5 Star Wars Halloween Costumes That Don’t Require Intense Cosplay Skills

This year has been a wild ride and your Halloween plans are probably looking different than usual. But, that does not mean that you cannot still wear a Star Wars Halloween costume, if you so choose. Maybe you want to wear a Vice Admiral Holdo (Laura Dern) wig in your own home. Maybe you want to look like Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) on your daily "I gotta get outta the house now" walk on October 31. Maybe you want to cozy up Baby Yoda style with your own cup of soap/tea. It's 2020, no one is allowed to judge.

Click through to check out five Star Wars costumes you can easily throw together this Halloween no matter what you're doing. You might not be going to a huge party, but is there really a wrong time to put Princess Leia buns on the side of your head?

Halloween is a time for frights, costumes, and fun, but this year is a little different. You can still do all of those things, but please make sure to practice proper social distancing measures, avoid large gatherings, and remember every costume is best paired with a mask. Refinery29 is your one-stop Halloween shop when it comes to ways to celebrate safely. Enjoy!

Rey's Rise of Skywalker Costume



Rey (Daisy Ridley) basically just wears a lot of light colored fabrics with various belts tied around them. While her clothes were more beige in The Force Awakens, by The Rise of Skywalker, she was pretty much wearing all bright white.
So, if you're going for the latest Rey, try white jeans or pants rolled up to be shorter with a white T-shirt. Then, drape some white cloth over your shoulders — a white scarf forming a criss-cross over your chest would work — and tie it all together with a brown belt. If you can tie any other brown leather or fabric or Ace bandage material around your arms, that will help, as will tan boots. Top it off with Rey's classic hairstyle.

A Classic Princess Leia Costume



If you dress as Princess Leia, you definitely won't have to worry about your costume being recognizable. For her most classic look, you'll need to wear all white. A white mock neck top or sweater with a long white skirt or white dress will do the trick. (Really, just put on a lot of white clothing.) Cinch this all together with a silver belt — or whatever belt you have. Then, of course, you'll need her hairstyle, which can be achieved by either shaping your own hair into doughnut-shaped buns at the sides of your head or by using a Leia wig.

An Updated General Leia Organa Costume



If you're a Leia fan who wants to switch things up, go as General Organa. For her most recognizable outfit from The Force Awakens, you'll need an olive green jumpsuit — or pants and a button-up shirt — a wide belt, and a maroon-ish vest. Wear any boots you have. Like with the Princess Leia costume, the hair is important here. This time, Leia's hair is in a circular braid at the back of her head.

Vice Admiral Holdo's Purple Hair



Vice Admiral Holdo was only in The Last Jedi, but if you're a Laura Dern fan who wants to see how you look with purple hair, this costume is still a great choice. First, find yourself a light brown long sleeve dress. Second, add some silver cuff bracelets. Last, you'll need a short purple wig and you're good to go. Photo: Courtesy of Lucasfilm Ltd.

And, Of Course, A Baby Yoda Costume



Last but certainly not least, we have Baby Yoda, aka The Child, from The Mandalorian. It's a costume that is very cozy, but that requires your face to be green.

Baby Yoda basically just wears a tan coat with a shearling collar, so a tan or beige teddy coat would work great and you can wear it over whatever outfit you want.

The makeup is the key thing here. You'll need to paint your face green and could make the area around your eyes black with eyeliner and eyeshadow to make an illusion of Baby Yoda's big eyes. Yoda ears are key, so if you're crafty you could make them out of cardboard, green paint, and a headband, but if you aren't, Yoda ears are also available for purchase.
