I made this Ewok Costume out of stuff from around the house and a few things from the craft and thrift store. I know Wicket wasnt as tall as me... but with the ears on, im a towering 6'4" Ewok. I came across the fur body suit at a thrift store for $6... so i figured... heck... guess I better make something.
Step 1: Ewok Mask
- i used a formed cardboard mask from the craft store for the base
- molded parts out of Skulpy and baked them in a toaster oven
- Areas around eyes
- used lenses from old aviator sunglasses for the eyes of the mask
- Spray pained the lenses after masking the pupil with a round sticker
- used a cheap fur werewolf mask from the dollar store for the fur
- Hot glued it all the pieces and fur to the cardboard mask
- Painted the clay features with acrylic paint
Step 2: Ewok Gloves
Making Ewok Gloves was super easy
- Spray paint the gloves brown
- Hot glue 3 strips of faux fur to the back of the hand. I found this fur with wire inside of it that came in a roll. It was not a sheet of fur
- i then touched up the paint with some acrylic giving the detail of fingernails.
Step 3: Ewok Shoes or Feet
Making Ewok Feet was also pretty easy.
- Using gorilla tape and rolled up paper, i formed some toes and toe nails to the top front of some old Crock shoes i had.
- I hit with a couple coats of spray paint to get the overall tone right
- A couple lines of hot glue made for some texture for the toe knuckles and nails
- a bit of acrylic paint to get the nails and toes just right
- Hot glue 2 strips of faux fur to the top of the foot.
there you have it.... size 11 ewok feet.
Step 4: Ewok Hood
This part was a bit tricky. I just sort of free-formed as i went without a pattern.
- I started with a $1 army helmet from the thrift store for the base. Without it, my head was to small for the ewok body.
- Drape suede leather over the helmet
- cut a face circle opening... not to big, it hangs lower then you might think
- Cut leather stitching from the suede and stitch it together... and hot glue to the helmet.
- make ears with the wire form fir strip. I drilled holes in the helmet so it was mounted securely.
- Hang some decor like feathers and beads
Step 5: Ewok Staff - Spear - Ceremonial Rod
This part is kind of fun to get creative with. I dont think there is wrong way to do it. Make a spear, ceremonial rod, staff, weapon.. whatever.
- Cut a walking staff from a tree... i got this out of the cottonwood trees in the background
- Carve the bark off of the branch
- I attached some antelope horns with a screw and covered with some leather straping
- hang a couple feathers and beads... perhaps a bird skull
