How do you get the hair to stick to the face? Is is the angle in which you punch the hair in? Or glue or hairspray?

Yea, I know the Bandolier is long and needs to be shorter. Not enough time between now and next weekend but it will be a few inches shorter.

Need to do a little more grooming and hair work but all in all I am almost complete on this long build.

C2E2 was a blast, I could not believe all the kids and adults that wanted to take pictures.


The smile on this young mans face makes all the hours spent making this costume worth it.

Someone from the Rebel Legion took photos on Saturday of my Chewiee so I can submit them for approval. If you read this can you email them to me so I can submit my application for approval.
