Star Wars Marathon | The Long Center for the Performing Arts

Let Your Nerd Flag Fly Because Star Wars Marathon is Coming!

…in costume, of course!

With the upcoming—limited release!—STAR WARS MARATHON, we thought we’d help you all out with a brief rundown on the best way to dress up as one of your favorite characters from these films. Trust us—there are A LOT of interpretations of these costumes, from best dressed to, well. . . dressed on a budget. We hope this helps you prepare to protect the galaxy from the Galactic Empire by joining the rebel alliance or by serving as a Stormtrooper on the dark side. Take your pick!

*Please help us keep the galaxy safe—and your costumes as complete as possible—by understanding that there are a few restrictions regarding crucial pieces of your outfit. We ask that you leave all realistic toy weapons at home, including wooden or metal objects, or anything with sharp edges. However, you can get as creative as you’d like with nerf, air blow-up, or Styrofoam toy weapons!

It is a period of civil war…

The Classic.
