‘Star Wars’ cos­tumes in spot­light

Bangkok Post - - SUNDAY PEOPLE -

A sketch­book re­veal­ing early cos­tume de­signs for Darth Vader, Luke Sky­walker and other Star Wars char­ac­ters is ex­pected to sell for more than $130,000 (4.2 mil­lion baht) at auc­tion in Lon­don next week.

The coloured pen­cil sketches, drawn by Os­car-win­ning cos­tume de­signer John Mollo be­tween 1975 and 1976, closely re­sem­ble the fi­nal de­signs used in the orig­i­nal 1977 sci-fi film Star Wars: A New Hope by direc­tor Ge­orge Lu­cas that kicked off lu­cra­tive movie and tele­vi­sion fran­chises.
