Make Your Own Star Wars Jyn Erso Halloween Costume

Updated on September 21, 2019

Star Wars Jyn Erso Is A Great DIY Halloween Costume Idea


Jyn Erso, played by Felicity Jones in Star Wars: Rogue One has the strength of the Force in her. She is the newest female hero fighting the against the Galactic Empire. Her story is a rather sad one, but she is courageous and strong...everything we have come to admire in the Jedi and resistance fighters in the other Star Wars films. Like Princess Leia or Rey before her, Jyn thinks of others before herself and puts her cause first. Even when it means capture or even death at the hands of the Imperial forces. Jyn Erso is the ladies choice for the best Star Wars costume this Halloween.

"Jyn, whatever I do, I do it to protect you. Say you understand."

"I understand."

— Galen & Jyn Erso

Last Minute, Homemade, Star Wars Jyn Erso Costume


Jyn Erso lived with her parents, Galen and Lyra. Her father was a scientist working for the Empire. When he realized his project was going to be turned into a super weapon, Galin went into hiding with his family. Some years later they were found out, but Galen had prepared for this day. He build a shelter to hide his wife and daughter. They were on the way there when Lyra turned around to help her husband. She sent young Jyn on alone. Jyn did not go directly to the shelter. She watched as her mother was killed and her father taken prisoner. She then ran to the shelter and hid until a friend of her father's, Saw Gerrera, came to rescue her. Miss Erso is a real survivor.

Left on her own at 16, Jyn mastered fighting skills and could pretty much take care of herself...until she landed in a prison. And that's where the rebels found her. One thing I forgot to mention, her father asked her to please remember he was doing everything to protect no matter what rumors she heard, she knew he was a good man. His nickname for her was Stardust.

Jyn Erso Costume Clothing & Accessories


To make your own Jyn Erso Halloween costume you will need:

  • A Brown Vest - perhaps a cargo vest with pockets

Star Wars Rogue One - How To Make A Jyn Erso Costume


Jyn has a rebellious streak but she knows right from wrong, lessons her loving and good parents taught her. She had no interest in the rebellion, at least not until she saw a hologram message of her father. She saw that he deeply believed in the rebellion and thought the fight against the Galactic Empire was important. He was so passionate about it, his holographic image won her over to the resistance.

Rogue One Jyn Erso Costume Jacket


You might have your own jacket that looks like this and decide to wear it instead of a vest, so you won't have to buy a new one. If you don't have the jacket or a vest and do not want to spend a lot of money, check out your local thrift and consignment shops for one. These stores usually sell used merchandise at a low cost and they are the perfect place to search for your costume needs if you don't have what you need in your own closet.

Easy fit jeans will be perfect for your homemade costume pants. Why? Because that's what Felicity Jones wore when she was filming the movie. Why not, jeans are comfortable and I bet you've got the perfect pair right in your drawer or closet.

Scarf Ideas For Your Jyn Erso Costume


Jyn's Costume Scarf

The scarf worn by Jyn Erso wrapped around her head and crossed at the front with long tails thrown over her shoulders and hanging down her back...but you will need yards of material to make one. An infinity scarf will work just as well and you will probably want to keep this scarf and wear it during the winter.

Gloves For Your Jyn Erso Costume

Jyn's gloves are black leather and fingerless. You can buy leather replicas or you can use an old pair and cut the fingers can also use a black pair of stretch gloves you find all over during the winter for a few dollars. You will have to cut the fingers off to get the same look as in Rogue One. These may ravel so you might only get one wear out of the cheap ones.

DIY Kyber Crystal Necklace For Your Jyn Erso Costume


Jenuine Mom made this gorgeous necklace herself and here's what she used to make it:

  • E6000 Clear Craft Adhesive
  • 2 Gold Jump Rings (6mm)
  • Gold Wire (26 gauge)
  • 2 Gold Hook & Eye Clasps
  • Black Cord (2mm thick - 1 yard long)
  • Needle Nose Pliers
  • Side Cutters
  • DecoArt Metallic Gold Acrylic Paint
  • Tape
  • Scissors

Kyber Crystals were used to make lightsabers by the Jedi and the Sith. These beautiful crystals were called the water of the Kyber by the Jedi. When a young Jedi went to find his or her crystal it is said that the crystal chose them. It would become warm to the touch and the person the crystal chose would hear it's music and feel the harmony...and would bond with it.
