Thanks! The hair is really weird! I confirmed the colors like 3 times with Jamie to make sure I wasn't crazy because up close it looks more grey than brown but at normal distance for photos and such it is more brown. The gold/blonde color does that a little, but not nearly as much. At the same time the darker colors don't hold a wave/curl nearly as well as the lighter colors. Has been a weird learning experience, but overall has been good to work on something like this and be outside my comfort zone. Of course this weekend I am going to do absolutely nothing but my school work since I have not had a free weekend in months haha.

Good luck. It looks great!

I have a question for you. How do you get the hair on the face to stay in place so wonderfully? It is a constant struggle with my wookie to get the face hair to stay styles.

Ive had the problem in the past, but it helps if you keep the hair on the brow shorter than some of the other parts of the mask. I use 4-6" strands there. That, plus the silicone glueing, helps keeps it in place pretty good. Then I use a good hairspray. Fudge cement is the best stuff to use, but I found that Got2B glued works great for me.

Hi everybody,
Got feedback that I need to lengthen hair on the arms. Ugh! I was hoping they were long enough so I can feel like using my hands was possible lol. Will get re-submission done this week for sure. Maybe tomorrow since it's a holiday for me and would like to get some cleaning done....like vacuum where all the hair fell on the floor hahaha


Chef - The colors used are M4/22:44:4 with a 1:1:1 ratio for greyish brown color. 144:27/613 as a 2:1 ratio for the golden blonde.
I used a wave/curler to give hair kinks which looks much better now that I have taken it out for a troop and placed it in the tote for a while. Made the hair look more natural. I noticed that the curls also have a slightly different look do from where they heated up. I didn't heat or straighten the hair beforehand.

Big Bear, I have to admit I had help from Jamie in regards to the head. I just know it's a matter of mini-bobby pins, Cement hair product which is almost impossible to find anymore for a decent price, and lots of hairspray.

Approved as of this morning. WOOT!!

I have discovered it’s a really weird feeling having a weekend without latching. I had time to actually go outside and see the world haha.

Short lived though, I am going to be helping the wife upgrade her Ewok.
