San Diego Comic Con has come and gone and while Ashley Eckstein’s Lego dress and Ahsoka-inspired braids created quite a stir, it wasn’t the only Ahsoka Tano outfit that was turning heads at this year’s convention.
Candice Dunlap Miller’s striking “Yarnsoka” cosplay caught the eye of Star Wars: The Clone Wars supervising director Dave Filoni and Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein (as well as that of numerous convention-goers) and has the distinction of being the only Ahsoka Tano costume made almost entirely out of yarn.

A web designer by trade and an extremely talented crochet enthusiast in her spare time, Candice Dunlap spent four months sketching, designing, and hand-crocheting Ahsoka’s tunic and various accessories, including Ahsoka’s two lightsabers, gauntlets, and a headpiece representing the Togruta’s montrals and lekku.
And if that wasn’t enough, she even found the time to make a Rebels lightsaber scarf as a gift for Ashley.
