Something new and exciting is coming to Cosplay For Jedi! Owned by Star Wars fangirl Alison Berrios, Cosplay for Jedi is an Etsy shop that specializes in creating Star Wars inspired character hats and other products.
We recently interviewed Alison about her shop, the process behind making her popular Twi’lek lekku hats, and much more. She also hinted at some upcoming projects, one of which we have the honor of debuting right here!
“This is the new character hat inspired by Ahsoka’s appearance in Fire Across the Galaxy,” Alison said. “It took a lot of love, but there may still be some adjustments to make. I decided it was time after viewing the last episode of the season of Star Wars Rebels.”
The finale of the popular Disney XD animated series aired March 2, 2015, and brought back the fan favorite character. Once known as the apprentice to Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka left the Jedi Order in the series finale of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, leaving her story open for future storytelling opportunities.
“The episode was so incredible,” she said, when asked about her thoughts about the finale. “My son and I were screaming and shrieking! When Chopper went up that ramp with the four guards, we knew the secret of Fulcrum’s identity was about to be revealed! We both instinctively jumped off the couch and waited, holding our breath! Then, Bail Organa made his appearance, and for a second, I was totally let down. Then, BAM! Ahsoka came down the ladder, and once we saw it was her, it was mayhem in our living room. I had the biggest fangirl flail in the universe and my son was super excited as well! It was everything I think most fans were hoping for!”
Made of flannel, love, and the force! The head band is made of a burgundy vinyl. The hat was hand stenciled and painted. There will be a limited quantity of the new Ahsoka Tano character hat for Star Wars Celebration and Star Wars Weekends. Place your order today!
