I want to display my costume, and was curious about how you guys display yours.

Something simple, cost effective, and sturdy. How do you guys do it?

This ties into a question of mine. I noticed in some of the work in progress photos and video from ROTS that their wookies are displayed on pretty robust mannequins while they are working on them. The arms were in a forward and out position that seemed to give them pretty good access does anyone have any suggestions for a mannequin I can use while working on the costume? Is this even necessary?

Thanks

Duct tape dummy, stuffed with well whatever you want and a reinforced PVC skeleton

I followed this one from whitearmor.net for my stormtrooper and it worked great. I plan on building one with longer legs for my Chewie. Smile

Affordable, easy to assemble, and fairly sturdy. Very Happy

If you can speak german... you can check out one of my favorite how to do Chewie sites... has a nice set up for working and display IMO.

Very cool. I have some 1" PVC pipe already laying around. I think I can construct something that will work. Thanks for the links.
