Mask Tips

A Tusken Raider's mask from ANH.

The Tusken Raider is an iconic part of Star Wars IV: A New Hope. The Tusken Raiders kock Luke Skywalker unconscious, and have already torn apart C-3PO. They are easily startled, but they will be back, and in greater numbers.

The masks consist of a wrapped head with six metal pieces. Four spikes on the head, two eye cylinders, two cheek husks, and a nose piece. All of the head is wrapped in tan colored fabric with a snout covered in leather emerging from the mouth area.

The same fabric is used for the head, arms, feet, and boots.

Buying the Mask

Normally I would have a step by step guide to make your own mask. This is not the case with the Tusken mask as I chose to buy one. My mask was made by Tusken Outfitters and I highly recommend them. The mask came perfectly sized and assembled. I just had to add some extra weathering to match my style. Tusken Outfitters also sells kits if you want to assemble it yourself.

Perhaps in the future I will construct my own.
