    WOW...great stuff Britt!....thanks for taking all the awesome pics....

    Here are a few that give you an Idea of what kind of lighting we had to work with in the exhibit, with no flash and no addtional lighting source......also keep in mind these are scaled down to fit this board, so we'll post the higher-res ones later...

    to me, this is what it actually looked like in the exhibit...in terms of lighting.

    Enjoy..

    Pay special attention to the red brown color of the jumpsuit. That is what it is, no adjustment to color or lighting needed. Its quite dark.

    Missed? As in details? Colors??? Elaborate on that. The big issue is there are multiple versions of armor and soft goods that we have been using on our costume. I think it is best to just pic one exhibit and base it off of that and the pics of that stop to ensure the details are correct.

    Thanks Evan... as mentioned I'm a newbie and I think your right, I've tried looking at all aspects of all versions and have exhausted myself with detail? I'm trying to create the best ESB that I can? it's gonna be with the help and guidance of you uys to steer me in the right direction...

    Re: The fett in person

    The AOSW and MOM jumpsuits never appeared to be exactly the same colors to me. I know one of our members here has been able to touch the ROTJ MOM jumpsuit and said they flipped open the thigh pouch and the completely un-weathered material inside was "ESB light blue". Now, the AOSW one has always appeared to have a more "purply hue" to it.....

    Re: The fett in person

    Thanks for the heads up Mr Fett... I'll try to concentrate on one version and one version only!! lol
    I know there is 50/50 split between ESB & ROTJ versions within this community (not gonna open that box).
    But as stated any guidance now and in future will not fall no deaf ears.

    Re: The fett in person

    I would believe it on the light blue... I didnt think to flip open the pouch though... but there are, like I said before, 5 ROTJ under-suits. Each has the ability to be different.

    Hey, I think due to the dye type used this suit has seriously faded over time. Just something to consider if you're making a suit more close to the time of filming or today as it sits.

    Congrats to everyone who went to C4. I wished my timing in the Military service was more...well...to my favor. I feel so jealous when I saw the first pics indicating that the Fett suit was on display....with NO GLASS around.

    Kudos to everyone. I want a REF CD of those pics....add me to the list.

    I am not sure where it is supose to attach but it is attached via velcro... I think it velcros behind the ammo belt or perhaps the vest.

    Man, this is like waiting for Christmas to come when you're 7 years old, but better.

    It's "canon".


    Raised center diamond? Now you're gonna get everyone cutting out little rectangles of scrap plastic and gluing them in there to be more accurate I think.

    My wife was with me at the exhibit.
    she said "that looks just like yours" when she saw the real deal.
    so...
    just paint it like mine, Michelle said so
