**updated to add** it’s getting to be Halloween time again and I always get a ton of emails about this costume. I made this 4 years ago for my son. I didn’t use a pattern, I don’t know of an ewok pattern and I no longer have the costume. The only suggestion I have is that if you’re going to make one be careful what you use because this type of thick, stiff fake fur is not really meant for an allover costume – too hot!
the small, furry Ewoks live in harmony with the natural world around them.
ok, here’s Oscar’s Halloween costume. He’s Wicket W. Warrick, the Ewok from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Being the brilliant first-time Mom that I am I though ‘oh, how he’ll love to be all snuggly and warm in a furry costume on a crisp October night!’ Of course the fake fur is heavy, hot and itchy. Of course, this is the boy that screams like you’re pulling off his toes when you put any clothes at all on him. Of course he hates anything on his head. And, oh yeah, of course it’s 75 degrees in Chicago this Halloween!
Here’s Wicket with Aunt Katie the Star Wars fanatic and the originator of the Ewok idea. Thanks KT!
It’s a good thing that many of the items in Oscar’s thriftstore-bought wardrobe look like Halloween costumes anyway. A backup plan is underway.
