It was spectacular. I took the Bean and his cousin. They had an absolute blast. They are little Star Wars junkies and loved it all.
The exhibit is open until October 1st, so you still have time. But you better hurry.
“Presenting more than 60 of the finest hand-crafted costumes featured in all seven films in the Star Wars saga, the exhibition uncovers the challenges, the intricate processes and the remarkable artistry of George Lucas, the concept artists and costume designers. The costumes reflect an eclectic mix of cultural, historical and mythical sources that add rich texture to the story. Through nine presentational “chapters” – Introduction: Dressing a Galaxy; Jedi versus Sith: Form, Function and Design; Concept and Design for Royalty and Beyond; Symbolism and Military Power; Outlaws and Outsiders; All Corners of the Galaxy: The Galactic Senate; After the Throne: Padmé’s Journey; Darth Vader: Iconic Villain; and Droid™ Design – visitors will explore the creative process from Lucas’s vision through concept drawings by artists such as Ralph McQuarrie and Iain McCaig, to the final costume designs of John Mollo and Trisha Biggar, among others.”
I enjoyed seeing the gowns and headdresses. So intricate. I also thought the Japanese influence was really interesting. And I loved learning how George Lucas came up with Chewy! I stinking love that Wookie.
The boys really loved the robots. Sam is obsessed with C3-PO. He was thrilled to see his same exact toy in the display case!!
Shout out for cool toys from the 80’s!!
The screens at the end of the exhibit were probably the kids favorite part. You got to become the characters. Pretty stinking cool.
