I thought I' share my Wookie scalp re-do with all of you. I was unable to get in on Julie's horse hair runs, so I had to be creative. Thanks out to her for her progress pics and helping me souces some artificial sinew.
I have a RotJ/SE suit and opted to try to recreate the MoM exhibit scalps.
You'll need some blond, brown, black, and grey "hair"; some red, blue, white, and black sinew; and some leather lace.
I was able to find the blonde, black, and brown pre-braided hair;
the black and white sinew; and leather lace at Michael's. I had to buy the blue and red sinew on eBay (thanks to Julie for giving me the store name). The store name on eBay is: Primitive Originals.
I found the grey hair last Halloween as part of a wig. It was nice and long and I able to get about 3 braids from it. Now is a great time to pick some up as they are probably 50% off!
The blonde/black braid is nothing more than individual blonde and black strands from the Michael's variety braided together.
You can see the individual braids attached below. I found the instructions for tying the Turkshead knot here: http://www.geocities.com/yosemite/ge...turkshead.html
I will secure them to my vest with a safety pin, with the closures underneath the vest. I'm sure that these may not be 100% screen accuate, but they are my vision of what they would look like.
