Some incredible Rey and Kylo Ren cosplay pictures celebrate Star Wars’ Force Dyad and give “Reylo” shippers a happier ending than Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker did. Whether Rey and Kylo Ren should have had romantic feelings for each other is one of the most divisive Star Wars sequel topics. The lack of an overarching plan for the sequel trilogy made any long-term story centered on Rey and Kylo’s dynamic a lot trickier, as it was not clear whether Kylo Ren was supposed to be the main villain. Still, The Rise of Skywalker confirmed the Reylo theories with a kiss between Rey and Ben.
The Rise of Skywalker also revealed that Rey and Kylo Ren were a Force Dyad. Star Wars’ Force Dyad concept added to the saga’s theme of balance, as it established that two Force-sensitive people who share a strong connection can make each other more powerful. Rey and Kylo’s relationship in the Star Wars sequels, romantic or not, could have been better handled. However, the imagery of a Sith-like warrior and the last Jedi standing side by side makes for some amazing Star Wars fanarts and cosplays. Here are 10 Rey and Kylo Ren cosplays inspired by the Reylo ship.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi established that Rey and Kylo Ren had some sort of Force connection. In addition, The Last Jedi introduced a new Force power in Star Wars – the ability to see and speak to someone over long distances through the Force. Rey and Kylo’s Force bond scenes in The Last Jedi are often described as “Force calls,” which this Reylo cosplay shared by Kat Fox #BLACKLIVESMATTER 👿🗡 (@OKatrinaFox) hilariously recreates.
