About Han Solo Costume
Han Solo appears in Star Wars as distrustful and motivated purely by self-interest character. His primary mission is to gain enough money to suffice his life. Luke and Han disliked each other. After Han showed his bravery on the dead star and gained Luke’s trust and loyalty they became friends. Except for his self-interest, Han is a good man and always remained loyal to his friends and close ones.
Princess Leia Organa and Han had a romance that Star War fans loved it. Has will voluntarily sacrifice anything for his loved ones and friends. According to Leia, Han does not have patience and does not like to involve in any politics. Whenever things get hard Han runs hard from his responsibility, but then comes back to rescue his loved ones and friends after realizing it.
All the above reasons are why being Han Solo in Cosplay or wearing a Han Solo costume is worth it. Cosplay is one of the ways humans have found to show people how they feel from the inside as a person and how their personality is according to him/her and not what people think.
