I'm sitting here trying to get some more stuff done on my Boba and I figured I'd take a break. I just figured out how to get my chest lights attached to my chest armor and I have just finished sticking industrial strength velcro to the back of my armor. I have a seamstress coming by tomorrow to take my vest and sew velcro to it. I don't have time for snaps this year. She's also gonna have to let out the seams in the flight suit I got from Gabriel. Apparently my butt and thighs are a little disproportioned with the rest of my body Hopefully tomorrow my gauntlets and wookie braids will come in the mail. Still waiting on my replacement belt from Taco, but I'm sure he's on it. Hotshot says the blaster will be here by Wednesday. Man I hope so. The only thing I'm lacking is a jet pack. I tried and tried to get one by Halloween, but to no avail. My local Hastings had a Star Wars costume contest a couple of days ago and a stormtrooper won. I'm sure I woulda won if I had been ready. There are plenty of other contests on Friday, but I'll feel incomplete without that jet pack. IDK, whatta ya think? Me and several friends are going out in various SW costumes in a 15 passenger van. My wife is going as Padme, and she'll look fantastic, believe me. This will be the first year in a SW costume and I'm pumped. I'm not into it to win a contest, but it sure would be nice to be recognized. It's alot of work as everybody on here knows. Anyway...just wanted to chat and share my trials and tribulations. Only 5 days left and alot to do. Still checking on here for a jp. Overnight one to me and I'll feel much better.
