Mask

Source: ESB Photoshoot

Required Details
● Mask hair muct match the suit.
● The mask must completely cover the head and neck, without completely obscuring the shape of the shoulders.
● The eyes, a smooth black nose, and a large jaw/muzzle should all be clearly visible.
● A slight mustache like feature of the same colour as the dark brow/grey mix should be present as well. The mouth should have a slight frown when closed.
● The mask hair should be smooth and well groomed, not bushy, so that the mask’s shape and structure are clear.
● Static masks should not be frozen in an opened position. All static mouths should be fully closed.
● Although a functioning jaw and/or lip snarl is not required, the skin and lips of any mechanical masks should appear as one piece, rather than a separated jaw and face. This refers only to the mask’s outward appearance, not the underskull. Costumers should be aware that mechanical jaws and lips are complex projects requiring purpose-built components using special materials. They cannot simply be added to an existing latex rubber mask. Consult the costuming resources and fellow Wookiee costumers for advice on this project.
● Eye makeup (shades of black or brown) should be worn around the eyes and completely cover any exposed skin.

Looks pretty good, for the most part. I have some minor suggestions aimed at making things clearer and answering common questions that newbies have.

My notes are color coded. Additions in green, subtractions in red.

NFT spells fiber with the American spelling.

Faux fur or fun fur is not acceptable, as it is not long enough.

Faux fur is a common question as most are not aware that faux fur longer than 4" doesn't exist, so mentioning why will help answer a lot of questions before they are asked.

I recommend replacing this:

No yarn or shag carpet Wookiees. The Rubies Supreme Edition Chewbacca suits are NOT acceptable even with modification.

Mostly just re-wording it, spelling things out. Remember that not everyone knows what a Rubies suit is. It helps to identify it by its proper name, especially for non-English speakers.
We've also had yarn and shag carpet Wookiees submitted or suggested before.
