that's awesome! like you stated, aside from a bit of tightening up it's looks stellar!
Thats an outstanding Rav!
Wow Amesome job. We're going to have to step up our game to match that one nice one bro.
Thanks for all the kind words guys
I got the last little tweaks done tonight- weathered the flightsuit and armor vest, shortened and weathered the cape, dry brushed the pistols, shortened the shin armor by an inch, weathered the gloves, and adjusted the padding in the helmet.
The girlfriend is extremely excited to wear this outfit this weekend. We'll definitely make sure to get some pictures of it in action and post em up.
Now that this outfit is out of the way, I'm free to work on my mando
whats happening this weekend? (Today tomorrow) Will you get outdoor pics? Scenery, industrial? Dude, I cant wait to see this AWESOME suit in real world pics. IT LOOKS GREAT!! Now I can make a set for the wifey (she said she'd only wear it once for pics, but thats better than not).
That looks fantastic. Your level of attention to detail is impressive. I like the weathering, too.
Nice kit!! Wish I could get mine finished... Ugh...
I think you can do it LadySythe, your custom Sith work is exceptional, and you attention to detail... wow.
Thanks adonian, but one must have money in order to work such a feat In time it will be done. Most definitely before Comic Con '10!
maybe I will see you then.
Anything is possible, if Force wills it
It looked great at the troop today! You're gonna have to help me with mine down the road.
PICS PICS PICS, gotta see some pics
I'm downloading the few pics I took this weekend right now.
The coolest thing was that Tom Hodges was there this weekend and he absolutely LOVED the suit! He sent his assistant running to chase Kristi down and bring her back to his table. He signed the inside of her helmet and got a few pictures with her, which he said he was going to try to get up on StarWars.com. Great stuff! He complimented me on my work, complimented her on it, and even put forth his proclamation that it should be approved in the 501st (We're both already in the 501st, so she doesn't really need it approved)
Cadet, where you been? Any work on your skeleton armor lately? I'm still subscribed to that thread, you and your bro here gotta show me more, I LOVE THAT ARMOR.
I got some pics of her with our local ESB fett here in Carida. Just a couple of shots in various places around the convention.
LOL SPACEBALLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH $Hi7 there goes the planet.

Very nicely done. The only critique I could give is a problem I see on virtually every costume, Boba, Jango, or custom.... I would try to tighten up the bottom of your girl's armor vest and make it more form fitting. Doing so will make her look more tall and lean and will show off her feminine form better, plus is just looks sharper! Congrats on having a girl who will troop with you.
It means a lot to me to have a positive review by you, Art.
And on the armor vest- yeah I knew it wasn't very tight. There just wasn't time before WizardWorld to get it tweaked. I wanted my sleep once the costume was complete, lol. I knew it was a little loose. I also need to add the left upper arm pocket. Those mods will be done before the next time she wears it
i love it! Perfect amount of weathering and the plates really seems to be scaled right. great job
Wolf it looks good man... I wouldn't change a thing except for fit.
Here's a quick pic of Kristi with Tom Hodges himself at WizardWorld Philly
