May The Force Be With You: Adult And Child Star Wars Costume

Everybody wants "the force," right? Since the movies emerged onto the big screen, every little girl wanted to be Princess Leia or Queen Amidala and every little boy wanted to be Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, a storm trooper and the dreaded Darth Vader. Adult Star Wars costumes are much like child Star Wars costumes, just the scale is different. So, whether you are looking for a Star Wars costume for you little tyke, or a Darth Vader costume for you, you can find the costume that suits you perfectly.

Adult Star Wars Costume

There are many Star Wars costumes for adults. With such a huge selection, it can be difficult to decide. The storm trooper costume is always a hit, as is Chewbacca, the Wookie and the other fun characters. Darth Maul is another popular adult Star Wars costume, mainly due to his cool face makeup.

Child Star Wars Costume

Children also have a lot of selection for their Star Wars costumes. Yoda is a popular look for small children, as are ewoks. Of course, the main characters always capture a child's imagination and Star Wars certainly offers a wealth of characters to intrigue a child. Quite often, when a child gets a costume, he or she does not confine wearing it only during Halloween. Quite often, it becomes a play outfit for dress up and fantasy play. You definitely get your money's worth there!

Wigs and Helmets

Now, you can't be princess Leia without that distinctive hairdo and you just wouldn't be a convincing Luke Skywalker without the X wing helmet. A wig or helmet will really top off a costume and make it more realistic. Plus, it's just a lot more fun to don the headgear or wig and immerse yourself into your character. Kids love it too; they can step farther into their imaginations.


You can't talk about Star Wars without talking about the wise Yoda. Yoda is a popular kids' costume, mainly because Yoda is a little guy. However, even bigger kids are getting in on the game and slipping into a Yoda costume. Also, even though it is a typical child Star Wars costume, there are some available in adult sizes.

R2D2 and C3PO

Who could forget the adorable robots, R2D2 and C3PO? These are very popular costumes for all ages, not only because they look great, but the characters themselves are so endearing. There are some adorable R2D2 costumes for little kids and toddlers that are just adorable.

Darth Vader Costume

Darth Vader, the dark force in Star Wars, is a popular character, figure and costume. This is a popular adult Star Wars costume because of the menace and drama that it creates. However, kids love Vader too. He is impressive, intimidating and downright scary!

Costumes for both kids and adults are typically worn at Halloween or when going to masquerades. Many people love to dress up and Halloween gives everyone a really good excuse to put on a costume and have a ball. The cool thing about costumes, particularly Star Wars costumes, is that you can be as simple or as complex as you wish. While a Darth Vader costume may be quite involved with many pieces, an Obi Wan Kenobi costume is much simpler. It is up to you to determine how far you want to go with the complexity of your costume.
