    Here is my wampa costume for Star Wars celebration V. It stands 7'6" while inside I am 5'4" on drywall stilts with arm extensions. I would love to hear some feedback. There is more pics of it at http://mywampa.blogspot.com with many posts on the construction.

    yeah it gets hot inside but I think a full Vader with the quilted leather would be just as bad. Although it looks big and bulky is not as bad as it looks. I made sure it was hollow so air can flow through... and it has a big 5 inch fan inside that blows air down my back!

    I am from Tampa Bay, I know all about the nasty 100* summer we have been having. I built this in a sauna that is my garage with no A/C, that is why I am hoping I will be inside for most of the time.

    I had to make up for being short somehow, here is a side by side shot of it while it was still under construction.

    Just a little update on the suit, I put together a video on how to put it on. You can see it in action and how tall it is compared to my "Handler".
