Tom as the Jawa! Halloween 1978

This is an amazing Jawa costume!

Tom remembers, “Here’s me (Tom) dressed up for Halloween (1978 or 1979).  My dad bought a Ben Cooper Tuskin Raider mask, painted it black, then installed red lights onto the ’tubes’.  He wired the lights to a battery pack on my belt, and I held a switch in my hand allowing me to blink the lights.  My mom sewed the costume.  The blaster was a toy my dad found, painted it black, added a cardboard barrel and attached it with electrical tape.
