I'm a Death Trooper in the 501st and have decided to build a Chewbacca with another 501st member.

Best place to start is the Chewbacca and Other Wookiees forum and also to read through the big resource pages that I've put together:

The first is my old (last updated in 2008) Chewbacca Costuming Resources page. The second is the more up to date (but still incomplete) Wookiee Builders Club site.

Once you've read through those pages you'll have a good idea of what is involved.

The problem I am finding is the sources are all USA not UK and within a week of starting to research, I have found the evil chimp mask is difficult to acquire.

So much info and options but this can also be a hindrance.

Im very keen to do this but dont want to start something that will be murder to finish, I hear bandoliers are not easy to come by either.

Hidden costs are also an annoyance. The UK doesnt seem to have the wealth of info on its site and although people are very helpful and friendly, Im feeling I need a plan and a list of needed items and vendors in the UK.

Decisions decsiions....

I wasn't aware that Evil Chimp was hard to come by. His masks are popular on both sides of the pond.

We have a number of Wookiees in the U.K. I would just get on the board and all other but UK Wooks what they are doing.

Thats what Im trying to do but so far my attempts to get a fur free mask to build my face is proving fruitless. Only complete masks available.

Im gonna persevere with building stilts and mesh suit whilst I try to source the mask.
