    Nov 21, 2009, 5:26 AM - Chewbacca #1

    Have started my Wookiee project, after months of research and deciding whether to do Chewie or Tarfful, finally if gets underway. Chewie it is then!!!

    Have just completed the feet that give me 12" of lift. The hair is kanekalon latch hooked to a mesh.



    Beginning of the underskull build, needs some tweaking before I mould it.



    Have a local tailor making mesh trousers and top for latch hooking.

    Few progress pics



    They are really comfortable to walk in and very stable.

    I have ordered an original trilogy bowcaster from www.stentorindustries.com
    Also asked him to price an ROTS version too.

    On the hunt for a bandolier, I don't think it's something that I could make myself. I'm useless at sewing.

    These are the trousers after approx 3 to 4 hours of latch hooking, it's hooked about 5 inches from the leg ends.
    That is just one pack of kanekalon.
    Using kanekalon numbers strawberry blonde #27 and brown #6, will start to introduce some blonde #22 and grey #44 as I progress.
    I estimate that it will take approx 25 to 30 hours to complete the trousers.

    My motivational ref image thrown in there for good measure, it's what will keep me going!

    Reminds me of Jim Carrey's furry boots in Dumb and Dumber.


    Looking good so far. Will look forward to seeing more.

    Awesome work so far. That was the exact idea I had for how to make the suit. Where did you get the mesh and what kind is it if you don't mind me asking?
