Star Wars Rebels Ahsoka Tano Costume

Ahsoka cosplay 1

Ahsoka Tano returned to the Star Wars universe earlier this year in the animated series Star Wars Rebels. We haven’t seen her in years; she had grown up and matured. Amanda, also known as JediManda, recently made a costume based on Ahsoka’s new look. As you can imagine, one of the most challenging parts of the project was making her headtails. Amanda spent about three weeks crafting them. She started with upholstery foam – it’s the flexible green foam you can find at more craft stores that have sewing supplies, and she traced a pattern she made from newspaper onto the headtails. She sewed the foam together by hand, and once the shape was secure, she covered the headtails with white lycra spandex. See how they come together in the tutorial:
