Ginormous Star Wars Wookiee Cosplay

May The Force Be With You

Have you ever seen someone cosplaying Chewbacca in real life? It’s a pretty large costume. But if you’re Julian Checkley, you don’t just put on a hairy suit and call it a day. No, when you’re cosplaying Star Wars’ Tarfful, you put on stilts and harnesses, and you get help from friends to stand up. Because a 8′ 2″ wookiee is something worth bringing to life.

If you want to be even more impressed, check out the production process here.
