Book Review: Dressing a Galaxy: The Costumes of Star Wars

Dressing a Galaxy: The Costumes of Star Wars

This is a hardcover book with a dust jacket. The book is well bind and sturdy. The paper stock is low gloss and of high quality. This is a well constructed book.

The focus of this book is on the costumes for Star Wars Episode I, II and III. The amazing variety of costumes were designed by Trisha Biggar, the costume designer for Star Wars prequel trilogy.

There are more than 300 photos included. The texture of the materials and exquisite details of the designs are shown clearly with many close up photos. All the costumes are captioned by the costume department and some by the actors — Samuel L. Jackson, Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen, Natalie Portman and others.

There are little stories on the creating the costumes, from the inspiration, designing, sourcing to execution. It's like a making-of book that focuses on costume development.

The costumes are split into different categories, and respective chapters:

  1. Jedi vs Sith
  2. Royalty
  3. Military Wear
  4. The Galactic Senate
  5. Slaves, Rogues & Bounty Hunters
  6. Padme's Journey

This book has the depth, and provides an intriguing read.
