    Thanks! Hey, you're gauntlets arrived safe and sound yesterday. Just got around to opening them tonight to make sure the post office didn't use them for softball practice. Back to the base-coating again

    I've noticed in your auctions, you always say the gloves are for medium to large hands . . . . what if you're some freak of nature like me who has freakishly small hands? Do you make anything to accomodate us?

    Because the base glove material is so stretchy, you'd have to have REALLY small hands. I have had auctions w/ the small size before, but they're just not that much in demand so I don't do them that often.

    If you win an auction (or do a private purchase), you can always let me know you want the smaller size and I can make you a pair per spec as long as you're willing to wait an extra couple of weeks for them to be completed.

    The same goes for the material to be used on the accents. If you want it to match your vest, you can send the specific material you want to be used and I will use that and take a little bit off your final price.

    Here are pics of my Slave I gloves compared to Dean O's Slave I gloves. Mine are the lighter gloves and were an early version. Shows how far Shelby has come. Heck he may have even made more improvements since Dean's version...

    I am hoping once I find a glove with the button closure wrist and get in the right gauntlet, back of palm and back of finger material that I can beg and convince Shelby to make me a set from those materials.

    Yep, those are versions 1.5 and 2. I am now on version 3 (which includes slight pattern revisions and perfecting dye to be a uniform gray). Whatever version I do with the new material will be version 4

    The funny thing is, I myself, do not have a pair of my newer gloves (or actually even my older ones for that matter).

    Boy, you really DID lighten those up didn't you Art!

    lol, KEEP THE NEXT PAIR! lol... Is it just that you don't have a costume ready so the gloves aren't a priority or is it a nagging in the back of your head, something like, "well the NEXT version will be the best and I'll keep a pair of those" and you just keep making revisions?

    Heh heh. Left them in the back window of the car a couple days too long (doesn't take long in the summer Georgis sun) but I STILL sold them for $120 on eBay WHEWHOO!!!!

    Shelby, we are def going to have to get together with this new material and see if we can't make version 4 the final revision!

    I HAD a costume, but there have been so many new and more accurate parts available that I've been upgrading a LOT lately (i.e. gauntlets, helmet, jet pack), so there's not much of a finished costume left.

    I had also refiberglassed my mannequin originally to be in a more dynamic pose (none of that straight as an arrow and leaning against the wall for my display). However, with all the other revisions I'm doing, it seemed like a good time to make the pose of the mannequin even more interesting. I've been doing lots of sketches on how I'd like to have the mannquin now and I've narrowed it down to two poses and variations of those poses. Even considered some crazy ideas like sculpting out a section of burnt Sarlacc tentacle to lay at our boy's feet on the base

    Basically, I'm waiting for warmer weather so I can fiberglass again.

    Any opinions on the base? I've considered doing a section of Tatooine packed sand dune sort of thing, or possible a section of skiff flooring.

    And Art, haven't you learned that nothing is ever final on this costume?

    oh, a ROTJ boy...I hadn't realized...how...cute...

    lol

    For rotj depending on the pose you've got I would go for skiff flooring. I like the sarlaac tentacle, but if you did that I think sand would go better.

    Of course (rotj knock coming) you could just make a large pit in the middle of the room, sculpt a huge sarlaac mouth and just have a recording of a baby whining coming from inside. People ask what it is, say, "oh that's my rotj Fett" lol

    Just kidding,
    I personally like the skiff floor better,

    Yep, I would definitely have to lose the skiff flooring idea if I did the Sarlacc tentacle. Of course I could do mangled skiff floor "wreckage".

    I like the ESB costume okay, but in the end I prefer the ROTJ suit. I think the gauntlets are nice accentuation to the maroon areas on the bucket. Also, there just isn't the great and extensive costume documentation that's out there and available for the ROTJ outfit.

    I am going to do an ESB bucket, though, for the obvious reasons of it being a much more precise look. I like the combination of that w/the ROTJ suit, and there are a lot of promo pics out there w/ that combination.

    Ahh, the good old days when people only did the pre-production suit. Nowadays I don't see ANYONE doing that version.
