    Total cost?
    I got the helmet on the RPF for $84 shipped
    The new tube stripes were $8
    The ears were $25
    The lenses were cut from extra Face-shield used for Boba $0
    Paint was under $5
    so, I guess that would be $122

    I agree with the others bro, looks to much like makeup. Should have left it alone. I went home last night after seeing this thread and I darkend mine up a bit more. I'll post some pics later tonight.

    I don't know Nate. I kind of liked the first one, but the second isn't bad. That's what I love about sandy buckets... you really are never "wrong"

    I do the same weathering with acrylic. You could grab some more tans for the eyes if you wanted to make another change.

    I do a little different technique, but you get the same idea...

    I'll start a new thread with some of my TKs. I don't want to take away from your awesome work here. I'm still amazed this is a CE...

    Well since everyone hates the new paint under the eyes,
    I'll toss this one in the trash & start over

    So...
    I went to fix the eyeshadow problem
    clipped the door knob on the way outof the "Star War Room"
    And dropped the helmet on the tile floor.

    Looks like it's been dropped, banged up, and dragged thru a sandstorm...

    In other words, an amazing job!!!

    Yes it did.
    one small chip on the left tube is all the damage it sustained
    I left it on there for weathering
    here's the helmet with the completed costume

    Yes it looks awesome - great job - sort of odd juxtaposition... Sandtrooper on the infield... looks like you slid into home plate.

    Again.. great Job.

    How long did the painting process actually last for the sand part itself? Curious to how many coats you used as well.
