Smithsonian Costume Exhibit Coming 2015 announced a new Star Wars costume exhibit at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.. The exhibit covers all of the films to date but it seems from the announcement there will be quite a bit of emphasis on Padme Amidala’s costume collection.

There’s no date for opening yet but Steve Sansweet posted that it will open “early next year.” Gee, this might necessitate a trip back East. For those of you who live in the D.C./Baltimore metro region, find out now about volunteering opportunities. I volunteered at the Smithsonian’s Star Wars: Magic Of Myth exhibit 1997-1999 and it was a blast! Plus, I got a discount in the gift shop. That’s very important ;).

Update: The show opens 1/31/15 at the EMP Museum in SEATTLE. Tix are on sale in January.
