I used a brushing technique to get him "furry". The body was stitched the same as you would for a normal amigurumi then brushed to oblivion with a wire brush I got in the pet section at the store.I finished him while on route to Star Wars Celebration VI for our Honeymoon.
|Chewbacca: Cool as a Cucumber|
|Close up of Bowcaster|
|He needs some Burt's Bees|
|C-3PO: But sir, nobody worries about upsetting a droid.|
Han Solo: That's 'cause droids don't pull people's arms out of their sockets when they lose.
Wookiees are known to do that.
Chewie's mouth opens completely to reveal his beautiful teeth and my favorite part, the tongue. The tongue is attached to the back of the mouth and moves wherever I want it to go. It makes posing a little more fun and gives him some attitude!
|What a healthy mouth!|
Now he just needs a backpack with a mangled C3-PO to carry around :)
