Did you know that Oriental Trading sells Halloween costumes? I had no clue. Since seeing The Force Awakens, Reed has been dead set on being Chewbacca for Halloween this year. All of the costumes we could find just didn’t meet his expectations. I had looked everywhere online and in stores and was pretty sure he was going to have to switch to Darth Vader or some other Star Wars character. When I was contacted about this post, I told Reed we would check on Oriental Trading but if they didn’t have one, he was going to have to pick something else. But guess what? They had a Chewbacca costume and he loves it!
As a DIY-er, I love making his costume. But that was easier when he was little and I got to pick out what he was going to be. If I had tried to sew my own Chewbacca costume, I would have probably gone ballistic.
Oriental Trading has over 3200 costumes to choose from! And they are reasonably priced. Those local pop up stores around Halloween always seems to nickel and dime you for every last detail.
What I love about this costume is the quality. All of the ones we found online looked cheap. This costume is well sewn. The fur looks real. And the plastic components are so realistic! And check out the back! His underclothes are covered and it looks nice.
Reed has been having a blast playing dress up in it! My husband has even made him a “bowcaster”. (I’m told that Chewie always carries a bowcaster.)
You can mix and match the components of the costumes to create your own unique look!
So what are you going to be? Wonder Woman? The Joker? A ninja?
The possibilities are endless.
I’d love for you to pin this image!
