Going somewhere, Solo? Comic Con is finally here! And I’m so excited to make the big reveal of this costume I’ve been planning since last year. You better believe this sexy lady Greedo always shoots first.

The last two years I rocked the sexy Chewbacca costume I made in 2010. But as absurd as it sounds, scantily-clad wookiees apparently became an overabundant trend at the Con and some Reddit-trolling nerds got their whitey tighties in a twist over seeing their favorite walking carpet sexualized by “fake nerd girls.” In response, I’ve set out to upset a few more Star Wars fans by sexualizing one of the most unsexy characters in the galaxy far far away — Greedo. Yes, our beloved overzealous bounty hunter with the infamous sloppy marksmanship.

I started conceptualizing and designing this costume just weeks after SDCC’12. I picked up the blue pants and tank at Forever 21 and ordered a pair of $1 round sunglasses on Ebay. Next came the custom pieces. I made the belt, holster, and vest myself and I was super proud since it was my first time using the sewing machine on my own. Then my mom and I slaved over these ridiculous details down the side of the pants and spent hours upon hours trying to figure out the best way to attach them to the pants without having to tear them open. Finally it all started coming together. I made the hands with rubber gloves and rolled paper painted over with liquid molding latex. The antennae were formed by sculpting paper with masking tape and then painting over with the liquid latex. For the mohawk, I painted Q-tips and glued them to a strip of fabric bobby-pinned to my head. And lastly, the ears were made by sculpting a form from clay and painting on a removable layer of liquid latex. All of it was a huge learning experience and I had no clue what I was doing the entire time, but I think it all came together pretty decently.

ps. Before I get harassed for it, I apologize for using Han Solo’s blaster and not a DT-12. It’s the best I could do. Also, thanks to Cryssy Cheung for this awesome little “Han Shot First” pin featured on my vest.

  1. So awesome! You look stunning, as usual. I loved the sexy Chewie and I consider myself a die-hard Star Wars fan. Screw the haters, you look fabulous! Also, thank you for sharing your process, I always wonder how these amazing costumes get made.

    • I used a cream makeup from Ben Nye. It’s not very oily and it doesn’t rub off easily, but it’s kind of hard to apply. I felt like I had to put on SO many layers just to get a colorful coat (that’s why I didn’t end up coloring my arms). I know Ben Nye is a great company for stage and costume makeup, so I might just be using it wrong.

  2. FAN-TASTIC!
    I don’t really care for couples costumes, but THIS made me laugh my butt off! LOVE!
    Did you use liquid latex for the chest & face dots?
    And the ears?
    Thanks for sharing all your hard work/techniques :)
    I want to rock this in San Francisco this year. I’ll totally give you cred for the original creation ;)

    • Thanks! Yes, the chest and face pieces are liquid latex and the bumps were made with sculpey clay and painted over with more latex. The ears were made by sculpting a form from clay and painting on a removable layer of liquid latex.
