The Jawas are a Star Wars species known for their propensity to scavenge and resell mechanical objects. Wouldn't it be ironic if you turned the tables and built a Jawa of your own?
To make the body, you build an armature out of plastic conduit pipe, then you pad out the shape of the figure with foam. The hands are a padded wire form covered with gloves, the eyes are flashlights with amber reflectors over the bulb, and the head is a big Styrofoam ball, cut and drilled into the correct shape. The eyes are inserted into drilled holes, and the head is covered with fabric. You'll sew and detail a cloak, then paint it to look like your Jawa has been hanging out in the deserts of Tatooine for a long time. Finally, you'll finish with purchased accessories and put it all together.
This process should cost you a little over $100, and even that is mostly the $40 leather bandolier that the Jawas wear; you'll also need a few power tools. If you're ready for the challenge, you could have one finished in time to greet Trick-or-Treaters in less than a week; you could also easily adapt the instructions to build any kind of spooky little standing figure that your heart desires.
