I was surfing around doing my daily Fett research and making sure I maintain my nerdychlorines on Fett. And looking at the photos I'm seeing the condition of the suits really deteriorating and just plain falling apart and gathering extra scratches. I mean if you wanted to recreate what is or was on tour it's like you have to recreate how it looked at that particular time because 5 years from now it's going to look radically different if you try to keep up with wear and tear of the real suit.
I'm painting 2 helmets presently and the 2 gents having me do these have choose to have ESB helmets as they appeared on screen. And I thought is this a new trend with the suits looking different on each exhibition might as well have one that looks more familiar when before it was make it like the tour suits. Don't get me wrong I love this idea.
Another good example is if you make the undersuit light gray as it is today it's not correct to when the suits were brand new in blue/gray. So if you go the light gray what suit have you made? since these are fading quickly and will be almost white again in no time (a bit exagerative).
Anyway, I'm producing all the parts of my suit as if they are brand new and then taking them down to the point I need to. I'm going to make a PP2 for sure and I want to recreate how it looked then and not how it would look now. Anyway I hope this makes sense and was wondering what everyone's thoughts were on this.
