This year our family headed to Orlando to celebrate with Mickey Mouse and Company at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party as part of our Halloween festivities. We’ll be masquerading as Guardians of the Galaxy!
FJackets is the ultimate resource for creating awesome Guardians of the Galaxy costumes, plus they sell some of the goods which makes great crossover. We used this site as a starting point. We liked a lot of their suggestions, but some of them were either way to steep, or lacked a little imagination. We took the best and swapped out the worst.
Star-Lord Halloween Costume
Dad will be dressing up in a Star-Lord Halloween Costume! What would family Guardians of the Galaxy costumes be without Peter Quill himself? Gabriel grew up reading these comicbooks and has always loved Guardians of the Galaxy. He was so stoked when he found out they were finally making a movie with all these wacky characters and as soon as I saw the premise I jumped right on the bandwagon! For his costume he went back and forth between Yondu and Star-Lord. Ultimately he didn’t want to paint himself blue, so Star-Lord won out – as he should!
This Star-Lord Halloween Costume was pretty easy to put together.
Ravagers Jacket and T-shirt
We purchased both the ravagers jacket and Quill’s Yeah Baby t-shirt from Guardians of the Galaxy 2 from FJackets. They were great to work with, and even asked for specific measurements if the available sizes wouldn’t work. We paid $130 for both the jacket and the shirt – but it’s such a cool jacket!! We knew Gabriel would wear it a lot so it was worth the cost to us. The pants, boots and gloves that you really never notice he wears however… could be substituted with items from our closet, or omitted.
The helmet the above guide suggested was another $100 purchase!! It definitely would have been nicer than plastic version we found on Amazon, but $100 for a mask that would be a one holiday purchase? No, that was just too much to justify.
After a week of trying to remold this mask, we ended up back at Spirit of Halloween to buy a hard plastic version for the same price that didn’t make his face look like he was passing through a warp zone.
There are adult and child versions of the Guardians of the Galaxy blaster guns. The adult versions creep into the $200 range! Seriously, do people pay upwards of $1000 for each costume every single year? That’s insanity. The child’s gun will do just nicely at $10 a piece.
