Hi IpoWook, I really like the colour but I would like to see the hair straightened. I know you're going to thin it out but if you look at the hair now, more and more will perhaps make it look really puffy. As the hair is already on the suit in parts, perhaps one of the Wooks who have already done a post-latch straighten on mesh can assist on the best method.

The hair will gather in time with wear but my fear at this time is that it will be way too poofy and not be able to be straightened later without a ton of effort.

Just my 2 cents Smile


In regards to the straightening, you can just run the hair dryer over it on high heat and it will smooth out the frizz. So no worries there. Rastafri hair is good as it comes and can be cut and latched without straightening, but some of the other brands are pretty frizzy and should be straightened beforehand for easier application.

Love it! I’m working on a Gungi mask sculpt right now. I’m brand new at sculpting but am feeling good about it’s youthful look at this point. I wonder what your plans are for a mask? Feel free to check out my sculpt on FB (Josh Beckett- Chewie with goggles profile photo).
