I stumbled across this homemade Ithorian costume on a Tumblr site this morning and knew I had to share it. I do not know the back story of this costume but I am glad to see someone else is as big a fan of the ‘Hammerhead’ character as myself. Maybe it was for some awesome local Star Wars gala? Perhaps this fan of the character of Momaw Nadon just wanted to make sure they won the costume contest?
