One of the most fun parts of Star Wars is how many distinctive characters there are. This is particularly fun for people who enjoy making and wearing character costumes. However, Star Wars also offers the distinct challenge of having characters that aren’t human.

The good news is just because the costume might be difficult doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Read on to learn how to make an Ahsoka Tano costume.
The most complicated parts of an Ahsoka Tano costume will always be makeup and prosthetics. For this reason, it’s probably best to start here, so you’ll know if you can make the costume work.
