With all the recent popularity of Star Wars The Force Awakens, it’s a safe bet that Rey’s costume from the movie will be a favorite among all ages. Even before the movie was released, people were frantically researching the costume and props used on this leading heroine. And I was one of them! Having not worn a costume in over a decade I looked to online resources for all the information I could find. This is a compilation of what I found and how I created my own Star Wars Rey costume.
As promised, here is the second installment in the Star Wars Rey Costume series. As mentioned in Part 1 of the series, I originally intended to have the costume completed in time for Halloween but again, due to time constraints, I wasn’t able to create the proper shirt. Instead I used a shirt purchased locally and weathered it with a mixture of dirt and paint. While it was an inexpensive option that required very little work, several details were missing. This became even more obvious after Star Wars The Force Awakens was released so I decided to start from scratch with a new shirt.
