The new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios fully immerses fans into a world far, far away. Super fans can geek out over the over-the-top landscapes and lands of planet Batuu. They’ll cross paths with all their favorite Star Wars characters and dine on themed food and drinks. They’ll fight the evil First Order aboard the Millennium Falcon and can even design their own lightsaber. It’s like a dream come true for most Star Wars fans!
One thing fans can’t do, however, is wear the costumes of their favorite characters. Like the other Disney parks, guests under the age of 14 are not allowed to wear costumes. While this is a major bummer to many fans, it’s necessary to keep all guests safe. Disney wants to assure that its Cast Members are easily identifiable. When adult guests dress up as these same characters, it causes confusion and can create dangerous situations. If a child gets separated from their family, for instance, they need to know they can go to any costumed cast member to get help.
At Galaxy’s Edge, someone could dress up as Darth Vader or a Stormtrooper and provide incorrect or dangerous information. Not only could this ruin that guest’s vacation but could have a negative impact on all guests’ experiences.
Fortunately, fans have found a safe workaround to the costume rule. Started by a Disney blogger, Disneybounding allows you to pay homage to your favorite Disney and Star Wars characters without going into full cosplay. Instead of wearing your favorite character’s costume, you choose street clothes in the same colors, patterns and styles.
If Rey is your favorite heroine in the Star Wars saga, pair a cream-colored shirt with light-colored leggings and add a brown belt. Instead of carrying a lightsaber, find a cute lightsaber necklace or pin to wear. You could even sport her signature triple buns if your hair is long enough. It’s all about taking your favorite characters outfit and making it your own!
