Disneybounding (Batuu-Bounding) Costume Ideas
Dressing like a character is a popular pastime for fans of all ages, and Disney World is the perfect place to show off your fandom. In fact, cosplay is encouraged, particularly at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and the Disney Star Wars hotel within Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park.
When visiting Batuu, there are a few things to remember when it comes to wardrobe. Many people choose to Disneybound as Kylo Ren, Han Solo, Rey, R2-D2, C-3PO, Ahsoka Tano, Princess Leia, the First Order, or the Resistance. This involves creating a look that resembles a citizen of Batuu. These looks can be very simple or more elaborate, according to the wearer’s preference. There are no wrong ways to be Batuu-bound, but some visitors dress roughly 75% in costume (and 25% in everyday clothes) at the Star Wars hotel and land. This ratio should be enough to convey who you are trying to portray.
Many people choose to wear cloaks and robes as they are often seen in Star Wars films. Others might don wigs, belts, headpieces, sunglasses, and lightsabers to create a more authentic look. When it comes to colors, earth tones, blacks, reds, and scarves are often seen on Batuu. Finally, visitors often dress in loose garments like linen or vests to keep cool in the heat and mimic Star Wars characters’ outfits.
You can purchase your Batuu-bounding outfit from Amazon, Etsy, Goodwill, eBay, or elsewhere. Another option is to make your own costume using items you already have in your closet. Here are a few specific examples to get you started. Please refer to our Star Wars Disneybounding at Galaxy’s Edge page for many more ideas.
