- The mask is face shaped, becoming a base upon which to mount the two glowing eyes.
- The mask is completely black with a shroud constructed of a black material that hides the entire head and face of the costumer. (No parts of the wearer may be visible).
- A black mesh or cotton gauze fabric may be used to cover the front of the mask.
- When the mask is worn only the illuminated eyes are visible from inside the hood.
- The eyes are bright red and approximately 3/4″ (2 cm.) and do not bulge out.
- Eye lights are positioned directly below the wearer’s eyes.
- The hood is made of the same material as the robe.
- The hood is a medium grey color made from tightly woven burlap or Hessian with brown weathering highlights.
- The hood is sufficiently large to lap over the robe, hiding the neck opening and onto the shoulders like a scarf.
- The hood is a separate piece from the robe.
- The hood is hemmed at the bottom with a seam up the back.
- Seams are not visible around the face of the hood.
- The hood extends into ties that overlap at the front and are tied with a single crossover around the back, allowing the remaining bit of the ties to drape down the back.
- Hood tie ends are sewn square or end in a sewn point with no fray.
- The hood must be proportionally sized to the wearer.
- Black lining inside the hood may be used but not visible.
- The hood may be slightly weathered.

- The robe is a medium grey color made from tightly woven burlap or Hessian with brown weathering highlights and a beige tone “sand” look.
- The robe opens in the front and overlaps to the right side of the wearer.
- There is a seam down the back of the robe.
- There is no shoulder seam (as in between the front and back – no seam going from shoulder to neck)
- The sleeves are fitted around the arm (not wide like the original trilogy Jawas)
- They are evenly frayed slightly at the sleeve ends.
- The robe bottom is frayed or has an unkempt appearance.
- The robe is weathered with brown weathering highlights and has light brown dirt-like markings on the bottom few inches (like sand)
- The sleeves should be a part of the body of the robe, not sewn on separately; however due to this particular fabric not always being available wide enough to accommodate all members who wish to construct a Jawa, we are willing to accept sewn on sleeves where the seam is around the top of the arm like a tee shirt would be and is not obvious. Seams seen below that would not be acceptable.
- The tunic is grey, close in color to the outer tunic (a shade or two in either direction would be accepted if properly weathered to match the outer tunic)
- The tunic fabric is light and flowy not allowing the burlap outer robe to stick to it when walking
- The tunic is a full length robe with long sleeves.
- The tunic is as long as the main robe but not longer
- The tunic sleeve cuffs appear sewn (see photo below under “gloves”)
- The tunic’s bottom hem and sleeves may be visible under the robe.
- The bottom of the under tunic may be an unfinished hem
- The gloves are black cloth material.
- The gloves are plain with no adornments such as buckles or straps.
- The gloves cover the hands and entire wrist.
- The gloves may be weathered with similar weathering to the rest of the garment.
- At least one (1) bandolier is worn across the chest.
- The bandoliers are of British 1903 pattern, Martini Henry, Turkish Ottoman, Swedish, British, NZ, Australian, Canadian, German or similar recreations.
- The bandoliers are of a medium to heavy weight brown/tan leather or leather-like material.
- The bandolier(s) are aged and weathered. All metal pieces are dull, worn and scuffed with little shine to them.
- The chest bandoliers are not worn tight up under the armpit area; they reach at least to the waist.
- Extension straps may be added for the bandoliers in order for them to hang low enough.
- Up to two (2) bandoliers may be worn at the same time.
- If two bandoliers are worn they are crossed over the chest in an “X” formation to the waist.
- The boots are wrapped in the same light grey textured fabric as the tunic.
- The boots are tall enough to cover the mid-shin or higher.
- The boots are weathered
- This Jawa ion blaster was made from a “Lee-Enfield No.1 Mark 3 rifle” originally used during WWII. For the blaster prop, most of the wooden front section was cut off and the barrel was shortened. The rifle buttstock was also severely cut down, sanded and stained a lighter color.
- The front of the barrel is a what was a grenade launcher – a cylinder shaped attachment in the front end of the blaster
- It can also have a gun powder flask attachment. At the end of the rifle there is a black cord or hose mounted in a hole drilled in the buttstock. This attaches to a canister with brass-looking details covered in leather or leather-like material which is to look like an antique gun powder flask (as seen below)
- There is a thin leather or leather like strap attached to the side of the flask that is slung over the Jawa’s shoulder
- Triangular shaped wooden look main body (handle)
- The handle must be weathered and made to resemble a wood part

- All parts must be weathered to resemble wood or metal pieces
- Blaster must look like the one represented in the photo or something very similar.

- The holster has a loop at the top to attach to a shoulder strap
- The holster is long enough and proportionate to the costumer’s blaster
- The holster’s bottom is cylindrical in order to support whichever version of the blaster is used
- The device which is used to attach restraining bolts to the various droids.
- This is the device which is used to attach restraining bolts to the various droids.
- This prop was actually a “Microflame” torch (seen in the photo)
- The torch is fueled by small cylinders containing a red valve and a green valve on the top of the torch
- The torch has an arm attached to a button on the front which was used to deploy the tool and moves right to left.
- The knife is a crude “wedung” style knife or similar (must be dulled and have a sheath)
- The knife is approximately 12 inches (30.5cm) long
