From a galaxy far, far away … Halloween 2020 was our Star Wars themed costume year. The story began years ago and unfolded in the midst of a pandemic. It was a different adventure (complete with face masks and socially distanced treats), but just as fun as years past.

Star Wars Family Themed Halloween Costumes

Princess Leia

This is the costume that set our family theme this year. We purchased it on clearance at the Disney Store after Halloween 4 (5?) years ago – when our daughter was still a baby! Having an older brother I assumed at some point she too would be very familiar with Star Wars and Princess Leia was a natural fit.

As time has passed, her only real Star Wars knowledge has been the Lego game for the Wii. When I pulled this costume from the back of the closet, I wasn’t even sure it would get worn. Thankfully, she was immediately excited about the costume and fun wig. And it fit perfectly! We quickly started showing her movie clips and pictures so she would have a better idea who she was dressing up as.


While one was excited about a costume, we hit the “less than enthused” phase with our son. He’s a middle schooler now and maybe edging on too cool to dress up with the family? Given 2020 is so different and I knew parties, trunk or treats, and even traditional trick or treating were out, I didn’t push back. Rather, I gave in to his request for a Baby Yoda plush that sits on your shoulder (it is pretty fun) with the deal that he would at least wear a themed shirt.

We tossed around a number of “Yoda speak” phrases for the shirt. In the end we agreed on “Take Your Candy I Will.” I had fun designing it in my Silhouette software using a Star Wars themed font plus my own fun little Yoda-ish treat bucket.


I chose R2-D2 for my Star Wars themed Halloween costume. I saw lots of fun ideas online. In the end, I opted for a comfy solution – a┬áprinted t-shirt and leggings (bonus: the leggings have pockets large enough to hold my iPhone! Perfect for our costume ‘parade’ stroll around the neighborhood on Halloween). I added a blue tutu for a little fun. Then made my own headband to finish off the look.

Darth Vadar

Sticking to our theme plus keeping it simple, my husband dressed in a Darth Vadar style look. We ordered a fun t-shirt that he will definitely wear throughout the year (and hopefully on a future Walt Disney World vacation!). Then added a kids’ Darth Vadar costume mask & cape we have in the dress-up bin. The full Darth mask was a bit much when walking the neighborhood in the costume parade so wore the face mask I made for him when he took it off. Simple, effective and safe.

We hope you had a fun and safe Halloween!
