Featuring 70 hand-crafted costumes from the first six blockbuster Star Wars films, “Star Wars and the Power of Costume The Exhibition” reveals the artists’ creative process—and uncovers the connection between character and costume. This amazing exhibit is now open at Discovery Times Square.
George Lucas imagined and created a fantastical world filled with dynamic characters who told the timeless story of the hero’s journey. The costumes shaped the identities of these now famous characters, from the menacing black mask of Darth Vader and the gilded suit of C-3PO, to the lavish royal gowns of Queen Amidala and a bikini worn by Princess Leia when enslaved by Jabba the Hutt. A special presentation for the showing at Discovery Times Square in New York will feature seven additional costumes from the highly anticipated film, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
Museum hours are Sunday – Tuesday, 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.; Wednesday – Thursday, 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.; and Friday – Saturday, 10 a.m. – 9 p.m. Final Entry is 45 minutes prior to closing.
