Jabba the Hut is a character from the Star Wars movies. In the movies he plays one of the most famous Hutt crime lords in the galaxy and operates a criminal ring from his desert palace. His crimes include spice-smuggling, gun-running, slavery and piracy. Jabba the Hutt is not a very attractive character; he is fat, with large, dark brown rolls, big eyes and a large tongue that droops out of his mouth.

    The Head

  1. 1

    Lay your hat on a flat surface and start filling garbage bags with newspaper.

  2. 2

    Tape the filled garbage bags to your hat and orient them so that they are in the rough shape of Jabba the Hut's head. Leave a small space between the bags for you to be able to look through when you wear the hat.

  3. 3

    Tape tan construction paper to cover all of Jabba the Hut's head.

  4. 4

    Cut out two eye shapes, two nostril shapes and a large mouth out of the tan construction paper. Cut out a large tongue out of the red construction paper. Use the markers to colour these body parts the appropriate colour and then tape them to the head.

  5. 5

    Draw the stretch marks and rolls on the head with a black marker. Use your picture of Jabba the Hut as a guide.

    The Body

  1. 1

    Draw rolls on your tan shirt and tan trousers to mimic the rolls on Jabba the Hut's body.

  2. 2

    Put on the oversized tan shirt and trousers. These clothing items should be at least five sizes too big for you.

  3. 3

    Stuff your trousers and shirt with newspaper until you look like a large blob, similar to Jabba the Hut.

  4. 4

    Put on the Jabba the Hut head and look at yourself in a mirror. Make any adjustments you need -- including adding, removing or moving newspaper -- until the head and body part are indistinguishable and you are the size and shape of Jabba the Hut.
