Costumes, of Course

At first I was going to showcase some Halloween costumes, but then I realized I don’t know anyone who dresses up for Halloween and I didn’t want to scour the net for material because nothing was really springing to mind.

Then I remembered that I found this totally random website a few weeks ago, and I’ve been meaning to link to it. It’s the best of both worlds because it’s about costumes and it’s also awesome. It’s a website dedicated to the Dressing the Galaxy exhibit that went up in December of 2005  at the FIDM Museum & Galleries. It featured more than 100 costumes, accessories, and props from all six films. There are two galleries available online for your perusal: a tour of the gallery, which has some great panoramas of costumes including minor characters, and detail shots. These include a lot of Padmé’s gowns, but only two original trilogy costumes. The only trilogy items are Boba Fett, Han Solo, slave Leia, and an X-wing, which is kind of disappointing, but on the other hand, the prequel costumes are just gorgeous and worth a look. So check it out!

That being said, if you have Star Wars cosplay you’d like to send me, go ahead! I’ll do a spotlight on cosplay if I get enough material.
