I finally got around to making a carrier case/box for my Chewie head.
Mainly because my wife was ready to throw the head out the window if she had to hold it to another troop.

I started with two drink tubs from Walmart ($6.00 each)


I cut a piece of plywood the diameter of the bottom of one tub. Added a dowel rod to the plywood. Added a old mannequin head to the top end of dowel rod.
I didn't secure the plywood to the bottom because I wanted to be able to pull the whole thing out so I can set it on a table to style the hair if need be.
I added a small bungie cord to act as a hinge.




Added a strap to the top for easy carrying.


And a little fun with some extra vinyl I had left over.

I saw this in the FB threads. This is cool. I bet it will get a lot of attention, especially at the airport...lol.

TSA:

"Ummm, can you come over here? There appears to be a head in there......"
