    Hi all,

    I'm new here and just wanted to get some advice. I'm creating a Chewie mask - punching hair into a latex mask and then knotting hair into net for the back piece but I'm not sure how much loose hair I'm going to need for just the mask. I've seen posts about how much hair is needed for the complete costume but no figures for just the mask. I'm ordering hair from NFT so don't want to get the numbers wrong. Is there anyone out there who could advise on how many pounds of loose hair I might need please?

    Thanks very much!

    1 lb of each color because they only sell it in 1lb bags. I have enough hair to make 20 masks.

    Thanks for this - so 1lb of each colour is far more than you would need to make just one mask?

    Yes, more than you would need. Get a used vacuum cleaner because the loose hair will destroy it during clean up.
