Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opened on May 31, 2019 and transports guests to the planet Batuu, where the adventure is yours to create. Dressing up is a great way to really feel immersed into the land, but Batuu is still a part of Disneyland and the Disneyland “no costume” rules are still in place and strictly enforced. Which begs the question, “what should I wear to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge?” So here is a helpful guide to hopefully inspire you based on 4 different Star Wars fan styles and personality types. Find yours below!
The Immersive Fan
You’ve come to Batuu for one reason, and that’s to become a part of the story. Per Disneyland’s rules, character cosplay isn’t an option, but that’s not what you’re looking for anyway. You want to be a Batuuan and that means dressing to blend in like a true native.
Get the look: Muted colors and lots of layers are all the rage on Batuu. Start by pulling out your earth tones. Try to use clothes that are flowy and asymmetrical. Finish off the look with a belt (or a few belts) or scarf. For added fun, do your hair in a funky style like space buns or asymmetrical braids.
As a fashionista, your motto is pretty much, “Why blend in, when you can stand out?” You love the spotlight and bold fashion, so wearing a disneybound of your favorite Star Wars character is a great choice for you. Contrary to what some believe, disneybounding is less about trying to look exactly like a character and more about using character inspiration within your own fashion style. You could have 5 flawless Chewbacca disneybounds standing next to each other and each one look completely different. And “different” is where you thrive!
Get the look: There are so many ways to disneybound. I like to start by thinking of the character from whom I want to pull inspiration and then looking through my closet to see what reminds me of them. For my C3PO disneybound, I pulled out all of my metallic gold (which I happen to own a
disturbing surprising amount of) and began piecing together the basis of the outfit. I’m a 90’s girl so I went with a cropped bomber jacket and mini skirt with my signature knee-high converse. Add to that the most perfect necklace from Amazon that just so happens to look like C3PO’s exposed wires, and a disneybound is born!
We’ll catch you at Star Wars Celebration picking up the latest swag. You are the ultimate Star Wars fan girl and you wear your love for the franchise on your sleeve…literally. You probably don’t have time to think too much about an outfit because you’ve got to plan out your day and make sure you have ample time to drink blue milk, build a droid, and ride Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run atleast 3 times. Lucky for you, you’ve got enough Star Wars merch to pull a perfect outfit right out of your closet.
Get the look: Now is the time to pull out your Star Wars style. Whether it’s a Porg hoodie or a “May the Force be With You” hat, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is the place to wear it. For my look, I pulled out my Star Wars 40th Anniversary jacket from Torrid that features R2D2 and C3PO on the back and paired it with my Star Wars patch jeans and a Star Wars tank. I was basically wearing Star Wars everything from head to toe and loving it!
The Casual Fan
You’ve seen all the movies, you even watched Rebels and Clone Wars… you’re just not about shouting it from the rooftops. You still want the fun of “dressing up” in theme for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, but chill and subtle is more your style.
Get the look: Look for pieces that only a fellow Star Wars fan will recognize. This particular dress was another Torrid find. I love that at first glance it just looks like a plain and simple dress, but upon closer inspection any Star Wars fan will see that there are actually tiny Millennium Falcons embroidered in to the shoulder ruffle.
No matter what your personal Star Wars style, there’s room to rock it on Batuu. I really do feel like dressing in theme adds so much to the experience and whether you’re subtle or full on Batuuan, hopefully you now have a better idea of what to wear when you visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
