With the LED accents flashing, and the voice module producing the eerie breath effects, we're sure you'll have any rebel scum you meet shivering in their shoes...
Stormtrooper down for what? You know what these guys are all about. Battling rebel scum, doing the bidding of their Emperor, and shooting their blaster guns with incredibly poor aim.

Star Wars Movie Costumes
For serious Star Wars fans, you know that your favorite character's looks and costumes evolved over the course of the franchise. We've created this handy visual guide to help illustrate their evolution. Check out this resource to help you compare movie details straight from the screen to help make your costume look more authentic or to find unique DIY touches to add the on-screen details to your unique Star Wars costume.
Luke Skywalker Costume Ideas
In the course of Luke's evolution through the original Star Wars trilogy, he grew from his humble beginnings as a Tatooine farm boy in A New Hope to become a Jedi Master in Return of the Jedi. Luke's costume in the first film was meant to portray a look that was both simple and practical. A basic Japanese shirt with elongated sleeves, white trousers and Chelsea style boots would serve as his costume through the movie. Accessories included a brown leather belt with multiple pouches, a lightsaber hook and knee high wraps. By the time of Empire Strikes Back, Luke's costume has evolved into a standard Rebel combat suit with some unique costume touches. Comprised of khaki wool and featuring accent pockets, this costume was also complete with a leather accessory belt. By the time he becomes a Jedi, Luke's apparel has turned into a stark black jumpsuit covered by a raw silk kimono, a look that is ominous and full of mystery.
Han Solo Costume Ideas
Han's costume had to help define his rogue nature so a very plain Viyella shirt and a pocketed vest, blue pants with tuxedo style segmented stripes along with a handcrafted leather gun belt and English riding boots would serve as his space cowboy-like costume. Only minor costume changes were implemented for his Empire Strike Back look, including a new western style plastron shirt replacing the previous one. A jacket similar to his original vest, along with similar boots and a gun belt finished his costume look. One of the few major costume changes throughout the trilogy involved the Endor mission, when Han donned a duster style coat. It was hand painted with an air-brushed camouflage pattern. Details on the jacket included large cargo pockets and a large slit up the back.
Princess Leia Costume Ideas
Leia starts her evolution as a Princess and a Senator, so her costume was fairly nondescript, yet still had a touch of elegance. A hooded gown made from crepe de chine featured open cut sleeves and was accented with a medieval style belt and knee high white boots. By the time of Empire Strikes Back, she has a new look as a leader of the Alliance to Restore the Republic. She wears a snow combat outfit that continues her established white pallete featuring a white jumpsuit and off-white thermal vest. She then joins the Rebel command team on Endor in Return of the Jedi, and wears the same camouflage outfitted gear as the rest of the squad. Her camouflaged poncho covered gabardine combat trousers and was accented with a custom helmet and English riding boots.
Padme Amidala Costume Ideas
Padme Amidala has perhaps the most costume changes of any character in the Star Wars universe, but her evolution throughout the prequel trilogy outlines her evolution as a character. We first meet her as a Queen and her throne room gown conveys her regal nature perfectly. A wide-shouldered paneled gown, accented with gold embroidery, jewels, and an elegant fur hem were the key elements to this costume look. By the time of Episode II, she is both a Senator and an action hero in her own right, so her Geonosis costume is the most recognizable look of her new status. A simple white jumpsuit accented with an off-white shawl, accented by silver armbands, a tan utility belt, and action boots comprise this action ready outfit. By the conclusion of the trilogy, she has both fallen for Anakin Skywalker and is carrying their unborn child, so her costume for her trip to Mustafar is simple and accommodating to pregnancy. A tan collared shirt outfitted by a leather crisscrossing harness, accented with gloves, gold clasps, and white pants finished this costume look.
Obi-Wan Costume Ideas
Obi-Wan Kenobi's prequel trilogy evolution starts from his status as a Jedi Padawan to becoming Anakin's Jedi master and ultimately his opponent at the conclusion. Starting with The Phantom Menace, Obi-Wan's costume was constructed to be similar to the one worn by the character in the original film. A tunic and tabard over plain white shirts and pants achieved this costume look. The tunic and tabard combo was constructed with a light woven fabric known as Indian homespun. By the time he becomes a Jedi, he wears a vintage brown wool cloak that matched the one used by the character in A New Hope. The only notable change in his costume look was an alteration of pant and undershirt color in Revenge of the Sith. He costume look in all of the films was accented with a leather belt and riding boots.
Anakin and Darth Vader Costume Ideas
Anakin's journey through the prequel trilogy took him from humble slave beginnings to becoming the most feared villain in the Galaxy. When we first meet him as a child in The Phantom Menace, his slave costume served to convey his status, with coarse materials and a rough-hewn fabric material. Ragged leg wraps, faux suede boots, and a leather utility belt rounded out the costume. A simple addition of a detailed helmet with attached goggles served him when he became a podracing champion. By the time of Attack of the Clones, Anakin had become a Jedi Padawan and wore a costume similar in style to the other Jedi, but of different construction. A leather tabard covered a darker hued tunic and pants with a belt and boots similar to Obi-Wan's.
Only very slight color changes were implemented for Revenge of the Sith, but he was outfitted with the typical Jedi cloak. After turning to the dark side he nearly perished as Darth Vader, but was rescued and repaired by Palpatine. With the costume intended to be a mix of cybernetic technology and the powers of the dark side, the debut of the infamous Darth Vader support suit would complete his costume evolution. It's brief appearance at the conclusion of the prequel trilogy was an only slightly altered design from the costume used in the old films with a polished, brand-new effect added.
