    Hair color/mix looks great but you left him in the dryer way too long.

    Agreed with the hair. How tall does it make you?

    Yes. Let the thinning begin. I latch-hooked more holes than I needed to on the mesh suit so the mesh wouldn't show through the hair. It is easy to thin but a pain to add hair.

    Thanks for the compliments. If there are any improvements that you see let me know.

    Chewie looks a bit thick. Will the thinning of the hair show us the rail thin Wookiee we all know?

    Oh, my question was not a judgment. It was just a question. He says he is not finished yet, so I am curious if the hair thinning will thin the overall shape.

    Qui it will thin out alot but for the rail thin Chewie I will need to lose a few pounds to look like that.

    Ah...well, still anxious to see it. Many people make wookiees, but very few pull off an accurate Chewbacca. It looks like you are well on your way, despite not being Mayhew svelte.

    Seriously, awesome work.

    Well unless your seven foot plus, it's difficult to get the proportions right!!

    Easy there Dougie. Not slamming anything anyone has done. I am saying I have yet to see an accurate Chewbacca face. Yours is a pretty accurate RotS Chewie, but something about the OT Chewie eludes many sculptors.

    Qui... I agree with you about the mask. There are only a hand full that have pulled off a great looking Chewie.
    Dougie is one of them.

    To me Trap Joe has pulled off the best mask that looks the most accurate.

    I think to many people end up with a smiling Chewie. I would think it would be hard to keep the lips down over the teeth. Not trying to offend anyone elses Chewie. I just am not a fan of a smiling Chewie.

    Excellent coloring. How tall are you before the costume? Do you have stilts or buckets on your feet to make you that tall in the costume?

    I am 5'7"
    I am using Skywalker stilts. Yes... They really are called Skywalker.
    Here is the mask. I got it from Trap Joe. Thank you again Jorg. What would everyone suggest for the back of the head? Connecting the hair with silicone in layers and them punching the rest when I get to the face area?

    Cool pictures. I“m glad, you like the mask.

    I tied the hair in on the backside. You can also glue them on with silicone if you want, but in the middle of the back that hair should be more stable, so that you don“t have to worry, they will fall out when you open and close the buttons.
