At the time Disney acquired the Star Wars brand, it was already a huge success, featuring Star Wars toys, merchandise, and clothing … and maybe a movie or two. So when Disney announced The Mandalorian, which is a new story arc in the Star Wars world, as one of its keystone shows on the new streaming Disney+ service, the company probably knew it was going to have a relatively popular show on its hands. Popular enough to warrant many new Halloween costumes.
Then Baby Yoda happened.
Baby Yoda elicited a viral response that even mighty Disney could not have predicted (but let’s be real, they probably did). Baby Yoda toys and collectibles were not ready for the response, creating a shortage that just drove demand higher and leaving Disney playing catch-up. Hell, Disney even green-lighted a Baby Yoda Chia Pet.
With the second season of The Mandalorian set to begin around Halloween, the frenzy is sure to restart soon. So why not get ahead of the game this time and use our list of the best Mandalorian costumes for Halloween to be prepared to be the star of any party or costume contest? (Yes, we have multiple Baby Yoda costumes in our list. No, we didn’t only list Baby Yoda costumes. Sorry.)
See? We promised you a Baby Yoda costume, and we delivered immediately. You’re welcome. (Hint: There are more coming.)
This particular Baby Yoda has sizes for newborns to 2-year-old toddlers and everyone in between. It includes the bodysuit and a beanie. It fits like a onesie with inseam snaps at the bottom for easy access to the diaper.
The entire costume is soft, which is great for Baby’s delicate skin (and for your delicate skin if you’re having to carry the baby around for the entire night).
This Baby Yoda toddler costume is so cute, that neighbors and friends are sure to give the baby an extra treat. This means your older kids may even want to trick-or-treat with their tiny sibling in hopes of scoring a few extra treats for themselves. (And if your inner-voice is telling you that this is not a life lesson you want to teach them, go ahead and ignore it. In a few years, all you’ll remember is that the older kids included the baby in an activity. Ahh, memories.)
For tiny babies 6 months and younger, this Baby Yoda costume may be even cuter than the first one.
This is a hand woven costume, featuring 100% cotton, so it’s okay for Baby’s skin. It ships with the hat (with attached Yoda ears), the wrap, a belt, and green hands and feet. The crochet pattern delivers plenty of warmth for the baby on a cool Halloween night.
For parents who are fans of Star Wars and The Mandalorian, this costume might be just the outfit for a set of first baby pictures. (Maybe to keep peace in the family, you had better use the christening gown your mother-in-law bought first, and then switch to this outfit later for some fun photos.)
When it’s time for the kid to graduate high school 18 years down the road, and the school wants cute baby photos for the slideshow, you’ll have yours taken care of. No one in the slideshow will be as cute or hip as your Baby Yoda baby. (And we don’t want to hear any doubt about whether Baby Yoda will still be a worldwide phenomenon in 18 years. That’s blasphemy.)
Okay, okay. We know. Not everyone watches The Mandalorian because of Baby Yoda’s cuteness. (We haven’t met any of those people yet, but we’re sure that they exist.)
Maybe a costume for one of the non-Baby Yoda Mandalorian characters is more in line with what your kids enjoy about the show, such as a bounty hunter. This Star Wars costume includes the body suit, cape, ammunition belt, and helmet mask, which has an eye screen. The metallic guards are simulated, meaning they’re made of a soft fabric like the remainder of the body suit.
This costume is an excellent choice, providing multiple children’s sizes. The back seam stretches just a little bit, using hook and loop closures, so you can tighten or loosen the fit until it’s just right.
Here’s another option for a Mandalorian costume, featuring the bounty hunter, Din Djarin. This costume has an impressive look, included the padded jumpsuit, the bandolier, a cape, a belt, and the mask. It is long- sleeved and consists of polyester fabric, so it’s a little warmer than some other Halloween costumes if the nights are cool.
This costume is available in sizes ranging from small to extra large, so children from toddlers to pre-teens will find a size that fits properly. (The prop gun shown in the picture is sold separately.)
Now if it doesn’t feel right to have the Din Djarin character without having it carry the Baby Yoda, we have you covered. Skip ahead to the next product.
For some people, entering Halloween costume contests is the perfect side hustle. Each year, they come up with just the right tweak to the costume to deliver the victory and the prize money … or at least the admiration of cosplay geeks for another year.
This year, the winning tweak for any Star Wars- related costume is almost certainly going to be this Baby Yoda on-shoulder costume accessory.
Baby Yoda attaches to the shoulder of any costume using an elastic band that wraps around the upper body and keeps the figurine in place. If you wear a dark colored costume, you’ll barely notice the elastic band.
This Baby Yoda is several inches tall, so it’ll look perfect on the shoulder of any adult Mandalorian costume or on an older child’s costume. Thank us later when you’re counting your prize money.
All kids have a slightly evil side, as any parent knows. Whether the toddler learns how to take off the diaper and smear it all over the wall, the 5-year-old hides the crusts of PB&J under the couch until there’s an ant parade entering your home, or the 7-year-old decides he’s making breakfast in bed for Mother’s Day, and you spend the entire day cleaning raw eggs out of the toaster, these are definitely evil acts … even if the kid didn’t mean to be evil.
So maybe give the youngster a chance to pretend to be evil with this stormtrooper costume, hopefully negating the unintended evil behaviors elsewhere.
It’s true that stormtroopers don’t have the biggest roles on The Mandolarian, but they’re a key villain in nearly any story line involving Star Wars. This costume has all of the parts you’ll need to fill out the stormtrooper costume, including the bodysuit, helmet mask, belt, and shoulder pauldrons. The mask consists of a hard plastic with mesh for the eyes and mouth, but the rest of the suit is made of soft fabric.
It’s available in sizes for toddlers up to pre-teens.
Adults don’t have to be left out of the costume game when it comes to The Mandalorian. This costume showcases a bounty hunter from the world of The Mandalorian, providing a great look.
(Before you ask, no, we did not find a Baby Yoda costume for adults. To be fair, we didn’t look all that hard. Too creepy … and not a Halloween fun kind of creepy.)
It uses a multitude of fabrics, including leather and canvas, which contributes to the realistic look for this character. (You do have to purchase the helmet separately.) This costume works equally well for Halloween parties or for cosplay.
There are both men’s and women’s versions of this costume, and several sizes are available, so you can find the perfect fit.
When pets are part of the family, they deserve to dress up for Halloween, too. (Just think of all of the likes you’ve awarded during past Halloweens on social media for other people’s pet costumes. No one can resist cute babies and cute animals.)
Now if you turn your dog into Baby Yoda for Halloween, you can combine a baby and a pet in one photo. Guaranteed winner on social media. (Hopefully you don’t break Facebook and Twitter with the sudden rush of traffic, but we will not make any promises.)
This pet costume is available in four different sizes, so no matter how big your dog or cat is, you can find a Baby Yoda pet costume that fits. The costume consists of a robe, a faux fur collar, and fake Baby Yoda hands holding a frog.
And if your dog would rather chew the costume than wear it, no worries, as the costume uses safe materials that are made in the United States.
If your kid already has his or her heart set on a ghost, a cheerleader, or another great Halloween costume, we understand. Just keep this story in mind for next Halloween, and you can put off being the coolest parent in the neighborhood until next year. Or if you need some non-Halloween gift ideas, we have many other interesting kids gear buying guides to help you find something you cannot resist. (Fair warning: None of them will have anything as cute as a Baby Yoda, but then again, what is?)
