Chewbacca and his Wookiee kin have always held a soft spot in many Star Wars fans hearts. This panel will show avid cosplayers, Star Wars enthusiasts, and the general public how these iconic characters can be brought to life. The talk will cover the general build necessities (tools, materials, pieces, and general build timeline), costume drawbacks and need to know hazards, and how to and how long to stay suited up. There will also be a comparison for different Wookiee builds and a little history for the Wookiee's will be discussed. The presenters have each successfully built a Rebel Legion approved Wookiee and have attended many Star Wars related events in Northern California.
