    Jan 13, 2015, 4:21 AM - Star wars EMP costume museum! #1

    Hey fellow members I'm gonna be straight and simple to the point. There will be boba fett armor! And I will take a lot of pictures so really I will be going to the museum in Seattle and wanted to know, are there anything you want specifically photographed? Details closeups and what not? Its going to be return of the jedi armor but I am so psyched to see it in real person! Feel free to ask me to take pics of certain things, I want to donate as much as I can to this forum.

    How did I not hear about this? Thanks for posting. I think a Seattle road trip is in order. It's only 3 hours away.

    I should also ask flash or no flash? Its matter of preference but still figured I'd ask.

    There are multiple locations there isn't one closer to you?

    I may be wrong about the first thing lol.

    It's a traveling show...it's in Seattle right now. And I'm going to Korea for a year. It's not going there unfortunately.

    Well that explains that. Hopefully they take it to Kansas City or Minneapolis... Des Moines would be better, but that'll never happen.

    I did a little digging. There are actually two traveling Star Wars exhibits. The one starting in Seattle at the end of January is "The Power of Costume: Rebel, Jedi, Princess, Queen: A behind-the-scenes look at some of the most iconic costumes in film history". No other venues or dates are listed.

    The other is "Star Wars Identities". It is currently in Lyon France. Also no other venues or dates are listed, but there are slots with "Coming Soon".

    I might be going to Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle, so I could stop by the exhibit and do some snaps.

    I also hope it comes to the Midwest. Kansas city would be perfect.

    Is it the real thing? When "Science Meets Imagination" came to the twin cities, some of the props were replicas. I know a Vader sabre was a licensed prop. A friend went to The Music of Star Wars and the Boba Fett on display was not screen used. I think it was a Don Post.

    After a little digging this will be on tour for a while going to an additional 11 cities. The cities and the cost for the exhibit are listed below at the link

    http://www.sites.si.edu/starwarsandthepowerofcostume/

    You could host this exhibit for the low cost of only 400k for 5 months, but at least you get "Professionally packed crates and handling instructions."

    And they think this is the boba fett outfit used in RoTJ



    On an interesting note...this photo is not in the Boba Fett Second Prototype photo collection.

    Damn, maybe Gino can hook the community up with some behind the scene pictures. Like not behind glass, no flash, etc.
