The premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens was the perfect reason to make a new costume, and many fans did just that. Holly Brooke decided to dress as Yoda for an event just before the release of the film. Rather than sculpt a mask, she figured out a way to capture the Jedi Master’s look with makeup. This is a great way to tackle the character if you want to head to the theater in costume; most movie theaters don’t permit costumes with full masks.
Holly started working on the Yoda costume about a week before it needed to be done. She sewed the dress and the robes and sculpted and painted the ears. She made a framework for the wig to hold the ears into place securely in a way that wouldn’t put too much weight on her head. She finished the look with olive face paint, green lipstick, and leggings. The result is creative, and as an added bonus, the Jedi robe works as an everyday dress.
