Star Wars’ Rey Cosplay

Happy Halloween!! This year I stayed home to hand out candy to trick-or-treaters (and maybe eat all some of the candy myself) but I wore my new Rey costume from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

If you’ve never heard the term cosplay it’s basically dressing up like a character either from a book, movie, tv show, comic, video game, etc. It’s like Halloween for geeks all year round. I’ve been slowly making historical costumes on the side but this is something pretty different and I’ve never done it before. I thought to get started I ought to try something “easy”…
