The Jawa are relatively benign characters from Luke’s home planet of Tatooine. They tend to travel in packs (making for a good group costume) and don’t treat droids too well. They are a very recognizable race from Star Wars- even if you didn’t know their name. They are small- so they are a great costume for the kids.
This is a pretty simple costume to pull off. You just need the brown hooded robe, a black mask, and I have seen yellow or red eyes. Here is a great example.
Jango Fett is the bounty hunter from Star Wars: Attack of the Clones. He is such a good killer that the storm troopers are “modeled” after him.
Jango Fett has a very unique look. He wears the blue “Fett” helmet and uniform complete with jetpack, steel-plating and rusted robotics holding the suit together. Try here for a awesome Jango Fett costume.
Maybe you remember this bad guy from your Nintendo days? Shy Guy wasn’t the smartest villain, but he (she?) could be pesky. This cosplayer has a cool DIY costume perfect for a con. Memorable, recognizable and unique!
She makes Shy Guy out of red and white felt but you could also get a mask like this (and paint on the dopey expression) or a cape like this.
