Shawna Trpcic said she researched material on the subject matter introduced by George Lucas in the original Star Wars films to make her work in the spin-off as “realistic” as possible.
The costume designer, known for her work on Disney’s The Mandalorian, said she tried to be “loyal” to the original films.
She won the Outstanding Science Fiction/Fantasy Television Award for her work in The Book of Boba Fett: Chapter 1 at the 24th Annual Costume Designers Awards (CDGA) on Wednesday Wednesday, in Los Angeles.
“I grew up watching Star Wars… so playing in this world, playing in the sandbox if you want – Tatooine sand is incredible fun,” she told PA news agency.
“Being a part of that is exciting and amazing.”
Trpcic has won fan acclaim for her designs that resemble the original Lucas blockbusters.
The designer said she wanted to take her research “to the next level” and studied the source material to start from “same background”.
“I hope that I can create the same product,” she said.
“I’ve tried to use only classical and traditional creative methods… so that they really feel authentic.
“Like they were done in the 1970s to 1983, that’s my playground and I try to stay true to that.”
Trpcic said she was not involved in the upcoming Disney spin-off Obi-Wan Kenobi, which will be released in the spring.
But she said she would be “very open” to doing more Star Wars projects, adding that “but I’m not allowed to tell you about that”.
