    I just ordered another jumpsuit (to add the second sleeves)... so once everything is put together I will try dyeing it a little more purple ... luckily I will have some extra material (the legs from the second suit) to try a formula first I also have to get my new vest done since this one was a first attempt.


    Thanks for the kind words too

    New upgrades!!! Vest, leg armor, backplate, gaunt hoses, etc...

    almost there... got a jet pack coming very soon too ... then the button holes for the leg armor and it is good to go I think

    Tell me all what you think

    Thanks,
    Tony

    I'm surprised no one has commented on how tall our local Vader is

    Hey Chuck, the vest is working out pretty good, I could finally get the chest armor pieces a little closer... albeit a little too close, but I am short and those pieces were made by someone 6'2" I believe, lol.

    Got my jet pack coming soon too

    I was going to say either your short or that Vader is Ginormous. Chest pieces do look alittle big but it fits your frame.

    maybe a little of both, uncostumed our Vader is 6'8" and I am 5'6" so there is over a foot difference, lol.

    yeah, it looks awesome when Vader towers over everyone... we walked into an event uncostumed and the coordinator said "You must be Vader."

    He was pictured in the Star Wars Insider this month too, for the kidney transplant story in Bantha Tracks.

    I here you on the chest armor sizing issue. I'm 5'8", and had to do some serious re-sizing for my armor to fit my body properly. Luckily, all of my armor I made myself, so it wasn't difficult at all... once I figured out the size I needed.

    Looking good, you're almost there!

    How do you keep the hoses in your sleeves?

    The end of the hoses are attached to a parachute clip (the plastic type like on backpacks and whatnot) and the other end is attached to the long sleeve under the short sleeve by means of a Tandy line 24 snap (some people sew them also)

    I'll take some pics of the attachment tonight and post them
