Steal These Star Wars Costume Ideas For Halloween

Sep 14 2014 - 8:35am

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.

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 with gold spray paint and some paper mache, you can do anything.

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.

Luke Skywalker

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

Obi-Wan Kenobi

Obi-Wan must be bearded.

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