    Thanks for all the compliments! We had a great time and my son was stoked to have the Secret Apprentice suit done in time.

    No, he isn't as tall as me yet though he passed his mom and grandma already.

    That is awesome - what did you use for Starkiller's Shoulder Pauldrons? I'm looking at making the costume myself, and I haven't been able to find something that would work as well as you've done it.

    No,

    Your suit looks awesome MandalorFett!

    What's your parts build up?

    You definitely rocked the Fett pose in the first pic.


    Any more shots?

    I used sintra. First I cut paper templates and fit them to my son's build. I heated them up and bent them to fit, then I did the painful process of fitting the collar (neck ring) on the pieces. After that I tried to rub-n-buff 'em, but I can't seem to get it right and burnt a hole through my palm trying to heat it up Seeker style. Then I went with chrome spray paint, black and gray weathering. For the restraining bolt I used a small storage cup for tacks and finishing nails, then cut off the tip of a Stormie communicator to make the middle part of it. Straps and clips came from JoAnn's Fabrics.
