Glowing Star Wars Jawa Eyes
One of my earliest memories was watching Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope in the theater with my dad and siblings. I about jumped through the roof when the lurking, hooded Jawas with yellow eyes aglow emerged out from behind the rocks and blasted R2-D2 with some kind of space taser. It's amazing to know six-plus movies and a few television shows later my children are versed in all things Star Wars and can probably re-enact that particular scene in its entirety without any rehearsals. So I set out to make some light-up glowing Jawa eyes to impress the young padawans. The picture above captures my 5 year-old's bliss at "fweaking" himself out as he puts it, by getting to actually be a Jawa. My oldest was thrilled too, but I have to admit the baby ran out of the room when he saw them on me. "Wait!" I yelled to him, "I'm your father!"
