From piano medleys to a capella songs, there have been a number of musical Star Wars tributes released in honor of The Force Awakens

Many of these have impressed us not just with their musical stylings, but with the props and costumes, and the newest music release just might be the best one yet.

In violinist Taylor Davis’ latest video, she plays a fun medley of Star Wars music while dressed for the light side and the dark side. She goes all out not just with her clothes, but with some great makeup too. The way the video was filmed makes it feel appropriately like a battle between two sides of the Force, helped greatly by awesome special effects used on her bow to make it look like a lightsaber.

Davis explains the idea in an interesting behind-the-scenes video. In it fans get a glimpse of how the medley was filmed in one day, how she became these Star Wars characters, and what was done to give the bow such a spectacular lightsaber look.

If any fans need help getting in the mood for seeing The Force Awakens—whether it’s the first or 10 time—this medley is a must watch.

You can find more of Davis’ music videos on her YouTube channel.
