    LOOKS GREAT!! But instead of taking off 5mm. of clay for the underskull cant you just add 5mm. of clay to the negative mold, smooth it out, and then pour plaster into it?

    Yes you can, that's the way Daniel Tirinnanzi does it for his amazing animatronic gorilla head that was used in the Cadburys commercial.

    But I decided to do it this way, didn't take too long and will be as effective!

    Here's the finished suit! Still needs a little tweaking (adding hair here and there) but very happy overall!







    Will top out at approx 7'5", I'm 5'11", I'm giddy like a little kid at Christmas!!

    Dougie,

    I haven't been back here in a while, so I popped in for your updates. I'm glad I did.

    You are doing an absolutely amazing job on this. You could hold your own with those
    that made the real suits my Irish brother.

    I'm so thrilled to see this in fact, that I'd offer you just about everything I had for that
    thing !!

    Phenomenal talent and execution

    Hi Dave,

    Have been following this build on other forums, have to say mate it's outstanding in what you have created, i'm intrigued to seeing the mask finished and you weilding your Wookie Bowcaster.

    If the mask comes out as good as the suit, this effort may never be topped. Nice work

    Really hope to have it ready for Easter weekend! But as usual real life gets in the way!

    I have the face, teeth and upper underskull moulds complete so just need to mould the mandible and start casting!!

    I seriously can't believe how you came up with this!!! I never would have been able to do the designing part, much less have the skill to put it all together!
