Jar Jar Binks is a character who appeared in the release of the prelude Star Wars films Episode I: The Phantom Menace, Episode II: Attack of the Clones, and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. He is a bumbling creature, often stumbling over his own feet, accidentally setting off embarrassing chain reactions, but has a big heart towards the desire to help his friends and fight for the side of good. He is of the Gungan race on the planet Naboo, amphibious aliens with an underwater civilization and powerful war ethics and weapons. Because of his haphazard manner and continuous clumsy antics in front of the head of the Gungan clan, Jar Jar was banished from his community which is how he initially met the Jedi.
Upon meeting Obi-wan Kenobi and his mentor Qui-Gon Jinn in the opening of The Phantom Menace, Jar Jar becomes part of their small troupe destined to protect Queen Amidala from powerful forces at work behind the scenes of the Galactic government. He often takes on the role of the coward, hiding behind walls when a fight breaks out and running away from the machines, sometimes getting in the way of the Jedi. He misfires guns and destroys most equipment he comes into contact with. His gentle, easy going nature, though, finds him a friend on Tatooine with the young Anakin Skywalker. Despite his buffoonish ways, Jar Jar is promoted to a general of the Gungan army and leads them into battle against the Trade Federation robots. For his heroic efforts, Queen Amidala honors the Gungans with equal citizenship and medals of honor.
In Attack of the Clones, ten years after the initial events of The Phantom Menace, Jar Jar became a member of the Galactic Senate on Coruscant, acting on behalf of Naboo and the Gungan race, appealing to the senate at the most critical point to hand emergency power to Chancellor Palpatine who would set into motion to clone advance against rouge Trade Federation armies.
The great thing about the Star Wars universe is the bounty of available Star Wars costumes for the variety of fans. For those who enjoy everything there is to do about the Gungan race, Jar Jar Binks costumes are available. Boys and girls alike can take on the mask of Jar Jar even if Binks was a Gungan male. The Jar Jar mask is about as life like as they come. All the wearer has to do is provide the voice, which is just as iconic as the look of Jar Jar and the Star Wars films themselves. Jar Jar Binks Halloween costumes are that chance to fit in at a Star Wars themed party, be it during Halloween or any other excuse to celebrate, like the Empire fell all over again.
