For those of you watching Star Wars: The Clone Wars, a point of contention has been the character models and, in particular, how one of them is dressed. Enter Exhibit A: Ahsoka Tano.
Ahsoka Tano, Padawan to Anakin Skywalker, has spent the last two seasons adventuring around the galaxy in a tube top, tights, and knee-high boots. According to various sources, including the official site and Star Wars Insider magazine, Ahsoka is among the characters getting a revamp.
I feel this is a great direction for the series. It makes Ahsoka look older and more believable as a Jedi fighting in a war. I mean, granted, there have been a few costuming gaffes in Star Wars history, most notably the infamous Snow Bunny Padmé from the Tartakovsky Clone Wars short cartoons.
Skintight clothing in a blizzard? Somehow, I can’t quite believe that. But the current Ahsoka model stretches my suspension of disbelief to its limits as that poor little teenager tries to save the galaxy in tights and a tube top, which is apparently the only thing in her wardrobe. Either that, or The Gap had a sale and she stocked up.
Okay, okay, I’ll stop picking. I can only hope that this change in The Clone Wars is permanent.
