You, your friends and your family members can pay homage the greatest science fiction story of all time by wearing Star Wars costumes on Halloween. When it comes to choosing Star Wars costumes, a lot of people immediately opt for dressing up like Anakin or Luke Skywalker. While these men are intriguing characters, they are not the true heroes of Star Wars. As the Grand Master of the Jedi Council, Yoda inspires others to fight for justice. It should come as no surprise that Yoda was voted 25th greatest movie character of all time in Empire Magazine. Clearly, Yoda is an important part of the Star Wars series, which is why, this year a Yoda Halloween costume is perfect for the Star Wars enthusiast.
Yoda appears in several Star Wars films, including “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi.” He may be short in stature, but he certainly makes up for that in his abilities as a Jedi Master. Yoda is responsible for training Luke Skywalker to fight against the Galactic Empire. In addition to training Luke Skywalker in the ways of fighting, Yoda shares important words of wisdom that will serve as later inspiration.
If you love mysterious things, the Star Wars Yoda Halloween costume is based on a character whose background remains unknown throughout the series. Although George Lucas originally planned to give Yoda a full name, he decided that it would be more effective to keep him shrouded in mystery. His species and home-world are never revealed. What the audience does know about Yoda is that he is relentless in the fight for justice.
Yoda has a strong presence in Star Wars which is another reason why the Yoda costume is a good choice for Halloween. Although small on stature, Yoda is big on significance. During his initial appearance in “The Empire Strikes Back,” Yoda is presented as a rather comical character. Later, the audience learns that this is an act, intended to reveal the flaws in Luke’s character. Although initially reluctant, Yoda agrees to train Luke Skywalker in the ways of the Force. In “Return of the Jedi,” Luke Skywalker completes his training, and Yoda dies peacefully.
Yoda also shows up in the Star Wars prequel trilogy films. In “The Phantom Menace” Yoda decides to deny Qui-Gon Jinn‘s request to train Anakin Skywalker as the “Chosen One.” But after Qui-Gon is mortally wounded, Yoda agrees to allow Anakin to train under Obi-Wan. During “Attack of the Clones,” Yoda leads the Jedi army in an epic battle scene. During this battle, Yoda duels with the Sith Lord Count Dooku. Yoda’s final appearance is in “Revenge of the Sith,” in which he leads the Jedi Council and hides the Skywalker children from Darth Vader.
Yoda Halloween costumes work best on kids, since Yoda is so short. In fact, one of the best selling Yoda costumes is made for infants and toddlers. A good Yoda costume will have a pale green mask with pointy ears, as well as a long robe with a sash. Since Yoda and human hands don’t mix, you will want to invest in a good pair of latex hands for your little Yoda. And of course, a good lightsaber is the essential weapon for any Jedi Master. With the perfect Yoda costume, your child will be one with the Force on Halloween night!
