    Sep 18, 2013, 10:30 AM - Is it good enough for 501st? #1

    Hello all

    Just wanted to post this up here to get some feedback. There is a small Con happening here in Arkansas this weekend and some of the local 501st that I armor party with are setting up a table and Blast a Trooper. This is my first project and first paint up. The guys wanted the bucket on the table as kind of a show piece, but i want to know if you guys think it's good enough to help represent the 501st and TDH. I still have to go and get a new visor and cut it out. I painted my visor black because I messed it up pretty good in a lacquer thinner accident. I need some Fett minded individuals to have a look.

    thank you

    Justin

    You are more than qualified for a TDH/501st showoff, especially that you eye-painted (stencils used only as a reference) the helmet.

    Awesome job Justin. I wish I could paint like that, especially for my first helmet paint job. Great work

    Great job, I am about ready to start painting my helmet & I hope it turns out as well as yours. Mine will be ROTJ though. You should be proud to show it off.

    if you build the rest of your costume with that level of attention to detail, you'll have nothing to worry about.

    thank you again everybody ... just got back from the Con here in Ft Smith. It was fun and the bucket turned a few heads, but being there made me really want to have the whole suit done... patience

    n00b question - but where is there a list of what criteria makes a build 501st approved? I'm a lifetime SW fan (saw all 3 originals in the theater when they came out), but only just getting into costuming. I'm essentially "drinking from the firehose" right now in terms of information, so any quicker ways for me to get going would be super rad.

    Thanks in advance!

    Checkout the costume reference library @
    501st Legion: Vader's Fist

    That breaks it all down.

    Happy building!
