Required Details:

  1. Mask hair must match the suit.
  2. The mask must completely cover the head and neck, without completely obscuring the shape of the shoulders.
  3. The eyes, a smooth black nose, and a large jaw/muzzle must all be clearly visible.
  4. A slight mustache like feature of the same colour as the dark brow/grey mix must be present as well. The mouth must have a slight frown when closed.
  5. The mask hair must be smooth and well groomed, not bushy, so that the mask’s shape and structure are clear.

Optional Details:

  1. Although a functioning jaw and/or lip snarl is not required, the skin and lips of any mechanical masks must appear as one piece, rather than a separated jaw and face. This refers only to the mask’s outward appearance, not the underskull.

Consult the costuming resources and fellow Wookiee costumers for advice on this project.
