Star Wars Clothes (Onesies, Snapsuits, T-Shirts and Hats) for Babies and Kids]

We're going to the midnight showing of Star Wars tonight. I know. I'm a geek fan who has been burned twice before, but I still can't help myself. Although we won't be taking Madame (of course), my sister still wanted to know if I had any sweet Star Wars gear to dress her in today. It was a good idea I thought, but I don't have anything, and I can't say that I've ever seen anything in a store or online. So even though it's too late, I went shopping online last night to see what's out there.


The quick answer is almost nothing. There are some t-shirts for older boys at Target, and the official Star Wars Shop has some lame kids t-shirts with an M&M tie-in (I guess one brand just isn't enough). Other than that and one Star Wars "Celebration III" onesie I found over at, it seem Star Wars clothes for babies are pretty much the domain of eBay DIYers. The tshirts and onesies seem like something I might be able to do with my meager Photoshop skills and some iron-on paper, but I did think the Darth Vader baby costume was kind of cool.

Could I have found a merchandising niche Lucas hasn't exploited yet?
