1. Kylo Ren Costume (The Force Awakens)
The Kylo Ren Costume is the best Star Wars costume for kids in our list. It’s perfect for kids who want to assume the role as the mighty villain-turned-good Kylo Ren. The design and production of this costume is officially licensed, so you can be sure to get great quality. It’s the real deal for your little Jedi.
The costume is entirely made with polyester, which is a great material for kids’ clothes and especially costumes. It’s lightweight and wrinkle-free! Polyester lets your little Kylo Ren run freely, as he battles Rey in style (scroll down to find out more about the Rey Costume below!) The best feature about this costume is Kylo Ren’s helmet. The helmet is decorated with faux scratches and dents from battle damage, which really makes this costume as realistic as the movie!
The official Kylo Ren costume set includes Kylo Ren’s robe, hooded cape, belt and helmet. The lightsaber is sold separately as an accessory. So, if you want your kid to really stand out, that may be a good addition. Small, medium and large sizes are available for this Star Wars costume and is recommended for kids from 3 to 10 years old.
2. Stormtrooper Costume
The Stormtrooper Costume is an outfit based on the iconic design of the Star Wars Trilogy Stormtrooper. The costume is a fitting one-piece fabric jumpsuit, printed down to the finest details to look like the real deal. Plus, it’s lightweight – perfect for the aspiring Stormtrooper as he chases down Rebels.
The costume is meant to be fitting, so make sure you buy the perfect size. This Star Wars costume is available in small, medium and large sizes, recommended for boys aged 8 and above. As a suggestion, only buy this costume if you’re very sure it fits. Otherwise, it’ll appear loose and wrinkled if ill-fitted.
The Stormtrooper Costume set includes the jumpsuit and a plastic Stormtrooper mask. You can easily pair the costume with a pair of white shoes, but you may need to find a pair of white gloves to complete the look.
3. Rey Costume (The Force Awakens)
The Rey Costume is inspired by the protagonist Rey from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It’s a beige jumpsuit printed with the design of Rey’s belt and bag. The Rey Costume also includes Rey’s arm bandages and her sashes, which are stitched at the front.
This simple Star Wars costume was designed with an economical approach. This version of Rey’s costume is perfect if your little one just wants to be Rey for a day. The costume is lightweight – made with 100% polyester – so little Rey can freely move as she duels Kylo Ren in an epic lightsaber fight.
Speaking of lightsabers, Rey’s lightsaber is a separate accessory, but it’ll be a great addition to the costume. A pair of dark boots would complete the costume nicely, although quality boots are known to be quite expensive.
Overall, this Rey Costume is perfect if you’re looking for an affordable Star Wars costume for any type of celebration such as Halloween or a birthday party. It’s especially a good idea to buy this costume if your kid happens to already have a pair of dark boots, otherwise the costume wouldn’t be quite complete.
4. Darth Vader Costume
The Darth Vader Costume is a must-try for every little Star Wars fan! This costume is designed for boys, but scroll down to read about the Darth Vader costume for girls!. This outfit was carefully designed after the popular arch nemesis of the Star Wars Trilogy, Darth Vader.
This official Darth Vader Costume set includes a printed black jumpsuit, Darth Vader’s black cape, mask, and foam 3-dimensional belt. It seems like this costume was designed with convenience in mind, as it’s extremely lightweight. Just bear in mind that the foam belt appears to be a little fragile, so your child should try and protect it from being damaged.
Darth Vader’s mask is the highlight of this Star Wars costume. The costume set includes a battery-operated breathing simulator. Keep in mind that the 2 AA batteries it requires are not included. Now, your kid will really feel and sound like the mighty Sith Lord himself!
Once again, a lightsaber isn’t included in this costume set. So, you’ll need to buy the red lightsaber as a separate accessory. A pair of black shoes and gloves will complete the Star Wars costume just fine. Although if you want to go the extra mile, a pair of black boots is excellent!
5. Captain Phasma Costume (The Force Awakens)
The Captain Phasma Costume is mainly a 100% polyester with a super detailed, printed jumpsuit. It comes in small, medium and large sizes and fits children from 3 up to 10 years old.
The jumpsuit is a seamless, one-piece design. The shoe covers are attached to the leg holes of the jumpsuit, and you won’t need to buy any fancy shoes for this costume. This not only saves you money, but it’s also more convenient!
