Death Star Dress: Dark Side of the Skirt
Check out Jennifer Landa’s fancy Death Star dress, that comes complete with galaxy tights and a TIE Interceptor serre-tête. I’m sure all Star Wars fans are going a bit loony over this, and I have to say that it looks pretty good.
Jennifer premiered her dress at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. She had seen a Death Star costume before, and loved the idea of cosplay, which is why she came up with this dress. The Death Star shape comes from an exaggerated bubble skirt. To go with it, she came up with the character Miss Death Star.
The main shape was made out of a papier-machéed beach ball, which was then deflated and cut in half. She cut a hole into it and inserted a salad bowl. All in all, it looks pretty great, don’t you think? Darth Vader sure would be proud.
You can find out more about her on her blog.
