It's time for a full frontal picture........................(I'll wait for Rob and Jaster to stop giggling like school girls)

The front of the shirt is DONE!!!!!!!!!!!! :thumbs: :thumbs: :D :D
Still needs some grooming and trimming but it's on to the back!! I've actually started the back already while I was waiting for the grey hair to arrive. You can also get a peek at the feet with the toes on. Those need to get spray painted (if it ever stops raining :roll: :roll: ) and have hair added and they will be good to go.

Looks like I might need some padding under the shoulders as well to kind of boost the top up a little.

Nice work! :thumbs: Yeah I can see how padding the shoulders might balance the bulk of the lower shirt.

WOOOO HOOOOO!!!!!

The guy I've been taking my lead from with my Chewie costume just posted that he is selling Chewie mask kits!!!

The part of this that I was kind of dreading just got a TON easier. I will still have to punch all the hair onto the mask, but everything else will be done!!!

I saw Duck's mask kit thread on the RPF. His stuff is amazing. That will be a tremendous addition to your costume. :)

Yeah, I'm really excited about it and VERY greatful that I won't have to stress about putting this all together (especially since this is one part that I REALLY don't want to screw up!!) :wink: :wink:

He won't have it ready until the beginning of December, but that gives me time to get everything else taken care of and still have 6 weeks to get the mask done before the Icehawks game!! :thumbs:

Chris,
Chewie's looking pretty NICE!! :thumbs: Question - How fast do you think you could run a quarter mile in them there shoes? LOL! :lol:

Any idea where to find a Bowcaster weapon to complete the outfit?

To answer your first question, I do not plan on doing any running in this one :lol: Although walking around is not as hard as I had feared. I bought some athletic type ankle supports just in case, so who knows, with a little practice................ :roll: :roll: :roll:

As far as a bowcaster goes, I made a deal with Duck and he is working on one for me. I have complete confidence that it will turn out amazing!!

Bought one of those speaker shirts and will try to figure out a way to boost the volume when it arrives. For $30, the remote control feature is too perfect not to give it a try.

Wags, I'll be hitting you up for information at the farm tomorrow!! :twisted: :twisted:
