Hello all, I am in need of advice on color matching the shoulders and legs. I currently have a completed Chewie, but it looks like I need some grey on the shoulders and legs. When I got the costume, my intention was just for Halloween and the occasional cosplay with the family. Now, I am interested in becoming a member, I think I need some highlights. Any suggestions on the best way to achieve good results. Link to current costume below.

Very confused on the grey, as some photo references have a lot and others show more brown.

Should I add synthetic grey hair to the brown?
Should I somehow do grey highlights?

I'm confident once I solve this, I am ready for submission.

Oh.. I know the bandoleer is on the wrong side.. Smile

The areas that are dark in your costume are the grey areas. While there are indeed various reference photos out there where it appears dark brown, this is largely a problem of color correction that has caused them to look this way. Its basically a mix of dark brown and grey.
