Lucasfilm and Youtube hired us for a large group of Star Wars cantina costumes and mask rentals and to be a part of three new videos created by three top Youtube channels to promote “May the 4th.” They had a great concept: Provide three production companies with a beautiful set (created by Ryan Brett Puckett and his team!) and professional creature masks and costumes by us, and see what they can do in the Star Wars universe.
Over the course of a week, each crew came in for several days to shoot, and we greatly enjoyed working with the talented folks on all three teams! They all had great dedication to their craft (and shared our real love for Star Wars!)
We had a blast shooting this funny video with special guest stars – Ben Folds, Weird Al, Lisa Loeb, Rick Springfield, Chris Daughtry, Jordin Sparks, Reggie Watts, Mark McGrath, Liz Phair and MC Chris!

With tens of millions of channel views, and a serious passion for all things Star Wars, Corey’s talented crew was a natural fit for this May the 4th project! Their video saber fight through a crowded cantina meant lots of costumed extras and aliens for us to put in masks and dress!
Star Wars – Imagined by kids! Another video with lots of alien extras in our cantina costumes and masks, this time with some silly fun! The actors from Bored Shorts lip synced along with a soundtrack provided by young kids hilariously acting out the cantina scene in their own words!
They’ve also got a Behind the Scenes video!
And if that isn’t enough behind the scenes for you, check out Tom’s article about it on the official StarWars.com site!
Special thanks to our on-set crew of dressers, wranglers and makeup artists who made filming go so smoothly and got all those actors in and out of our cantina costumes! Tom Spina, Brian Lewis, Patrick Louie, John Ciarlone and Casey Wong
