Best Finn Costume Guide
Join the Resistance against the First Order like Finn from the movie, Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

After his first mission on Jakku, Finn decided to turn against the First Order and flee.
Escape the First Order and Join the Resistance with a Finn Pilot Jacket, Tagless Long Sleeve Black T-Shirt, Slim-fit Multi Pockets Military Cargo Pants, and California-V Suede Jogging Shoes. You would be a fool to enter into battle without your Finn Blaster With Strap by your side.
Finn Cosplay Costumes
In yet another Star Wars franchise movie, Finn is a welcome addition to the cast of Star Wars characters. While this cosplay is simple in the wardrobe department, you almost need to stick closely to our guidelines so that you’re easily recognized for who you’re cosplaying. The all black outfit is easy enough to pull off and luckily with the movies out in theaters and more to follow, a toy storm trooper weapon has never been easier to find!
What sticks out most about Finn is his jacket, which fans will know isn’t really his at all! A brown leather jacket or even one of cloth with red details sewn onto it will complete his signature look. Finn would be lost without his new found friend Rey if you have a partner in cosplay. Most awesome of all is the appearance of Han Solo in this film and of course Chewbacca. If you want to represent a couple of generations through cosplay, those characters would fit the bill.

Finn Costume Tips & FAQs
Embark on a journey of courage and transformation with our detailed costume guide FAQ for Finn, designated as FN-2187, from “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.” Known for his transition from a First Order stormtrooper to a brave Resistance fighter, this guide is designed to help you capture Finn’s unique look from his early appearances in the film. Ideal for cosplay events, Star Wars-themed gatherings, or any occasion where you want to channel Finn’s spirit of change and bravery, our guide covers the essentials of his stormtrooper appearance and his distinctive features.
As FN-2187, Finn wears the standard First Order stormtrooper armor, which is predominantly white with black under-suits and details. Key elements include the white helmet with black visor, white chest and back armor, white shoulder and forearm guards, white thigh and shin guards, and a utility belt. What sets Finn apart is the blood handprint on his helmet, marking a pivotal moment in his story.
To replicate Finn's stormtrooper armor, you can either purchase a replica costume or create a DIY version using white plastic or foam materials shaped into the armor pieces. For the helmet, use a standard stormtrooper helmet and add the distinctive three-streak blood handprint on the left side. This can be done with red paint or a temporary marking.
Underneath the stormtrooper armor, wear a black body suit or fitted black clothing. This represents the standard under-suit of First Order stormtroopers and helps to highlight the white armor pieces. The suit should be snug but comfortable, allowing for mobility.
The footwear for Finn's stormtrooper outfit consists of white boots that are part of the overall armor design. These boots should match the color and style of the stormtrooper armor. If exact replicas are not available, white or black combat-style boots can be used as a substitute.
Finn, known for his journey from compliance to defiance, has several memorable quotes such as: "I'm not Resistance. I'm not a hero. I'm a stormtrooper.," "I was raised to do one thing, but I've got nothing to fight for.," "You don't know a thing about me, where I'm from, what I've seen. You don't know the First Order like I do.," "I'm just a scavenger." and "We'll use the Force. That's not how the Force works!." These quotes reflect Finn's internal struggle, his growth from a First Order stormtrooper to a Resistance hero, and his humorous side. Using them in your cosplay can add depth to your portrayal and help you connect with other fans of "Star Wars" and Finn's inspiring story.
About Finn (FN-2187)
A newcomer to the Star Wars franchise, FN-2187, dubbed “Finn” by Resistance pilot Poe, is an otherwise nameless storm trooper who refuses to take the lives of the innocent. Growing up and being indoctrinated by the First Order before facing a command he could not in good conscience obey; Finn had spent his entire life blindly following orders. There was an awakening and Finn may not have known what he wanted to be but he knew who he didn’t want to become.
Resolving to rebel against all he had known and making the decision to take off into the unknown, brought Finn to places he never thought he would be. Making Poe a part of his escape plan set off a chain of events that brought him to his real destiny, helping Rey and BB-8 find the legendary Luke Skywalker, while finding himself traveling on the Millennium Falcon with none other than Han Solo and Chewbacca! As always the Star Wars movies give us characters to care about and to honor in cosplay!
