Monkey Wants a Tauntaun!

Knitted Taun-Taun with ThinkGeek Monkey /// Check out our blog for lots of Star Wars crafts and ideas /// #starwars #starwarsparty #maythefourthbewithyou #starwarsbirthday #luke #tauntaun #knitting maythefourthbewithyoupartyblog.com  ©mara's things https://maramas.wordpress.com/2011/07/09/this-post-smells-even-worse-on-the-inside/

One would think that stuffed monkeys do not NEED Star Wars costumes.  And one would be wrong.  I know that M4P friend Amy (maker-of-all-art-things extraordinaire) would certainly object to that statement, so Amy, this one is for you!

This brilliant creation by Mara Saxer at the blog Mara’s Things has everything a curious monkey could want: ear protection (to protect its ears if it makes too much noise), icky gooey tauntaun innards, and goggles to protect oneself while playing with said innards…and style. Monkeys have style!

Timmy, the Monkey dressed as Luke (from Mara Saxton’s blog Mara’s Things)

 

I came across the first image on a website a while ago, but lost the link.  So I googled “crocheted monkey tauntaun costume with guts”, and found it again. It HAS to be the coolest Google searches I ever did… Turns out that Mara made it for a contest by the geekily cool online retailer Think Geek: the challenge was to dress their mascot Timmy for an upcoming ComiCon.

While you search the Think Geek site for Hoth Monkeys, you should do some shopping as well.  They really do have cool stuff!  Think Geek Star Wars Products

But more importantly, go to Mara’s blog and check all the pictures out.

Lastly, I know a monkey who NEEDS this!  (right Amy?)
