In my mind, Kylo Ren and Captain Phasma are power couple of the latest Star Wars trilogy. Although, they weren’t meant to live happily ever after considering Phasma’s demise in The Last Jedi. But, none the less Phasma was on my short list of new costumes this year.
Once Star Wars was determined as the theme for this year’s group costume, I struggled to decide on my character. I made a list of the female leads: Rey, Leia, Padme, Ahsoka Tano, Jyn… but I didn’t feel connected enough to any of them to develop a costume. Then I remembered Phasma and immediately started planning my costume.
She’s not my usual style of costume, but I love her strong character. Captain Phasma is the commander of the First Order’s stormtroopers. She’s a tough veteran commander, feminine (in her own way), and sassy. She’s also the only blonde lead in the Star Wars franchise!
Of course, once I selected Captain Phasma for my character I had to cast Jerad as Kylo Ren and Clark as Bark Vader. You could say the First Order is strong with us this Halloween! It helps that I purchased the Kylo Ren costume on clearance last year on Orange Thursday.
Bark Vader was an unwilling participant in our photoshoot, I think he was meant to be a Jedi.
