Voices of the Syndicate: What Star Wars Cosplay Would You Choose?

As today is the fabled May the Fourth we thought we would go with a Star Wars themed question. We asked the GS team to tell us what two star wars character would they love to cosplay as and this was what they had to say!

Too many choices!
First choice would be Alderaan Leia. She’s so gutsy and I want the cinnamon whirl hair do. Leia is a super cool princess every girl should look up to as a role model.
Second would be Chewie because he’s the perfect sidekick and one of the most recognisable characters ever.
Either would be fun costumes to make and Chewie especially would be very challenging! Maybe I’ll have a Star Wars theme for the next con I cosplay at…

Hm… well with my colour hair (head and beard), no. 1 would have to be Count Dooku… and he does wear some pretty natty & flamboyant threads!

No 2. has to be Han – nothing beats a waist coat and a belt holster!


Star Wars is the ultimate Sci Film and also the ultimate cosplay because there are a million possibilities to choose. For me my first choice would be a Stormtrooper. I know this could be seen as boring and plain but no one knows who you really are and you can just saty the lines “these are not the droids we are looking for”. So much freedom to be cruel as well.

I guess my second choice would have to be Darth Maul because love him or hate there is no denying that he looks cool and that make up is just amazing. People will always want a picture with that Sith lord.

Sadly, the Star Wars universe seems light on cosplay options for balding 40-something unless you’re going for a full uniform rather than a character. I’m not a natural cos-player, i fear, and “old, podgy Han” isn’t something anyone wants to see. 🙂

All that said, I do like the half-robe, half-armour look that gave Obi-Wan in the Clone Wars series, and would wear that. For the other case, and going back to the Original Trilogy, I’d have to go for a X-Wing Pilots uniform, because they’re so damn cool.

I don’t really do cosplay. It doesn’t really feel ‘me’. If I did do it I would maybe go for Han Solo or C3PO.


Any two Star Wars Characters? That’s a lot of choice for those of us immersed in the Expanded Universe! Although since that material is pretty much being written off … Moving on to choices:

Choice 1: As a child, I was fascinated with the X-wing and Snowspeeder battles in Star Wars and so it’s been a long-standing desire of mine to put together a proper Alliance to Restore the Republic pilot outfit. No specific character, though if you pushed me and I could grow a mustache I’d go for Biggs (love the checkerboard design of his helmet) or Wedge – the only non-main character to survive all three original trilogy films and who went on to star in books, comics and games under his own steam. So let’s say Wedge.

Choice 2: For the bad guys in Star Wars, it’s all about the Armour. When I played Star Wars Galaxies, my big lumbering Twi’lek served in the Imperial Army. He went around in Scout Trooper Armour. The reason? NOTHING is cooler than Scout Trooper armour. Despite being in White armour in a dense forest and wearing a helmet with restrictive vision, there’s just something right about the whole get up.

GS Moment – Starship Troopers. How could there not even be a mention of one of my favourite movies of all time, Starship Troopers? I think it still holds the record for the movie I saw the most in the theatre. “This is for you new people. I only have one rule. Everyone fights, no one quits. You don’t do your job, I’ll shoot you. You get me? Welcome to the Roughnecks” “C’mon you apes, you wanna live forever?”

Jabba…because I have the girth and then Ackbar because I could run around screaming ‘IT’S A TRAP!

In my head I would always be Chewbacca. Hands down the best character in the Star Wars universe – loyal, brave and cuddly! Wookiees are exceptional!

In reality, since I’m only wee it would be much more lifelike if I were an Ewok as I’m about the right size!

I cosplay every morning dressed as Obi Wan (with a Jedi dressing gown) – I like to think of myself as old and wise (Obi Wan) while being grumpy and without a clue what is going on (Alec Guinness).

I’m also a balding 40-something but I would 100% go for Han, because I always shoot first.

For me it is Chewbacca (and give my height a pretty short version wookie) because I would love to be in the ceremony scene of Star wars so I could kick off about my lack of medal. Also Chewie made satchels cool even before Indiana Jones did so how can you not want a piece of that cosplay action?

As someone who loves the cold and snow I have always loved Han’s Hoth outfit at the start of Empire Strikes Back so I would love to hit a winter convention in that costume. Trust me if a company bring that costume out to buy I am all over it like a cheap Jawa!

We hope you enjoyed this weeks voices.What would your Star Wars cosplay choices be? Let us know in the comments section.
