Your progress is looking great. How did you go about doing your feet on the stilts? Are they rubber or foam?

Just checking to see if the spacing looks ok? Am I using to many strands?

Maybe a touch too many, but not terrible. You will go through the same trimming ordeal with the head and face as you did the suit.
I went from this..........

to this...............

and finally to this.................


just with trimming the head hair.
Keep at it!!!!! Wink

That looks like Janet Leigh from the movie "Psycho".

What a pic to have in your bathroom!

I think your spacing is fine... for now. Once you get to locations like the mouth eyes and all of the edge areas like the nose. You will want to go with a finer hair punch with a lot less hair per punch. Otherwise your wookiee will have a Barbie Doll hair line.... thick!

Taking your time in these areas will make or break how the mask looks.

Here is the mask with all hair punched in.



This is what came out of the mask after first thinning and grooming. I still need to thin and groom more.


I got my Bandolier in from Mel. All I can say is, if you need a AWESOME Bandolier she is the one you seek. 1000 times better than I hoped for. Thank you Mel.

I know it is on the wrong side. I couldn't wait to get a pic of it. Smile
