Halloween’s Most Lethal Hunter: Boba Fett

Would you do nearly anything for the right price?
Are you fiercely independent and enjoy the solitude of working alone?
Do you hate most people, especially smugglers?
Would you like to attain unparalleled infamy for your lethal deeds?

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you may want to portray Boba Fett this Halloween. Check out these adventure-seeking retro costumers…


Yes, Boba Fett is perhaps the most infamous bounty hunter in the galaxy, but did you know that he is also an active member of the Black Panther Party?

The best bounty hunters are very well armed and know the tricks of ambush and assault. This Boba is stalking his prey that hides in the banana plant behind the garden hose. There is surely no escape for his quarry.

Infamous and anonymous at the same time, Boba Fett is one of the most effective mercenaries for hire. His secret weapon? Rain boots. Star Wars weather forecast: Rainy with a chance of death by Lightsaber. Looks like this Boba will be prepared.

Boba Fett’s path lies along the edge—the stakes are always high—and the road only leads two places, to a life with unlimited Halloween candy…or to a disgraceful demise. You’d better believe that this Boba is going to get his candy.

Boba Fett - Halloween 1980


Earning a death mark from the Empire means a life spent in dread, constantly looking over one’s shoulder. Having been hunted down by not one, but two Boba Fetts, it looks like Cookie Monster’s time is up.

    When I see some of these old photos, I often think, “that could be me!” I thought that about the Fett near the banana plant – but only because of the house’s exterior. I never had a Boba Fett costume remotely that awesome.

    Terrific pics of the elusive Fett, Metagirl!

    I’m totally digging the full-headed and detailed Boba mask in the fourth pic.
    Easier to remain anonymous while hunting scoundrels across the galaxy.

    But what I really really want is that Cookie Monster attire.
    Please let them make ’em Square-sized!

    I need new jammies.

  3. @AAS are you really square shaped? Perhaps you could find a Cookie Monster bed sheet and wrap yourself in that…though I suppose that’s more of a rectangle than a square.
