    In descending order of importance for me, here are my hopes for what the Jedi wear:

    1. Anything but "Tatooine settler" robes. The PT made it such that everyone on Tatooine in Ep IV looked like a Jedi, even that weird looking alien who bought Luke's speeder. Also, the PT Jedi cloaks were too ridiculously large.

    2. Something new to the films. Perhaps something like the outfits in SWTOR, which combine more intricate looking robes with pieces of armour. They look more like "knights" than monks. Although, they do go a little overboard with the armour in some cases.

    3.Something like Luke's outfit in ROTJ. It's how I imagined the Jedi to appear for 16 years after 1983. His cloak was the perfect size and shape, and the black outfit was simple, yet dignified.

    I would totally dig some armor mixed in. Just as long as they don't look like the space Marines from warhammer 40K.

    Every single character will wear the Slave Leia Outfit. Thus it has been decreed.

    I'm an English major and Writing minor, and I'm slowly losing brain cells from looking at this title. I also have to be extra careful when I'm typing because spell check is not working.

    I'm hoping at least one person does, Darth Hammer or whoever.

    Darth Vaderetta. Goes well with my theory that Palpatine has an evil twin sister named Palpatinna.

    While not quite as overt, one of the wedding dresses offered to Mara in Union did look very Vaderish- due to a rise in popularity of "Imperial chic" after the peace treaty. It was rejected: "The bride doesn't want to look like the father of the groom."

    Isn't this Eddie Izzard's costume for his Death Star cafeteria routine?

    By the way, if you haven't seen it, check out Phill Jupitus' routine about TPM, where he suggests that Obi-Wan Kenobi should've been played by Eddie Izzard:

    The costumes in the PT and OT are not that different.

    The PT concentrates on the "civilised" part of society - the royalty, politicians and Jedi.

    The OT concentrates on the outsiders - Tattoine and the Rebels.

    But if you watch carefully you see both styles in the movies - the citizens of Naboo and the Coruscant residents during the Zam Wessil chase wear OT style clothes and Mon Mothma and Palpatine's entourage wear PT style robes.

    I think the ST will have a mix like we see in TCW - not as basic as the OT and not as aristocratic as the PT.

    I, too, hope Trisha Biggar is brought back.

    Or someone with a great imagination.

    The costumes of the ST need to be just as outstanding as the the previous trilogies.

    I think the last thing any of us want are the costumes of the Battlestar Galactica remake or Caprica.

    I would have to disagree. The PT had some serious budget for costumes. And some serious talent making some BeAuTiFuL costumes.

    The OT, had like 55 military uniforms, 55 peasant garbs; a big white sheet, and a roll of duck tape. (I'm pretty sure Harison Ford wore his own clothes, just like Aunt Beru did)

    I would love to see the costume dept from the PT tackle an all new style for the ST.

    Skin tight white lycra and at least one disco scene with one of those sparkly rope things a la Buck Rogers In The 25th Century

    For Jedi: I loved in Union how they were all dressed traditionally but with a little more color. I'm hoping for something like that with a mix of something we haven't seen.

    I'd like to see more variation than the basic brown and tan peasant Jedi garb of the PT. Make them sleeker and more "modern". Luke's outfit from ROTJ would be a good starting point. The Jedi absolutely still need to wear robes, and I think a lot of black and darker colors would be good. I'd love to see all different colors of lightsabers... orange, yellow, green, blue, turquoise, purple... still reserve the red for Sith though. I also feel like the long Padawan braid could be replaced by something else.

    I disagree with a couple things. I don't want to see a rainbow of lightsabers. I thought it was really cool and special that Mace Windu had a rare pruple lightsaber. Also, I didn't mind the Jedi braid. Too much change is a bad thing and IF Luke resurrects the Jedi Order and gets married and has kids at least give the Padawans crew cuts, short tails and braids dammit! :p
