    If you going to do a rogue clone, then maybe try a couple of plates (greaves and gaunts perhaps...) with the gear...to tie in the clone look. Maybe paint them camo to match or something...Just my 2cents...

    Possibility of a rogue clone...not really sure. Trust me I will think of a story for this character.

    I can see that....LOL! But I can handle a few laughs here and there. It's good to get off topic sometimes and have a gut buster out there once-in-a-while.

    Re: NEW! Custom Bounty Hunter Costume

    Aside from that though....here is another picture of what I am putting into the costume.



    I am thinking that this could be a charm that my hunter uses when he is against over-whelming odds in a fight. In other words it gives him good luck LOL!

    Re: NEW! Custom Bounty Hunter Costume

    Not much more to show around guys. I am searching for the camoflauge pants that I will be wearing but can't seem to find them. Then there is the under-type shirt that I am planning on wearing. A photo of that will come soon as well as the camoflauge type jacket that will be worn over that and then gloves. So far everything is going pretty good on my end with the costume.

    Now the only thing is head gear; I am still thinking about of what I am planing to use for the head stuff but I am not entirly sure. Any ideas guys?

    A few thoughts came to my head but I was not sure of it. I am not sure weather in using a bucket or not.

    Re: NEW! Custom Bounty Hunter Costume

    Finally, I found the camoflauge pants that have been hidding from me. I don't have anyone to take pictures of me while I am wearing them but they are well fitting and confortable. And might I say my favorite thing to wear. Like the boots these have also have been weathered which brings excitment to me.



    Worry not about the helmet it is something new that my mom bought for when we go ATV riding out in the dunes and away from Phoenix. From the caomflauge jacket I will be wearing with the rest I found a shirt that will go best with everything including the camoflauge pants. Here is a few pictures of them.




    Like the pants this is also well fitting and very confortable. I always enjoyed wearing the shirt during certain events to show off pride. But so far that is it. More will be coming. Still trying to think of something for head gear. I am still open for ideas?

    Re: NEW! Custom Bounty Hunter Costume

    Went searching online and found a good weapon that could be put into use for this costume hopefully.



    Now who wants to face this hunter LOL! I am not sure if I am really going to buy it but I am thinking that it would go good with this costume. There is probally a definit for the clonetrooper blaster I will use. But still I will be heading to the store thursday so I can take a look and see what there is to make this costume

    Just a warning, paint flakes off of those REALLY easily. Also, It (the paint) remains sticky, so If you hold it all day, your hands will have more paint on them than the sword does.

    Re: NEW! Custom Bounty Hunter Costume

    Really, I guess that is why I don't see it much at Wal*Mart when I go to the store. Thanks for telling me. I may just stick with the clone blaster.

    Actually, if you use Krylon Fusion, it will stick.

    Re: NEW! Custom Bounty Hunter Costume

    Note: I'm not trying to be a pain, so take the following comments with large grains of salt.

    You should actually build some armor.

    If you continue on the path that your on, you will look like a JROTC cadet and not a space age, sci-fi mando, bounty hunter (or farmer). The pentagram while it looks great with certain costumes would look very out of place with this costume, same with the dog tags.

    Try a OD green flight suit from a surplus store as a base, and than build upon that.

    Making templates even from carboard if your budget is limited is very easy to make, and would take less than 30 minutes to cut out the upper armor plates and paint them one color.

    you could than resin over this if you wanted, to complete the look. its been done before with great results on here somewhere. not sure where or who it was.

    so basically don't use "us military standard issue clothing" for a costume that is doesn't work for.

    paint your armor camouflage if thats the look you want, thats pretty easy as well and i can help you out with that if you choose that route.

    Any questions? i'm here to help/.

    Re: NEW! Custom Bounty Hunter Costume

    Most of the materials that are for the armor I am low on which means I can't get them. You don't know how much I want to make armor but I can't because of my low budget deal.
