It seems to me that one of the best parts of having children is putting them into costumes. Luis Linares made a trio of Jawa robes for his three kids — that’s almost enough to take control of a sandcrawler. Linares, the builder of the Hellboy meets Darth Maul costume we recently featured, made his kids into a Jawa clan. They even had glowing eyes created by LEDs. Linares modified Jason-style plastic hockey masks. He covered the holes for the eyes and added the lights and covered the front of the mask in a black material. He crafted leather pouches for all the outfits and sewed and dyed the robes using liquid Rit dye.
See a few in progress photos below and more on Luis’ Facebook page.
