The Force Is Strong With These Ones…
“The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.” (Obi-Wan) …And Steampunk just makes it that much cooler.
I really like Star Wars (the original trilogy, just to be very clear…none of this Jar Jar Binks and Ewan McGreggor doing a very strange impersonation of Alec Guinness for me, thank you). I also really love Steampunk. So putting the two together is pretty golden in my book and actually I think the results are pretty sweet.
Star Wars cosplay comes in a variety of guises and is always fun. I love all the different renditions that are out there. I love the super sexy versions, like the latex clad Stormtrooper below:
and I love the more faithful to the film versions, like this one:
I also really love a new twist on a classic and Steampunk definitely does that by weirdly adding a twist of times past and adding even more of a Sci-Fi element…be it one that is a bit Jules Verne-like but still I think it works and really adds to its original charm.
What do you think? Do you like Star Wars cosplay Steampunk-style? Would you give this a try? Let me know in the comments section.
Not sure this one really counts but it made me laugh…plus Han Solo cosplay is never bad.
