The first "Star Wars" movie was released a year before the first issue of Elfquest. The movie may not have had any influence on the comic, but costume design in the original Star Wars trilogy drew from Seventies fashions, as did Elfquest. For example, in "Return of the Jedi", Carrie Fisher's "bikini from hell", as the actress described it, was a product of the 1970s Art Nouveau revival. This same influence is evident in the design of the halls of Blue Mountain. starwars.fidm.edu/#fix Here is an online exhibit of Star Wars movie costumes, in which you can see some of the same Seventies influence that appears in Elfquest. I think Farrah was one of the influences that led to the Big Hair look in the eighties. New hairstyling appliances helped this trend.
