    Jawa costume

    Ok, I'll admit this may seem ramdom but with this new area for this I figured you can't hurt to ask.
    I have been asked to make a Jawa costume, I know the soft parts will not be an issue for me.
    But how do the eyes get done, or should I say how should I do the eyes?
    I know they seem really low as opposed to where I think eyes would set normally.
    Any ideas or has anyone tackled this before?
    Thanks for any help or ideas.

    My sister and I rigged up something that works really well using wire and one of those headband thingys women wear. I'll see if I can find some pics.

    Re: Jawa costume

    Hey, This is what I came up with last year. It maybe a little over engineered, but it worked.You can find these at Lowe's, The frames come with the battery powered LED attached to the sides. I just remounted the the lights and added the lenses.

    I registered to check out the thread if you see my name come through I just want to see the jawa thread. I've been wanting to put together a jawa statue for awhile now.

    Re: Jawa costume

    Here is a diagram I found and used for mine. As usual, I don't remember where but I still have it. If the person who made it reads this, Thanks. For the mask portion though, I sewed one up out of some black cloth material with a velcro closure in the back. I've been meaning to redo the lenses but haven't had time to.




    You can see the actual eye holes above the lighted eyes.

    That diagram is one of Chris Bartlett's designs. I did a variation on that using small orange reflectors and the LEDs drilled through them for my daughter's Jawa costume.

    Ahh yes I remember now. Thanks, Chris for the design, and you webchief for reminding me who did it. BTW... What material did you use for the robe? Is it one of those blankets?

    Re: Jawa costume

    So where is the info for the Jawa that Chris did? I must not be seeing it?
    Thanks for the pics and the diagram guys that gives me a bit more insight to this one.
    I thought the robe was made from Monks cloth?

    Re: Jawa costume

    It may be monks cloth but I thought I read somewhere that it was some kind of blanket. Then again, I've read so many things during research that it sometimes blurs together.

    His Jawa info is actually in the sandtrooper section for the time being.

    Re: Jawa costume

    Oh...No wonder, i saw nothing. Thanks still doing research myself. I went with the Monks cloth myself to simplify things right now, I have a very heavy costume load at the moment for Halloween.
    I'll check Chris's sight again.

    Re: Jawa costume

    I have a bit of a situation with the guns here. Anyone know where to find these. All the ebay sellers are out of their mind if they think I am willing to pay $88 to express ship these guns of the few I have been able to find on ebay with BIN.
    I went to walmart as per a suggestion to no avail, So I am really stuck here.
    Again looking for a bit of help... sorry and thanks,
    Christi
