Force Friday Header

 

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens still 104 days away, fans can rejoice in the next best thing to opening day - Force Friday! Today is the officially recognized Disney/Lucasfilm merchandise release date for everything from action figures to Legos to costumes. As your trusted Halloween costume online retailer, we’ve got the latest news, pictures, and, of course, masks/costumes/accessories from The Force Awakens. This pre-release focus is on many of the new characters to the film franchise, such as the heroes Finn and Rey, and big bads Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma, and the ever-present (but rebranded) Stormtroopers. Take a look at the brand new costumes for children and adults below.

The original Star Wars trilogy had Darth Vader. The prequel trilogy had…Count Dooku? Darth Sidious? We honestly don’t even know. We don’t like to think too hard about the prequel trilogy. Anyways, the big bad this time around looks to be Kylo Ren, a mysterious, black and silver masked villain with an odd-shaped lightsaber. It’s that unique, crossguard lightsaber that first introduced us to Ren, when the first Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser clip showed him stalking through dark woods and igniting his blade.

If the popularity of bad guys like Darth Vader and Darth Maul is any indication, Kylo Ren will similarly be a character that fans young and old love to hate. We anticipate this will be our hottest selling Star Wars costume of the season, so we’ve stocked up on deluxe and classic costume sets for adults and children, as well as separate accessories such as gloves, half and full helmets and, of course, that infamous lightsaber.

Here's what we know about Finn: He was once a member of an elite First Order Stormtrooper unit. Something bad happened, and he fled. Now the First Order is after him and he has to earn the trust of some new friends. Finn’s attire harkens back to the classic worn-in yet modern look of the original trilogy costume design. His beige bomber jacket with black pants is functional and stylish, with space to hold a blaster or, as the latest teaser post has suggested, a lightsaber. While not as distinctive as some of the other Force Awakens costumes, we expect many fans will want to pose as the newest hero of the Star Wars franchise this Halloween season and beyond. We have both adult and child deluxe costumes available, as well as Finn’s distinct blaster accessory sold separately.

A loner and scavenger on the planet Jakku, Rey is a strong and independent hero and a welcome female lead to the Star Wars cinematic universe. The wind and sand-swept planet of Jakku is home to pirates and cutthroats who prowl the desert landscape for scrap to sell. It’s no wonder that Rey sports Persian-inspired garb, complete with headdress and custom goggles to keep the sun and sand out of her face. Mobile and practical, this costume features a unique wrap design that is instantly recognizable.

Fans have been clamoring for more female representation in the Star Wars universe ever since Princess Leia appeared to be one of three women in the entire original trilogy. Disney and Lucasfilm have listened and poised Rey as torch-bearer for the new franchise—a strong and encouraging move. With that in mind, we expect Rey’s costume to be a big seller this season, with female Star Wars fans anxious to represent a hero in that actually looks like them. We’ve got deluxe and classic costumes for children and adults, as well as Rey’s distinct eye mask with hood and staff weapon available to purchase separately.

What would Star Wars be without the Stormtrooper? One of the first characters to appear on screen in the original film, the Stormtrooper is, arguably even more than Darth Vader, the mascot of the entire franchise. The Force Awakens takes place 30 years after Return of the Jedi, so the latest version of the Stormtrooper has gone through a bit of rebranding, both in design and name. Now titled First Order Stormtroopers (to set them apart from the original trilogy troopers), their look is slightly streamlined, with a modified chest piece, helmet, and visor shape.

The Flametrooper is an entirely new creation, but not a completely alien design. The Flametrooper features a revised helmet to filter smoke and protect them from the heat of their massive flamethrowers. They also carry two large canisters on their backs to disperse the incendiary element. Everyone loves a Star Wars trooper, whether they be Storm, Clone, or Snow, so we are sure these revamped versions of old favorites will be a big hit this Halloween season. We’ve got deluxe and classic versions of both troopers for adults and children, as well as gloves and helmets.

The elite commander of the First Order troopers, Captain Phasma strikes an intimidating pose. Clad in a reflective, chrome version of the First Order Stormtrooper armor, Phasma carries a unique blaster and features a distinctive black and red cape. Inside that armor is actress Gwendoline Christie (known to many as Brienne of Tarth from Game of Thrones), adding another intriguing element to the character. Boys and girls alike will be lining up to don this fearsome and beautiful costume. Choose from adult and child deluxe and classic costumes, as well as gloves, helmet, and blaster accessories sold separately.

 

There is no question that The Force Awakens is going to be the biggest film of the holiday season. The hype has reached fever pitch and we still have three months to go! Show your ultimate and undying love for all things Star Wars when you snag one of these brand new Star Wars costumes before the Jawas and Jakku scavengers do.

His favorite costume of all time was his attempt at a Clint Eastwood “Man with No Name.” He found out that ponchos aren’t just good for the dusty West, but come in handy in the cold of a Minnesota October. With the new Star Wars movies about to be released through Disney, he is looking forward to seeing the amazing new helmets, sabers and all-around awesome cosplay based on the galaxy far, far away.
