    So it begins....

    .....I got the giant box of goodies from Cal yesterday! WOW.....such AMAZING work and detail!

    As with everyone...the helmet is gonna need some work to make it fit but it's soooooo beautiful I can hardly wait to start working on it! The gauntlets are amazing and the shins, chest armor and the rest are all fantastic!

    Thanks Cal!

    Now I have to go back and re-read all the tips and hints on how to make this all look like Zam!

    I'm pretty sure I asked you and Jamie to come to Edmonton to help me with it and you said no.....

    Hmmmm.....I don't know which version I have. I have whatever version you had when you found Jamie's gloves 'cuz you sent me those too.

    Maybe you need to "sell" the trip more... What else do you have to offer up there? Skiing? drinks? Jango costume parts?

    I had Jamie sold on it.....I told her that her and I would go shopping at the World's largest mall that we have here while JD worked on it. Funny....he didn't go for it.....

    Ohhhh yeah....THE mall has the world's largest indoor amusement park in it with the world's largest indoor roller coaster....plus a huge water park, NHL sized ice rink, hotel, ummm....full sized pirate ship......submarines.....performing seals.....a zillion bars, restaurants....mini golf, go carts, glow in the dark mini golf, paint ball, and something nutty like 750 stores. I think it takes up 8 city blocks. Oh....it has a couple of casinos, a movie theatre with a giant Yoda AND a fire breathing dragon ummm.....yeah....lots of stuff to see there.

    I admit I've done nothing with Zam except for admire the bits and pieces several times. I did manage to find all the leather I needed this past weekend along with the different dyes and such. Just a matter of actually doing it now.

    Re: So it begins....

    I actually got some work done on this on the weekend! We are VERY fortunate here in Badlands to have a member that actually use to work for the movie industry as a prop maker and for the last several years he's been building props and models etc. out of his beautiful home workshop for a living. He was a wealth of knowledge! He was drooling over MonCal's guantlets. He helped me get that helmet to fit and showed me all kinds of bondo tips and tricks. He also started cutting out the symbols on my chest armor and we figured out the best way to do them is actually something I'm already trained to do - piercing and sawing! So I dug out my saw.....realized I need new blades.....and that was the end of that story until I can get to the store that sells them....haha

    I'm SO excited!

    I've finally been working on this gear. I'm trying to get it done for the end of this month....or if not, for the end of April - both being little conventions we have up here. I have some pictures up on Facebook if anyone is interested in having a peek. It also has my Aayla stuff in there which I'm working on in between.

    If you don't mind me asking, where'd you get the lekku? They look pretty good. My wife is considering doing an Aayla as well.
