Rebel, Jedi, Princess, Queen: Star Wars and the Power of Costume Exhibition

While visiting family in Florida this week, I got wind of a Star Wars exhibition going on in nearby St. Petersburg. A little investigation found that it was the Smithsonian Institute’s Star Wars and the Power of Costume – a display of over 60 original screen-used costumes from throughout the Star Wars saga. Fortunately, I got a chance to check it out on my last day in town. I really had no idea what to expect going into this exhibition. And now, having seen it, I’m still struggling to put into words the impact of actually seeing these iconic pieces in person. So instead, I’m just going to let these phenomenal photos taken by my fiancée do the talking…

Star Wars and the Power of Costume is at the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, Florida until April 1st 2018. After that, it’ll be wrapping up its four-year tour at the Detroit Institute of Arts in Detroit, Michigan from May 20th to September 30th 2018. The exhibition is simply a must-see for any fan of the saga – so if you happen to be anywhere near these locations, be sure to check it out!
