Star Wars costumes at the science museum

We spent Sunday afternoon at the Fort Worth science museum again to help with the Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination exhibit. I actually remembered to bring our camera this time, so I'll be posting a lot of pictures today. LucasFilm lent the museum a lot of the costumes and props from the movies, so everything you see was actually in the Star Wars films.

This is my favorite picture. Ruf was armored up and looking at a stormtrooper costume behind glass:

Han Solo and Chewbacca:

Princess Leia, R2-D2, and C-3PO:

A Jawa:

Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi (Hayden Christensen is MUCH taller than Ewan McGregor!):

Padme Amidala:

Snowtrooper (this costume totally creeps me out because it looks a little too KKK):

Tusken Raiders:

Darth Vader:

Vader's Helmet taken apart:

Young Anakin:

Yoda (okay, it's a puppet, not a costume, but it seemed to fit here):

When I was little, I thought snowtroopers looked stupid, running around in their dresses or whatever. Actually, I think they still do look sort of stupid. My wife thought they were scary when she was little. Must be a girl thing or something ;)
