    My Ep2 Clone Pilot

    Ok, well I guess if we're going to start a new forum for other SW costumes, I'll help get things started as well. Here are a few pics of my Ep2 clone pilot. I don't have many due to me only trooping in it twice, with only one being in it's completed state. So, here are a few shots I like. The first pic is at the Clone Wars premier (my sister, littlebekahc , calls it "marshmallow clone"). The second is with some friends from my local FanForce group while at LegoLand Star Wars Days 2008, this past weekend.

    I did incorporate a hidden hinge and pin closure on my forearm armor, and snaps on my shins...hmm, wonder where I got those ideas from?


    Enjoy,
    Cruzer

    It looks like you just came out of the digital set.

    Great job man!

    You have set the bar man.

    That's a gorgeous costume my friend, top notch job as always.
    I'd like to make a clone pilot some time down the road, so don't be surprised when I start PM'ing you for details.

    Seriously! That kinds of brings doubt that it's Cruzer in the photo. There's no way he's as tall or taller than those people.

    J/K looking good man.

    Lewis, you could still be a Jawa dude.

    Actually, it was an orthodontic convention! I got some business cards if you ever need a good dentist. I'm just kidding. What would SW characters be doing at a dental convention, silly me? It was really the Star Wars days at LegoLand this past weekend. Weren't you there on Sunday?

    Don't tell anybody, but I'm actually wearing lifts! So fortunately it puts me at about 5'10" suited up.8) I'm a short clone, but a clone none-the-less.

    Thanks guys for the compliments.

    Seeker, the weathering is actually based on the ref. pic in the Chronicles Prequels book, which I believe is from the digital files.

    Does your Orthodontist also dabble in Hair Replacement, or do you have a seperate guy for that?

    Actually, I think I haven't had an orthodontist since I had my braces back in jr high and high school. I believe that's when a lot of people have them, but then there are some people like my wife who have braces later on as adults. She's doing that invisaline thing, and she really recommends them. As for hair replacement, why would I have a guy for that?

    So did I miss you on Sunday at LegoLand? I was only able to attend on Saturday, but I heard Sunday was fun as well. If I lived closer, I would have surely attended that day as well. It was neat to hear some of the kids know exactly who my character was. I even had some kids ask me if I flew particular ships, I would just say yes to all the ones they'd mention. I guess I now need to brush up on my ship classes!

    Well, I kinda liked "Cruzer", but I'll consider it....ok, that didn't take long...I think I'll stick with "Cruzer"!

    Benkenove, here's a link to more pics of the chestbox for you . I think I estimated about 45-50 hours invested alone in the chestbox build because it's all scratch built from styrene sheet, sprinkler parts, and all working electronics. The bottom dowl is removable. The chestbox itself, contains two alternate blinking LEDs, a steady red LED, and a faux screen that's backlit by a high intensity blue LED, and the speaker for my Hasbro voice changer. The power supply for the LEDs is located in the chestbox, with the LEDs being controlled by the two rocker switches on the chestbox.

    The wiring for the speaker runs through one of the hoses and into my helmet where the Hasbro speaker system's circuit board and power supply is housed. Then, the prerecord voice commands and voice amplifier are controlled by tact switches located in the finger tips of my left glove.

    I'm 5'9" out of costume, I don't do any lifts or anything, but I think I come out to a modest height for Boba.

    Lorenzo don’t let anyone give you any gripe about you’re height, you’re not short dude, just funsize ENnnnn!!!

    Kidding aside you’re clone is looking great; the addition of weathering really sells the definition and depth of all the curved proportions on the armor, really liked the direction you took with it. As for the chestbox I don’t even know where to begin about the ingenuity you put into that, all I know is you’re spending waay too much time in the garage these days sir and its paying out in spades.
