I've learned that there are some issues with the original Chewbacca standard. So that we can get it fixed through the Standards Update Project, I'm starting this thread for corrections.

Here is the original standard (reformatted as part of the update project, but all original information) with the changes shown in red. Additions are bolded and underlined. Deletions are marked with italics and underline in parenthesis with delete - (delete ....)

HEIGHT
-7’ Minimum

BODY
-Complete hair suit using natural or synthetic fibers.
---Hair should be strawberry blonde overall
---There is a grey/dark brown mix of hair on the shoulders, back of head, upper back, and outer thighs. -Hair should average at least 6 inches or longer, but 8-10 inch long hair is preferred.
-Complete coverage is required; no bald spots or exposed skin/undersuit.
-Arm length must be proportionate to that of the overall body look. No T-REX Arms.
Costumers Please Note: Faux fur is not allowed. No yarn or shag carpet Wookiees. Rubies suits are NOT acceptable even with modification. The quality of the hair used in those suits is not up to the standards achieved with either the latch hooking or National Fiber Technology Fur routes. The hair must maintain a consistent quality/type throughout the suit.

HANDS
-Dark brown, gray, or black gloves should be worn.
-There should be enough overlap between the gloves and the wrists of the hair suit such that no skin is exposed.
-Gloves may be made of leather, vinyl, cloth, or rubber.
-Claws/nails are encouraged, but not required.

FEET & TOES
-Feet must be completely covered with hair except for the bottom and the toes.
-For stilted Wookiees, toes MUST be visible to create the look of a foot. 3-6” may be required depending on the style of stilt.
-For those who use Kiss boots, or lifts, a hint of the claws is recommended for OT Chewies and full toes for PT. The same stands for those naturally above 7’ tall.

MASK
-The mask must completely cover the head and neck, without completely obscuring the shape of the shoulders.
-The eyes, a smooth black nose, and a large jaw/muzzle should all be clearly visible.
-A slight mustache like feature of the same colour as the dark brow/grey mix should be present as well.
-The mouth should have a slight frown when closed.
-The mask hair should be smooth and well groomed, not bushy, so that the mask’s shape and structure are clear.
-Static masks should not be frozen in a fully opened position. All static mouths should be closed.
-Although a functioning jaw and/or lip snarl is not required, the skin and lips of any mechanical masks should appear as one piece, rather than a separated jaw and face. This refers only to the mask’s outward appearance, not the underskull. Costumers should be aware that mechanical jaws and lips are complex projects requiring purpose-built components using special materials. They cannot simply be added to an existing latex rubber mask. Consult the costuming resources and fellow Wookiee costumers for advice on this project.
-Eye makeup (shades of black or brown) should be worn around the eyes and completely cover any exposed skin.

ACCESSORIES
-Dark brown leather or faux leather bandolier,
---bandolier is approximately 3 inches wide with a narrow center strap,
---bandolier has (delete 8 or 9) 10 large metallic boxes and (delete 8 or) 9 small metallic boxes spaced evenly along the bandolier with the narrow center strap going over the boxes.
---The boxes should have edge detailing.
---The large boxes should have lids and the lids should be closed with a pop rivet midway on the side sealing the box
---The ends of the bandolier should be tapered and attach to a medium-sized leather or suede pouch with a large flap cover.
---The bandolier should hang from the left shoulder across the torso with the pouch resting on the right thigh.
The ANH has a solo disk on both ends of the belt.
---Leather concho should be present as it is on some of the original trilogy bandoliers.

I understand from a discussion in the Wookiee forum that the following changes need to be made:

Quote:
There are 10 large boxes and 9 small boxes exactly. The ANH has a solo disk on both ends or the belt. The bag is smooth leather and quite large like the TFA bag. All other bags are suede.

For the bag in the above quote, is this the ANH and TFA bags that are large and leather with all other bags being the suede?

Looking at a response post from one of the costume judges this was in that post. Would it be good to put the detail about the large boxes having lids and pop rivets be in the new CRL if that is what is required for approval?



"Looking at the bandoleer, specifically, there are 19 boxes on Chewies belt. 10 large boxes and 9 small. (this is not correctly addressed in the CRL) There is also a solo disc that is attached between the first box and bag attachment point. The large boxes should have lids and the lids should be closed with a pop rivet midway on the side sealing the box."

Glad to see that Nails or Claws are optional. Interaction with Younglings could be hazardous.
