‘Star Wars’ Chrometrooper suit revealed at D23 in all its shiny glory

In the First Order (the new name for the Empire in Star Wars: Episode VII) Captain Phasma is the shiny new big bad.

 

This new character is allegedly the muscle behind the new dark side, and her costume, which was on display at Anaheim’s D23 convention, gleams.

 

Phasma is played by Game of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie, and hopefully that means there will be plenty of Star Wars-type sword swinging and butt kicking happening with fists of mirrored armour. Her outfit (dubbed by fans as the chrometrooper) is a shiny spectacle.

 

The chrome suit also influenced the character name and director J.J. Abrams. “Phasma I named because of the amazing chrome design that came from Michael Kaplan’s wardrobe team,” Abrams said in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly. “It reminded me of the ball in Phantasm, and I just thought, ‘Phasma sounds really cool.’”

 

Sadly, little background information has been provided on this character. However, thanks to the signage at D23 we know what her suit is made out of, so here’s the official costume contents list:

Costume components:

Helmet — Chrome vacuum-plated 3D printed nylon

Cape — Cotton canvas coated and painted with binder

Armor — Chrome vacuum-plated molded polyurethane

Undersuit — Cotton lycra

Gussets — Moulded rubber and cotton and lycra

Collar — Neoprene and rubber

Belt — Rubber

Gloves — Chrome-painted 3D printed fingers over leather

Boots — Chrome vacuum-plated polyurethane armor over leather

And now you know.
