If you were a fan of Star Wars: Force Awakens and let’s face it YOU WERE, you will definitely want to see the new bonus feature released on iTunes called “Dressing the Galaxy.”
“Dressing the Galaxy” is available as an iTunes Extras Exclusive for fans who buy or own Star Wars: The Force Awakens on iTunes! Fans will get the whole story of how Rey got her look and learn more about their favorite character’s costumes.
Costume designer Michael Kaplan and his team explains how many different elements came together in creating the look for Rey.
“We knew she was going to be in a world of men doing things like climbing and dealing with rocket parts and living this Spartan life, so we had to make her practical, but we also wanted a glimmer of femininity about her,” says Kaplan. “I also knew there were going to be sandstorms and dust, so I wanted the character to be in light colors. It also felt right for her emotionally and for the desert. It also felt very Star Wars especially when you look back at Luke and Leia.”
He went on to explain how everything was put into her costume for a reason.
“We eventually gave her a wrap, which could protect her face against dust storms […] it gives her a very beautiful image when all the pieces are put together. Rey wears the costume throughout the film, although we had 25 copies made and about 12 pairs of boots.”
