Does anyone know where I can find an adult size Ahsoka Tano head piece. Everything I can find is child size and there's no way I can fit my head in that Laughing If I can't buy one, does anyone know of a good way to make one?

All depends on realistic you want to get! duck is probably the person to ask, he's doing an impressive togruta headpiece. Here's the thread:

Headpieces like this usually involve a bit of sculpting and/or mold making.

These tutorials from Flagship Eclipse could also be helpful. They're common advices. Nothing special for a Togruta headpiece but a Twi'lek one could easily ported to Togruta standards I suppose.

Actually I have the problem of finding a full-head head dress for my daughter's costume. The ones I've seen so far are front-only

You can look on www.starwars.com/shop they have Ahsoka Tano's kids costume for the head piece even though it has the front it still has the back lekku or head tail attacked to it. There is another option you can make Ahsoka Tano's head piece from cotton cloth just make sure you pre shrink the material first befor you make the head piece.

I highly discourage anyone from wasting their money on that piece. My opinion is that is cannot be modified well enough to meet RL Costume Standards.

True there isn't much you can do to modify it, but you can still use it as a guide for the adult version, and use it to make a better quelity version for your child.

My CO makes them. Definitely check with Duck, or I can put you in touch with Bob, my 501st CO and Duck's friend.

JmB, can you please make your signature image smaller? It takes up my whole screen.

Thanks

I asked him the same thing, and also requested that he use the actual Blue Ridge Base logo.
