Hello Nikon Fans Everywhere!!!
Hello Nikon fans, I hope all of you are doing well! I recently had the opportunity of visiting the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg Florida, to see the Star Wars Power of the Costume event that’s going on right now. It was absolutely stunning, they had characters costumes such as Darth Sidious, Darth Vader, Yoda, Padme, Luke Skywalker, Anakin Skywalker, and many, many more!
The Darth Vader costume they had on display, was the one that Hayden Christensen wore in Revenge of the Sith, so it as pretty cool to be so close to that one for sure. They had the three droids, BB8, R2-D2, and C3P0 as well, it was pretty cool to see the concept art on their costumes, and to see the parts of the costumes they used too. One thing I didn’t know, was that R2-D2’s costume, who was played by Kenny Baker, well Kenny was inside the R2 unit during the movies, but his legs were down each side of R2-D2.
It was pretty much like sitting on a bicycle for Kenny Baker while being inside the R2-D2 costume, I knew that Kenny and even Jimmy Vee is inside the R2 unit, but seeing the concept art of leg placement and the whole “planning period” before they built the R2 unit was very interesting to me!
So, as you walk through this Museum, looking at the wickedly awesome Star Wars Costumes that are all out on display, you make your way around a corner and BAM, here lies this huge display of Jedi fighting a Sith! Darth Maul is in the center, Mace Windu (played by Samuel L. Jackson), Qui-Gon Jinn (played by Liam Neeson), Obi-Wan Kenobi (played by Ewan McGregor), and one other Jedi surrounded Darth Maul, and they had lightsabers that lit up too!
Not to mention, Darth Sidious was on display off to the side of this massive display as well! My fiancé took a lot of photos with her Nikon Coolpix P900 and I can’t wait to share them with you all. So without further ado, here are the photos she took with her Nikon Digital Camera, enjoy!
Another fun fact about one of Padme’s costumes, is that there were about 15-20 gold rope necklaces that were used as part of the costume! I took photos with my IPhone, if you’d like to compare, you will find those photos here at Star-Wars-Everything.com!
