Okay, so I've finally decided to make my own WIP-thread. I don't have too much to show yet, but I'm the kind of person who needs to write things down as I do them. So where better to make an in-progress thread than in this fantastic forum!?
To me, planning is half the fun. Which is why I'll probably be asking random questions as I move along on my costume. I need to have everything planned, because if I come to a stop and don't know what to do from there, I have a bad habit of giving up. Which I won't do this time. Cheer me on, will you?
Okay, over to the WIP then... I'm currently working on a scratchbuilt cardboard helmet (Rafal's templates), and I only have the dome left of the basic shaping. I'll post pictures later today. I have also ordered and paid for one of Asok's cold cast helmets, as well as a cape, spats and wookie braids from Woodman. So at least I have begun the process. But due to no studies and no job, money is the biggest issue here. So this might take a while....
And then I have a question. I've figured that I want to do the ROTJ SE Boba, and I can't seem to find any good reference pics of the helmet alone in the SE section of the gallery. But that helmet, is it ESB? With the yellow killstripes and all... I want to start looking for paints, that's why I ask. So any suggestions to colours and where I can get them would be nice.
