It has been a long time coming and with all the troubles at work and at home, I now can finally start to look at making my wookiees. I know I have made a little fuss with my discussion on Gungi so I've decided to make a him as well as Chewbacca (or close to it).

I really do want to make these wookiees look very different for as pictured below Gungi has a more brownish look that Chewbacca I'm wanting to have Gungi with the following hair number blends :- 2 parts #12 (Lightish Brown), 1 part #4 (Dark Brown) and 1 part #27 (Strawberry Blonde). And I'm wanting to do my Chewbacca with the following hair blends for most of the body:- 2 parts #27 (Strawberry Blonde), 1 part #6 (Chestnut Brown) and 1 part #4 (Dark Brown). I know there is a pattern forming here of but I do want a good base and I see most people have a strong #27 as their base with blends of #4 and/or #6 so I've decided to go with both, if anyone has any better suggestions I'm all ears.



I've been collecting my supplys for sometime and I'm awaiting on my #12 (x20) and #27 (x20) hairs, a pair of skywalker stilts and am currently shopping around for a foot maker. But this is what I've got so far (all pictured below).

15 Yards of Collin's Cottage Aqua Mesh
40 Packets of #27/4 Kanekalon Jumbo Braid
20 Packets of #280 Kanekalon Jumbo Braid
1 Head made by Dougie Fett
2 Bandoliers made by Mel Mattson



If anyone has any advice for info they would like to give me, I'm more than willing to take it.

Looks good! It has a good organic look to it. Great for a wookiee Jedi.
