Admiral Ackbar Costume Tips & FAQs

Embark on a galactic journey with our Admiral Ackbar costume guide FAQ from “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.” Dive into the details of portraying this iconic Mon Calamari leader as we address your most pressing questions about creating a costume that’s true to the character’s memorable appearance and role in the Rebel Alliance.

Admiral Ackbar's most distinguishing features are his large, bulbous head with deep-set eyes, and his salmon-colored skin. The costume should include a detailed mask or headpiece replicating these features. His outfit consists of a white uniform with a distinctive high collar and rank insignia, along with a utility belt.

To replicate Ackbar's uniform, look for a white or off-white long-sleeve tunic with a high, stiff collar. Add a black or dark belt and create or purchase rank insignia badges to attach to the front of the uniform, representing his status as an admiral in the Rebel Alliance.

Creating an Admiral Ackbar headpiece or mask requires sculpting skills. You can use materials like latex or foam to sculpt the head, paying attention to details like his large, domed eyes, and pronounced facial ridges. Alternatively, you may find high-quality masks available for purchase from specialty costume retailers or online.

Admiral Ackbar's hands are webbed and a different color from human hands, so gloves that replicate these features are important. His feet are not typically visible under his uniform, but if they are included, they should be webbed as well. Use similar materials to the mask for consistency.

Including quotes from Admiral Ackbar can add an extra layer of authenticity to your costume. Some of his memorable lines include: "It's a trap!," "All craft, prepare to jump into hyperspace on my mark." "We have no choice, General Calrissian! Our cruisers can't repel firepower of that magnitude!," "We won't last long against those Star Destroyers!" and "Concentrate all fire on that Super Star Destroyer."
