    Apr 19, 2006, 11:28 AM - yay for wearing an upgraded helmet! #1

    Just wanted to express my excitement...
    Got to premier my new JD helmet with the costume last night at the Star Wars One Man Trilogy in Minneapolis. It was fabulous. The helmet still needs some work (like the right color paint for the light blue, darn you Krylon Short Cuts!), but it sure beats my old Rubies getup! I will post pics tomorrow.
    Keep on huntin'

    Glad to hear great things about the JD! I gotta order one of those once I get the cash. Looking forward to the pictures!

    Hey guys, as promised, got some pics. I will call this my JD 1.0. Any helpful criticism would be nice, though I do realize I need the right color light blue, and weathering, and basic touch ups. Anyone who has extra Krylon Short Cuts Ocean Blue, I am willing to buy!
    I think you can access my facebook page for these very detailed in process pics... I will post some pics directly soon.

    There are a couple pics at the One Man show in Minneapolis in full gear.
    Keep on huntin'!

    Ok guys,
    Sorry about the non facebookability of most of you. Here are a few of the inprocess pictures at predominant stages. The last one is me wearing it at the One Man Show (with my wife, so no ogling her!)
    Like I said, it is in it's very first stage, and I know I have work to do, but I hope you like it! It makes all the difference compared to the uncustomized Rubies one I had!
    Peace out
    Pete

    Isn't that one of those new VW commercials? With the little evil creature in the passenger seat?

    Costume looks great! And from your wife's smile, it looks like she "puts-up" with your uncommon hobby, good. You're definitely a lucky man!

    Sweet. I just about went to that show, but my suit is apart right now for a few repaints and upgrades. Should have it back together soon & hope to attend more events in the metro area. Great looking bucket there
