Look over these classic Star Wars characters and use the links to get the exact outfits for yourself. Or you can use these collages as inspiration while you shop in thrift stores or in your own closet.

To make your look a little more fashionable, add a nice cape coat in tan or brown! You can also purchase actual Jedi robes in Galaxy’s Edge.

The great thing about this outfit is that it’s essentially the Jedi look but different color options from the online store. Great for a bestie duo look!

Wouldn’t you know it – they don’t really make dresses with hoods on them. Weird, I know. So you have to get a little creative for this one!

You could also swap this belt out for a garter holster belt to hold your blaster!

Do you like Luke, or do you just like staying cool during the hot days in the parks? The galaxy may never know.

Yes I am reusing the same pants from the Luke look. Why? Because doubling up on looks will really help you to Disney Bound on a budget!

If the cape looks familiar, it’s because it’s the same one used for the Dark Side Sith bound. But Darth Vader is easy – just wear all black with some hints of silver!

Din Djarin Mandalorian Disney Bound

Mando is a little more difficult to make a simple Disney Bound for. But you can always add more accessories if needed. Also I would recommend wearing a cami under the silver tank.

A lot of these Star Wars Disney Bounds can also be accessorized with Loungeflys for a finishing touch. I recommend checking out 707 Street as they have tons of exclusive Loungefly backpacks and wallets. Use the code THANKYOU23 to get 10% off of your order of $150+ on 707 Street too!

Because Disney Bounding can tend to be an expensive hobby, I try to find different ways to Disney Bound on a budget. Sometimes even just using one unique item can help you Disney Bound for multiple characters! Most of the outfits that I make for any Disney Bound, especially for Star Wars outfits, always leads me to the thrift store. But additional resources can be used. I like using Shein because it offers a large catalog of items making it very easy to find exactly what you envision.

However, your biggest resource to start will always be your closet! get creative with the items that you already own. Who knows – you may already have a complete look waiting for you to take to Batuu.

Unleashing the Force: An Epic Review of ‘The Empire Strips Back’

This should go without saying – if you’re a Star Wars fan then you need to see The Empire Strips Back. But that’s probably why you’re even reading this right now! Recently I saw this burlesque parody show in San Diego before it moved on to Chicago and New York. Now let’s talk details without mentioning spoilers.

Feeling super sexy before the show starts

Now this entire show seems like it was the brain child of someone who loved Slave Leia and wanted everyone in the movie to be that incredibly sexy. This epic burlesque performance takes the iconic Star Wars franchise and gives it a sexy, comedic twist. From stormtroopers to Darth Vader himself, the beloved characters of the Star Wars universe are all here, shedding their outer layers for your viewing pleasure.

Empire Strips Back San Diego

Their San Diego pop-up show took place in what was essentially a large warehouse in downtown. I thought it would be in a theater, but I liked how it wasn’t as big as that. However the downside of it not being in a theater is that the seating made it very difficult to see. The seating stands that they had were not very slanted. So sitting behind even someone close to the same height as you was still an obstacle.

Every scene is about 3 minutes long and in between sets, Lando Calrissian’s “nephew” acts as the MC. At first, I didn’t like that every song was then stopped by the MC, but I came to like it. Lando’s “nephew” did a fantastic job and was very funny. I also appreciated that they laid down rules for the audience at the beginning. They encouraged the audience to cheer and clap, but to remain respectful. It’s a burlesque show after all – not a strip show. They did not want people screaming at the dancers to “take their clothes off” or to show them anything extra.

The performance

The performers are all incredibly talented and manage to combine dance, humor, and sensuality into one seamless performance. You’ll often see the male characters from the movie portrayed as female dancers. And the musical selection falls more in pop music than it does music from the movie. For example, the first scene was set to “Dirty” by Christina Aguilera.

Now you think Slave Leia would have been the star of the Empire Strips Back, but that wasn’t the case. Because I expected Slave Leia, I was more shocked and wowed by all the other characters that were put through the burlesque filter. Every character was portrayed with precision and panache. And the costumes! WOW! The costumes were stunning, with intricate details and strategically placed cutouts that leave just enough to the imagination.

I will keep the rest of my opinions to myself because I don’t want to give too much away. So I will leave it at this. If you’re a Star Wars fan, a lover of burlesque, or just looking for a unique night out, The Empire Strips Back is not to be missed. The show is a perfect blend of nostalgia, humor, and sex appeal that will leave you feeling like you’ve seen something truly special. Don’t wait – grab your tickets now to this burlesque Star Wars parody and join the rebellion against boring entertainment!
