Stormtroopers land on Brighton beach - for Star Wars art exhibition

First published in News

Have no fear – stormtroopers haven’t invaded Brighton.

What you see is an artwork piece by artist Zig, as part of his Uzi 1960s Star Wars exhibition.

The exhibition was launched at the beginning of August and Hotel Pelirocco, Brighton’s Boutique Hotel in Regency Square, will be hosting the long-anticipated finale tonight.

There will be a cocktail fountain and tours of the hotel’s new room ‘Lord Vader’s Quarters’.

There will also be a guest appearance from Darth Vader and a storm trooper.

The costumes to be worn at the finale are provided by the UK Garrison, part of the largest costuming group in the world, dedicated to creating ‘movie-accurate’ costumes.

Darth Vader to Princess Leia "I know what you are getting for Christmas".

Leia "Oh yeah, how's that then?".

Vader "Because I have felt your presents".

Really, this is some of the worst Photoshop montaging I have seen in a long time. Why are all the Stormtroopers arms in the same place,the shadows are unrealistic and the lighting is terrible. Should go along way mate.

Stormtroopers camping on Brighton beach. Nothing unusual there. Seen much worse over the years.

Got to agree with Seagull08, really poorly executed. Must have taken the "artist" minutes.
