    Thanks everyone for your comments on this. I am just about done. And I sooo need a break from working on this costume now. Its fun and great to see it getting done, but keeping up such a high level of detail for so long is killing me.

    Next pics will be with the whole suit on and finished. I have a bunch of sewing to finish up on the flightsuit though.....

    thanks

    Are those Man O War gauntlets? That's what I have and they are a tiny bit oversized, but I'm 6' so it works out for me. For weathering, I used dry brush black and burnt umber acrylics, depending on the reference CD. I've been religiously following it. Not perfect, but close. I recommend dry brushing acrylic, then sponging or toweling it a little to get the effect you want. Not too dark or heavey. It can be wiped off before it dries if you make mistakes. Despite what I have read many say, I have lightly sealed all my armor with a high gloss sealer to keep the rub n buff from dulling or rubbing onto other stuff. It really hasn't compromised the shine significantly. Your costume is looking really nice.

    Thanks for the weathering tips, i need them. Its one of the last things i have to do armor wise. The Gauntlets are FP's. Had some MOW's prior to those they were real nice too.

    That back looks pretty cool! Don't forget to take a break, or you will kill yourself working on it.

    Well after a few set backs with the JP harness, (and having to remove that back to fix them) I am almost done. Velcro is sewed onto the flightsuit, knees are done with alum darts, Jet Pack harness will be done on tuesday when i get a few parts in. Boots and shoe armor is done. Just have to dye my rope belt that i am using for C3. Didnt quite have the time to make the leather braided belt yet. Will probably go the mjtrim route when i get to it after C3 and before the release. Thanks for all your support and comments. I will have some finished photos up this week before C3 and a bunch after it with everyone else. Of course that will be finished minus the final braided belt -sigh-

    OK, i've been super busy. Got my knees in the other day BIG thanks to JD of that. Got them painted and my aluminum darts installed.

    Also finished up the last outstanding touches on my gauntlets aside from the weathering which i have to figure out how i am going to do that.

    JP is done in the paint dept. Just needs to get some weathering, details and final assembly. Oh and a harness of course

    see the pics and thanks for looking

    I believe that photo was taken just a few minutes before you converted your suit to the "Kamino" version

    Let me tell you Kamino Jango was not fun. Took me 5 hours to dry out completely and actually when i changed the t-shirt i was wearing under the suit was still damp.

    Did your photo stay dry in that plastic??
    ahh the good times

    It was great meeting you at C3. I saw the suit in person and it looked great. I was proud to Jango around the convention with ya.
