AHHHH this is soooo frustrating! the bandoleer pushes against the leg and makes it look odd. not much I can do about it.. maybe pad the whole leg... IDK
if it was just that, Id be fine. its the head that just sucks! the hair is too long and just not right. I use hair spray to try and get him to look like ROTJ chewy... and it kinda does, but there is just too much hair.

I did add more to his mustache and forgot to spray it, thats why its hang down in this pic

I combed it all out and going to try it again... it needs to be cut. I am going to take it to my sisters and see if she can help. She is a beautician. thought I am sure she has never worked on a Wookiee before Smile

It looks amazing...and I kinda like the longer hair look...but you are the expert...
just take your time...
once you cut the hair...it won't grow back...lol...
and..
I am guessing that some of the hair will come out...so starting out with a little extra can be a good thing?

need to take a break for a bit

just too damn depressed on all the work and still not good enough Sad

take a break and get a fresh set of eyes on it..

one of the judges said
too much hair on body and head. I figured the head but thought the body was good.
ammo needs to be straight.. not a problem. easy fix
arms need to be longer... this one not sure how to fix.. maybe some longer hair at the edge of the hands.. IDK.. I'll look at later.

to be sooo close yet soooo far... taken the wind out of my sails.

sometimes walking away from it for awhile is the best thing you can do...

Having your friend who is a beautician look at the hair is a good idea too...bring a photo of Chewie the way you want it to look, and I bet she will be able to cut it correctly...

and...

at the end of the day...

remember this...

if you get an opportunity to troop in the costume ..

do it!!!!

It makes no difference if the costume is approved or not...

lol I already sent her a ton of Chewy photos on Facebook. She is super excited to give it a shot Smile

I am not too worried about RL approval or not. I have plenty of other costumes already approved, but it would be nice.

its good enough to troop in. most people wont know the difference.

yeah, I just need to step away, clear me head before I take another shot at it.
maybe I'll look into the sound system now, see what I can do there..

Breaking it in would probably help. Try wearing out a few times. You know, go grocery shopping, take a bike ride, wear it on a date night......it will get that broke in look in no time.

But seriously, it does look awesome. A few tweeks and it will be there. Don't loose hope.

Crix
I had to make adjustments when I tried to get approval. Don't let it get you down . Take a break for a few days then make some changes alittle at a time you will get it approved.

Looking great

Words can not describe how awesome your project has been Crix...

I have been living vicariously through your efforts and seeing this project come together has been amazing...
I am so glad that you stuck with it through all of the trials and tribulations....
Chewie is ROCK STAR...and I am sure that you will be so glad that you soldiered on with this project!
