    thats looking great, what did you glue that together with?
    I use 60 grit sand paper and high strength hot glue from Home Depot then I spread it down in a W pattern, holds great!!

    working on the ear caps, battery compartment and the leds, running them through the side of the helmet.

    That's great! Nice way to conceal a non-Star Wars item. Very clever.

    I like the idea for your gauntlets, in fact your whole rig is gonna be really nice.

    got a massive amount of work done on the helmet, and its pretty much done, did the dome, fiberglassed the inside, painted and weathered. Wore it to Fan Expo 2011 along with my original armor set i did a few years a go




    everything together at fan expo




    i weathered it on the fly while in the hotel room and im not quite happy with some of it so ill be working more on the smaller details

    I really like the look of it all! The helmet gives an evolution look from clone trooper helmets with that little v shape at bottom of visor. The range finder looks cool as well! A really nice touch to the bucket! Great work on rhea whole costume!

    I would recommend that if you're going for an "assault" type look, the addition of shins/knees (but especially knees) might be beneficial. If you're in the front lines, you'll often have uncleared obstacles to get through and may often have to fire from a kneeling position to allow those behind you to get off a shot. Just my .02
