Hey there everyone!

I’m new to the RL and I’m hoping to build an Ewok costume.

I have a few potential bits for the costume already which I’ll post photos of.

One question I did have was how to pad this character out a bit? Would I use some kind of undersuit?

Thanks, I look forward to the build.

Did a search on Facebook for Chief Chirpa's Army, and didn't get any results. Care to post a link?

Ok so I will be getting started on this again soon. I thought I'd start with the feet.

Would these be a good base for them? Their bascially cheap ugg boots from a local sportswear shop.

I don't see why not. They might be a little on the warm side to wear, but I believe others have used a similar style.

I've ordered the boots, now to move on to the hands and toes.

Is it best to use something like this, they are yoda hands from amazon. If I ordered two sets.

Another thing I wondered was would it be clearable to have a net shoulder bag of fake 'rocks' as an accessory? I've done a quick sketch to show what this might look like.

Sorry the pictures are so small, I'm trying to work out how to get them bigger Smile

Many people use the Yoda hands, and "manicure" the fingernails. I purchased some "alien hands" instead as I liked the look better, but I had to make and glue on fingernails. It's up to you and the look you prefer.
