    Nov 6, 2008, 9:49 AM - Chewbacca #1

    Well whilst i wait for the funds to become available for my Fett upgrades, i thought i'd make a start on a costume that has been on the back burner for a couple of years. I have made the under suit from a mesh fabric and the hair is synth kanekalon. The plasters stilts give me a height of 7'5", so hopefully i won't look like Lumpy

    still a long way to go though

    Genius work! Can't wait to see more of the process on this.

    WOW! I would think that those pants will get heavy once all that hair are on them.
    But... this will be interesting to watch, very fun!

    You might want to consider boiling that hair to get the kinks out before lacing it in or you might look like Chewbacca is a member of "Destiny's Child".

    Made the female mould of the mask. I need to get the dragonskin outer mask done first before the fibreglass under skull (more waiting).

    Nice work! It'll be nice to see how this comes together.

    Are you as tall as Mayhew with or without stilts, Bountyone? Great pic either way!

    well I hope no one on here is 7'2".... i believe that is mayhew's height.

    I feel bad for him.

    I hit my head everywhere just at 6'5"!

    stilts are a great idea though

    what is your natural height?

    No, I'm only 6'4. I recently sold that Chewie costume, I have a guy making me a new one with Kenetic jaw and underskull. Should look 10 times better than my old suit.

    Looking good. Have you come across Mark from MA, USA in your wookiee travels? He's our local Chewie and is one of the best I've seen so far...
