Hi all, nearing the end of my build! Would have posted a build log but have next to no idea how to post photographs. One piece I noticed I was missing was gloves. What do all do for the all important wookie hands? (If someone wants to pm on how to post photos it would be appreciated.)

You can use black nomex flight gloves. I have those with gorilla fingers attached to the ends. I also have some rubies Chewbacca gloves that I chopped up and attached to gloves.

I use Imgur for uploading photos then copy the BBcode link and post in the forum

I use the black gloves they have at home depot. Grease Monkey Gorilla Grip gloves. They are black, have a rubbery texture yet they breathe very nicely. I glued a bunch of fake fingernails on them and used some black plasti-dip around the knuckles. Hair is also glued onto the back of the hands up to the first knuckles.

I am replacing them with a new set of gloves made mostly the same way, except instead of gluing the hair down I am tying hair into some mesh, fingerless "clubbing" gloves that are forearm length.

I like this approach as they look good but are also very comfortable and have good dexterity. They are easy and inexpensive to make and replace.

yup pretty much have a mechanics glove and I added fingernails, just to add a little more realism to the effect when people see or shake my hand.
