Star Wars Costume Evolution: Stormtroopers

Thanks to Halloween Costumes, we have a fun Star Wars infographic that offers us a look at the evolution of the Stormtroopers costume design. Over the years we've seen several different designs for them, and here they all are conveniently placed for you to look at and perhaps learn a few things you might not have known about them.

Here's the note that came along with the infographic:
When George Lucas conceived of Star Wars, he created an industry -- costumes and animatronics, special effects and digital sound, you name it! Many of the things we take for granted in movies today exists because of Lucas, LucasArts, Skywalker Sound, and Industrial Light & Magic.

Nobody does iconic looks like George Lucas and his creative team, and next to Darth Vader himself, the Stormtroopers have some of the most noticeable and recognizable costumes in the Star Wars universe. While the Stormtrooper and clone trooper armors haven't changed much in their look since the Clone Wars, their helmets have undergone the most drastic changes and had the most amazing variations throughout their use. From the onset of the Clone Wars to 2015's Episode VII: The Force Awakens, check out how the Stormtrooper costume has changed in it's nearly 50-year history!
