Happy Holidays from OC

You’ve wrapped all the presents, you’ve put up all the decorations, and a blanket of fresh snow covers the yard. You aren’t at home, of course, because you’re watching Rogue One for the third time, with your family. We don’t want to disrupt anything; we’re only here to wish you happy holidays. Therefore, enjoy your time off, take the chance to spend time with family or friends, and romp around in the beautiful winter weather.

So from everybody at Official Costumes, Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays

Stocking Stuffers for Star Wars Fans

Star Wars Stocking StuffersDecember, the sneakiest of months, has once again crept upon us with the help of its guard Thanksgiving. Now thoughts turn from turkey stuffing to stocking stuffers, perfect for the Star Wars fan in your life, no matter how old they are. Below you’ll find great ways to make the Holidays grand with even the smallest gifts.

Stuff those stockings

The ultimate stocking stuffer for Star Wars fans is the humble lightsaber. Whether you have a budding Sith growing up at home or a Jedi master who sits on the council, one of our lightsabers is the perfect size to fit right inside their stocking. If you’re looking for something cheap and simple for a young fan, economy lightsabers are just right. Deluxe lightsabers give you more options, including extendable items, a few with light up and sound effects, and Bladebuilders. You can even get special color-changing lightsabers or samurai versions of your favorite weapons. Finally, supreme lightsabers offer incredible choices for the ultimate fan—only the most powerful can wield such legendary weapons!

While many masks are a mite more massive than the average stocking, don’t leave these items along the wayside. We have the now-famous Chewbacca voice changer mask, classic Darth Vader masks, and the famous bounty hunter Boba Fett. From flat masks for a quick costume change to deluxe masks for a stellar party look, we have nearly every character you might want. In addition, we have some extraordinary Supreme masks and helmets for the most noteworthy fans, including Supreme Darth Vader helmet, Stormtrooper, and Imperial Guard masks. These items can come with stands and certificates of authenticity, and use the same molds as the movies themselves!

There’s no stopping these stocking stuffers

If you’re looking for even more options, try out powerful gloves, boots, and blasters. You can even find things like robes or t-shirts for comfortable and fun gifts they can get into right away. No Star Wars fan should lack a gift from a galaxy far, far away while we’re here this Holiday season.

Thankful for Star Wars

Thankful for Star WarsIf you’re in the United States, you’re probably aware today is Thanksgiving Day.

It has food, family, football, and much more. There’s plenty to be thankful for this year.

Thankful for new movies

With the holiday season just beginning, we have plenty to look forward to. The sixteenth is Rogue One Day, and preview viewings have been painting it in a very favorable light. Additionally, recent information from Kathleen Kennedy, Lucasfilm president, tells us we’ll be seeing plenty of new Star Wars in the coming years, including the second and third films in the sequel trilogy. On May twenty-fifth 2018, we’ll get a Han Solo anthology film starring Alden Ehrenreich as our titular rogue. The movie also stars Donald Glover (Childish Gambino) as Lando Calrissian, and Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke in an unknown role. Director Josh Trank backed out of the planned Boba Fett movie, and consequently pushed the film back.

Still, there’s plenty to be thankful for this Holiday season. We hope you’ll take a break from the rushing around this year to settle down and enjoy a nice meal. Thanks for reading! Come back next week for more cool Star Wars information, and have a happy Thanksgiving weekend!

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

The Official Star Wars Costumes blog will be taking a short break for Christmas. For your enjoyment, here is the classic poem “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas,” revamped for Star Wars. We’ll be back on January 2nd:

‘Twas the night before Life Day, when all Coruscant
Held quiet their fine speeders, and left from their haunts;
The baubles were hung on the wroshyr with care,
Would The Master of Ceremonies be there?
The younglings were nestled all snug in their beds
While visions of sparklemint danced in their heads;
And Leia with her hair buns, and me with my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap,
When out on the pad there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the viewport I flew like a flash,
Slid open the shutters and accessed the cache.
The moons on the sides of the buildings so white,
Gave a shine to the city that lit up the night,
When what to my wondering eyes did appear,
But a miniature ship and eight tiny white zeer,
With a little old driver; none could go faster,
I knew in a moment it was the Master.
More rapid than mynocks his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name:
“Now Wampa! Now Jar-Jar! Now Logray and Boga!
On, Salacious! On, Mardji, On, Acklay and Jabba!
To the top of the spire! To the top of the wall!
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!”
As leaves before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky;
So up to rooftops the coursers they flew
With a ship full of toys, and the old Master too-
And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I turned off the screen, and was turning around,
Down the exhaust vent the Master came with a bound.
He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all dirtied with ashes and soot;
A bundle of toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked just like a peddler, opening his pack.
His eyes – how they sparkled! His dimples, how merry!
His nose was colored like a fresh rainbow berry!
His big happy mouth on his face like a swath,
And the beard on his chin was as white as cold Hoth;
The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke, it encircled his head like a wreath;
He had a broad face a round little belly
That shook when he laughed, like a bowl of Spice-jelly.
He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself;
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head
Helped me to know I had nothing to dread;
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And placed all the presents, then turned with a jerk,
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the roof vent he rose;
He sprang to his ship, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight-
“Happy Life Day to all, and to all a good night!”
