Character/Costume Description

I have been planning my Chewie costume
for over 4 years now.
I started latching in October 2019 and 11
months and over 300 hours of work later
I'm now ready to submit my application.

My Chewbacca is based on the OT Chewie
seen in Empire Strikes Back.

The main suit is split into shirt and pants.
Both have been latchhooked by hand using
kanekalon type hair.

The hair used on mask and suit are made
from the same shades of hair to achieve an
overall consistent look.
The mask is built with an articulate mouth
and I'm wearing black makeup underneath
for the eyes.

The bandolier was purchased off Facebook
from Mel Mattson, the resin cast boxes will
soon be upgraded to genuine aluminum

The boots are plateau boots with some
additional padding, making my Chewie
about 217 cm or 7.1 feet in total.
