Tusken Raider Resource

Tusken Raider Resource Page

Here is how I made my very own Tusken Raider costume.  I’m using this page to collect all the information I put together about making this costume, in the hopes that it helps other people create their own costume.  When I started out, there wasn’t a lot of information about the costume out there, or if there was, it was kind of hidden.

Most of the content is pulled from blog entries and forum postings that I did while making the costume.  So, some of the entries might sound a little funny, but the basic content is there for your use.  I took a lot of pictures during the making of, with the intent of creating a site like this, so that should help you figure out what all was going on.

Good luck, and happy costuming!
