Enter The Great Heyblibber Art Contest!

There's one more Jar Jar cosplayer out there and the world is a better place for it! Kyle Lusignan, a Star Wars fan from Texas, recently obtained a promotional Jar Jar Binks statue, manufactured by Pepsi Co. and Frito Lay back in 1999 for The Phantom Menace release, and modified it so he could wear it as a costume. It took Lusignan about 2 weeks to convert the statue into a wearable form, and the pictures and videos of his recent test fitting proved to be pretty popular when he shared them on Facebook. Mr. Lusignan also shared a bunch of his photos with us, and you can see them here.

      
      
 

This will not be the first Star Wars related costume that Kyle has worn. He has cosplayed as Revenge of the Sith Anakin Skywalker in the past and is looking forward to wearing his new Jar Jar costume to events in the future. Besides now being equipped with a realistic Jar Jar costume, Kyle also does a pretty convincing impression of the Gungan - so if you happen to run into him at a con, you're in for a real treat!

 We here at the International Talk Like Jar Jar Binks Day think that the costume looks great and are impressed with Kyle's ingenuity! We wish him lots of luck in his future adventures as Jar Jar, and hope to see more pictures and videos of his experiences as he gets out in the world as Mr. Binks. Hopefully he'll be in full Jar Jar gear on August 19th, 2018, when International Talk Like Jar Jar Binks Day rolls around once again!
