Movies have a way of taking us beyond our Earthly existence to another world. For fans of the movie franchise Star Wars, this world is one of a far away galaxy with strange creatures fighting against an evil empire. In the movie we find ourselves drawn into the battle and rooting for the underdog.
Star Wars entered theatres in May 1977 as a rather small budget film. It would go on to break the bank. Although it was first to be released, the director George Lucas places Star Wars as the fourth instalment in the story, a story which nearly forty years later we are still waiting to see completed.
*Hire only available in Brisbane.
May Fourth is known as Star Wars Day, a non-official holiday created to celebrate the enormous influence that the Star Wars movie franchise has had on world culture. Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher burnt the day into the brains of Star Wars fans when a congratulatory note read "May the Fourth be with you, Maggie," after she secured the position of Prime Minister in England. This was back on May 4, 1979. The phrase stuck, and decades later Canada sealed the date by holding a film festival and celebration of the film on May 4 2011.
We have a huge selection of Star Wars costumes for Star Wars Day, the widest on the continent. You can buy continent wide or rent in the Brisbane area. From classic characters like the feisty but beautiful Princess Leia and the "space-smart" bounty hunter Hans Solo to characters from the newer series like Darth Maul and Jar Jar Binks, we have something for everyone.
What would Star Wars Day be without accessories to go along with your chosen look? After all, Star Wars Day is all about leaving our world behind for the Star Wars universe. We have Darth Vader gloves, Chewbacca and Yoda hand accessories and masks to add authenticity to especially complex costumes. Finally, what would Star Wars be without the famed lightsabers? We have Darth Vader and Anakin Skywalker light sabers so you can choose the side you wish to join. Will you join the light or do you choose to allow the dark side to take control? The choice is yours. Just choose before May 4th. May the 4th Be With you!
