Some serious time and effort went into the creation of Scott Holden's incredible Halloween costume -- Han Solo on the back of his tauntaun from The Empire Strikes Back! Scott created the piece for the Zone Ball, a Halloween bash thrown by a Sacramento, CA rock station that draws over 12,000 visitors for the annual event.

The tauntaun costume is a scale-model of the real thing, with the wearer's legs supported by stilts within the frame of the body, while Han Solo's legs that straddle the back are bogus. Scott discovered the hard way that putting the costume on is a two person job, as his first test-walk with the costume found him tipped over and pinned overnight in his garage! Details of Scott's innovative DIY Star Wars creation can be found on the blog Incredible Stuff I Made.
