Hi guys, as this is my first post the TDH, I will introduce myself as is customary.
My name is Phil from England.
I am a 501st Stormtrooper with the UK Garrison.
I am also making a Line Officer costume as 2nd costume for me.
I have 2 kids, a 7 and a 9 year old.
I am building both kids costumes for the 2013 year.
For the 7 yr old, I am making a mini TK Stormtrooper for him in ANH style.
I have a build thread for this over on the FISD, First Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment.
And for my 9 year old I am building a Mini Jango Fett, which brings me over here.
I have been using your site for a while for reference pics and threads, and have now decided to join in and contribute.
Here are my lids alongside each other.
Mini TK, Regular TM TK and Mini Jango.
I started with a mini blue boiler suit.
Here are the WIP pictures.
i do plan to hide the Jet pack straps, but for today the straps are over the flack vest.
Left view, I have a left gauntlet but need to make the strapping bigger.
The Westars are made from painted wood and plastic parts.
i still have a way to go and here is a list..
black helmet stripes
shorten boiler suit
Any help, advice or support is appreciated.
