Now that huge numbers of people have seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens and seen it multiple times, Kylo Ren and Rey costumes are showing up all over the web. Several cosplayers replicated the outfits based on teasers and posters, but with the movie here and more references available, even more cosplayers have taken on the task of making the hero and villain costumes from the film. I’ve seen so many fantastic examples, a couple of which are in this week’s Cosplay Friday.
I also came across a kid dressed as Matt the radar technician. The character appeared in the Adam Driver-hosted episode of Saturday Night Live during a sketch parodying Undercover Boss. The youngling met Kylo Ren at Disney Parks, and it’s the cutest thing I’ve seen this week.
