“What is it, like a pet or something?” No, it’s that little green alien we know and love — Grogu! It’s almost May the 4th (obviously one of our most favorite holidays), and here at FashionEarsta, we’re kicking off some amazing Star Wars inspired content for you! Now while I do not claim to be an expert at Mandalorian lore, I definitely am a ridiculous fan of The Child… Grogu… Baby Yoda (or whatever name you give him). After falling in love with his little frog-snacky-snack slurping and his fascination with shiny objects, I was overjoyed to receive this little guy as an unexpected Christmas gift this year!
To celebrate our adorable green star, let’s take a little journey into the story he might have shared if he could tell the story from his own perspective.
Grogu’s Untold Story
Sensitive I am. But Force sensitive I did not ask to be. Relationships and friendships, important to me they are, and to be a Jedi give them up I must.
At the Jedi Temple my story begins. Though masters and fellow younglings grew older, a small child yet I was… similar to a five year old human youngling though 50 years I had. When desecrated the Temple was, enormous loss and pain I felt. Great fear and loneliness set in, and necessary it became to hide my gift for survival. Trust I could not, and justified this was when hunted and captured I found myself.
Then Din Djarin the bounty hunter I met. Showed me the way, the Mandalorian did, despite Mandalorians being ancient enemies of the Jedi. The way to protect, trust, and honor he showed. Gratitude and loyalty he taught. Safety and security he provided. Though no words I have, he understood me, and his mission he made it to return me to someone in the Jedi order.
But becoming a Jedi I do not desire. A foundling in a clan with Din Djarin, the Armorer said I was now… My own helmet do I receive? “By creed, until he is of age or reunited by his own kind, you are as its father. This is the Way .” Her words remain. And love him like a father I do.
Confirmed were my fears of becoming a Jedi by Ahsoka Tano. Love, a Jedi cannot. And my new father I did not want to lose. A Mandalorian I would become. But other ideas about my training he had.
At the Stone of Seeing, into the Force I reached. Though captured (again), rescued by Din Djarin I was. Not safe for long, pursued by Dark Troopers we were. Then HE came. An army of one, wielding the Force with mastery to save us. A Jedi I do not wish to become, but a Jedi like this one will I be if I must.
However, a Mandalorian and clan of two with Din Djarin will I always be in my heart.
In honor of our brave and resilient child Grogu, check out the beautiful ears from TPA Designs. I wanted something not typical Star Wars colors, and I couldn’t resist this absolutely gorgeous bow!
What We Loved
Great! Super light, headband doesn’t slip, definitely wearable for an entire day at the park.
Excellent. Nice and light, well-proportioned and evenly spaced.
Turnaround Time: Excellent! From the time of the order to the time at my doorstep, it was about ten days.
Good! Although I was worried because the ears were shipped in an envelope, but they were safely bubblewrapped and taped inside to make sure they arrived intact!
Good. These ears, while having an absolutely gorgeous fabric featuring the Child, lend themselves to a more vintage feel and don’t immediately scream “Grogu” from across the park. I personally LOVE the look and it works for my style, but if you’re going for immediate recognition, you might want a pair with green ears or something less subtle.
Great. Beautifully lined with moleskin and not too tight. Very comfortable and lightweight, and doesn’t slip.
Great. All of the fabric and headband supplies were excellent. The only thing I didn’t love was the plastic “pearl” trim, which seemed not quite right for this particular pair of ears.
Excellent! This bow is the main reason that I chose these ears, and when I showed it to the other FashionEarsta’s, each of us had the same gasping reaction at how gorgeous it is! Well-constructed, symmetrical, and absolutely beautiful.
Who would love these?
Vintage loving FashionEarstas will probably really enjoy the pastel and muted tones of these ears. And of course, ANYONE who is a fan of the Mandalorian and Grogu. Star Wars lovers who tend to enjoy more feminine and soft looks may also like these ears!
What Needs Work
Needs Work. This is my only true complaint about these ears. I believe the pearls are meant to hide the glue, but I feel like all they did was highlight it. I’d LOVE to see the hot glue covered with some ribbon or fabric or different trim that completely hides it.
Where should future FashionEarstas be seen in these ears?
Obviously, meet-and-greets will slowly be coming back, and we hope that you’ll be able to spot Din Djardin walking around with Grogu in Galaxy’s Edge soon. Rumor has it they are working on an animatronic version of the Child in his floating pram. In the meantime, pop over to the rock wall by the Droid Depot for a PhotoPass opp with The Child. This is a great way to kill time if you’re waiting for a while for Rise of the Resistance!
Overall Score: (4.9/5)
These ears are GORGEOUS, easy to wear, and are well constructed other than that tiny bit of hot glue that shows. I love having a fun pair of ears that honor this adorable little fella, and I can’t wait to create a new look to match for May 4th! Even though Grogu is potentially a reluctant Jedi (and secretly a Mandalorian at heart), we can still embrace the Force and cheer him on!
I hope that you found this review helpful! I’d love to hear what you think of this review, the Grogu ears, TPA Design, or your own incredible designer ears in the comments! Make sure you check us out on Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram, chances are you will see these ears in action!
