wow, those look great
wow, those look great
These are going to be really nice!
Pics are up in the gallery of Ripcode's set & of the first part of Stone Rook's set. I've got a busy few days ahead of me so I probably won't be posting more pics until Sunday night.
Mine arrived today. They look AWESOME! So well worth the $$.
I love the feel of the horsehair. Really makes me feel like I scalped a wookiee
I'm Fetting it up this weekend, so I'll get pics of them in action!
OK, I just look at my Boba Fett reference CD with the super close up high res pics of M.O.M. and there is definately 4 braids in that configuration I just mentioned. Also, all 4 of them are wrapped together with more black wraps right behind the shoulder armor.
This got me looking, and it appears the M.O.M. braids could also be the ROTJ movie braids. The ESB and ROTJ "Special Edition" Bobas have different sets of braids, as does the AOSW exhibit suit. Looking through the Chronicles book at the 3 Pre-Pro suits, the M.O.M. braids are the Pre-Pro suit braids....the one with the "eyes or ears" drawn on top of the helmet. They are the only set that have turks head knots and the black/blond braid on it.

Just let me know when you want the money.
I got a chance to work on the first of the extended sets this weekend. Here are a couple of progress pics. The larger versions are in the gallery.
Here's the 4th braid I was talking about at the M.O.M. exhibit. Same small size as the black/white braid, but just next to it. It looks like it ties into the black/white one at the bottom in that picture.
....and like I said I noticed those M.O.M. braids are from the one Pre-Pro "Ears helmet" suit....
....and the configuration of how they are looped....
Close up of the various knots....

Usually I do. My work just happened to be closed today so I'm working on Boba stuff at home.
I got more pics if you want them.
Looks like the one with the turks head knots is a big loop tha has two ends coming off it with some wrappings a couple inches down, each with the turks head knot on it, kinda forming a figure 8 in that last pic, only the ends are separate. Somehow that other little thin dark braid connects along the side of it, and there is yet another "tail" somewhere linked in there.
The other two are just loops with one long section hanging down. So, that's 2 "tails"...the turks head knot one (black/white thin) also has 2 "tails on the bottom, and somewhere up the length, just another "tail" hanging off by itself?

I just finished one of the Turk head knots for the first extended set. Larger versions of the pics are in the gallery. Opinions welcome.
anyone know what that clip on the right shoulder of the ears suit is all about?
They used it to attach the cape across the front of the costume from the typical position we normally see across the front of the body, and clip there.
i don't think i really got any good pics of them, but the biggest thing i noticed about the new braids is that the industrial velcro on my costume seemed to have no interest in sticking to them!
that has been the downfall of my last 2 sets of braids, so this makes me happy
I got my set yesterday. These look awesome!
Braids look awsome Julie!
Here's a pic of what I am calling the Extended Set. I've still got to glue the knots in place & trim up the sinew.
Looks cool! Are you doing another run sometime after this first set of 6 is done?
Is it just the lighting or is there a gray colored tail hanging down with the rest of the tails at the bottom on the left?

they look great...if you ever do another run...i'll jump on it
Paging BH795 & Loanstar: Please check your private messages.
If I do another run it won't be until after C4, also the prices would go up. Just the black & white braid takes about 1 hour to do & the 2 four turn Turk head knots take about 2 hours each to braid & completely tighten.
Fantastic work Julie!!
Julie has been updating me with pics and links to pics -
can't wait till i get mine in the mail!
