Star Wars Costume Spotlight: Other Costumes with Helmets from the Rebellion
For today’s Star Wars costume spotlight, we’ll take a look at a variety of costumes from Revenge of the Sith, A New Hope, Return of the Jedi, and The Force Awakens.
These costumes include pilots’ gear, and the costume of the minor character Captain Typho.
Now lets first look at the costume of Typho before moving on to the helmets and gear.

Today’s costume spotlight is on Qui-Gon Jin, Obi-Wan Kenobi (when he was a younger man), and young Anakin Skywalker!
I grouped them together because they did appeared together in Episode I: The Phantom Menace. It’s interesting to compare a young padawan, a padawan on the verge of becoming a Jedi, and a Master Jedi.
Here’s the full Qui-Gon Jin costume from the front:

Star Wars Costume Spotlight: Mace Windu and Luminara Unduli
Today’s Star Wars costume spotlights is Jedi Master Mace Windu and Jedi Master Luminara Unduli!
During the battle of Geonosis, Windu, Luminara, and several other Jedi fought against an overwhelming force of battle droids. During the battles, Windu fought against Jango Fett and won, cutting off his head in the process.
Windu did fight tough battles during the Clone Wars including the one on Dantooine. Luminara also fought a lot of battles too in the Clone Wars, including the one where she and Yoda helped reenforce the Wookies on the planet Kashyyyk.
After Anakin told Windu that Palpatine was the Sith Lord that all Jedi had been looking for, Windu took three Jedi masters to arrest Palpatine but they failed. Windu tried to kill Palpatine but Anakin interfered and Windu was thrown from the window.
As for Luminara she did at first survived Order 66 but was then captured by the Empire and was executed in her cell. Her bones where used to lure any surviving Jedi that also survived Order 66 like Kanen and Ezra for example.
Here’s the full Mace Windu costume. You can see here that the sleeves of the Jedi robe hare a lot longer:
Here’s the full Luminara costume. The fabric design is very well thought out but the wrist bracelets and belt buckle look rusted:
In this close-up you can see that there are holes on the bottom of the Luminara’s robe:

Star Wars Costume Spotlight: Palpatine’s Aides
This next Star Wars costume spotlight will be of Palpatine’s aides who are named Sly Moore and Mas Amedda.
Throughout Attack of the Clones, the Clone Wars series, and Revenge of the Sith these two are seen serving as Palpatine’s (Sidious’s) aides.
During the rise of the Empire Mas became Palpatine’s Grand Vizier while Sly became Palpatine’s Chief Adviser.
While Mas wears three different Senator robes during the movie series, Sly only wears the same traditional Senator robes with a cape.

Star Wars Costume Spotlight: Senator Mon Mothma
Today’s Star Wars costume spotlight will be of an important ally who helped Senator Organa spark the Rebellion to go against the Empire: the great Senator Mon Mothma herself.
Senator Mothma was first formally part of the Galactic Senate and the Imperial Senate until she spoke out against the Empire and was marked for treason.
Then with the help of Senator Organa and other allies, she was able to create the Rebellion in hopes of destroying the Empire and bring back peace to the Galaxy. In Rogue One, she was able to recruit Jyn Erso who led the team of rebels to the planet Scarif to steal the Death Star plans.
In episode VI she was seen briefing the Rebel Alliance on the plan of attack to destroy the second Death Star.
Through out the series, though Mothma wore different dresses, she always wore her traditional Chandrilla necklaces:

Star Wars Costume Spotlight: Senator Bail Organa
Hey Star Wars fans! For this next costume spotlight, it will be of Leia’s adopted father, the great Senator Bail Organa.
Remember, according to Leia, Obi-Wan served Senator Organa during the Clone Wars. During Order 66 Senator Organa went to the Jedi Temple to look for Yoda, but instead he saw thousands of Troops attacking the temple and witnessed the death of a youngling.
After he rescued Yoda and Obi-Wan, Bail Organa was then entrusted with adopting Leia when she was born.
Senator Organa was also seen in the Star Wars Rebels TV series and in the Rogue One film. During a scene in Rogue One, he mentioned Obi-Wan’s name saying that he will send Leia to Tatooine to fetch him.
Then in episode IV he died along with his people when his peaceful home planet Alderaan was destroyed by the Death Star.
Before we go onto the costume lets look at this composite sketch of Senator Organa:
Here’s Senator Organa wearing a traditional Senator outfit in Attack of the Clones:
