The Ahsoka Tano costume from KoleGoe represents fantastic value for money without sacrificing quality. This is a great place to start. Included are authentic Jedi robes, Ahsoka’s belt, gloves, and wrist guard. However, there are a few other pieces not included that are essential for an Ahsoka Tano cosplay.

Firstly, her distinctive ‘headpiece’. There are a number of options out there but we found the Ahsoka Tano costume headpiece from FirstCos to be the best quality option with the most 5-star reviews. Next, you will need a good amount of orange face and body paint, as well as white face paint for the detailing.

This look works best with a pair of knee-high boots, preferably with a more military/rugged aesthetic. Honestly, you might already have a pair of boots at home which would work perfectly well with your DIY Ahsoka costume. However, if you don’t, something like these chunky heel lace-up boots would be our suggestion.

Finally, no Ahsoka Tano costume would be complete without her dual-wielding lightsabers. We recommend getting yourself a couple of generic light-changing lightsabers with a silver hilt. Although, if you want to go the extra mile and make the best Ahsoka cosplay possible, Artsabers makes some incredible lightsabers, including authentic, aluminum Ahsoka hilts with the broadest range of color variations for the lightsaber itself.

Who is Ahsoka Tano?

Ahsoka Tano was first introduced into the main Star Wars canon as a central character in the animated series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”. Here, she serves as Anakin Skywalker’s young Jedi padawan, before his turn to the dark side.

Throughout the series she shows herself as a highly capable warrior and powerful force user, fighting in many pivotal battles alongside Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin. Ahsoka is one of the few Jedi to survive Order 66 (the top secret order designating all Jedi as traitors and calling for their immediate execution at the hands of their own clone troopers).

Ahsoka survived Order 66 with the help of her friend, Captain Rex, by fighting through an onslaught of clones. After faking her death, Ahsoka went into hiding and was largely considered just another casualty of the fallen Jedi order.

By the time Ahsoka makes a surprise appearance in “Star Wars Rebels” she has fully matured into a formidable soldier. She no longer considers herself a Jedi but continues to battle against the ruling Galactic Empire.

Since then, she has featured in “The Mandalorian”, “The Book of Boba Fett”, and now her own Disney+ series, “Ahsoka”.

Why does Ahsoka have two white lightsabers?

Ahsoka Tano’s white lightsabers represent her disillusionment with the Jedi Order and her subsequent journey toward neutrality. After leaving the Jedis with her reputation in tatters (following false accusations of terrorism and involvement in the bombing of the Jedi Temple hanger) she abandons her two original blue lightsabers.

Ahsoka constructs her new lightsaber from colorless (or pure) kyber crystals. The white color shows she has no affinity to either the Jedi or the Sith. In essence, they symbolize her balance with the force. She can therefore be considered neither ‘good’ nor ‘bad’. Instead, she operates according to her own principles, fighting for her own causes and bending the force to her individual will.

Regardless of the reason, one thing is certain: Dual-wielding white lightsabers make Ahsoka’s Star Wars costume one of the coolest and most distinctive looks from the wider canon.
