Hi Wookiee builders,
i need some dimensions to build my feets.
How large are the Chewie feets in original?
My shoe size is actually 16 1/2 ( american size) Shocked , plus the toes, is this large enough?
Cheers Frank

No one really knows the size of the screen used feet. The important thing is to be proportionate.

Figure out how tall you in your final costume with mask on will be. Start planning arm length, feet size and head size from there. Proportions are most important.

Feet should stick out a few inches from the front of the legs. Depending on which movie you want to copy the feet look different when worn.

The idea I am using is based around my height in the stilts, once I mod them (before they turn into feet).

Basically, I'm going to stand with them at shoulder distance apart and take a picture (from the front and side). Then, I am going to overlay the picture below and line it up with my eyes and the ground. This will give me a general girth (where and how much I need to pad), arm length, crotch placement, waist placement, knee placement, and head height for the costume.
