Not much of an update but all of silicone skin (well, except the bits I needed to leave) is now bonded to underskull.

It’s getting hairy!

Took me about 7 hours to latch the back cowl... gawd knows how long the suit will take :D

And had a go at the feet...ImageImage

Masks coming along well but I think your feet are a bit to close to human toes. See attached ref from the CRL.

Masks looking good mate but really need to see what it’s like on the head to see how the hairs sitting 👍

It still needs more work tbh, any bald patches sorted etc, and I might introduce a bit more gunmetal.

Styling tips definitely required, too :D

I’ve seen that “Got2be Glued” works well to get things lying right?

I’d definitely add a bit more gunmetal to break up the brown. Just make sure and keep it symmetrical. For styling just use Kirbys hidden beneath the hair for hold the a light spray with water followed by the got2b

Cool, i’ll try that.
Needs a real good thinning out, too.

OK, had a go at thinning out. I think it went alright... what do you think? Any glaring issues?

I’ve identified a couple of places on the face that need a bit of needle-punching but apart from that, i’m pretty happy with the result, given I was so apprehensive about the build :)

Looking good mate. Maybe just a bit punching around the eyes but coming together really well. Told you that you had nothing to worry about. I also try and add a bit of grey around the lower half of the face, don’t want the judges telling you it too close to Chewie.

Much better but the outer toes are a bit to far back.

That’s fine, I should be able to take a wedge out and re-bond it in a better position.

Regarding the mask looking too close to Chewbacca, I’m actually considering ordering another mask kit to make it considerably different :eek:
Never thought i’d be typing that :grin:
