Hopefully, the following five Star Wars themes and items can help bring together your already existing costume or inspire something new. From the little things that can make or break your costume to making sure our pets are not left behind, let’s begin in no particular order!
1. Star Wars jewelry
For those who do not want to dress up, a simple solution could be regular clothing options that resembles a specific character. Think Disneybounding but for Halloween.
A great way to compliment the outfit is of course jewelry. For fans of Solo: A Star Wars Story or Han Solo himself the Star Wars Corellian Dice Necklace from GameStop might be the perfect finishing touch. With 22 reviews and 4.6 stars on the website, luck will be on your side.
If you are not going for anything particular and just need an excuse to show your Star Wars fandom, the Star Wars Earrings 3 Pack from the same website will be the jewelry you are looking for.
Channel your inner bounty hunter and be prepared to hunt for the best candy in the galaxy. Take your pick from three sets of earrings that you will be able to wear several times after the holiday is over.
2. Jedi accessories
No Jedi look is complete without a lightsaber.
Lightsabers can be found almost everywhere including Galaxy’s Edge in both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Prices range from decent to very expensive and the decision to purchase a lightsaber will depend on how much the individual is willing to spend.
Will this be a one-time use lightsaber for a fun Halloween party or will it be used several times a year? The YDD GENIUS Star Wars Lightsaber Metal Aluminum Hilt, Ghost Premium Force FX RGB on Amazon.com is priced at $79.99.
This lightsaber can change between sixteen colors but be warned this is not for children under five years old!
This product has received mixed reviews. Thankfully the description is lengthy and provides warning information including contact information for those wanting to learn more about the product. The glowing blade with three sound options will be the envy of many.
The set of eight Jedi Food Energy Food Capsules Pellets are far from any bright and attention grabbing lightsaber but will add extra detail to your Jedi look. These are, “100% Metallic with removable cap”, “2 chrome (energy) , 2 brown (food) , 2 silver (energy) and 2 gold (food) colored capsules.”
The 32 customer reviews don’t lie.
3. Dress to impress the Resistance
It’s time to save the galaxy and save a little bit of money in the process. For those who want to put together their costume instead of buying one from a store, Film Jackets may have what you need.
Wow the crowd in the Star Wars Rise of the Skywalker Finn Leather Vest before the film even comes out! Now at 18% off, Finn’s leather vest exterior is made from real leather with viscose lining on the inside. Add this vest to a black shirt and some black denim jeans with a belt and you’re set!
Need a black shirt? You can include one with your purchase for an additional $9. From the same website, check out Solo A Star Wars Story Brown Leather Jacket. At 31% off, attend Halloween parties solo or with your Qi’ra sweetheart. Made with quality in mind, you’ll be wanting to wear this jacket throughout the cooler months.
Don’t forget to use the code “SAVE10” for $10 off your purchase of $75.
4. For our furry companions
Sometimes our furry friends could use some help for Halloween. Your small or medium-sized dog will dominate the galaxy and the neighborhood in this STAR WARS Darth Vader Illusion Dog Costume from Petco.
Currently on sale for $20.99 your most darling dog can let the dark side flow through them. Unfortunately for our feline friends, the STAR WARS Ewok Cat Hat is out of stock. In case the item is not restocked in time, a quick trip to Amazon may help.
Your cat can match your Princess Leia attire or compliment your Han Solo costume with the Rubie’s Star Wars Leia Buns for Cats. Royalty never looked so good.
5. The multi-use character backpack
These Star Wars backpacks are not new. However, they are too adorable to pass up for those who want to get their money’s worth as well as treasure their purchase for years to come.
Star Wars Backpack Buddies Yoda from Walmart is too epic to miss. Just look at that smile! Look at the quality!
Yoda is a plush backpack with ample room for even your child’s school supplies and homework. By day it can be a regular backpack; by Halloween, it is the Jedi Master himself training you to become a Jedi.
Learn the ways of the force as the adjustable straps hug your back comfortably with Yoda to help along the way. Priced at $34.99, this is one Halloween accessory that can be used throughout the year and never fail to bring a smile and urge to speak in a passive voice.
You can find the Yoda Plush Backpack on the Disney shop website however it will be more money and has yet to receive reviews.
There are many ways fans can dress up with Stars Wars in mind this holiday. From pulling together a costume with items already available in your home to purchasing a few items to complete the look. The possibilities are endless!
Think of characters you always admired, get creative and have fun with it! Be safe and have a very Happy Halloween!
