Hi all.

So I am about to start putting the hair onto my Chewbacca mask. Quick couple of questions though if anyone could steer me in the right direction. On the nose there seems to be hair applied to the side of the nose that spreads out towards the cheeks and then there is hair on the bridge of the nose that spreads upwards toward the forehead (see photo). Does the stuff on the side get applied first and then the hair of the bridge applied after? Hope that makes sense.

Also when latch hooking the hair at the back of the head and applying the hair on the mask in general, what length of hair should I be working with?

Lots of questions I know but can't find the answers with the search function and this is my first time doing a mask

The answer to your first question is yes.

The hair is applied to the sides of the nose with an excess overhang.
After about half an hour trim this excess off. Continue with the rest of the face and then apply the hair to the bridge of the nose to the crown of the head.





The answer to the length of the hair to latch hook is just about 15 inches, so when folded for latching its half that length.

These are my methods and others might do things a bit differently.


Hope that helps
