Hi friends!
A friend of mine, called Victor Teran (a future RL member, that's for sure Wink ) started this project on April.
Since I'm Han, you can imagine what he is doing...
I'M SO HAPPY!!!!





He's a bit shorter than the average wookiee, so...



This is Victor:




















The wookiee bag:


And finally...


Well, that's all for now, we are very anxious to see the costume finished.
When finished, he'll send his application to the RL.

Stay tuned!

Joe

Very cool! Just make sure he uses a hairdryer on low setting to straighten out the Kanekalon hair... it makes all the difference in the world.

Nice! Wookiees are coming out of the woodwork. Great to see more coming to the RL.

Duck is right, try to hairdry and straighten the hair before you latch-hook it, otherwise you will end up with a crimnp haired wookiee.

Looking good. Is he going for a wookie warrior look or a Chewbacca costume?

Now, the head...
I don't know what kind of materials Victor is using (I guess he's trying things), so perhaps it may not look as "professional" as many other works, but I'm sure he is doing his best!!!







That's all by now!
