A short time ago, in a galaxy that’s super duper close, a bunch of nerds and dummies decided to commit all sorts of crimes while dressed like characters from one of the most iconic films ever, Star Wars. Though some of these criminals probably think they can ACTUALLY use the Force, a few of the people who committed these Star Wars crimes probably just needed a quick disguise before they robbed a bank. It definitely says something for a fandom when Darth Vader overtakes the classic bandit mask with sketchy dudes who just want some quick cash. Check out these crimes by people dressed in Star Wars costumes and remember to think twice the next time you see an Imperial stormtrooper outside of a sci-fi convention.
You wouldn’t expect it, but the crimes committed by people dressed as Star Wars characters are as varied as the scoundrels you’ll find in the Mos Eisley Cantina. From petty criminals to downright creeps, a lot of people have used Star Wars get ups to aid them in their life of crime. It makes sense that most of the criminals on this list would dress as members of the Empire, and ne’er do well bounty hunters, but don’t worry! A man dressed as Chewbacca also found a way to get up to no good.Read all about these people who broke the law dressed up as Star Wars characters and then leave a comment about all the crazy stuff you’ve done while dressed as your favorite character from the Star Wars universe.
