Your daughter can be a ruling figure of a galaxy far, far away with this easy DIY Princess Leia Costume Idea. The beauty of this homemade Halloween costume is that you don't need much material to make it become a reality. You can use a simple white dress or robe and some stretchy sequin material for the belt, which can be found at any craft store. What really makes this costume, though, is Leia's signature double-bun hair style which will be easy to recreate. Throw in a light saber and a trick-or-treat bag, and your daughter will be ready to show off her awesome new costume to her friends and the neighbors.

This is one of the better Leia costumes I've seen for kids. I love that it's so empowering by having her use a light saber!
