The Wookie-Ewok dress from Etsy artist Crissy Baker is a handmade piece, cut and sewn to order, that includes both a faux-leather bandolier for taller wearers, as well as an ultra-suede hoodie with fuzzy ears for those of Ewok stature (though I suppose you could always go as a Chibi Chewie or a ludicrously tall Wicket W. Warrick if you so choose). The outfit also includes fuzzy shoe covers to complete the ensemble. It retails for $US150 on Etsy and requires three weeks lead time — giving imbibing editors plenty of time to cancel an order. [Etsy via Walyou]