The Captain Phasma Costume set also includes a cape and the mask. The mask only covers the front of the face. So, if you want a real Captain Phasma helmet, you need to buy it as a separate accessory. Plus, if you want to complete the armour, a pair of grey gloves will do the trick. Please take not that gloves aren’t included in this set.
Overall, it’s a really decent Star Wars costume. The best part about this costume is that it’s a detailed jumpsuit. It even captures the reflections glinting off Captain Phasma’s armor!
6. Princess Leia Costume
The Princess Leia Costume is probably one of the best costumes on this list. The main feature of this costume is its white, full-length dress. Its super simple design is foolproof, as your little Padawan literally can’t trip up in this costume!
This Star Wars costume was inspired by Princess Leia’s iconic look in Star Wars IV: A New Hope. The dress features a turtleneck collar and a hood, and has a hook-and-loop attachment that makes this costume easy for kids to wear. The dress is made of polyester, which is lightweight and breathable as little Princess Leia leads the Rebel Alliance against the Galactic Empire.
What sets this Princess Leia costume apart from the rest is an included wig that’s styled after Princess Leia’s famous twin-braided hair buns. The wig works great, although it may be a little flimsy depending on how well it fits your kid’s head. So, it’s best to ensure that it’s tightly fastened. If your daughter is a brunette with long hair, it’s better to braid and bun it for a more realistic and natural look.
7. X-Wing Fighter Pilot Costume
The X-Wing Fighter Pilot Costume is impressively well-made with printed polyester. Polyester allows costumes to be lightweight, easy to move in and are breathable, which is suitable for kids to run about as they fight in the Rebel Alliance.
The main part of the X-Wing Fighter Pilot Costume is a printed orange jumpsuit, attached with black shoe covers at the leg holes. This cleverly mimics the black boots the X-Wing Fighter pilots wear, and you won’t need to buy additional boots for this costume. That’s money saved, right there!
The prints amazingly capture the 3-dimensionality of the X-Wing Fighter Pilot uniform on the polyester fabric, such as the straps and belt. This makes for a simple Star Wars costume without needing a lot of accessories, and is perfect for single occasions like a Star Wars-themed birthday party.
The flak vest is easy to pull over your kid’s head with a wide collar. It’s artfully sewn with the design of the control device used to configure the X-Wing Fighter pilots’ uniforms, and it looks like the real deal!
The best feature of this costume is the helmet. Unlike most costumes, this set includes an actual, detailed helmet with a yellow visor. This makes the costume all the more realistic and one of the best Star Wars costumes on the market.
8. Darth Vader Costume for Girls
The Darth Vader Costume for Girls is inspired by the design of Darth Vader’s armor, and innovated after the latest teen fashion trends. This Star Wars costume comes in small, medium and large sizes, fitting toddlers to 10-year olds. Please make sure to always check the size chart.
The black dress is stitched with Darth Vader’s control panel – to configure the armor settings – at the front. The dress also features a few flairs, such as the cape, and the fabric flows in the breeze for a majestic effect.
The mask – not to be mistaken for a helmet – is modelled after the design of Darth Vader’s helmet. Unlike the previous Darth Vader costume set, this doesn’t include the breathing simulator.
The costume is the ‘cute’ version of Darth Vader’s costume, tailored towards girls’ fashion. If your little girl ever aspired to be the mighty Sith Lord, she can now take over the Galaxy in style!
9. Luke Skywalker Costume
The Luke Skywalker Costume is a simple, but well-designed costume inspired by one of everyone’s favourite Star Wars heroes, Luke Skywalker the Jedi. The costume is made of a satin-like fabric, and lasts longer than most Star Wars costumes on this list.
The costume features a well-tailored beige tunic, printed belt and brown pants with attached boot-covers. It may be a two-piece costume, but it’s easier to wear and remove than the other jumpsuit costumes, especially if your kid needs a toilet break as he saves the Galaxy.
Thanks to its simple design, the Luke Skywalker Costume is practically flawless and looks like the real Luke Skywalker in every way possible. Now, your little one can control the Force to save the Galaxy!
10. C-3PO Costume
The C-3PO Costume is a great costume for all little Star Wars fans! It’s wonderfully made with 100% polyester and it’s officially licensed by Disney and Lucasfilm.
The gold jumpsuit is probably one of the most iconic costumes ever made on this list. The printed details are so finely replicated, you might actually mistake your child for the real C-3PO! This Star Wars costume also features an elastic hood in the same color that covers your kid’s head, to be paired with the C-3PO mask.
