    I was inspired by a costume thread here, and decided to take on the project of making a full size scale Ewok for display.

    I started with anything I could find, like a hulk mask, scraps of leather, and molding clay.

    Seeing as I don't care for Ewoks. I had friends on that Moon, man. I highly approve of this picture less thread.


    J/k, looking forward to seeing...something.

    I had to dremmel out some of the facial features to flatten the face and put in strips of scrap leather to fill it out.

    The caps of some dollar tree baby bottles for the eyes, and foam padding to widen the face a little.

    Painted the eyes, nose, and mouth, and added JUSt a little more padding to the sides to round it out....

    Teeth are carved out of scrap plastic i had from a Clone Wars Jedi Gauntlet build i did...

    Check the post after his :)

    Now, how are you going to make it blink. Because it's not an Ewok if it can't blink....occassionally...randomly from scene to scene...or not...in fact I have it on good authority from someone high up in Lucasfilm that you are not allowed to love it if it doesn't blink.

    Your sculpt though, looking good!

    The fur looks really patchy, but once you go through it with a comb and mess it all up again all the seams disapear....

    It's wearable, but only big enough for a child or someone with a really small head...lol. You can actually see through the eyes.

    Sewed the hood by hand with strips of leather for that "Ewok look", and distressed it as well. Still have to paint the ears too....

    I AM planning to do the whole body!!! I actually need to have the whole thing finished by the end of June so I can put it on display at a Con.

    Any thoughts/ideas on how to make the body are welcome!!

    After this I'm also planning to make another Ewok, a Gonk droid, a scale jawa display, and then who knows. Lol

    Re: Making a 1:1 scale ewok

    Seems like an obivious solution, but it'd be worth checking thrift stores for stuffed animals, big teddy bears etc. That'd be a good cheap way to get the body/fur. I had great luck locating a big pink bunny when I was doing my Gummo hat years ago.

    This is going to be a free-standing display right? I'd think a PVC frame bulked with duct-tape and bubble wrap...
