Great to see you back!!

This is the pattern I used for most of the body, as you said, some areas needed more hair, and even every hole at some "folding points" like where the hair falls over the shoulders. Not saying this is the way to do it, but it worked for me based on what others before us have done!



Once I finished this part of the arm, I realised that with natural movements you could see a lot of skin and netting, so I added more. That's the general rule of thumb I used for the whole suit Smile

I think your hair looks just fine. Know that it will "calm down" as time goes on anyway Smile

I have mostly finished the feet. Just need to make the band for the leg support.

I have added a joint on the leg support so that I can easily squat down to get in the picture with kids. It seems to work really well and yet still leave me with the lateral support to not roll my ankle.

I am finished both feet now. The toes will just be visible when they get the inevitable hair cut.

I have started hooking the legs. More of the brown on the feet will show when hair is thinned out.

Seeing that I am trying to match my cat's colors, her name is Chewie, I think it is going fairly well.

I have gotten to just below the knee. I timed how long it takes to hook one package of hair - about 55 minutes. So far I have hooked 26 packages of hair so this is about 24 hours of hooking. I guestimate that I am about 1/3 done so I'm thinking about 48 more hours to go for a total of 74 hours to hook the suit, if all goes to plan. Not as bad as I thought when I first started.

I have not gotten a new picture to display, I have added dark brown on the outer legs. I think I am getting tennis elbow hooking the hair though...lol.
