This year, our family is 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!
Dad will be dressing up in a Star-Lord Halloween Costume! What would family Guardians of the Galaxy costumes be without Peter Quill himself?
The answer is nothing. The Guardians of the Galaxy would be nothing without Peter Quill, and as a family we’d be nothing without a Peter Quill Costume. You thought I was going to say Gabriel, didn’t you? Our family would be nothing without him either!
Yondu vs. Star Lord
Gabriel grew up reading these comic books and has always loved the Guardians of the Galaxy. He was so stoked when he found out they were finally making a movie with all these wacky characters!
When trying to decide which character was his favorite, he went back and forth between Yondu and Star-Lord. Ultimately he didn’t want to paint himself blue, so Star-Lord won out!
I know. Why was this even a question?
Family Guardians of the Galaxy Halloween Costumes!
The rest of the family will be dressing up in Guardians attire as follows:
Dad will be Ravager: Peter Quill, better known as Star-Lord
Big Brother will be Profane and Irreverent Bio-engineered Rocket Raccoon
Mom will be Empathetic Insectoid Being: Mantis
Big Sister will be The Most Dangerous Woman in the Universe: Gamora
Little Sister will be Flora Colossus Groot from Planet X
Yeah… we know our stuff. #SuperFans (Emojis by Aleksandar Savic)
Star-Lord Peter Quill Halloween Costume
This Star-Lord Halloween Costume is pretty easy to put together.
Everything you Need
- Ravagers Jacket
- Yeah Baby T-Shirt
- Space Blaster Gun
- Star Lord Helmet
The best Star Lord Jacket you’re going to find anywhere is from a New York based company. FJackets, which is short for Film Jackets, makes high quality clothing including cosplay costumes. Their merchandise ranges from Pokeman to Stranger Things and everything else.
We chose the Star Lord Jacket from Volume II because it’s badass.
There are no words to express how badass this jacket is.
It fits like a glove, it’s warm, it’s distressed in all the right places, and it’s sharp looking. This is my favorite jacket.

We purchased Peter Quill’s Yeah Baby Costume t-shirt, also from FJackets.
The shirt is nice the first time you wear it, but it falls apart after the first wash. You’d probably be able to come up with something nicer with a vinyl patch and an iron on. Or…, just never wash it.
Star Lord: Peter Quill Costume Extras
This same company sells pants, boots and gloves. We just opted for some standard boots and jeans from our closet, because you never really notice Star Lord wearing them.
If you want to be extra legit, check out everything they offer – including waterproof pants and a fake walkman – here.
Star Lord Helmet
When it comes to Star Lord’s helmet, you’ve got two choices.
- A plastic Star Lord helmet. This is a child’s size, but it fit fine. It’s never going to last more than one night, and you’ll have to cut out the eyes if you want to wear it to Walt Disney World.
- A polyester Star Lord helmet with lights. We didn’t try this one out, but it’s $42 freaking dollars for polyester:
True, while he doesn’t wear the helmet that often in the films, it’s so essential to who Star Lord is. He wouldn’t be Star Lord without it, heck, he wouldn’t even be alive without it.
- It’s his first line of defense
- Allows him to breathe
- Offers life support functions
- Acts as an oxygen purification system,
- Supplies back up oxygen supply
- Regulates air pressure & atmosphere
- Has built in communications technology
- Is tied to his exterior gadgets
- Provides thermal vision
- Increases his reflex time
- Protects his head
Space Blaster Guns
Star Lords Quad Blaster Guns are also an essential part of the Peter Quill costume ensemble.
There is a $200 version.
Or a $12 version.
Guess which one we chose? We picked up the same Space Blaster Guns for our little dude’s Rocket Raccoon costume as well.
Star-Lord Halloween Costume
- Ravagers Jacket: $129
- Yeah Baby Shirt: $19
- Mask: $9.73
- Space Blaster Guns: $12.68
Total Cost: $170.41
This outlaw is ready to finally figure out who is father is, and then the beat the living crap out of him!