This Star Wars costume set has your kid covered with literally everything they need. This C-3PO costume features gold-coloured gloves to fully transform your little human into the famous Star Wars droid. Plus, the shoe covers seamlessly blend with the rest of the costume with its detailed prints, so you won’t need to buy extra shoes to match this costume.
11. Finn Costume (The Force Awakens)
The Finn Costume is one of the simpler costumes on this list. You could put this costume together yourself quite easily, but why the hassle when it’s officially licensed and ready-to-go?
Finn’s pants, shirt and jacket are all stitched together into one poly-knit jumpsuit, which is convenient if you literally want your costume all in one place. The costume doesn’t include shoes, but you can easily pair it with any pair of black sneakers. The jumpsuit is made with polyester, which is great for kids as they run and fight with the Resistance.
The best feature of this Star Wars costume is the brown jacket. It looks exactly the same as the Resistance fighter jacket Poe Dameron gave Finn in the movie and it also looks very stylish. The Finn Costume is a great outfit if your child wants convenience and simplicity.
12. Mandalorian Beskar Armor Costume
The Mandalorian Beskar Armor Costume is an amazingly detailed costume, it’s certainly a must-try! It’s a long-sleeved polyester jumpsuit printed with accurate details. The front of the armor jumpsuit is stitched with shiny pads to replicate the bulk of the Beskar armor.
This costume also includes a black cape, a mask and shoe covers. The mask only covers the front of the face, secured with an elastic strap. The cape is a little thin, but it holds up pretty well if it isn’t flung around too much. You’ll definitely be able to reuse this costume multiple times, if you take care of it properly.
To complete the Star Wars costume’s look and feel, you’ll need to buy the blaster gun as a separate accessory. A pair of dark-coloured gloves are also nice to have, but the costume already looks great since it features a lot of details.
All things considered, the Mandalorian Beskar Armor Costume is a wonderfully designed outfit. It can probably hold up for several occasions, depending on how it’s stored and maintained.
13. Han Solo Costume (Solo: A Star Wars Story)
The Han Solo Costume is modelled after Han Solo in Solo: A Star Wars Story. It may be another simple Star Wars costume, but it’s an all-time favourite thanks to it’s well-executed design.
Han Solo’s pants, shirt and jacket are all stitched together into one polyester jumpsuit, with boot covers at the leg holes of the jumpsuit. Luckily, the costume doesn’t require additional accessories to dapper up little Han Solo when he’s about to win the Millenium Falcon.
The costume also comes with a belt and holster. Unfortunately, a replica gun isn’t included, so you may need to buy it to complete the costume. Otherwise, the Han Solo costume still looks great.
The Han Solo Costume is an easy costume to pull-off thanks to its simple visual design. Although, it may be a little difficult to wear and remove the jumpsuit when your kid needs a toilet break during his adventure.
14. Padme Amidala Costume
The Padme Amidala Costume is a beautiful white and beige costume for girls. It features a white fitting jumpsuit, accompanied by a shawl, belt and beige boot covers.
The costume is made of polyester, which is lightweight and breathable as little Padme Amidala defends her home planet Naboo from the Trade Federation. The beige boot covers attached to the costume don’t have elastic to stretch them over shoes for a seamless look. So, you should make sure your shoes are the correct size to fit right under the covers.
Although Padme Amidala’s blaster gun is sold separately, the belt has a faux holster attached. So, this Star Wars costume is just fine without the blaster gun, but it’s a good addition nonetheless.
Unlike the Princess Leia costume, the Padme Amidala costume doesn’t have a wig. So, you may need to style your kid’s hair or buy a Padme Amidala wig as a separate accessory if she has short hair.
15. Boba Fett Costume
Last but not least, the Boba Fett Costume is another amazingly detailed Star Wars costume on this list. It’s a long-sleeved polyester jumpsuit printed with precise detail – from the three-dimensional bulk of the armor to the wear-and-tear of battle.
The green cape is a little on the thing side, but it can definitely be used multiple times if maintained properly. Alternatively, you can also create your own cape and attach that to the costume afterwards. This Star Wars costume is great for any type of occasion.
You’ll need to buy Boba Fett’s replica blaster gun to transform your little one into a full-fledged bounty hunter. A pair of gloves would also complete the costume, protecting your little bounty hunter’s hands as he hunts down his targets.
The Boba Fett costume is a wonderful costume overall, whether it’s just for that one Halloween or a few upcoming Star Wars birthday parties. Although, the cape probably needs to be replaced after a while, unless it’s really well-taken care of.
