expect there.

1. Darth Vader

Darth Vader – the anti-hero with the most infamous redemption arc – will definitely be resplendent as a towering sand sculpture, thanks to his iconic mask.

However, this could be the only time you’ll see him lounging on the gentle dunes on Siloso beach so don’t miss your chance.

2. Yoda

Recognised by its long ears and dwarfed physique, the incredibly wise Yoda might seem ‘cute’ or ‘cuddly’ to many people.

But if you’re at the event, you can probably expect him to be taller than you, so you may want to point your camera up for that selfie.

3. Jabba The Hutt

We’d expect that this notoriously slimy bad guy would most certainly ooze confidence as a vast sand sculpture too.

Jabba The Hutt will progressively be brought to life by renowned sculpter Joo Heng, so definitely keep your eyes peeled for this exhibit.

4. Chewbacca

Chewbacca is not a stranger even to those who aren’t big on Star Wars. Easily recognised by his furry exterior, it wouldn’t be hard to spot him when you’re there.

5. BB-8

BB-8 might just be one of the cutest Star Wars characters to-date, especially when it comes to the new generation of fans.

We’d absolutely love to get close to a life-sized version of its adorable rounded head and robot body.

Seeing BB-8 IRL might result in you wishing to pet it, but kindly refrain from doing so. This BB-8 is made of sand, and not metal, so it’s best to ensure that the display remains untouched so other fans may enjoy it.

Even though we only included 5 sculptures, you can expect to see up to 20 bigger than life-sized sand exhibits at the event.

Sand-sculpting workshops & sand art

After admiring the beautiful sand art, you may be inspired to take part in sand-sculpting workshops yourself. You can expect to attend live demonstrations from the pro sand artists there, as long as you sign up in advance.

Those with extra time to spare, can also consider attending the Sentosa International Sand Sculpting Competition, to watch the experts at work.

If all that isn’t enough, you can also grab your picnic mats and head to Palawan Green for free Star Wars movie screenings — only available on 31 Aug & 1, 14, and 15 Sep.

You can visit the sculptures for free

The event will take place at Sentosa’s Siloso Beach from 31 Aug to 15 Sep, and lucky for us, entry is free.

In addition, S’poreans will also get to enjoy free admission into the island both via Sentosa Express or driving through the Sentosa Gateway vehicular gantry.

Venue: Sentosa Siloso Beach
Date: 31 Aug to 15 Sep
Time: 10am-8.30pm
Nearest MRT: HabourFront Station

So since it’s free, even if you’re not a Star-Wars fan, the fact that you have read till the end already proves your interest. So jio your friends and head down for some sandsational fun.

See you there!
