First up are the classic characters from Star Wars: Leia, Han Solo and a mini Luke Skywalker. All of the ideas this week can easily be transitioned into a larger family group as well. For this Star Wars theme you could add more Jedi knights, Darth Vader, Storm troopers or even a mini Ewok like Ashley did here last year. This doesn’t have to be for a family either, a group of friends could pull this off too!
Keep reading to see more details on this family costume…
For Leia: We chose to go with the the Leia Hoth look rather than the typical Leia look because it’s easier to recreate at home. All you need are white jeans and a white button up, tall boots, a white vest and simply braid your hair on both sides and pin on top of your head.
For Luke: We used a karate top and belt paired with white skinny pants and neutral shoes. And of course you can’t forget a lightsaber! You can pick these up at Halloween stores or online.

For Han Solo: A light colored henley, dark vest, dark jeans and boots. And a blaster pistol!
