ESB to ROTJ helmet conversion...

    Re: ESB to ROTJ helmet conversion...

    Fantasitc work R_Boba . .I've been looking forward to seeing your finished helmet! You've almost convinced me to do a ROTJ myself, but I'l resist the temptation for now, or buy another bucket lol.

    It must have been a real labour of love to apply all that weathering. He certainly looks like he's been round the galaxy a few times .. but that used look is what characterizes Star Wars and you have captured that feeling perfectly with your bucket.

    I really like your costume display too. Is your suit complete or do you still have a few things to finish?

    Great work and a real inspiration.

    This is great! There aren't a lot of pure ROTJ costumes on here, so it's good to see one that's so well done.

    thnx people!!

    well Welsh, it's almost done, as good as sort of say.

    I need to make new gloves, but my bro isn't in a hurry to get the leather ones for me I want to use.

    hmm... the LEDs in the rangefinder should arive within the next 2 weeks at my school...

    Im gonna try my casting skills etc by making a replica of my own blaster (since it broke in 2) and then get the iron grip from my original and place that in between the 2 (what I hope to become) rubber parts, the main gun and the stock.

    and I might... just might but I don't think so... repaint my knee armor, as those have ESB weathering...

    then I also need toe spikes, but I'm no hurry with those...

    and then some extra's I might do in the future like chest light display, lit up jet pack beacon etc.

    I might also create a new cod and backplate if I get the hang of the fiberglas stuff etc... but that's a plan not suited for anytime soon.

    Awesome work as always bud! I love the mannequin setup you got there, I wish I could do the same instead of leaving my costume in a bin on the floor!

    The helmet looks fantastic. :thumbup
    I have seen your progress on the entire costume since you started and i must say you have created a masterpiece. A museum quality work of art in my opinion.

    Well done.

    to ya.

    OMG!!!!! That is freakin' amazing!!!:thumbup :thumbup :thumbup Looks like that helmet made the trip to the Sarlacc Pit and back out...twice!!!

    Makes me consider re-painting my first bucket in ROTJ version (and it's not the first time that I think about doing that). Awesome, just awesome!!! My bucket's off to you.

    thnx
    thing that's starting to annoy me now is that I didnt sculpt it...

    I'm going to try sculpting soon for my new costume, and see if I have a neck for making fiberglas buckets, armor pieces from sculpts I made... even latex masks...

    if I can do that... oohooo... I could make everything I have ever wanted!!
