    Aug 20, 2005, 8:36 PM - Superjedi's costume. . . so far #1

    Hi all,
    I got some new pieces in this week. So I wanted to put on everything that I had so far and my wife snapped some pictures this afternoon. Don't know how she focused on me with her eyes rolling like they were, but she got a couple of decent shots.
    Anyway, here are the pics.

    Looks like your off to a nice start. You should have the mods move this to the Sarlacc Pit. Did you paint those pieces yourself?

    Thanks guys!
    TK-Fett, yes, I painted the helmet and gauntlets myself.
    I also just got an ammo belt from Rimshot, and I'm in the process of weathering it

    Oh no. . . you don't understand. Her eyes actually rolled so hard they fell right out of her skull and went bouncing across the floor. Took us almost an hour to find the right one. It was under the sofa! It was a little dusty, but we rinsed it off and popped it back in and it was good as new.

    Fettster,
    Yes that's a BM suit and vest. His stuff is great!
    And Desloc. . . sheesh! I forgot to put my neck on for the pic. Thanks for reminding me, I'll have to look around for it.

    UPDATE: Feb 19th
    Hi all,
    Didn't realize it had been so long since I added any progress shots to this thread.
    Here's where I'm at as of today. Basically my whole lower body is done. All I need is the torso armor (chest/collar/back/shoulders) and I'm finished!
    Oh yeah, I do have some Wookiee braids, but I'm still trying to figure out the best way to attach them to the vest, so they're not shown in these pics.
    Enjoy!
    Eric

    The cod and knees are FP vac-formed pieces that I bought 2nd hand from someone else on the board. But I did all the construction and painting.

    That looks fantastic so far.. and the 'go away' mat is a nice touch as well..

    I was looking forward to this

    oh and don't forget I'm expecting a jet pack tutorial out of you some day down the line..

    Awesome job on everything.. and glad to see you can still hold a pose with the snickering and comments I'm sure you were receiving

    Lookin sharp Superjedi, everthing seems to fit you very well. The costume looks good on you.
    As far as the wookie braids go, take a safety pin and put it under your vest, run the needle part up through the vest and through the middle of the 3 braids so its not seen, use 2 or 3 if needed (one for each braid if needed).

    Thanks all!
    And LionsPride, thanks for the tip on the braids. . . sounds pretty simple. I'll try it out and see how secure they are.

    You remind me of my electronic talking 12" Boba Fett figure... No neck!

    Your costume is looking great so far! Can wait to see it completed!
