If Luke Skywalker is the center of the Star Wars galaxy, then Rey is his twin sun. The similarities between the two characters aren’t coincidental. Both outliers, they make their ways through the story to become the key to their respective stories. Rey is clearly the leader for a new generation of Star Wars fans. First revealed in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey will once again be leading the Resistance when late 2017 sees the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
This is all a way of saying: awesome choice to be Rey for Halloween! This year’s options for Rey costumes are somewhat thin. We’ve narrowed this list to five: three for adults and two for kids, and they’re presented to represent the options from each movie that features Rey. The main difference between the costume look from The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi is, largely, the darker shading, and more grey, in the Episode VIII (Jedi) gear.
If you want to get pumped up for the upcoming film, take a look at our list of The Top 10 Best Star Wars: The Last Jedi Halloween Costumes. It includes the very cool trailer. To get a bit deeper look into the new look for Rey, take a look at a Star Wars fan’s YouTube channel.
May the Rey be with you.

5. CG Women’s Rey Fancy Cosplay Costume
This is the only costume of the list that is not made by Rubie’s. This one is elevated a bit, in that it uses better materials and is possibly more suited to cosplay than the other options. This one includes the shirt, pants, bag, belt (2), cuff and two oversleeves. The materials are cotton and leather. One of the reviewers talked about the high quality, calling it “One of the best quality costumes ever…cannot compare to any of the other brands being sold online.”
