1. Rey Adult Costume
The hottest Star Wars costume for women this Halloween is Rey, from The Force Awakens. Rey’s Jakku garb consists of the top, pants, detached sleeves, cuff, and belt with pouch pictured above. If you want to stand out from all the other Reys, the right accessories are key. We recommend picking up a staff weapon, lightsaber, or hooded eye mask. Brown boots are also a must-have, if you don’t have a pair in your closet already. There’s also a “Grand Heritage” version of this costume, which is slightly higher quality and includes accessories.

Price: $26.72 – $99, depending on size selected
2. Women’s Star Wars Darth Vader Deluxe Costume Jumpsuit
Wanna do a Rule 63 Halloween costume? This sexy Vader costume is perfect for women who love the Dark Side, or Star Wars fans who just don’t want to be one of 100 Reys this year. This costume consists of a jumpsuit and mask. The jumpsuit features attached molded armor, an attached cape, and belt. Depending on what the climate is like where you live, we recommend wearing black boots or black pumps with this costume. Add in a red lightsaber and you’re good to go.
Want to do a group costume? Have your crew be your Stormtrooper entourage. A bevy of sexy female Stormtroopers is a great addition to your Vader look.
Price: $25.36 – $145.15, depending on size selected
3. Secret Wishes Women’s Sexy Princess Leia Slave Costume
Looking for a sexy Halloween costume to spice things up in the bedroom? Be the princess of his dreams in this Return of the Jedi costume. This is a skimpy costume that’s probably a little too revealing for family parties, or for trick or treating in cold climates. The costume includes a skirt with an elastic waistband, and an attached plastic detail. There’s also a soft fabric bra with plastic overlay, choker, armband, and headpiece. Because of all the plastic on this piece, it needs to be hand washed, so don’t stick it in the washing machine or dryer.
Love Leia, but don’t want a sexy costume? We love this Leia costume hoodie, especially for those in cold climates, or those who dislike elaborate costumes.
Price: $23.40 – $107.63, depending on size selected
4. Asajj Ventress Costume
Want a Star Wars costume that’s off the beaten path? Why not opt for a Clone Wars character? This Asajj Ventress costume is perfect for fans of the animated series, as well as any wannabe Sith ladies. The makers of this costume note a “standard” size best fits women who wear a Junior’s size 9-13. Ventress uses two lightsabers with curved hilts, so use those if possible for the best look. If you want lightsabers to complete your look, you could also use two “normal” red lightsabers instead.
To complete this look, you’ll want to pick up a bald cap, and then do a full head makeup job to get her signature skin tone just right. We think this makeup palette has the right blend of colors to help you get just the right shade.
5. Rubie’s Women’s Star Wars Boba Fett Deluxe Costume Jumpsuit
In the same vein as the sexy Darth Vader costume we featured earlier in this post, this sexy Boba Fett jumpsuit is another option to consider for fans of the original trilogy. The jumpsuit has molded armor, an attached cape, and a belt. The mask is a two-piece affair. We recommend picking up a blaster to complete the look. Don’t want to go the “sexy” route with your costume? This men’s Boba Fett costume hoodie is a nice alternative.
Price: $9.42 – $89.99, depending on size selected
6. Rubies Deluxe Padme Amidala Adult Costume
While the prequels are generally some of the least-liked movies in the Star Wars canon, there are still plenty of people who love Natalie Portman’s Padme character. Padme rocks a lot of different looks across three films, but this look from the second film is arguably the most butt-kicking look. This costume includes the jumpsuit, cape, boot toppers, and rubber belt with attached gun prop. If you’re looking for a more colorful costume, you could opt for a classic Queen Amidala costume instead.
Price: $78.27 for size large, prices vary depending on size and costume color

7. Deluxe Adult Captain Phasma Costume
Gwendoline Christie’s Captain Phasma is a fan favorite, and we think her costume is refreshing when so many Star Wars costumes out there are so revealing. The costume includes a jumpsuit with foam armor detailing, along with a two-piece helmet, cape, and belt. This would be a fun couple’s costume, with your better half going as Finn or a Stormtrooper.
Price: $38.51 – $190
8. Secret Wishes Star Wars Female X-Wing Fighter Costume
This costume lets you be a female X-Wing pilot, so you can claim to be the female version of fan favorite characters like Wedge Antilles, Poe Dameron, Biggs, or even Porkins. You could also go as one of the female X-Wing pilots from the Extended Universe, such as Dia Passik or Inyri Forge. This cute costume comes with a dress, belt, headpiece and knee socks. Wear it with mid-calf boots, pumps, or Mary Janes. A similar dress-style Stormtrooper costume is also available, though we think this X-Wing costume looks better.
Price: $25.99 – $97, depending on size selected
9. MutterMui Female Jedi Costume
Curvy girls, this costume is figure flattering, practical, and available in plus size. This look consists of a tunic, pants with attached boot tops and belt. With this base, you can dress as any male or female Jedi you like. Consider adding a Jedi robe for extra warmth or extra drama, and don’t forget the lightsaber.

Price: $69.99 (40 percent off MSRP)
10. Star Wars R2D2 Skater Dress
Costume dresses are a great Halloween costume option. Because they are casual, you can wear them during the week, or at conventions. This R2D2 costume dress is super cute, and perfect for fans of the trilogy, prequels, and new film. If it’s a little short for cold weather in your area, consider pairing it with tall white boots or white leggings for added warmth. Want more droid costume options?
