Tusken Raider costume


Sr Member
I posted the mask a while back and I just found a photo of the whole costume.

I seem to remember the costume looking better than this but I guess it's not ba for a 12-year-old.

I kinda look like a "Special" Sandperson who has to ride the "Short Bantha". Look. He's not even allowed to carry a real Gaderffi Stick. They gave him a broom handle and he doesn't know the difference....awwwww.

Wh-what did you use for the eyes? Toilet paper rolls? :lol

Okay, I know they're probably rolls from kitchen paper towels. But I still had to say it. :p

And you know, that's not a bad Tusken Raider for a 12-year-old at all. Better than I could have done. Was it just for fun around the house, or did you wear it to conventions or on Halloween?

Thanks for sharing. :thumbsup

You should have seen my Obi-wan costume I did in 78. Too bad it wasn't to my liking so I never let Mom take pix of it.

Hey, you use what you got when you're young.

My mom made me a stormtrooper in '81 out of the Ben Cooper plastic mask and a pair of white longjohns. :lol
She drew all the details on the LJs with black magic marker. I gott try and dig that photo out.

Sadly, it's better than some who have tried to join The Krayt Clan... :lol

I was just looking at this thread yesterday and I'm pretty impressed. Considering what it was made of it doesn't look bad at all.

It's a lot better than the ruled-paper-and-Scotch-Tape Vader lid I attempted in late '77. :D
