joysweeper: (What happened?)
[personal profile] joysweeper posting in [community profile] scans_daily
One panel from "The Return of Ben Kenobi", a newspaper comic which was collected in "Classic Star Wars: The Rebel Storm".

I am sharing it because this is, quite possibly, the most... spectacular canon outfit Luke Skywalker has ever worn.




And, okay, three panels from "The Iskalon Effect", since it has Luke and Leia wearing matching low-cut tops.




He has actually been mocked for his lack of fashion sense in canon, I think.

But a lack of fashion sense suits Luke! He's so...Luke-ish and nice and adorkable.

Agreed, and it's not like his sister was always batting 1000 on that front either.

actually? Repeatedly.

There's a reason he went Jedi Master. That's a hard look to screw up.

He's like that farm kid who goes to an urban outfitters store for the first time. And walks out looking like it vomited on him.

Which is actually a nice bit of characterization. The hero of the cosmos can't dress himself.

I just love the idea of imagining fashion-plate Leia's reactions to whatever sartorial nightmare that Luke comes in wearing with his eager puppy-dog look for her approval.

"See Leia, it has running strips of blinky lights down the arms, and they change colour... the guy in the store says the offset the orange pinstripes on the white shorts."

"Luke... the guy in the shop... was he smiling a lot?"

"Well yes, he sure was a happy fellow, friendly too?"

"I can only imagine."

ANH Luke, maybe. Post-ROTJ Luke would sense the guy's duplicity but be a good sport and buy the shirt anyway just to keep the dark side that much further at bay.

Oh definitely, even by the time of Empire, he's not the same naive farm kid any more.

The positioning of that rifle and the shadow only make that thing look even more like a rejected Quidditch uniform.

I wouldn't be too sure about "rejected," honestly. Some of those uniforms are pretty darn gaudy. The Wimbourne Wasps are yellow and black stripes ... horizontally.

(I know this because I happen to be rereading GoF right now, I'm not THAT avid a fan.)

Tee hee hee. Luke makes such adorably horrible fashion choices. I'm sure this is why he went with the all black Jedi uniform. Even he can't mess that up. I think. But really, I kind of like the idea that he can save the galaxy, but he can't dress himself in anything besides pretty much a single solid neutral or maybe a uniform without looking like a rainbow threw up on him.

He may be wearing Jedi Master black on the outside, but his underoos are probably gold spangly boxers with a lilac fringe...

One wonders how he manages to have so many chicks after him all the time...is it a "despite" or a "because" thing?

Little of lightsabre A, little of lightsabre B I'd say.

He's got a lot going for him in terms of looks, good-naturedness, heroic reputation, and a deal of passion to his life too. But once you've met him "off duty", the fact he's a hopeless dresser means he's not TOO perfect, and has a combination of a human quirkiness and a slightly naive and adorable dorkyness that would make a very winning combination....

Not that I have a thing for blonds of course.

Gold spangly boxers with a lilac fringe? That tame? Really? I was thinking boxer briefs. Orange and purple plaid. With black lace trim and silver beadwork. The salesbeing at the store said they're all the rage on Corescant, you know.

I love the idea of Luke having no sartorial sense. It's one of the characteristics I love most about Dick Grayson, for instance. When he's attending a charity function as a respresentative of the Wayne family, he's dressed fashionably, but given his own choices, he's more of a sparkly and glittery kind of circus guy. ;)

Aw, when you said Luke and Leia were wearing matching tops, I was hoping for something a little more interesting than a fairly functional tank top.

Well, by contemporary standards that is rather low-cut for a guy's tank top. It's something, right?

But now I'm imagining some nice lacy trim...

Aw, you guys, I LIKE the stripey Jedi robe look. It's quite striking...and I mean, it sucks as camo on that big ol' rock but in the long grass it would work like a zebra!

It kind of makes him look like a bumble bee. I'd like it much better if it was a different color combination. Blue and green, with a cream shirt instead of red, perhaps. But I do love the idea of it functioning as camo!
