    Mar 19, 2013, 8:01 AM - The beans self made wookie braid no:1 #1

    I've put together a black wookie braid using 3 seperate ladies hair accessories and some colored rubber bands
    at only 1.50 euro each i figured it would be worth a try and would like to know if they look the part and if i've got the right color
    wrappings in the correct places?

    lookin good buddy. I'm no expert on braids but it looks believable. In the third picture, the bottom of the braid where the hair is let out looks a little too poofy but other than that it's great!

    Looks great, especially for the price. Well done.

    You should be able to thin the end down and get rid of some of the poofiness.

    Ive added on the grey/silver braid i purchased from Woodman,
    Does it look like it's attached in the right place and hanging low enough, or not low enough?Click image for larger version.

    You might try a front photo too, but for me it looks spot on!

    It is much better! With a bit of rearranging (moving some of the braids up or down) I say that you are spot on:

    You might try to curl the silver and black braids by pulling the ends against a flat edge several times.

    You really did a great job!

    little update but not on the braids, some gloves i put together
    all the stitching of the padded stuff i did myself and cuffs too i added a little extra with the touch screen pads on the finger tips
    not accurate but handy when you don't want to take of the gloves whilst trooping Click image for larger version.

    The grey material looks a little dark in these shots , but i'm fairly pleased with them. A little weathering and i'm good to go i'd say

    Except the base material color, the gloves are excellent!
