The Six-Foot Jawa Will Steal Your Soul



You thought Jawas were cute, tiny bumbling con-men who trill “Utinni”? Not this one.

Behold the adult Jawa costume, which comes straight out of my nightmares and on to I’d like to see Imperial Stormtroopers try to burn this guy – he looks like he could raise his hand and summon ancient Eldritch powers to burn their faces off.

I’m not sure why a fully grown adult would want to dress as a character that has always been portrayed by little people – is a giant Artoo Deetoo coming next? – but there’s a lot I don’t understand when it comes to these things. Like Manicorns.

Oh, wait, there’s also this. You know, for kids.
