Han Solo Cosplay Costumes
A classic cosplay character, Star Wars leading man Han Solo has been represented since his introduction in the late 70s. A relatively simple ensemble, a long sleeved white henley tee, and black vest is a great start. You can keep it simple with black pants and shoes but if you’re a diehard fan and happen to have some knee high black boots, go for it! An old school brown leather belt holster and a faux blaster and you’ll be ready to pilot the Millennium Falcon!
Finding characters to add to a group cosplay is almost too easy with this film. Han’s sidekick and co-pilot, Chewbacca immediately comes to mind. There is Leia, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda and of course Luke Skywalker! If you’re a creative type, why not intermingle characters from both the prequels and sequels? As long as Geroge Lucas is breathing, we can count on more characters to be added to our cosplay choices. Take a gander at our featured pics for more fun ideas and send in your own!
About Han Solo
When we were first introduced to Han Solo, he didn’t come off as much of a hero. Hailing from Corellia, he is a bit of a loner, keeps to himself especially when breaking the law. To go from a self-serving smuggler to rebel hero in the span of one movie is a testament to Harrison Ford’s acting chops. Han’s trusted companion and wingman Chewbacca lends a bit a humanity to his character. The love and respect between the two of them help viewers to see a softer side of Mr. Solo.
When it comes to the ladies, Han is more than a little cocky. He meets his match in Leia as she is not one to take orders or put up with his attitude. The two of them form a relationship that spans the ages, most recently played out in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, released in 2015. While Hans loses his life in this last film, fans have little doubt he will resurface in true Han Solo form.
