Anovos is a high-end prop and costuming company that specializes in producing top-notch replicas of classic outfits from Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek and Star Wars. In the past, the company only carried costumes for women from BSG and Star Trek, but it looks like things are about to change. This month, Anovos released a survey asking customers what kinds of Star Wars outfits they would like to see–especially costumes worn by female characters in the films!

The survey asks for some key info, including gender, size requirements,  and details on the specific outfits from the films (that includes generic uniforms and special costumes) that you would like to see become a reality. There are a lot of outfits listed (Mon Mothma’s dress is even in there), so here’s hoping that some of it actually gets made. After completing the survey, you’ll receive a discount code as a bit of thanks for being involved.

cozday admiral skirt

Want more everyday cosplay items for your wardrobe? Then you might want to take a look at the offerings from Cozday Clothing. The company’s collection is designed by Leetal Platt, and she draws inspiration from pop culture. Cozday has just opened their shop and are accepting pre-orders through October 1st. Plus, everything is on sale.

The Admiral skirt pictured above is just one example of the creative looks available. It was inspired by the jackets worn on Battlestar Galactica, and it’s a chic and different style. The shop also has Admiral jackets, a silk version of the BSG double tanks, and Viper pilot pants and shirts. Besides Galactica, there are also some Princess Leia and Han Solo styles in the store.

See more of their unique designs after the break.

Stormtrooper Pencil Skirt

When you need to dress up your Star Wars apparel and go for something a little more chic, you can turn to Geeky U. They have a few classy options, and this pencil skirt featuring an executive Stormtrooper is one of my favorites. It’s ideal for the business-Star Wars dress code. The skirt comes in standard sizes and ships in just 3-5 business days.

Stormtrooper Klingon Ballerinas

Take the attributes of Stomtroopers and Klingons then make them graceful and nimble. They’re the ultimate villains.

Indeed, there’s mash-up cosplay, and then there’s this combination of Star Trek, Star Wars, and ballet. I can tell the photo was taken at the Hyatt or the Marriott at Dragon Con, and that is exactly the sort of place you would see Klingon Stormtrooper ballerinas. I hope they have a choreographed routine.

pokemon fett

What if Boba Fett was a Pokémon? He’d clearly have to be Wobbuffet and be called Wobba-Fett. It’s never a mash-up I saw coming, but it’s clever and kind of perfect – plus, that helmet is rad. Boba Fett could certainly benefit from Wobbuffet’s psychic abilities. He’d find Han Solo all by himself if he had those.

You can keep warm and toasty and rock one of the most iconic hairdos in the galaxy with this knit Princess Leia beanie from ThinkGeek. The hat is lined with fleece so you don’t have to worry about catching a chill while you’re running around Echo Base on Hoth. Plus, pulling hair buns on is much easier than trying to pin your hair into place.

See what the beanie looks like on a model after the break.

This Chewbacca dog might not pull your arm out of its socket, but he could kill you with cute. The picture was posted by redditor ejara80 whose friend dressed up the little pooch and entered him in a Star Wars costume contest at Petco. He won third place, which seems entirely unjust because he is the cutest ever. Perhaps there was a Jedi mind trick involved in the judging.

Those of you looking to cosplay as Boba Fett at your next convention, or this Halloween, can now build your very own Z-6 jetpack just like he wore in the films. The plans come from Kyle Gilbert who has posted the full how-to over on his blog and also created an instructable. Now you’ll be ready to claim the next bounty Vader sends your way.

This beautiful watch contains sand right from the Tunisian set where the Star Wars Tatooine scenes were filmed. It’s currently a kickstarter which is fully funded with plenty of time to pledge and get your own watch. Each case is made of solid 316L medical-grade steel with Seiko-Epson quartz movements and leather bands. The sand is sealed inside the case and actually moves around as you move your wrist.

Funds from the kickstarter will be used to make the watches and also to help restore the crumbling sets in Tunisia. Some are even at risk of being swallowed by growing sand dunes. This is the second series of watches and it will be the last since the molds are reaching the ends of their lifespans.

These are being made in limited quantities so don’t delay if you want one on your wrist!

See more pictures and the video after the break.
