Star Wars Boys Fancy Dress Accessories
It is amazing to think that Star Wars first hit the big screens in 1977. That’s 40 years ago and the franchise is as popular as ever these days. There are millions of young fans whose parents hadn’t even been born when the first film was released. If your kids are amongst that number then a kids’ Star Wars Fancy Dress Costume will have to make its way onto your shopping list. If it isn’t there already!
If you do happen to need a Star Wars costume then you are in the right place. The question is, which costume is the coolest in the galaxy? Could it be Darth Vader or is Darth Maul a better choice? Naturally we have both here at Luvyababses but we also offer great options for budding Jedi, Death Troopers and Stormtroopers. Alternatively, check out our amazing Captain Phasma, Finn and Yoda outfits.
We’re betting that your kids will recognise all of those great characters instantly. But what about you? Are you a fan or don’t you know your Ewoks from Jabba the Hutt?
A Brief History of The Stars Wars Franchise
The first Star Wars movie was released June 1977 but was actually episode four in a series of six. Episode five, The Empire Strikes Back and Episode six, The return of the Jedi were released in 1980 and 1983 respectively. Episode one didn’t hit the screens until 1999 and we have all just been treated to episode eight! Confused? We haven’t mentioned the spin-offs yet, so perhaps we should forget about those!
The stories take place in a distant and unnamed fictional galaxy at some point in the ancient past. It is a time when many species of aliens co-exist. Humans own droids which help them in their daily routines and space travel is common. The galaxy features a mystical element called "the Force". The two warring factions in the stories use the Force in different ways. Jedi harness the light side of the Force and the Sith use the dark side of the Force.
The movies are fast moving adventure stories packed with intrigue, thrills, battles and a raft of unique characters.
