I made the mask back in July and ended up making the rest of the costume for use this Halloween. The Gaffi Stick is 11 pieces total, and is all wood and metal, and lots of Dremel work.

I figured I would share this here for any fellow Star Wars geeks.

    1. Well done. Is it easy to see out of that thing?


    2. That is amazing!

      Is it the daylight that makes it look more white than cream-ish?


    3. Excellent work, that’s very cool.


    4. Soon you’ll be back, and in greater numbers.


    5. Great job. However, you may want to try burlap or gunny cloth for a darker, more worn look


    6. You practically walked off the set. That is awesome.


    7. That looks movie quality. That is a halloween costume to be proud of good sir. Now get your kid to be a jawa and abuse him/her to no end. If you have no kids, adopt one for this purpose.


    8. That is an amazing replica. Good job!


    9. great job, but your mouth kinda looks like a leather pussy.


    10. If I’m correct in my observation – this is the best use of a lawn dart since the Jart Murders of ’82.


    11. Well done sir!

      Does anyone know of an image or footage of a sandperson without the mask? Just curious.


    12. That looks cool, the reason i didn’t wear mine was the fact i am too lazy to put together a stick. I just went in my Biker Scout Armour Again… Nice costume dude.


    13. Thanks for the replies, next year I am hoping to put together a replica of Gordon Freeman’s HEV Suit (see Half Life 2), and my wife is going to dress up as Alyx. Some answers below…

      Yes it is hard to see out of, with the helmet on you have extreme tunnel vision.

      I also made the over robe with a monk’s cloth, but it was too hot to wear it out, but yeah I need to get the entire outfit dirty and weathered for it to look more authentic.

      The mace end of the gaffi stick is not a lawn dart, nice guess though. It’s actually a lot of Dremel work on a few dowel rods a side of an old computer case that I cut those fins out of. Lots of epoxy putty, cutting/sanding, and paint.

      The mouth part does look kind of like a leather pussy, also a good observation, but I mounted a PC case fan in there to bring cool air into the mask. Not a good place to think about putting your manhood.

      No kids yet, but I did think about renting a kid to run around as a Jawa with me.

      Barcrest: I followed the Gaffi Stick guide on this website -> www.tk1336.com/tuskenraider.html almost completely, but I made my own modifications. It took a few days to do it once I got the materials together, but the end result is very solid, and doesn’t look cheap at all.

      Thanks again for the feedback!


    14. Awesome. Rarely do I see a costumier as skilled as myself
