I wanted to (finally) stop by the TDH forums and introduce myself. First off let me say that I am a big supporter of the site. I watched with much anticipation as the team built Jeremy's custom suit, and it was nothing short of astounding.
I am an administrator and news editor over at the Boba Fett Fan Club. I am the ver'alor of the GA/AL clan of the Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club under Mand'alor Novall Talon. I'm also the web designer and ori'vod of the Mandalorian Brotherhood gaming site. Needless to say, I pretty much bleed Fett and Mandos.
My custom kit here is based on my character from the Star Wars Galaxies MMORPG. The armor is not from a template, it was all hand drawn and hand crafted by me. I've owned it almost a year, and have made several upgrades since it's initial completion.
^ Dragon*Con 2009
^ The inspiration. In-game General Lucas McCoy.
^ The real General Lucas McCoy
^ With cosplayers Shea, Victoria, and Slave Leia costumer Christy Marie herself.
^ Lucas' son is named Taylor "Cobrax" McCoy. For my cousin's 9th birthday I built him a custom kit to resemble Cobrax's set in game so that he could march in the Dragon*Con parade with the Mercs.
^ Part of the CNN interview.
^ Costuming expert Thomas Spanos and I.
My kit is a never ending WIP, with the next upgrade being a new set of thigh plates. I just recently started working on and completed new boots, and installed the LED in the chestplate. I have no interest in making another suit or another character ever basically. This will be my only one, but I get the feeling it will never be quite finished.
Hope you enjoyed the pics. I've always lurked around but never posted here before, shame on me!
