In a galaxy far, far away lives a little boy whom closely resembles a young Luke Sykwalker. "Luke" loves everything Star Wars. He has seen all six episodes, memorized the character encyclopedia, and is a frequent visitor on the official Star Wars website. "Luke" likes to reenact his favorite scenes with his classmates on the playground and at home with his collection of Star Wars action figures. So it was important to me to find a very special Star Wars costume for young "Luke".
CostumeDiscounters.com offers a fantastic selection of Star Wars costumes and accessories for both children and adults. They carry all of the favorite Star Wars characters such as Darth Vader, Yoda, and Princes Leia. Deciding among the 40 boys' Star Wars costumes was the hardest part. "Luke" announced his top favorites and then his father and I made the difficult decision of choosing only one. Ultimately we wanted a costume that looked authentic, came with all necessary items, and would still fit by Halloween.
We all were extremely impressed when the Kids Special Edition Stormtrooper Costume arrived a few days later. "Luke" couldn't wait to put it on. Not only was it very realistic but "Luke" was able to run, jump, and move just like a real Stormtrooper but without the stiffness. It was also much nicer than the Star Wars costumes that I've seen sold in the stores prior to Halloween for the same price.
This licensed Star Wars costume is made up of three main components, shirt, pants, and helmet/mask. The costume (shirt and pants) is made of heavyweight polyester material. The shirt has an attached foam utility belt and vinyl chest and shoulder pieces, which are padded. The shirt also has four Velcro closures up the back. The poly-foam boot tops are attached to the pants which have an elastic waist and vinyl accents. The Stormtrooper helmet is lightweight and completely surrounds the head for a very realistic look. The 2 halves of this helmet attach with Velcro in the middle of the head. Though I'm not sure how sturdy it actually is.
You will not need to use "the force" to dress your child in the Kids Special Edition Stormtrooper Costume. Thanks to Velcros and an elastic waist, this costume is very easy to put on over existing clothes and can accommodate heavier clothing for a cold evening trick or treating. I ordered a size medium for our 6 year old and there is plenty of room to grow into. The costume is actually very long but I tucked part of the pants into the boot tops for the pictures. It reminds me the scene where Luke meets Princes Leia for the first time.
Leia: "Aren't you a little short to be a stormtrooper?"
Luke: "Huh? Oh, the uniform. I'm Luke Skywalker. I'm here to rescue you.
The next costume that I'm going to buy (for myself) will be Princes Leia, and I will absolutely buy it from CostumeDiscounters.com. They have an extensive selection of costumes for all ages and offer a Low Price Guarantee Policy.
