DENVER - The creative process that brought us some of the most iconic characters in film history is at the center of a unique new exhibit opening this weekend at the Denver Art Museum.

'Star Wars and the Power of Costume' opens Sunday.

It features more than 70 of the original costumes, designed for the seven films of the Star Wars series.

Among them is Queen Amidala's lavish gowns, the uniforms of X-Wing Pilots and Storm Troopers, Chewbacca and Han Solo, C-3PO and R2-D2, Darth Maul and Darth Vader.

The exhibition explains what inspired many of the costumes and showcases the artistry of each piece.

"Just the level of detail on these costumes,” Stefania Van Dyke said, an Interpretive Specialist at the Denver Art Museum. “I mean, there on, some of them are on film for like only for a few seconds, and they're absolutely amazing."

Organizers think this exhibit will attract visitors that would have otherwise not considered going to an art museum.

The exhibit runs through April 2.
