2. Clothes

We’ve already casually mentioned Star Wars clothes here and there with the talk of the Smuggler’s Bounty box, but suffice it to say that the options for wearing your love of the series are as widely varied as all the planets in the galaxy.

Recently, The Kessel Runway posted a new Her Universe piece: a Princess Leia dress, recreating her famous look from A New Hope. Indeed, Her Universe is also running a 25% off Star Wars merchandise sale for May 4, though the site does not specify when the sale might end.

Stores like Target have clothes (and shoes!) for fans of all ages; ditto with ThinkGeek. Hot Topic also carries Her Universe items alongside things from its own collection.

For those who want to support smaller-scale artists, we here at Culturess have covered the Elhoffer Design Galactic Royalty Collection. One point we’ve mentioned in the past that we like about this collection is that it’s not obviously branded as Star Wars.

Perhaps the best part, though, in yours truly’s personal experience, is that it’s really hard to find repeated shirts at different places. Some common designs (and lines, like the Her Universe one mentioned above) may cross over, but for the most part, each retailer has something unique and Star Wars-themed. It all depends on the size of clothes you’re looking fore
