May the Fourth Be With You: Celebrating Star Wars Day 2024

With Star Wars Day 2024 just around the corner, Star Wars Events are popping up all over the place. Do a little digging and you’re bound to find events in your area. From Star Wars trivia nights, book clubs, concerts, or a rave or dance party, there are events to celebrate May the Fourth this year. Whether you’re headed out to join the fun or planning a quiet Star Wars Day at home with activities like origami & paper crafts, crochet, baking, or Lego, we’re here to help you look the part while celebrating!


The core message of Star Wars is the battle between good and evil. So why not get your family members to choose a side and embrace it for the day? Choosing the Dark Side will also give you the perfect option for Star Wars Halloween dress-ups! If the kids don’t want to play the dark side, perhaps the parents are the baddies and the kids are the goodies – I mean the adults set the bedtimes don’t they? We have a huge range of Dark Side Star Wars characters for kids and adults!


Of course, the brave and true will want to be part of the resistance. Who can resist the lure of doing heroic deeds while flying around the galaxy? From Finn to Poe, Rey to Obi Wan, and Leia to Han Solo, there are some great options for those who want to save the world, not destroy it.


If the battle of good vs evil doesn’t take your fancy, there are some great creatures featured in the Star Wars universe! You can embrace your inner Yoda, take a ride on a Tauntaun, become the legendary Chewbacca or even the cutest of Star Wars creatures – the Ewoks!


Other easily identifiable options for Star Wars costumes are the droids and cyborgs. For many kids, they’re the most fun characters. Who hasn’t imitated C-3PO’s “I am C-3PO, human-cyborg relations” or tried to beep like R2-D2? There’s also K-2SO, BB-8 or the evil General Grievous for those looking for a metal-based lifeform cosplay. 


 Stormtroopers are an iconic part of the Star Wars universe, but they don’t all have to look the same. With the red Sith Trooper costumes, black Death Trooper & Shadow Trooper costumes, orange or blue marked Clone Troopers, camouflage ARF troopers, or the traditional white, plus the black mask variation for the Executioner Stormtroopers there’s a way for you and your kids to blend in or stand out while serving the Galactic Empire.


Star Wars Costumes for Kids in Wheelchairs or Hospital Beds

The team at Star Wars has joined up with Rubie’s Costumes to bring out adaptive costumes for kids in wheelchairs and hospital beds. With a modified design that can be easily put on when your child is seated, and with special access panels for tubes and wires, these incredible costumes let more kids escape their everyday with a fun costume.


Star Wars Costumes for Girls

There are some great options for girls who love Star Wars because let’s face it, as Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker himself) said, without Princess Leia saving Luke & Han Solo, Episode 4: A New Hope would’ve been a very short film! Whether your little girl wants to be Rey, Leia or Padme there are great options to choose from. If her plans for world domination mean she’d prefer to join the dark side, check out the Captain Phasma costume or the Stormtrooper and Darth Vader dresses.

 Another great Star Wars girl’s costume option is Ahsoka Tano. Ahsoka has become a favourite with young girls through her appearances in the Clone Wars, Tales of the Jedi (season 2 coming soon!), Star Wars Rebels, the Mandalorian and the Book of Boba Fett. Her own show had its release in August 2023 and the trailer has dropped for season 2, coming in 2025.


Preschoolers Are Loving Young Jedi Adventures

New shows like Young Jedi Adventures introduce kids to the Star Wars universe with content aimed at younger viewers. If you haven’t discovered this gem yet and you have preschool-age kids, it’s worth checking out. It follows a group of younglings in the High Republic era, which is centuries before the main Star Wars films. Kai Brightstar, Lys Solay and Nubs are learning to be Jedi Knights and go on adventures with Kai’s friend Nash Durango. Along the way, they learn about teamwork, overcoming fears, and how to trust in the Force. Paired with a strong message about honesty and the value of hard work, this fun show is a great way to get little kids interested in Star Wars.


Toddler Costumes for Star Wars Day

Kids and babies are never too young to join the light side (or the dark side!). From Stormtroopers to Darth Vader, Princess Leia to Obi Wan Kenobi, and X-Wing Pilots to Wicket the Ewok, there are plenty of Star Wars toddler costumes to make it your cutest Star Wars Day ever!


Costume with Lightsabre Combos

For those wanting to go the extra mile this Star Wars Day, check out the costume options that come with a lightsabre included. Kids can choose from Darth Vader or Obi Wan Kenobi, while adults can check out the Jedi Knight Accessory Set.


Easy Star Wars Dress-Ups for Adults

If you’re looking to add a little Star Wars to your outfit without going the full costume, check out these simple Star Wars dress-up options. Choose from detailed, comfortable masks that you can easily put on and take off, top and mask sets for a casual costume option, hoods that can be added to your everyday attire, or even shoulder sitters to bring Grogu or a Porg along on your adventures!



For the Truly Committed Star Wars Fans

For adults really committed to the Star Wars Day experience, check out these Premium options. The Darth Vader costume is made using the same moulds from the original film trilogy, giving real authenticity to your costume. Just make sure you’ve got the Imperial March queued up on your phone to play whenever you enter a room!


Women’s Star Wars Costumes

Without a shadow of a doubt, Star Wars wouldn’t be the success it is without the women who are called on to step up and save the day. Women who want to get involved in Star Wars Day cosplays have both dress and trousers options. Whether you’re saving the galaxy as Rey, Jyn Erso or Padme Amidala, tearing it down in a Stormtrooper or Darth Vader outfit, or hiding just how deadly you are in Princess Leia’s slave outfit, you’re an integral part of the Star Wars universe!


Dress Up Your Pets for Star Wars Day!

Pets can even join in the Star Wars Day fun with official Star Wars pet costumes available – they truly make for epic walkies! Your wise old cat would make a perfect Yoda while your dog can be Yoda, Princess Leia, Darth Vader or R2-D2.


Star Wars Party Decorations

Don’t forget – if you’re celebrating Star Wars Day with a party set to jive like the Mos Eisley Cantina, don’t forget to add some decorations! The mini plastic Star Wars fences are the perfect way to let your guests know they’ve come to the right house. Make sure your walls are decorated with a variety of masks and the Dark Side recruitment wall art. An array of helmets and weapons is also a great way to continue the Star Wars theme on your food and drink tables. Finish it all off with the Darth Vader bucket filled with chips or lollies and your guests will be blown into a galaxy far, far away!
