Bespin Security Guard Costume
This is a Bespin Security Guard costume used in filming The Empire Strikes Back. The Bespin Guard costumes were all hand-sewn and custom-made for each actor, and not taken from off the shelf clothes. This has wonderful detailed embroidery along the edges. The black lines separating the blue and burgundy cuffs were added later as the color underneath was originally gold and later replaced either by fabric or gaffer's tape to cover up the gold color, presumably a late change in the detail for the costume design.
