    And here is the first boot cover. There's a velcro strip along the back of the boot cover, and where the green pin is located, there will be a small patch of velcro to hold the monks cloth in place. That will help hide the edges at the back of the boot.

    Okay, so I know my eyes are a bit wonky (a little too large and a bit uneven), but here is what I have for the mask and hood, so far. Please let me know what you think!

    Thanks, Kelly! Her boot cover tutorial really helped me figure out how to make my own. I just need to repeat the process for the second boot, but like my sock-knitting habits, I am having trouble finding the motivation to finish the second one. While helping my husband find fabric for his Gunner, I found some great fabric for the overdress of my Visas Marr costume, so now I'm trying to force myself to finish the Jawa before I go back to that costume. Oh, and someone just sold me the shoes that go with Bazine Netal, so I'm itching to start on that one. I'm too easily distracted by shiny new costumes! As far as the missing "Edit" button, I think the person who granted me permission to post in this forum didn't grant me permission to edit my posts. Maybe because I don't have an approved costume? It's not a huge deal, but I would like to have the option to edit if/when I goof up.

    I'm working on it! I've been helping my hubby get his Imperial Gunner ready, since he has more events on the books than I do right now. I do not have an option for "Edit" at the bottom of my posts. Only "Quote."

    All I see is "Quote."

    Okay, I am finally getting back to work on this costume. I'm too much of a perfectionist to be rushed! Today's project: My first vinyl boot cover, using this tutorial from Firecloak Cosplay. It's been a challenge, but I'm almost done with the prototype. It's not perfect, but it should be good enough for approval. Off topic, but does anyone know how to edit posts here? I see no options for that, and I'm not sure why.
  7. Finished the jawa for My son

    That turned out very nicely. Congratulations!

    Hey, you asked for this one! I never would have imagined myself as a Jawa if it weren't for you.

    I took a break from this costume to work on quilts I want to send out for the holidays, but now I'm back at work. My husband called me last week and told me that he signed us up to do a troop "on the 14th, the day before the premiere." He forgot that the movie is coming out on the 14th here in Germany, and we already purchased tickets for one of the two English-language showings of the movie. The event is just a very short drive from the theater, but since it's a two-hour event ending at the showtime of the movie, we are only going to be able to stay for the first hour. So now I'm frantically trying to make my Jawa close enough to approvable to attend the event. Wish me luck!

    Thanks for the tips! I love the idea of using velcro to secure my sleeves to my gloves, and I have the equipment I need for the sound system I want to make. Just need the time to work on everything.

    Wow! I no longer feel weird about being only 6'1" and trooping as a Jawa! (Also, sorry about inadvertently "stealing" your user name.)
  13. Giant Jawa Build Thread

    Welcome! Always nice to have followers. While you're waiting for the monk's cloth, maybe you can work on other parts of your costume. The actual sewing doesn't take terribly long (I was done within a few hours), but the mask and bandolier are slowing me down at the moment. I'm too much of a perfectionist for my own good!
  14. Jawa with glasses/Build thread

    I am going to use this as my mask: https://www.amazon.com/SKLZ-Shield-Full-Face-Protection-Softball/dp/B01D0UPWLI It's designed for softball, but it's comfortable and has plenty of ventilation. I'm an adult female of your height and weight, and I wear the "Youth: Small/Medium" size. I can easily wear my glasses under it. I will be adding pipe insulation material, metal washers, and magnets to attach my LED globe eyes to the frame (see my build thread for more detail, I'll be adding photos in the next day or two). I hope this helps!

    Good luck getting everything done in time for your convention! I like the idea of boot covers. I've been considering the same for mine, just because I don't want to "ruin" a perfectly good pair of boots. If you get that to work, please share how you did it. I also like the crossed bandolier look, but at this point, I'm just trying to get approved. I'll add extra stuff later.
