Star Wars began from a small budget film in 1977 and grew in success as sci-fi fans became enhanced by how out of this world it really was, from the set, characters to the incredible costumes. Star Wars has enthralled the world for over three decades with no signs of stopping as it expands to everything from toys, books, TV series and video games and of course, Star Wars costumes.
Whether you’re a fan of the recent Clone Wars film, the prequel, or the original trilogy days, you can get almost any Star Wars costume you want for any fancy dress event, convention, Halloween party or Sci-fi theme night and they’re all sure to make you a hit. Most costume stores offer every Star Wars costume you can think of. The six movies and its characters have their own inimitable aspects so make great costumes for adults and children alike.
Darth Vader Costumes
Very few things define Star Wars like Darth Vader, which is why it’s the most popular Star Wars costume and it’s easy to get hold of costumes that makes it easy to imitate the evil Dark Lord of the Sith. You can purchase Darth Vader face masks, black fabric capes, jumpsuits, boot tops, and Darth Vader belts. You could also include Darth Vader´s lightsaber, gloves, and a breathing device so you’re the perfect imitation.
As the ultimate hero, dressing up like Luke Skywalker is also popular along with other Jedi’s. Tunics are widely available along with belts, boots and capes. Of course, being a Jedi gives you an excellent excuse to get a light sabre and re-enact the fight scenes from the films.
Princess Leia Costumes
This is a popular Star Wars costume and one for the ladies. A princess Leia costume is both original and elegant. You can easily get hold of the long white dress and belt. If you’re unable to get the infamous hairstyle then it is worth getting a wig.
Yoda the wise and powerful Jedi Master in the universe of Star Wars also makes a great Star Wars costume all though a little more difficult to pull off. It is a little more minimal though as you only need a long beige robe and a mask.
The most striking part of a Stormtrooper costume is the white battle armour along with the helmet. You can get jump suits with the body armour attached along with matching masks. You can also purchase extra accessories such as guns for this Star Wars Costume
Although I have named only the most popular of the Star Wars costumes, there are numerous others available. You can also buy full Chewbacca costumes with realistic faux fur features from head to toe. There are also Emperor Palpatine costumes with full length red robes, masks and latex hands. You can obtain almost any Star Wars costume that your heart desires to be sure that you imitate your favourite character perfectly. So be sure to turn up to your next fancy dress wearing one of the Star Wars costumes. You’ll look out of this world.
