As The Rise of Skywalker rides off into the sunset, a long life awaiting it on digital and home video formats, StarWars.com take a look into the archive and the details behind the creation of Jannah’s costume.

To create Jannah’s eclectic costume to be worn by actor Naomi Ackie in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, designers and prop makers used real pieces of Imperial armor and costume accessories to inform the look of a scavenging warrior surviving off what she could find, says Lucasfilm Archivist Madlyn Burkert. For instance, Jannah’s quiver is sheathed in a piece of stormtrooper forearm armor — in reality salvaged from a previous production, — as well as leather and twine, with a bow made from cobbled together blaster parts.
