    Nice work!...in case it helps...there is brilliant all round shots of the suit in 'THE FIRST MEN IN THE MOON' , the Ray Harryhausen one. All the UN astronauts at the start have those high altitude suits as spacesuits, Bo Shecks suit as well, probably the exact same suit from the prop company!

    Re: My Bossk making of (completely self-made)

    Any more progress on the Bossk? Its interesting because while human and most other bounty hunters and troopers are usually slim, but Bossk are sometimes not skinny creatures at all, more thick and massive size. I'm considering characters that are appropriate to my dimensions. The Bossk first really got my attention in the animated Clone Wars series, and I think there's a 'live' one in ANH- I'm reviewing that now.

    I can say mask is perfect, and the arms and feet look great as well, but those would be too slim for me. So, help me out here, it's my first look into making things, esp. molding and the like. I'm an electronics engr. & technician by trade.. a different world from model/costume making.

    I'm still looking around here for a tutorial on making body parts and casting. It'll be a good education.

    Re: My Bossk making of (completely self-made)

    I found some 'Bossk' arms and feet on epay, just looked at them.
    Are those type acceptable to costuming standards? I've read a lot here and on 501st about standards. I don't mind doing a lot of work but would hate to plunk down $ for something and miss the mark (e.g. the claws are thinner on those but I could work on that). I'm also interested in accuracy and would want to portray the character correctly as me resources allow.

    One thing that worries me about about latex feet is (besides sweatiness ;-) the durability. Walking on pavenent, or even in a convention hall has got to abrade them. What can be done with costume feet to make them more durable? For some costumes a pair of shoes or boots can be covered with prop material but it won't work well for the Trandoshan because they have big feet to begin with and then the claws.

    I'm also trying to understand the arms. His arms are long in the films but shorter in the animated series. -almost to the knees in the film. question is - are the arms and hands of BH-4517's costume hollow to the ends of the fingers so that the fingers can be used?

    Sorry for all the questions, the Trandoshan's an interesting creature and would be a good character for me. I like the long arms because that's what the films show, and BH-4517's photobucket images show them, its very realistic. To me it looks like the arms can be put on part way to give a long (correct?) appearance, or pulled up further to make good use of the hands for gripping the rifle, etc.

    Re: My Bossk making of (completely self-made)

    Ok I am going to reverse myself almost 180 degrees after doing a lot of research and trying a few things. Bossk is a very detailed costume requiring many special parts and expertise to be screen accurate and not for me as a first time attempt, and the suit is also a big part of it looking right. Looks like others have found the complexity of this to be true also, that a more standard costume like a pilot or tech is better for new or wannabe troopers who don't have experience making things with the required materials and do not have experience with liquids and paints, airbrush, etc. I did make a big mess and have a good time though, I guess that counts for a learning experience. Back to my electronics for now while I consider another costume type.

    Wow that looks fantastic. I love the sculpt. I like the paint too. If you add some shadows and ighlights lightly with an airbrush then splatter the with thing with a chip brush you will get a much deeper looking translucent effect on the skin. But even if you dont stellar work my friend, absolutely fantastic.

    Re: My Bossk making of (completely self-made)

    Took me some time but Im back again. I finished my Bossk (except the shoulders and the tube is to long).
    Here are some pictures from my first convention




    I couldnt offer the Bossk mask/arms and feet at the moment, because I dont have time for that. Im building a new vacuum table and my APH-6B helmet is watiting for the mold 
    I think, in octobre I could offer the first Bossk parts and possibly ABS – 4-Lom parts
    To all who sent me a PM for the parts, Im sorry I didn`t answer !

    Great photos. It's nice to see someone put thought into the setting and mood instead of just taking a blurry picture in their mom's driveway.
