Thank you

Love the work jamie done on the head . Just hope i can do it justice with the bidy etc .

Have some high steppers now along with s2 leg band kit so can mod them to have twin side supports .
Once i add the ali supports . Will get on the high steppers and get some pics so can be guided on the under suit for where body / arms etc should hang.
Undersuut once i know how it should fit . Seamstress said one day it be done .

Prob be after mcm london now though but be good to get started :)

Mesh is sorted . Did post a link i think . Its great stuff too

So decided to start modding the high steppers .
Worse case scenario back to the wooden platforms and use the same supports .


Added a nut to the out sides to pull the support out a little more

Supports are 19.5 mm square by 2mm aluminium

These high steppers take me to 7 feet 4.5 / 7 feet 5 inches

Was initially thinking remore 3 inch from bottom of base . Slide back over the top and reattach with bolts and rivets .
Will the extra couple of inch make much difference when walking ?

Also in pics ive drawn a line where possibly to move the supports forward a little

2 small vids
First time on any for of stilt with supports .
Only flat area the hallway lol

First wookiee steps feel like a elephant dancing on ice Image

Any advice and help apreciated

Looking good. Legs look a bit stiff in parts so might be worth trying the post a bit further forward and see how it goes. You just need to be comfortable in them and that will give you confidence mate. I’m looking to do the Kiltwalk with Chewie in September as it’s only 5 miles.
