Some last-minute Star Wars Halloween costume ideas

SpoooookyStarWars.com’s Bonnie Burton has a guest-post up over at io9 with a variety of tips and tricks for DIY Star Wars costumes from all around the internet.

I’ve always been fond of the quick and easy Jedi robe. Sure, it won’t get you into the Rebel Legion or anything, but it’s easy and instantly recognizable, and what more does one really need out of a Halloween getup? (And if you pair it with some of those old-school printable masks, like Yoda up there, actually kinda creepy.)

Let the Halloween costume mocking officially begin!

Protip: None of these costumes will get you laid, boys.

Star Wars Shop has a bunch of standard original trilogy costumes – your cheapie Hans, Lukes, and stormtroopers and et cetera – but perhaps the most horrifying? The Jabba costume. What self-respecting adult would wear this in real life? Sadly, I’m pretty sure there are several of you out there. And I demand photos.

Though I have to love that they picked the lost Backstreet Boy to model Luke, and one of the Hardy Boys for Han.

San Diego Comic-Con is over. But the con’s spirit – and the reports – are sure to live on. We’ll try our best to catchup. Just not right now. (Photo by the San Diego Shooter, aka Nathan Rupert.)

StarWars.com is still posting pics as well, including our first look at a Clone Wars pop-up book and our only look at the FOTJ panel.
