No need to travel to a galaxy far, far away this Halloween [1]. Save yourself the long intergalactic flight and dress in Star Wars garb. If you're a lady of the Force, don't fret: you're not limited to just Princess Leia and Queen Amidala (although those are very viable options). Try a female version of Han Solo, Luke, or even the Millennium Falcon on for size. In the gallery, we've got tons of costume inspiration from the best Star Wars cosplay this side of the galaxy and don't forget that kids can get in [2] on the fun too.

Millennium Falcon

I cannot explain in words how amazing this Millennium Falcon cosplay is. Spaceship ring? Spaceship hairpiece? Spaceship tutu? I can't.

Princess Leia

The princess wears her hair in two braided side buns except, of course, when she's enslaved. Her costume consists of one long dress with wide sleeves and a high neck. The dress is belted at the waist.

Obi Wan and Leia

An even better accessory? Your significant other!

Princess Leia

Leia was, unfortunately, enslaved by Jabba the Hutt in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. The metal bikini hasn't been the same since. Start with a black bikini and add gold accents with spray paint, then use a maxi skirt (cut a high slit on the right side) as the bottom.

Queen Amidala

The elaborate Queen Amidala costume is always a challenge. The headpiece is very intricate, but just put your own spin on it and it'll look great.

Queen Amidala

This girl . . . nailed it.

Sith Anakin Skywalker

Not surprisingly, Anakin wears dark garb when he goes to the Dark Side. He wears a black, leather-like sleeveless tunic, cinched by a utility belt, over a black long-sleeved t-shirt with billowy sleeves. His pants are a darkish brown, and his shoes are black boots. A long hooded robe is necessary.

Jedi Luke Skywalker

Luke's garb is quite simple. This young Jedi dons a black tunic, a utility belt at the waist, black pants, and black boots.

Obi-Wan Kenobi

Obi-Wan must be bearded.


This is an incredibly good use of cardboard and gold foil.

Princess Leia and R2-D2

You can always accessorize with an R2-D2 baby.

C-3PO and R2-D2

Grab your best friend and do a simple version of C-3PO and R2-D2!

Han Solo(tress)

Darling Amy [16] is selling this supercute, handmade Han Solo pinafore for $85.

Han Solo

Loving this female take on our favorite scoundrel!

Han Solo

For maximum scoundrel-ness, show a bit of your chest.


The glowing eyes of this Tatooinian are too good!

Chewbacca and Han Solo

This ingenious cosplayer assembled a furry hood, vest, and shorts, then made her shoulder bag into a bandolier!

This cosplayer has great fur bracelets.

Ewok Buddies

Dressing up as an ewok is even more fun in pairs!


This ewok couple is pretty into the fur and looking fierce.

Visas Marr

This Knight of the Old Republic has beautiful ornamentation on her hood and gown.


The Jedi historian is a vision in white.

Aayla Secura

The Rutian Twi'lek Jedi Master is recognized by her blue skin and blue ponytail-like tails atop her head.

Rey and BB-8

You can try making your own BB-8!


Rey wears beige and, of course, dark boots.

Rey with a lightsaber

You can dress as Rey any way you like — including this example where she wears a dress.

Finn and Rey

Finn needs the classic Poe Dameron jacket and any other dark clothing will do.

Finn and Rey

Seriously, don't forget the Poe Dameron jacket for Finn!

Kylo Ren

Kylo requires the special lightsaber and all-black clothing.

Kylo Ren and General Hux

To be General Hux, make sure to dress like Kylo — except in tighter, more uniform-like black clothing.

Poe Dameron

Join the resistance and dress as Poe!

Poe Dameron

You can be as intense or low-key as you'd like as Poe.


Feel free to make your BB-8 super unique . . .

. . . Or, super girlie!
