    Oct 8, 2008, 10:29 AM - New CC Jango knee armor #1

    Ciao belli!
    Here my last update on my costume.
    i rebult my old (made by me!) vacum formed knees armor to use like master





    Silicone mold and first pull in cold cast





    IMHO the result is very nice.
    So i also made the mastrers for the side parts and the molds too
    this is the first pull (in CC)



    and here 2 video (in Italian...),one while i open the mold and 1 of the first pull ( also with a little fight with my girl... )

    About our stupid faces...i only can say that meaby we drunk too much wodka lemon...

    and finally the knee ready to wear!



















    weathering by my friend snowflake (Saverio)

    Awesome work Dark-Side, I'm pretty sure that your first knees were made by you! And, as always, you have done an impresive, clean, and really accurate work!

    When I see them it's like see an (good looking, of course) Italian girl, like this



    Well, no more words

    i'm the weathering guy here... when Darkside showed me the alu finish i felt my jaws falling away!

    About the weathering, i know it's not a great job, but i had very limited resources and time!

    anyway, coldcast FTW!!!

    You guys better watch out, Dark-Side's head is going to get so BIG that it won't fit into his screen-cast helmet anymore!!!!

    Beautiful knees again... as for the weathering, so so! J/K

    Those most certainly are gorgeous knees, no doubts there.

    Still, I'd feel much less paranoid of damaging/breaking them by kneeling if they were Hyperfirm style rubber knees.

    I'm really happy you like my work!
    Cruzer,don't worry,my head is ok and my helmet will fit on it perfectly!

    About make them in Hyperfirm i want say this:
    My philosophy for my costume is to try to have all the pieces "movie accurate".That means,try to reproduce the same shape with the same materials.
    So in the real jango costume the knee are in fiberglass (meaby also CC) but not in rubber\Hyperfirm.
    Other point... this my first CC pull in my life, and speaking with Cruzer, I understad tha i was really lucky to find the right "formula" for a really nice CC looking with out make 10 test pull and buy special kind of resins.
    You never could have the same result with Hyperfirm.
    I made a stupid joke with some my friends telling them that my knees was made in real aluminum and everyone belived that!
    If i use the polish for the silver on them, you can use them like a mirrow!

    About the damaging/breaking, i can say that my first knee was in "ugly plastic" vacumformed (no ABS or STIRENE) and i never broken them while i was trooping.(i only broke a side piece in the bag when i was going on the C4 in LA...) Those are in fiberglass, and for a normal use ( walk,make pics with people and kids or display) they are enought strong

    Sure that if you want go on Kamino and make a match fight with obi wan, you should broken them!

    "RUN"
    mmmm in this moment i really don't have a lot time to make a big run...this weekend i'll try to make another kit just to understand better the time to make them and how much material i must use...after i will estimate price and how many copies i'll can do.


    P.S. Teacher Cruzer please correct all my english errors!

    P.P.S. FettOfficer I'm not Spanish....I'm Italian!.....

    I didn't undertand a word you said!
    As for Spanish and Italian, isn't it the same thing! You and Benkenove sure do look like twins!

    This is like waving candy in front of a bunch of kids and then not sharing, if you can't do a run. Don't you guys take like 3 hours lunches over there? Maybe you can hire Snowflake. Let me know if you need any help.

    Dark-side, I'm sure that your CC resin knees are plenty strong... I'm just a paranoid sort. I'm always terrified that after all of the hard work I put into scratch building my own knee armor ( and glueing my fingers together more than once ), that I'll kneel down once for a photo with a little fan and have my knee explode.

    For me, having rubber knees would be more for my piece of mind than any thing else. With that said, I still think that your CC knees are absolutely georgeous and if I had the opportunity to purchase a set from you, I'd jump at the chance.

    And....I have 2 hours for the lunch and i go to my house to eat Spaghetti alla carbonara, Spaghetti all'amatriciana and other kind of Italian pasta!
