The Top Seven Awful Chewbacca Costumes [Cosplay]

By Great White Snark | March 6, 2011

Apparently putting together a costume made almost entirely of brown fur is more complicated than you’d think.

7) The Hairy-Chested Chewbacca Costume

Many bathmats died to bring us this costume.

6) The Cardboard Chewbacca Costume

So, yes… it’s pretty fantastic as far as cardboard costumes go.

But in the meantime: it’s still made of cardboard.

THANKS, 1977!

The only way the design of this Chewbacca costume could have been more lazy is if they plastered recycled artwork of The Wolfman’s face across the chest.

4) The Gorilla-Faced Chewbacca Costume

A compelling argument against gene-splicing technology: Gorilla Grodd crossed with a Wookiee. A super-smart gorilla who rips arms off all willy-nilly.

3) The Chewbacca Baby Costume

Good thing you’re not old enough to know better, Baby, because you look like a Fraggle who could easily be mistaken for a feather duster.

2) The “Sexy” Chewbacca Costume

The last three things that should ever be made into “sexy” costumes: (3) Gary Busey. (2) Chewbacca. (1) Herpes.

1) The Grizzly Adams as Chewbacca Costume

Here’s a sentence I’m pretty sure you’ve never heard before:

Grizzy Adams killed a Wookiee and wore the skin as a suit at Comic-Con.

      The hairy-chested Chewbacca is very frightening.

      I actually would’ve guessed Chewbacca from the cardboard costume, which is more than I can say of any of the others, including the one emblazoned with the Star Wars logo. I give it a pass.
