    Jul 22, 2012, 8:52 PM - Deadland GMH ESB paint up for Katzybugz #1

    As part of the Fem Fett armor that I am painting for Katzybugz she has commissioned me to paint up her GMH lid as well. All I have to say is that this is my first one. All I have to say is that it is really darn cool to hold a piece of Fett history in my hand. This is a rotocast GMH and to me seems to be just as strong as any of the fiberglass lids that Fettpride has produced. So far I have started the process of filling in all the physical damage that is present in the GMH at which point I will go back and add in the ESB damage. Well on to a pic since there is just a light coat of primer on it and a lot of work to go to get it to her in time for Celebration VI.

    I know that she's been biting at the bit in excitement for you to get this helmet.

    Alright quick and dirty update!!! Back panels are done and I will now be moving onto the trim, key slots and mandibles. I started working on my templates last night and should be done today. If all goes well I should have the trim, key slots and mandibles done by Monday Tuesday at the latest.
    on to the pics I do plan to take some better ones tomorrow out in the sun with the armor.

    Aw! I can not wait!! It feels like I have been waiting forever to see this come together. Patience is not a virtue of mine! The helmet is looking great... Not that I had any doubt

    So my helmet came in today and I literally teared up seeing it. (yes I'm a girl haha) but seriously. It's gorgeous. And there's just something about holding my helmet for the first time. I know plenty of people have been working on their costumes for long periods of time. I started my journey at the beginning of this year and to finally get this piece of the costume. It really struck me. I can't say enough about Rob (Deadland). I really appreciate how you were able to work with such a tight schedule and never once complained and emailed me updates frequently. I will recommend your services over and over. Thanks again. I am beyond pleased and can't wait to show off your painting job at c6!!
