Hi there, my name is Suzie. I saw Garrison Correllia in the WV Memorial Day parade in 2018 and 2019 and thought your authentic costumes looked awesome. Took pics both years and sent them to your PR person via Garrison Correllia’s Facebook Messenger app. (Garrison Correllia won 2nd place in the 2019 float category, Congrats!) I have a question for any current Jawas: do you have the wrap things around the neck? I ordered an authentic looking costume from a 501st supplier called Creative Costume and Design in CA (from Etsy) who is a 501st Jawa herself, but it does not have the neck wraps. I tried to add some myself because I read somewhere the neck wraps were required, but it’s a different material and not exactly the same color. Any recommendations? Thank you :)

Hello, and welcome to the forums! I do not have a Jawa myself, so I can not help you with that question. There are several here that can assist you and help guide in a positive way. Take care and again, welcome!

Hello from a fellow Jawa! Do you have any images of what you are referring to? The CRL for a Jawa doesn't list any neck wraps unless you are referring to the tie's from the hood? Or possibly the black material used as a mask to cover your head?

Thanks you all! I have to figure out how to shrink pic files I can post them here.

Hi! You may want to try an image hosting site like imgur.com so that you don't have to deal with resizing the images... Here's a little more info:

https://imgur.com/

It's super simple. Go to the site, click the green "New post" button at the top, drag and drop your photos or you can select the "Browse" button and choose them that way. You can upload multiple files at once which will automatically be organized into an album. After they've completed uploading, then share the URL here. The photos are listed as private by default and you don't have to create an account to upload images if you don't want to.

I have removed the large brown wraps around the neck (which I mistakenly added myself.) My question is: should I contact the seller to find the exact material to attach hood ties, or is it ok as is? Thanks so much
