DIY Rey Halloween Costume and Hair Tutorial (Star Wars) | Photo credit: Katrina Turnbull of ouicestchic.com
This is going to be a very special Halloween for my family this year because we are celebrating my son’s first birthday! My due date with him was actually October 31st. Although I didn’t end up having a Halloween baby, his birthday is still close enough to have a Halloween birthday party!
Our plan for this year is to do a family Star Wars costume. With the latest instalment, I decided to go as Rey (pictured above), my husband as Po Dameron, my toddler as Kylo Ren, and my younger son as BB-8. He’s not quite walking yet, so it’s the perfect costume to add wheels and a handle to and push him about.
I went to Value Village to find our costumes. In this post, I will be showing you how I created Rey’s desert costume for $35 using all secondhand clothing. Now Value Village offers brand new and exclusive costumes (as well as used one too), but it’s always been my preference to scour the racks of pre-loved clothing to put together my Halloween costumes.

Rey’s costume is pretty simple and low-maintenance. The more tattered and scuffed up the better. She has been living in the desert after all.

Pretty sweet for $35, huh?

For Rey’s staff, I just used an old broom stick I had lying around. Simple but it does the trick.
