Posted on the base post, but I know sometimes we check build areas more often then base area when we are working on our suits.

Welcome to the world of patience! At least in my case that is how it ends up being, but I get caught up on lots of DVR TV shows. Off to a good start, and if you need anything just give send me a PM and if you are on FB, we can communicate that way as well. I am currently the only wookiee in Blue Ridge Base and out of the Raleigh/Durham areas. So not too far away if you need to see things in person or get a feel for wearing a full suit. I have 2 approved wookiees, so always willing to let people try one on and see if they would even like it.

Look forward to seeing your progress and best of luck on the build!

Looks GREAT! Especially the toes, I wish I could have use Step Upís, but Iím 6ft. And when I first tried them I was 7ft 8inís. I thought of cutting them down, but then I realized that by doing so I would weaken the Base. So I decided to use custom Platforms.

Looks even better when I see the bigger image here. I saw your last one on my phone since I was traveling. Looking forward to seeing the complete suit and will be happy to have somebody to tag team with soon!! I love being Chewie, I just feel bad in a way being an Officer for Carolina Garrison and not trooping with them 99% of the time. Hope my hackle hasn't messed you up too bad either. I gave you fair warning haha.

YOu can totally cut them down and they are just as strong if you do some reinforcements. As the guy who discovered them, trust me. They can be cut down and supported using some treaded rod as cross supports

I cut mine down and they are super stable! I believe maybe right in half. Top fits right into the cut section. 2x walled now Smile

Looking great so far! I think you'll want to extend the arms and torso a bit for proportions sake and give the mask a grooming. Looks like you're really close!
