It's International Star Wars Day today, which is a “thing”, apparently. And, in true Dubai-style, we have to celebrate. There's even a special night at Zinc in the Crowne Plaza with prizes for the best costumes. 
So, to help you out, here are three stores offering you the chance to play Luke, Han, Leia or Darth, whether you’re going to a party or not.
Mystique Costumes
Where: Beach Centre, Jumeirah
You can get full Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader gear here (you pick the side), complete with light-sabers and Vader-masks. It will cost you, though. Go big or go home, right?
Contact: +9714 349 4719 or
Mr Ben’s Costume Closet
Where: Al Ghazal Mall  (Al Wasl/2nd December Street)
You can rent a full Vader costume for AED400 or buy a helmet and cloak for AED280 and AED150 respectively. For the ladies, there is a Princess Leia look (hair included) available for rent at AED175 and if you’re feeling more adventurous, you can buy the gold slave bikini for AED380. 
Contact: +9714 346 3422 or
Party Centre
For the hard-core fanboys and girls, there’s  a greater variety of costumes available here including Queen Amidala, Darth Maul, Anakin Skywalker and a standard Jedi. For the ones who want to celebrate at home (or have kids that love Star Wars), there are party accessories.
