The great bounty hunter Boba Fett is one of the most amazing and mysterious characters in the Star Wars universe, but that’s precisely what makes him such a good costume idea.

19. Jawa Costume
If you really want to stand out as a Star Wars fan, going for the more underrated characters is one way of leaving your mark this Halloween.

And what’s Halloween without a little confusion?
20. Jabba the Hutt Costume
Not all baddies need to be charismatic. Sometimes, they’re just Jabba the Hutt – disgusting, terrifying, and yet strangely fascinating.
