Adult Jawa Costume
The Jawas are a scrappy race of nomads native to Tatooine. They’re enthusiastic scavengers and are always the first to be found at any shipwreck on their homeworld’s inhospitable surface. They harvest scrap from spaceships, landspeeders, podracers, and even droids hapless enough to fall into their prying hands. Only three feet tall, the Jawas are rather defenseless against the raging sandstorms and marauding Tusken raiders that plague their lands.
What they lack in physical prowess, however, they make up for with sheer cleverness. They save the best parts they scavenge for themselves, constructing behemoth sandcrawlers they can use to safely scour the desert for treasures. They contrived such a complicated language, Jawaese, that even a protocol droid can’t figure out what they’re saying to one another thanks to the language’s incorporation of odors into its syntax. Jawas only deign to speak to outsiders in Jawa Trade Talk, a dumbed down version of their mother tongue which they use to sell goods to (and hopefully take advantage of) outsiders. They’re very secretive creatures -- nowhere, either on film or behind the scenes, has anyone seen what’s going on under the Jawas’ hoods save for those two glowing, mysterious eyes.
Fans of Star Wars all know and love the enigmatic Jawas, one of the first alien species ever to appear in the films’ extended universe. If you want to pay tribute to the spooky and cute little traders, look no further than our officially licensed Jawa Costume, complete with battery powered glowing eyes. You might be a little short for a stormtrooper, and you might be a little tall for a Jawa, but hey -- what the heck, right?
