Had a meet and greet 501st/RL on the weekend and got Sair kindly offering to get into MY costume as she's the same height and width (lol) as me. Well, not quite my width but the height was perfect haha.

I needed someone to get into my pants, so to speak, so I could get a real view of what the duds looked like. After much trimming, I ended up with this. This is with the high stepper stilts on sans toes.

Pics below.

All feedback is appreciated.

Older version of pants:

Man, I can't believe I look so skinny. I need to wear Wookiee pants more often!

I think the thinning has really helped blending the colours at the side. They looked fine before but look even better in this pic IMHO. I think you've also nailed the leg fall from the sideways view. Nice graduated flair to the bottom, no lumpy human foot/stilt lines sticking out.

Glad I could help out and also get a taste of what being a real Wookiee girl is like. Can't wait to start my own Wookiee suit this year and learn from you my master.

P.s. What is with the face I'm pulling in the last pic though? Yikes! Look better with Chewies head on that off there ;-)
P.p.s. Just realised my WonderWoman tshirt can double for Wonder Wookiee too!

So I'm happy with the top and pants and am now looking at the toes on the bucket stilts. The next two shots are what the bucket stilts currently look like and then how you can't see them under my pants as they currently are (thanks Sair for modelling).

EXHIBIT A


EXHIBIT B


My question is, based on the following photos, do you think the toes are:

A. long enough
B. high enough









As you will see I'm going to glue two pieces of EVA foam together to get the right height and then shape them into 5 toes and then hot glue toenails onto the foam.

I would like to know from my fellow Wookiee builders if I'm on track before I attach the foam to the stilt. Your advices are appreciated.

Thanks
Sez.
