Most of the hair should be a medium-brown color. The outsides of the knees, the shoulders, the upper back, and the back of the head should be a dark brown, gray, or a mix. Hair should average at least 6 inches or longer, but 8-10 inch long hair is preferred. Complete coverage is required; no bald spots or exposed skin/undersuit. 2. Faux fur is not allowed unless hair extensions have been added. No yarn or shag carpet Wookiees. The hair must maintain a consistent quality/type throughout the suit. 3. Dark brown leather or faux leather bandolier, approximately 3 inches wide with a narrow center strap, with 8 or 9 smooth large metallic boxes and 8 or 9 smooth small metallic boxes spaced evenly along the bandolier with the narrow center strap going over the boxes. The ends of the bandolier should be tapered and attach to a medium-sized leather or suede pouch with a large flap cover. The bandolier should hang from the left shoulder across the torso with the pouch resting on the right thigh. 4. Dark brown, gray, or black gloves should be worn. There should be enough overlap between the gloves and the wrists of the hair suit that no skin is exposed. Gloves may be made of leather, vinyl, cloth, or rubber. 5. When worn, the feet must be completely covered with hair except for the bottom and the toes. The toes and toenails/claws must be visible. 6.

A slight mustache like feature should be present as well. The mask hair should be smooth and well groomed, not bushy, so that the mask’s shape and structure are clear. 7. Static masks should not be frozen in a fully opened position. All static mouths should be closed. 8. Although a functioning jaw and/or lip snarl is not required, the skin and lips of any mechanical masks should appear as one piece, rather than a separated jaw and and face. This refers only to the mask’s outward appearance, not the underskull. Costumers should be aware that mechanical jaws and lips are complex projects requiring purpose-built components using special materials. They cannot simply be added to an existing latex rubber mask. Consult the costuming resources and fellow Wookiee costumers for advice on this project. FORMAL REQUIREMENTS: For formal status, you must be at least 7 feet tall while in costume. Lifts, stilts, and other height-enhancing footwear can achieve this.

    Tusken Raider, Male Version 2 (Bantha Rider)

    Tusken Raider, Male Version 2 (Bantha Rider)

    CHARACTER DESCRIPTION Tusken Raiders, less formally referred to as Sand People or simply as Tuskens, were a culture of nomadic, primitive sentients indigenous to Tatooine, where they were often hostile to local settlers. The term Sand People was given to them due to their existence in the desert, and was in use from at least around 4000 BBY; but the more formal name of Tusken Raiders was acquired much later, due to a period of concerted attacks on the settlement at Fort Tusken in 98-95 BBY. Although this name is often used as a common term for the race, it actually refers only to the participants of the attack on the settlement. Specialists studying the past of the Tusken Raiders also used the term Ghorfa to denote an earlier sedentary phase of their culture, and lastly Kumumgah, for the earliest stratum of sentient civilization on the planet, believed by some to represent a common ancestry shared by the Ghorfa and the Jawas. In the culture of the Tuskens, to expose any part of the flesh was forbidden and seen as a disgrace. (Source: Wookiepedia) REQUIRED ITEMS 1. Fully wrapped helmet/head similar to one as seen in EpisodesIV: must include cloth wraps (duck cloth, muslin or similar fabric should be used), leather/simulated leather mouth-wraps, 2 tapered/straight eye-stalks with 2 slits cut into the underside of each, 4 head-spikes, 2 blood-spitters, 1 silver nose-piece (tooth) with at least 2 vertical slots, screened lenses so as not to see the eyes and mouth of the wearer. 2. Robe of similar color, texture, and pattern to those seen in Episode IV. 3. Breather similar to ones seen in Episode IV 4. Fabric waist wrap of similar color, texture, and pattern of those seen in Episodes IV. 4. Sand-colored cloth/leather gloves. 5. Cloth arm wraps covering the arms until concealed within robe(s). 6. Boots/shoes covered with cloth wrappings. (If shoes then cloth leg wraps covering the legs until concealed within robe.) 7. At least one bandolier of similar type/design as seen in Episodes IV across the chest/waist. 8. Gaffi stick OR Tusken Rifle either/both of similar type/design as found in Episodes IV.

    Jawa

    CHARACTER DESCRIPTION  Jawas were typically short rodent-like natives of Tatooine. They were passionate scavengers, seeking out technology for sale or trade in the deep deserts in their huge sandcrawler transports. A band of Jawas was responsible for locating C-3PO and R2-D2 and selling them to Luke Skywalker’s uncle, Owen Lars. Another tribe of Jawas, led by Tteel Kkak, found Jabba the Hutt’s rancor. They had a reputation for swindling, as they had a penchant for selling old equipment such as outdated faulty droids to moisture farmers. However, they were extremely passive beings, and hardly put up any resistance to colonists of their planet unlike the other natives the Sand people, instead seeing foreigners as an excellent business opportunity.

    See-Threepio (Classic Trilogy)

    CHARACTER DESCRIPTION C-3PO, sometimes spelled See-Threepio and often referred to as Threepio, was a bipedal, humanoid protocol droid designed to interact with organics, programmed primarily for etiquette and protocol. He was fluent in over six million forms of communication, and developed a fussy and worry-prone personality throughout his many decades of operation. After being destroyed and discarded on the planet Tatooine before 32 BBY, C-3PO was rebuilt; his salvaged nature gave him special qualities that distinguished him from similar droid models. Along with his counterpart, the astromech droid R2-D2, C-3PO constantly found himself directly involved in pivotal moments of galactic history, and aided in saving the galaxy on many occasions. C-3PO considered various droids and organics to be friends of his, and was very dedicated to them, as well as to any master that he served.
