DIY Poe Dameron Costume Guide
In Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Poe Dameron is a human pilot for the Resistance with an incredible talent and affinity for his work. The first thing he says to Finn is the memorable line “I can fly anything” – and indeed, he certainly can. He inherited his love of flying from his mother. He is a proud member of the Resistance who once flew with the New Republic. He can appear very cocky and too sure of himself at times, but he’s a very caring person at heart who’s always ready to aid others when the need arises. Poe has many friends and at the end of the day, they’re what matters to him most of all. The Resistance just wouldn’t be the same without him!
He’s also a standout character when it comes to his appearance, making him great to dress up as for conventions and parties or anywhere else where you want to have fun. Are you ready to take flight?

How to Dress Like Poe Dameron
Poe Dameron Costume Breakdown
Poe has very dark brown wavy hair, thick eyebrows to match, and he always keeps his hair slicked down with gel. This is a simple look to do, especially if this is already your natural hair color, but you can always use dye or wear a wig if you want. Poe keeps his hair short, too. It’s not a buzz-cut or anything, but he has it short enough to fit nicely into his flight helmet. He has stubble on his face. You can use a dark eyebrow pencil to add this detail if you want.
The two most iconic pieces Poe is known to wear are his bright orange full-bodied flight suit, and his black leather pilot’s jacket. The jacket has a turned-out collar and is embroidered with a gold crest on the sleeve. He usually wears the jacket over a white shirt when off-duty. You can either buy these items or create your own ensemble using whatever fabric you’d like.
To pull off an authentic-looking Poe Dameron costume, you’ll need a helmet. Poe’s flight helmet resembles a motorcycle helmet and is gray with a red crest on the front. You can buy one at a Halloween party store, or paint an old helmet to look like Poe’s.
He wears a tan-colored inflated vest as well for safety during his space flights. This also includes a plastic rectangular box with control buttons attached. He wears a utility belt equipped with different tools, and for a fun extra project you can design your very own belt and customize it any way you want.
Poe’s boots are black and heavy-duty for functionality. His vast multitude of accessories make him extra fun as a cosplay project because you can mix and match different items for a look that’s entirely your own.
