Star Wars And The Power of Costume Exhibit In New York City

As we roll into spring and summer, we here at FANgirl wanted to remind fans of the incredible Star Wars experience available for them at Discovery Times Square. The Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service teamed up with Lucas Museum of Narrative Art to create Star Wars and the Power of Costume. In addition to prequel trilogy and original trilogy costumes, there are seven items from The Force Awakens. Check out our gallery below for a sneak peek. For The Force Awakens cosplayers we have created a research album on our Facebook page FANgirl Zone. FANgirl is happy to offer our readers an opportunity to save $5 on tickets. Use the linkable image below.
