Perhaps you’re planning a Star Wars party or you’re going to celebrate the release of the new movie by going to the cinema in fancy dress!

Today we’ve used the force to bring you our most authentic Star Wars costumes to help you transform yourself into your favourite Star Wars characters – both new and old.

The perfect fancy dress costumes for Star Wars enthusiast, take a look at our best picks below.

Star Wars Anakin Skywalker Costume

Anakin Skywalker

Become one of the most powerful Jedi that ever lived with an authentic Anakin Skywalker costume.

Also known as the chosen one, Anakin grows up to join the dark side as Darth Vader – father of Luke and Leia and the one of the most evil Sith lords.

This realistic tunic and trousers will start your transformation into Anakin – just complete your costume with his blue signature lightsaber.

Star Wars Princess Leia Costume

Princess Leia

Played by Carrie Fisher in the original Star Wars trilogy, Princess Leia is one of the most instantly recognisable Star Wars characters. She’s the romantic interest of Hans Solo, twin sister of Luke Skywalker and daughter of Darth Vader, and with a realistic Princess Leia costume like this, there’ll be no mistaking who you are.

Of course, no Princess Leia costume is complete without her iconic hairstyle which is fairly easy to do even if you’re not a hairstyling pro. Simply part your hair down the middle and use two hair donuts to put your hair into a bun on each side of your head. Just make sure you’ve got plenty of clips to keep your buns in place!

Star Wars Darth Vader Costume

Darth Vader

Darth Vader appears in all six Star Wars movies so far and falls on the dark side of the Force – serving the evil Galactic Empire under his Sith Master Darth Sidious.

A black jumpsuit and cape form the foundations of this Darth Vader costume but the most important part of it is undoubtedly the mask, which completes your transformation into one of the galaxy’s most evil villains!

Star Wars Kylo Ren Costume

Kylo Ren

Kylo Ren is a brand new Star Wars character for the new movie, and wears a black hood and cloak and wields a dangerous and ragged lightsaber that he built on his own.

Obsessed with the fallen Sith Lord Darth Vader, Kylo Ren’s appearance and behaviour is believed to be modelled on Darth Vader’s.

With a long hooded robe, belt and realistic mask, this authentic Kylo Ren costume is the perfect costume for any Star Wars enthusiast. Just complete the look with some black trousers, knee-length boots and a lightsaber!

Storm Trooper Costume


Become an elite soldier of the Galactic Empire with this official Stormtrooper costume.

Instantly recognisable by their signature white armour, these faceless enforcers of the New Order served as ever present reminders of the absolute power of Emperor Palpatine.

The ultimate symbol of authority, an authentic-looking mask is the most important part of this costume. Then grab a plastic gun and practise your most intimidating stance!
