Anakin Skywalker (Episode III)

 

CHARACTER DESCRIPTION

Anakin Skywalker - was a Force-sensitive Human male who served the Galactic Republic as a Jedi Knight and later served the Galactic Empire as the Sith Lord Darth Vader. Born to the slave Shmi Skywalker in 41.9 BBY, Anakin was conceived by midi-chlorians, the symbiotic organisms that allowed individuals to touch the Force, and he and his mother were brought to the desert planet of Tatooine to be the slaves of Gardulla the Hutt.

They soon ended up as the property of the Toydarian Watto, and Skywalker exhibited exceptional piloting skills and a reputation for being able to build and repair anything even at a young age. In 32 BBY, Skywalker encountered the Jedi Qui-Gon Jinn and Padmé Amidala, and he helped them secure the parts they needed for their starship by winning the Boonta Eve Classic podracing event—only to learn that he had also won his freedom in doing so.

  • The end of the left sleeve opening should be at least 1.5 times the width of the hand when spread out (measuring from tip of thumb to tip of pinky finger)
  • The right sleeve can be shortened and cuffed in order to fit into the glove without being bunched
  • The OT should be made such that there is a skirt that hangs below the obi and which is attached with a seam to the upper portion of the OT, in order to give a full drape to the lower portion (rather than being form fitting)

PLEASE NOTE: Measurements are given in this costume standard. These measurements are based on an individual being approximately the same size as the actor portraying this character. As is always the case, the Rebel Legion is far more concerned about a costume fitting the wearer and being proportional than with actual measurements. While for some, these measurements will be accurate. For others, some adjustments would be required to have the costume appear proportional to a given body type.
