“Star Wars” fans will be amazed by the ‘Star Wars and the Power of Costume” exhibit at the Denver Art Museum.
Want to see Darth Vader’s original costume? How about getting to see Han Solo’s outfit and Chewbacca’s actual fur up close? I’m not quite sure what those candy corn balls are on the bottom of Queen Amidala’s gown, but they are amazing in person! Come get blown away by the “Star Wars and the Power of Costume” exhibit at the Denver Art Museum that opens this weekend, Nov. 13, 2016. This incredible show features 70 costumes from all seven films, and over 300 additional cool items hand-picked from the crates at Skywalker Ranch. Keep those eyes open for hidden Easter eggs that “Star Wars” fans will love to hunt for. Just walking up to the building is a joy to see the profound words of Yoda “Luminous beings are we.” Of course the real excitement begins as you are guided by the force to walk up the stairs to enter a world filled jaw dropping costumes and the music of John Williams.
No kidding this exhibit is surreal. It seriously has everything from every gorgeous gown worn by Natalie Portman, to the Emperor’s nasty fingernails. Cosplayers will thrilled to inspect the flawless details of every piece of material; of every dress, and of every gadget. Eyes will be filled with tiny tears of joy when visitors see R2D2, C-3PO, and BB8 up close and personal. Once you see Princess Leia’s bikini from Jabba’s palace, you will wonder how in the world did Carrie Fisher even wear that thing.
According to Laela French, Director of the Archives at Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, “Star Wars” is as popular as ever, and it is deeply woven into our culture and heritage. Upon visiting the exhibit for the first time, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper reminisced about seeing “Star Wars” for the first time and mentioned that our beautiful state is rated as the most culturally engaged states in the county. As Yoda might say, an amazing show, this is. Come and see it, you will.
