Im going to be making a Life Day Wookie.

I own a 'geek' store, and have this little fella in my shop (not in his current location)



I'm planning to make a Christmas display for customers, and a Life Day wookie seems a good addition.

To start, I have these feet. I cant walk, so they'll be painted and attached to a pair of shoes.



I also already have a Wookie head.




Im looking at using this fabric

I notice the screen image also has a section of satin around the bottom of the robe and sleeves, I need to source that.

Haven't looked at a life day globe yet, gonna hit up some discount stores or ebay this week.
