Who can forget the first time Darth Vader strode onto Princess Leia's ship in his black cape and grimacing mask? Or the hard white armor of his stormtroopers? Not to mention Boba Fett's beat up Mandalorian armor, Leia's outfit as Jabba's slave, or Chewbacca's giant fur suit? These costumes from the original three films have become iconic, and in many ways help define the Star Wars universe. With more than 200 new costume photos, production sketches, notes, and candid shots, this oversized album explores the creation of these clothes and costume props in unprecedented detail, while interviews with the production team reveal how these much-loved characters were envisioned.
"If you're a hardcore fan of Star Wars or filmmaking, or if you're considering creating a costume of your own for cosplay or Halloween or just wandering the streets of Mos Eisley, this book is a must-read."—Big Shiny Robot
