ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Jabba the Hutt Supreme Edition Costume
Wrong terminology; this is a cosplay costume, not a fursuit.
I do find it interesting that just one mention of the word “fursuit” in conjunction with this costume totally changed the way the discussion would have gone.
With “fursuit” in the title, we get “YIFF IN HELL” and a sex-dominated discussion.
Without it, I’m fairly certain the discussion would have concentrated on how bad this costume looks, and how much better/crappier/whatever other Star Wars costumes are in comparison. Possibly with some “Han shot first” jokes thrown in.

Wait, there’s nothing “furry” about a giant slug.
That said, I can definitely see Star Wars geeks fetishizing this, especially when combined with the slave-girl costume Princess Leia wore for Jabba.
Looks like a great way to bathe in your own farts.
Looks like room for two inside there.
Not all furries are furry fetishist.
Oh god… Why’d you have to call it a fursuit? Why couldn’t you just leave it at “costume?”
This would be marketable if it was a sleeping bag.
I am outraged. Everyone knows the Hutt would be the stern one.
It’s a shame that the suit seems to be based on that cheesy CGI Jabba instead of the original puppet version.
Forcing the galaxy’s most rotund gangster into human-sized proportions just so you can use some previously discarded footage of Harrison Ford? LAME.
Brings new meaning to the phrase, “He’s carrying a thermal detonator!”
Jabba fatsuit, not fursuit. Sort of like those fake sumo-wrestler things.
Thank you for that exceedingly bizarre mental image. Unicorn chaser, please?
Needs a big latex tongue.
Let’s drag this guy across Lake Champlain.
That’ll get ‘em twittering!
just picturing him plunging into the sarlac pit

@ Danc, unless you’re talking about Zero (Ziro?) the Hutt, who’d be more of a “hateful gay stereotype-cum-Truman Capote parody one.”
Indeed, though, they got the S/m Hutt/bounty hunter dynamic wrong….
Maybe also a latex sleep-sac/vacuum bag for those hottt Han-Solo-encased-in-carbonite scenes? Yum!
YIFF IN HELL.
YIFF IN HELL
Um. Shouldn’t that be yiff on Tatooine? I guess there’s not much difference.
Unfortunately with this costume you lose two of Jabba’s best features, namely his adorable fat lil’ hands.
That is the best Snuggie ever!
Or you could skip the “Jabba” part and use this as part of a cock transformation scene.
@22 The fact that a sign slogan from one sad little rain-soaked protest is even known to the world shows the awesome power of The Interwires.
I know that “furries” represent a small percentage of the fetish market already, but I think this may target, like maybe 1 person.
“Does this make my butt look big?”
“Noooo, it’s fine. Can we go now?”
