    1 Week Ago  Apr 10, 2014, 2:53 PM - New Star Wars Costumes: The Original Trilog Book by the creator of the RPF! #1

    Brandon Alinger, the founder of this site and manager of the Prop Store of London's LA office has his first book on the market!

    brandon-alinger-star-wars-costumes-original-trilogy-book.jpg

    Here is the official description:

    Who can forget the first time they saw Darth Vader with his black cape and mask? The white hard-body suit of the stormtroopers? Or Leia’s outfit as Jabba’s slave? These costumes–like so many that adorned the characters of that galaxy far, far away–have become iconic. For the first time, the Lucasfilm Archives has unpacked the original costumes to be revealed in breathtaking detail.

    Featuring all-new photography, Star Wars Costumes: The Original Trilogy affords both new and longtime Star Wars fans the opportunity to examine the stormtrooper armor and discover how it changed from movie to movie; explore Boba Fett’s suit and inspect the rarely seen details of his blaster and jetpack; compare the helmets and jumpsuits of the rebel fighters; and study the details of the Hoth fighter uniforms.


    This lavish large-format book not only showcases high-quality photography of each costume, it also pairs these stunning images with original sketches, behind-the-scenes photographs, production notes, and stories.
    The book is listed at $60, but you can preorder on Amazon for $40!

    Yeah, this sounds like an interesting book, but I'll want to see what's actually in it before buying it. I'm hoping that it will actually have some decent pictures of B-wing pilots and their chestboxes and helmets... While I have a movie-accurate B-wing pilot helmet there are still a few greeblie details that I can't quite make out in the pictures I've seen. It's encouraging that it says "compare the helmets and jumpsuits of the rebel fighters" but that could just mean tiny, blurry pictures of the A/B/Y-wing pilots like there usually are...

    (I had to scratch-build my chestbox, unlike my helmet-- except for the helmet greeblies-- but I'm not too worried about the chestbox, I think I pretty much nailed it. The helmet greeblies though...)

    Hi all,

    This was a very exciting project to be a part of, and I think the RPF members will really enjoy it.

    The highlight of the book is all-new photography of the original costumes, shot recently in the Archives (including the rebel pilots mentioned above.)

    No tiny, blurry pictures here. :-)

    Best,
    Brandon

    Very cool! I saw it on theforce.net, but they had a blurry cover pic so I didn't notice the author. Now we just need a good prop book. SW Chronicles was good, but often used tiny pics.

    Congratulations Brandon! Finally!


    I will order one book for sure but do you think there might be a possibility for a RPF group order, maybe even signed (by you) books????????
    That would be too cool!

    Sounds like this could be a great reference piece to have, got it pre-ordered. Given the title of Star Wars Costumes: The Original Trilogy, is there a Prequel version in the works?

    Just a quick question: Is there a Deluxe/Limited/Special/Collectors-Edition planned for this book like for the "Dressing a Galaxy", "Sculpting a Galaxy" or "Bluprints" books? I'd really love to 'upgrade' my order to a special variant to present it along with the other books in my collection.
