Star Wars CostumesIf you and your friends dress up in Star Wars Costumes, you'll have tons of people wanting to take their pictures with you and you get to play with lightsabers! What more could you want in life?
With six movies and Clone Wars, there are tons of costumes to choose from! You could go with characters from the original Star Wars series, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. Or you could go with characters from The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith. Or go for the gusto and have characters from each!
Just to make sure you’re living up to your Star Wars Costumes, here’s some interesting Star Wars trivia for you!
The look of the Darth Vader suit was based on robes worn by Bedouin Warriors.
Chewbacca's "voice" is a combination of several animals including bears, badgers, walrus and camels.
The word "Jedi" is derived from the Japanese words "Jidai Geki" which translate as "period adventure drama." A period adventure drama is a Japanese TV soap opera program set in the samurai days. George Lucas mentioned in an interview that he saw a "Jidai Geki" program on TV while in Japan a year or so before the movie was made and liked the word.
Senator Amidala is the best shot; she almost never misses. This is a reference to her daughter, Leia, who also almost never misses.
Having Han Solo frozen in carbonite was (at least in part) due to the fact that they were not sure that Harrison Ford would return for a third film. When the original Star Wars was made Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill were signed for a three picture deal, but Harrison Ford refused. Ford even requested George Lucas to kill off Solo, since the character had played its part already, but Lucas refused, saying that he still had a heroic part for Han Solo to play in Return of the Jedi.
Revenge of the Sith has the highest body count of any of the Star Wars films.
Attack of the Clones marks the first time Yoda uses a lightsaber. Previously the puppet had problems grasping his own lightsaber and making it look realistic.
Queen Amidala's throne-room dress took eight weeks to design.
Anakin has two model ships on his bed in Tatooine. These are models of early designs considered for the Naboo Starfighters. In the documentaries on the DVD, we see these models being rejected by George Lucas.
Darth Maul has a total of ten horns on his head.
Ok, enough trivia. May the Force be with you!
