About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I followed a Simplicity patten from Joanns and bought faux fur fabric in dark brown. I made the jump suit and added a zipper in front for ease of access. I may boot covers and mittens from the fur as well. I'm planning on buying some later fingers and toes to add to Wicket's feet and hands so that its more realistic and matches the actual character.
The face is fur with the eyes cut out and glued to a half mask. The nose, mouth, and teeth are made from fimo clay. the teeth are painted with antique white for a more realistic finish. The eyes are the containers from the $0.50 machine from kroger. I added window tint for the darkness. (i need to find flexible tint instead/or spray if they have it. this will sit better on the eyes) The head itself is made from the pattern mentioned above. I will be redoing the head though: instead of the half mask to hold everything together I found my old fencing mask which will keep the fur and hood and everything off of my face. I dont enjoy eating shedded fur and the fumes from glue is not fun either.
I'm working on a venting system since it gets so hot in this costume.
I also bought what looked like a faux leahter fabric (this was to be for Wicket's hood. I slipped this over the head and cut 3 holes. two for his ears to stick thru and one for his face to stick out. (i need to recut this hood because it was way to big!
I found a stick in the yard for Wicket's spear/walking stick. I made a fimo clay arrow head/hatchet piece which i tied with twine to the stick. I also used leather strips to add feather and beads for some decoration to the prop.
Onto of Wicket's head I added some beads and feathers for more decoration :)
- Personal Thoughts:
- I;m in love with ewoks!!! I'm super stoked to announce that I created my ewok in just 3 days. This was a very last minute outfit but I couldn't pass it up. My friend went as a jawa and I've been wanting to do an ewok since as long as I can remember. So I did. :)
