    Jul 29, 2010, 1:51 PM - My new Mannequin! #1

    I got a mannequin from a friend and I put my ESB Boba gear onto it. Right now it is in my workshop... gotta work on the Mrs. to let him go into the family room!

    I still need to redo the hands to put gloves on and fix the pose... but it was free so I can't complain! Tell me what you think!

    Once my ESB Boba is complete my mannequin is going in the man cave in our basement. I think Boba will do an excellent job guarding my football and hockey jerseys.

    Yes... I saw a member here do that in a thread... seems easy enough to do.

    Sorry brother, but no. I have found the fists are the best for reworking. PM coming.

    Mannequin posing is exactly what I am going to do with my Fett costume (when I get one! hehe). I figured why would I go through all the trouble and expense to get an outfit and have it spend most of the year in a box? I have a space in my office that is perfect for it. I looked at mannequins online, and most of the males had very metrosexual poses...very un-Fett like! hehe

    So I thought I will just build my own. I spent some time thinking and looking around at Home Depot and I came up with a design that will use PVC piping for the shoulder, neck, and arm assembly (keeps it lighter up top so it isn't top heavy, and the PVC pipe and joints will allow me to position the arms how I want them before gluing them together), metal piping for the legs and inner torso support, part of a cardboard concrete form for the torso, a oval wood insert into the form that will keep the torso shape plus provide a place to screw in the flat threaded parts for the metal piping, a wooden floor stand with carved and painted boots (hiding the flat metal connector for the metal pipes, plus allowing me to unscrew the "feet" and stand so I can dress and undress the mannequin). For the hands I am just going to get some of those poseable "artist" reference hands so I can position them how I want (maybe epoxy the joints to keep the shape?), and then for the head, I am just going to get one of those Styrofoam styling heads.

    I might look rather funny without a costume on it, but I think it will serve my purposes. I have a feeling because of the metal and the cardboard form, it might resemble the Tin Man a bit! hehe

    question for you guys who has made adjustments on mannequins, I have one that's 6'3" and I'm only 5'10". Is it difficult to cut off about 4" off the legs or something?

    Is it a two part manne or a one piece. I found that if you are willing to cut and paste then you really want it out of the mid section to keep it from looking like Cotton on King of the Hill.

    Don't bother with the head as you are just putting a lid on it anyway. Mine is a 4x4 cut about 12 in long
