Imperial Guards are incredibly loyal to their leaders. Their job is to protect the emperor and they will kill whoever gets in the way without hesitation. The faces of all Imperial Guards are concealed so they cannot be spotted out of uniform, similar to that of an executioner. The red robes are a way to symbolize their rank and duty. 

This is a great cosplay for people who are looking for a bold and strong costume from the Star Wars universe. You’re going to spark fear in your enemies the moment you enter a room clad in an Imperial Guard costume. However, it won’t look complete if you’re alone! Get some other Star Wars fans involved as other Imperial Guards and march through the halls with power.

About Imperial Guard

The Imperial Guards are highly skilled warriors who have been recruited as the Galactic Emperor’s bodyguards. Emperor Palpatine formed the team of guards as a way to protect himself any time he needed to make a public appearance.  They are trained in many advanced forms of combat and are said to be the most skilled fighters in the galaxy. Their faith is unquestionably linked to their current emperor of power and will do what is asked of them without question.

Some believe that the Imperial Guards are actually droids because of how invincible they seem to be, but they were all chosen from the Imperial Military. They don’t speak to anyone, not even each other, and make little to no movement when not in combat. They hold a kind of legacy through the galaxy and inspired the formation of the Elite Praetorian Guard. Their unwavering loyalty and dangerous set of skills should never be tested as they will attack without a second thought.
