Halloween is nearly upon us. If your kid is still pondering a Halloween costume — cycling through the usual suspects, the crazy fads, and the head-scratchers — you can help guide them, with the wisdom and foresight of a Jedi, toward a safe choice. Star Wars costumes for kids are popular, sure, but they’re varied enough to allow for plenty of self-expression. Kids now have 11 Star Wars movies (and The Mandalorian) to for Halloween costume inspiration. Whether they go for funny or for full-on lightsaber-wielding intensity. No matter where you and your kids are in exploring the Star Wars galaxy, we predict that you’ll be seeing plenty of Jedis (and Siths) on Oct. 31. So here are the best getups for the intergalactic warriors in your life.
The Best Star Wars Costumes for Kids
While we're at it, get thy kid a mask that changes his or her voice to sound like an imperial stormtrooper. You put this helmet it, and presto, like magic, you sound like the ultimate enforcer evildoer. Trust us. These things are awesome.
If your kid is gonna join the Dark Side, he or she might as well rock themselves a proper stormtrooper ensemble like this one. Kids get the iconic Star Wars stormtrooper costume with a printed jumpsuit that comes with attached boot covers and mask.
The Star Wars prequels were by no means the best films, but we do have a thing for the indefatigable Queen of Naboo, who later became a senator and an anti-war spokesperson in the Galactic Senate. Simple yet dramatic, this costume features a jumpsuit with attached boot tops. The blaster is not included, but the shawl and belt are.
The complex, tortured Kylo Ren is a dark warrior who commands First Order missions. And isn't this costume as badass as he is? Kylo Ren doesn't come to play, kids. He's got a temper and he's conflicted about his future. But there's no doubt that this costume is epic Kylo. His black robe is split in the front and back for ease of movement; the hood goes up or down, and the half mask features black mesh over the eye opening.
If a stormtrooper is not the thing this year, how about an ARF trooper, a specialized clone trooper who served during the Clone Wars. This ARF trooper costume features a lightweight printed polyester jumpsuit with Velcro closure, as well as a plastic half-mask.
No matter where your allegiance lies, kids will never go wrong with a costume that pays tribute to the greatest Jedi master of all time. Of course, the costume includes the legendary Yoda mask. It has nose and mouth holes that help make it somewhat more comfortable to wear. But to quote Yoda: 'Do or do not. There is no try.'
Any kid should aspire to do the right things like Finn, a stormtrooper who, horrified by the Order's cruelty in his first combat mission, joins the Resistance. FN-2187, otherwise known as Finn, has a costume that includes a top with an attached jacket. It looks like the outfit worn by the beloved character.
