ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
From the people who brought you the hairless Chewbacca costume, a line of "sexy Star Wars" costumes that showcase the broadmindedness and dubious taste of Disney/Lucas licensing department.
Sexy Star Wars
Their Sexy Wonder Woman Costume and Sexy Adult Princess Leia Slave Costume are actually substantially less racy than the real things.
Yes, but they make up for it with the “sexy Boba Fett”. How many bounty hunters wear miniskirts?
It’s conceivable that Jinx might wear a miniskirt from time to time, though I don’t think she does in the series and it would probably be a little out of character.
Mmmm. Sexy slave Leiao.
Lucasfilm still has a licensing department? I thought Disney fired everyone. These look more like costumes the Mouse would rubber stamp.
Disney bought Lucasfilm FOR the licensing department. They appear to be rapidly shedding everything else.
That is a very photoshopped torso.
Yeah. That really, really ain’t right.
O ye of little faith.
But how do you find their lack of faith?
The one I’m curious about is Kimono Fuedal Darth Vader, but there’s no picture to tell me what that might mean. Would it go with a light-ktaana?
The belt for the skirt is sitting just above the hips, and then with the hips akimbo due to the stance, it’s hard to see the true body line.
It’s a long torso, but not impossible.
It isn’t the length of the torso, it’s the smoothness of the sides and the artificial gradation of shading on the chest. This shop is so bad it looks like I did it.
Also, having seen many shops in my time and the pixels. Whatever.
Nothing’s sexier than a nice, warm winter hat.
It immediately made me think of Charlize Theron in Arrested Development.
I got yer sexy Star Wars costume…RIGHT HERE!
Turn to the darkside…. uuh okay!
Is that a lightphallus?
Inflatable lightsaber so the kiddies can’t poke their eyes out.
Ah, well I’m actually a little glad to learn that Disney has not yet licensed Star Wars IP to the sex toy industry.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that…
…..or is she just glad to see you?
Does crappy photoshopping come with the costume?
My eyes really dislike these photos. The entire chewie from yesterday, and parts of this costume, look entirely like a digital rendering. Makes me wonder if the product will actually look like the advertisement or not. I’m guessing no.
“Luke, I’m your father.”
“Uhhh, I think this just got really weird.”
Don’t get me wrong: I love some sexy Star Wars cosplayers but why aren’t there cool girls Jedi costumes? There are tons of cool female Jedi.
They sell two different female jedi (and one sith) costumes. I find these interesting because they’re not what you’d normally consider a “sexy costume”; they’re reasonably accurate representations of the film characters… which do happen to be relatively sexy, but that’s beside the point. One of them has a floor-length skirt – admittedly that one doesn’t have “sexy” in the title like the others, though it is in the “Sexy Halloween” category.
Where’s the sexy male costumes? Am I resigned to dressing in a full length incredibly unsexy jedi robe for the rest of my life?!?!
Not saying it would work on me or any woman of my acquaintance, but you never know.
Well, seeing as it’s the Star Wars universe, your only choices for sexy men are Han Solo or Lando Calrissian.
Please, no sexy Ugnaughts. Thank you.
The day the Sexy Sarlacc costume debuts is the day I burn my premiere issue of Bantha Tracks.
wow – they do Star wars dog costumes too… no idea if they are sexy.
The sexy sith one features the chef hat I will need in order to bake some Chuthulu cupcakes.
Once again, no love for us Hutt fetishists.
I’m still waiting for the “sexy Jabba the Hutt” outfit.
Get some ideas here: http://cdn02.cdnwp.thefrisky.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/11/jabba-the-hutt-body-425×287.jpg
Unless they’re as photoshopped as the rest, the socks are actually quite nice. Shame to have to consign the rest of the outfit to the scrap basket, though…
I wonder if the licensing for this was made before or after the buy-out. I can imagine Lucas just allowing lots of licensing before selling to Disney, then letting them figure out what to do with all the different odd or weird tangential products.
“Coming Soon”, indeed.
The “sexy” costumes are exactly the same as their costumes for girls.
