In Guardians of the Galaxy, Chris Pratt plays Peter Quill who is also know as Star Lord. Together with his space-based friends, they team up to stop Ronan the Accuser and save the day. While you may not be a planet saving superhero like Star Lord, you can definitely dress like him this Halloween. Start with a Short Sleeve Crew Tee, Red Galaxy Leather Jacket, Armored Cowhide Leather Racing Pants , Walker-130 Boots, and a Leather Ratchet Belt. Before launching off, make sure to bring your Star Lord Style Walkman and Mask, Canvas Military Messenger Bag, and Guardians of the Galaxy Quad Blaster.
Played by Chris Pratt in the 2014 film adaptation of Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, Starlord is the half-human intergalactic hero of our dreams. 26 years after being abducted by an alien star-ship, Star Lord (also known as Peter Quill) gains a reputation as an outlaw, mainly due to his run-ins with the intergalactic police. After meeting his team on a somewhat failed mission to steal the mysterious ‘orb’, Peter quill teams up with Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, Drax, and Groot to defend the planet Xanar from being destroyed.
Although he lives the life of an intergalactic hero, Star Lord’s look is quite easy for an earth dweller to attain. Start off with a red leather jacket, some leather pants, and finish it off with a Star Lord inspired helmet.
The background of Peter Quill differs slightly between marvel’s original character and the different adaptations ( tv shows, video games, etc.). In the film however, after seeing his mom die of terminal cancer, an 8-year old Peter Quill is taken by the Ravengers (an intergalactic group of thieves) with the intention of bringing him to his father. After meeting Peter however, it was decided by the leader of the Ravengers (Yondu Udonta), that Peter would stay and be raised as his own. Peter’s skills as a former thief come in handy once he forms the Guardians of the Galaxy. After proving himself a hero and saving the planet Xanar, Star Lord (along with the other guardians) have their records expunged, solidifying their place as Guardians of the Galaxy.
