Well after a thorough trim . I say full . It was a bin bag full of hair Image.
Hopefully can think about submission pics ?

2 inch padding on thigh for bag to sit against

Thanks for all the help and advice from Paul Smith and Jamie Arielle gotta be close now :)ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Looks great mate. Think it’s good to go for clearance, only thing I do for clearance pics is padding around your right thigh. I found the best thing was a pair of ice hockey shorts. They allow you to adjust the padding to eliminate the stilt bump where the pouch rests against the suit. I got a pair of Greys hockey goalie shorts of amazon for my Wookiee’s as TFA bandolier is shorter than OT.

Thanks mate :)

I might take a little more off towards finger tips but not too much


Hockey shorts will have to wait untill after christmas . Just seen £ Image but for now i got a decent sheet of 2 and 3 inch foam to try so will get the bump sorted one way or another for now

I am also going to redo pics .

One reason .. one of our shih tzus was photobombing most shots Image and the other i had the bag the wrong way round ... ImageImage

Thank you for all the help and support mate . Realy appreciate the time u spent advising and helping me out along the way along with Jamie

Loved the build and know ill be doing another :)

Looks great bud. Judges might advise you to straighten some of the ammo boxes but looks good for submission. I’d also use some Kirbys at the side of the mask just to pull in the hair and stop it fanning out.

Cheers bud .

I added some grips .. now just toying with different ways of doing the hair . Quite like a little at the sides but know how it is . Is a bit too much
