    Apr 4, 2012, 7:16 AM - Chewbacca (National Fiber Technology fur build) #1

    My most recent Chewie build, this time without the agony of latch hooking....but with the use of NFTs wonderful fur fabrics!

    Started life as a duct tape mannequin of myself!



    A pattern was cut from cheap polyester fabric!



    Then the fur was cut and sewn!



    Already have moulds for the mask and underskull, loose NFT hair was used for punching!



    Finished product!

    Dougie, is this version cheaper than the one with the puppet hairs?

    What does this way cost?

    thx!

    No latch hooking? Whatever are you going to do with all that new found free time, eh Dave?

    Unfortunately what you save on time...you certainly pay for with these fabrics. It is on average $40 a SQ Ft and you need approx 35 to 40 SQ Ft per wookiee.
    Thats just the fur alone!

    National Fiber Technology
    Custom Fur & Fibers for Film, Stage, Taxidermy, and Theme Parks

    It averages out to be approx $40 a SQ FT, not cheap! You would need approx 35 to 40 SQ FT for a wookiee.

    Wow, you've really taken this Wookie making to the next level. That NFT hair is just unbeatable. No matter how much you try blending the 'other stuff' it just won't match the NFT standard. This is also because there is gradient of colour along the length of the hair.
    You've totally nailed that Chewie, best one I've ever seen....by far!!

    Outstanding work, bud! That's one of the best Cheque suits I've seen. Most others don't get the face right, but yours is really good.
    Builds like this really get me inspired to start my own.

    As the proud owner of two Chewie's that Dougie Fett built, this version is by far the best. LMK if you decide to sell it....
