The Best Costumes in Star Wars: The Force Awakens

by |March 30, 2016

Star Wars The Force Awakens Costumes

A (not so) long time ago in a galaxy (not so) far, far away…
Star Wars fans have long been analyzing, obsessing, admiring, and even recreating the many classic costumes seen in both the original Star Wars trilogy as well as the prequel trilogy, and we’re happy to tell you the trend has continued with the release of The Force Awakens. It’s not just an act of ritual for long time fans; the new costumes in The Force Awakens (or TFA as it is often referred to on message boards and Star Wars fan circles) are made with such care, attention to detail, and unexpected awesomeness that reverence for these new costumes are just as justified as our collective admiration for the simple yet wicked elegance of the Vader suit or the enigmatic heritage of Boba Fett’s Mandalorian garb. This list goes through our standout favorites from the TFA newcomers—the cream of the galactic crop—and we might even have a few little tidbits sprinkled in about how the costumes inform the characters, their war-torn world, and how the dynamic between the mysterious First Order and the struggling Resistance continues to inspire our love for that galaxy far, far away.

The Evolution of Santa in Movies Infographic

 

Christmas time is here once again, and if you’re a good little boy or girl, you’ve already got everyone on your list exactly what they wanted. Now that all the shopping is done, do you just kick back unentertained, drinking copious amounts of egg nog in silence? No… you spend the rest of December watching Christmas movies, of course!

Santa has always been a significant part of almost any Christmas movie: he has a specific concept of good and evil, he always prefers faith over skepticism, and he can even be duplicitous—is he out to help us or is he out for himself? The best Santa movies have these kinds of themes that get to the heart of our holiday mythos. On the other side of the [chocolate] coin, there are the Santa movies where he goes to Mars or he gets his sleigh stuck in the sandy beaches of Florida. No matter which type of Christmas film you prefer, we think you’ll enjoy this chronological look at Santa Claus’ cinematic exploits in this very merry infographic.

“You’ve taken your first step into a larger world…”

Okay, so Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens isn’t even out yet, but Star Wars fans can’t contain their Death Star-sized excitement. Our normal countdown clock is usually for Halloween, but this year it's set to December 17th because that’s when Star Wars is finally back in theaters. After that day we'll finally be able to stop asking ourselves the big questions, like: will Chewie finally beat C-3PO at Holochess? Will BB-8 and R2-D2 be BFFs? Is Kylo Ren really just Ponda Baba in disguise? Yep, the big questions. But since Halloween is our specialty, we decided to make some really wizard Star Wars printable patterns for all you...

Downloadable Valentine's Day Cards

Love is in the air and that can only mean one thing--Valentine's Day is only a couple weeks away! Don't panic, because we here at HalloweenCostumes.com have got you covered (PHEW!). For some people this holiday is just representative of slick consumerism, an invention of greeting card companies, but for others it's a beautiful excuse to celebrate romance, candy hearts, and everything saccharine. It's probably a little bit of both, but that doesn't mean it can't be fun, right? That's why...

One of the most iconic sets on The Walking Dead (heck, maybe all of TV!) is the Governor's secret chill pad... the one that has an entire wall composed of decomposed zombie heads in fish tanks. We loved this so much that we thought it would make for some absolutely creepy and actually pretty easy DIY Halloween decor! Not gonna lie, after we finished we had the urge to just sit back, relax, and watch the zombie fish tank for a couple of hours...
