One of the kidnappers had drawn his blaster and was lining it up on a badly dressed and clearly insane figure that had appeared from nowhere and was running straight at him. -Mara Jade, observing Luke, whose idea of a disguise was gray trousers, a blue tunic, a yellow sash, and a poncho with a hood.

Luke Skywalker shouldn't be allowed to dress himself. I've shown a little of that before but, well... here's more, gleaned from a number of comics.

Recall that he sees nothing wrong with this.

Or with this.

But there are more. Oh, so many more.

Nothing says "I'm a Jedi" like an exposed navel and a purple vest, amiright?

Or pants and turtleneck that are almost matching shades of orange.

This is supposedly a "miner's uniform".

At least he wears it well.

I... I don't even know. Perhaps he is a bee.

There's a comic where, on a planet of lizard people, he has to dress as a knight and joust. ...In purple armor.

This is what he picks as formalwear.

And no one told him not to wear absurdly tight purple pants to his own treason trial, I see.

Admittedly, these next ones are likely colorist errors., forgetting to color in his flight suit.

And the glittery sweatshirt is probably an attempt at texture.

...which falls flat.

As you can see, that first panel has a sort of tunic with a hood and full sleeves, but the second has a turtleneck. Meaning Luke has at least two glittery dull red articles of clothing. And what is up with his pants?

Women seem to like it, though!

Or maybe she's colorblind. That would explain this. (A gradient turtleneck. Oh yes.)

She apparently takes away his sparkly and gradient turtlenecks by the next adventure, giving him a mesh shirt.

Really. It continues to look like that.

But there's really no excuse for the pink turtleneck.

Just soak it in.

I'm surprised that you didn't mention the fishnet tank-top.

I feel compelled to post the Tara Strong, Billy West, John DiMaggio panel reading of Star Wars...

So here you all go, those who have not basked in its glory,

I only got ONE of my friends to embrace the awesomeness of that (there are several long lulls, so it's hard to make 'em watch it all the way through).

I think, despite the rest of the assembled cast's massive talent, that I love Tracy Morgan Kenobi most of all.

"Remember, pony wears the saddle" is a close second for Best Improv. God bless you, Tara Strong.

-Billy West calling out several of the times when humor fell flat "I'm sorry, sir, but when I went to school, I was taught that comedy had a beginning, a middle, and an end..."
- John D (as Bender) following along perfectly with Porky Pig's stuttering Ben Kenobi Jedi Mind Trick
- The Sopranos suddenly dropping in to the Star Wars universe.

I liked Zoidberg as Luke and Aquaman as Uncle Ben, as well as the aforementioned Bender as a stormtrooper and Twilight Sparkle as Han and Tony Soprano as Greedo bits.

"You talk how you wanna talk, I talk this way because listen."

"That's none of your cocern- What the hell is 'cocern'? There's an N there I missed. Hello, N."

And how can we forget John reminding people of the comedy gold of Paul Lynde? Now in my head, I'll be remembering that scene in place of the actual one. "Ow... I'm right-handed... Whyyyy? Fine. I'll just pick up my arm and leave then... But that's incredibly ruuuuuude. You people."

I really loved Rob Paulsen's Walken!Solo as well.

there's also the last issue, when Luke is suddenly Rambo Skywalker.

Dunno what you guys are going on about, I just love every single one of this! Especially the glitter, and the mesh. He's only missing some higher boots, and more leather.

I did ask, on one occasion, that Sonny Strait do me a sketchcard of the infamous Return of the Jedi scene, with Luke instead of Leia in something approximating the slave gear. I was picturing something vaguely zardozish, a short cut waistcoat and trunks perhaps, what I got though.... scared even ME!

It's not the same without Jabba's expression, but hey, go for it. Just be sure to give due credit to Sonny Strait, the artist in question.

Unfortunately adding Jabba would make Luke too small in the icon, and I wouldn't be able to glare at his glorious bra.

Far from me to not give the artist credit! After all I hope he draws more like this :) I added an Author=Sonny Strait field in the file's metadata (JPEG EXIF), renamed it to luke_by_sonny_strait, and named him in the icon description; is it enough?

May I say, as someone who had a major crush on Luke Skywalker during my formative years (and when he was very new on the scene too), I will (as also in the case of Mr Grayson) excuse most if not all sartorial excesses. I doubt if it was a deliberate move, but I rather like the idea that the dirt poor farm kid from Tattooine really has NO sense of style beyond what he thinks looks fun and colourful, and if that's embarrassing to others, well sod them! You give the guy who blew up the Death Star and is single handled trying to restore the Jedi Order (because the other remaining Jedi did bugger all about it) a bit of leeway fashionwise.

And no one told him not to wear absurdly tight purple pants to his own treason trial, I see.

They look grey with a vague hint of purple to me, and if anyone had told him NOT to wear tight trousers I'd probably slap them upside the head; Let the cute li'l Jedi wear what he likes!

And the hair was gorgeous, full and fluffy and something to sink your fingers into and stroke and... ahem, sorry flashbacking somethng chronic just then!

So, in short, stop critiquing my little moisture farmers fashion sense and GET OFF MY LAWN ye darn whippernsappers!

I like this idea as well, even if it is an impression that is given unintentionally. It makes sense for him to have no sense of style - I don't think they even made clothes in bright colors out in the boonies of Tatooine, so no wonder he'd pounce on them.

I like the idea that certain characters have no sense of style, or more accurately, have their own unique style that may not be conventional. ;) Not everyone can be a fashionista.

I guess I'm missing how any of this is outlandish as part of the SW-verse. Maybe it's just that I was reading this stuff way before I was reading superhero comics. None of it bothers me.

Besides, this critique is all over the place. Don't wear plain black but don't wear glitter either. So it's all either too garish or too plain? Don't wear turtlenecks but don't show your navel either. So it all either shows too much figure/skin or not enough. Even shitty fashion mags will throw in a couple of "Dos" along with all their "Don'ts" every season.

If I want my heroes in bowler hats and formal wear, I'll cue up an Avengers rerun. But that ain't what I read/watch SW for.

Alot of these outfits aren't terrible, it's just 'lolcomics colors'. The first one looks like pretty reasonable desert attire.
