The Stilted Wookiee Brigade

Post by Lumpy » Tue Oct 04, 2011 8:22 pm

May I present the completed legs to go over the stilts for Chewie........

Image

Once I put the mask on, I will top out at about 7'6" or 7'7" (which is much more accurate as Peter was 7'9" suited up). I think it turned out fairly well. We'll give it a full try on Saturday at the Palace walk. I can't put the whole thing on in the basement because I don't fit. :lol:
I can't even fully stand up WITHOUT the mask!! :rotflmao:

Plus, looking at where my arms are hanging, I think once the shirt is on, I'll be pretty good with the arm hair length to avoid the T-Rex arm look. :whatthe:

...and if you could get hold of one of these, this would scare even more people, the first authorized Chewie costume from 1977!
