Got these ordered today. Hopefully they work well.



Still waiting on some strapping to come in that I ordered to replace the velcro straps on the high steppers. Once that's done I'll be adding non slip mat to the bottom and start sewing my mesh suit.


I'm big and don't use padding, but please post a pic with your on, I may need some to update my Wampa costume, and these look good Smile

So turns out the shoulder pads I had ordered are to small so I need to make time to get another pair before I move forward. After that I can start sewing my mesh suit.

Since I still havent gotten new shoulder pads, I decided to work on my toes a bit. Attached a piece of the puzzle workout mat on the bottom of the stilt to keep from slipping and extended part of it out to sit under the toes to keep them off the floor.

So little update. Procrastination and my wife just gave birth to our little girl last month put me on a bit of a hold working on this. MY head arrived from Jamie and is amazing. Going to need to get some larger shoulder pads, the youth XL are still to small. Mesh pants have been sewn by a buddy of mine. Buckets still need to be painted but once they are, I'll order the hair and start latch hooking the pants until we get the top made. I'll try and get photos uploaded of everything.

Wow your mask is beautiful. I only bought the mask kit because I am doing a very original wookiee, I hope mine turns out even half as good as yours.

First of all congratulations on your little one.

Secondly, how do you like walking in those steppers vs stilts? Feel pretty stable?
