I'm asking on behalf of a friend who is not here yet: Can an adult play as a young Wookiee, such as Lumpawarrump? I am 5'4" but I want to be a Wookiee cub!

any help would be appreciated.

Hi! While I am not official or an officer or anything, if the responses from my post on the 2nd or 3rd page here still stand and I understand them correctly, the only way to do a wookiee under 7' was to do a named one that already exists in the wookiee universe. However, you must also have the same look, etc including the lightsaber if doing Gungi.

Hope that helps and if you read that thread about being under 7' it may give a better answer then me trying to sum it up Smile

There isn't a CRL for that costume, and probably won't be until someone makes the suit and writes one.

The techniques are pretty much the same as any other Wookiee. I have some reference photos of the suit you might be interested in.

Thanks for the help! I am the friend Merlyn was posting on behalf of. I am interested in any reference pictures you have. Still trying to determine if I want to be full size (I have a colour scheme I want to do), or a cub. I just finished knotting a Chewbacca-coloured dress that I might modify into a base for a suit, but none of the cubs have the grey that Chewie has.
I am just worried I'll look like a t-rex if I add 2' to my height.

Hey there!
First off WELCOME! Yes, Lumpy, Kitwarr, and Gungi are all viable options for those of us of smaller stature. I'm 5'2" and I have a Gungi as well as a 7'2" Chewbacca (definitely possible to be short and still pull off full Wookiee height). Smile I'm currently working on a youngling sculpt that would be viable for either Lumpy or Kitwarr if you're interested. Feel free to PM me or find me on Facebook! Itd be really cool to finally have a Lumpy in the Legion!

Kitwarr looks very small. Under 5' maybe? I have a headcast I will sculpt a face on, but thank you for the offer!
