Hi Everyone!

Thought I would share my build thread along the way and hopefully get some insight from you veterans out there!

Parts List
Mask: Ben Townend
NFT Suit: Ben Townend
Bandolier: Mel Mattson
Toes: Jamie
Stilts: Home made
Gloves:
Audio device: MiCom Sound Rig


Here is one of the many reference photos that I have for TLJ, can't wait for this puppy to come to life!


Bandolier came in from Mel, she was an absolute angel to work with! First go around the mailman dropped the bandolier outside in the pouring rain while I was at work, came home to open a soaked and discolored leather bandolier. Mel was so gracious to to replace the parts that were ruined by the rain. She makes an awesome bandolier and provides phenomenal customer service. Highly recommend!



Here are the toes Jamie makes, awesome mold. Couldn't be happier.


Here's the placement of the toes along with the platform stilt that I have made. I am 6'2 and when standing on these I am 6'11. With the mask this will push me over to the 7'1-7'2 height. I have the shoe bolted onto the top part of the wood and will eventually have extra support after I install some bindings over the toe area. Still dabbling with a few ideas to get more support to eliminate any ankle rolling while have the mobility to squat down and interact with the little ones.


This is everything I currently have pieced together


I am awaiting the NFT suit and mask from Ben Townend, absolutely love his work and is really great to work with. Our custom order of the blonde-ish hair came in, just waiting for the new mask kit to come in.



My goal is to have my build completed by December of 2018, Can't wait to be a part of the Wookiee Club.

I wanted to ask, what does everyone use as padding/grip for the sole of the stilt?

Some have suggested EVA foam but I am afraid that over a small amount of time it will flatten or warp. As of now the base of my stilt is wood and I want to add another layer of protection/grip between the wood and the floor I'll be walking on.

Any and all suggestions are welcome!

EVA foam should suffice. Wink , use thicker ones and just replace once it has worn out.
