    Our Royal Guard Costumes are complete!

    I love these costumes, they are gorgeous.

    Without further ado; our complete Royal Guards.

    Enjoy!
    Okay starting with me.





    Bucket angles





    Special shots Burge requested I take.
    I do have hands!

    I am not barefoot!

    And with my under robe exposed I am Bat Guard!





    Now on to my beautiful spouse





    Her bucket





    She too has hands!!!

    And she does not like to walk around shoeless either!!

    But alas her wingspread is not as impressive as mine!



    Proof that we are two crazy chicks with costumes and are not ghetto sharing a single costume!

    And our buckets off pic courtesy of random passerby #1

    No they are not Don Post, they are the SA helmet from Tongodix. Eventually we plan to upgrade to MLCs.

    Re: Our Royal Guard Costumes are complete!

    Thanks guys, they feel really nice on as well, not too hot, beautiful movement when walking. Honestly perfect. I could not be happier with the way they turned out. Even the spot where we had to add a button for the head holes came out nice and perfect.


    Next on our list of Emp guards, Shadow Guards using Gypsyboy buckets. I just really want a SaberPike.....lol. I am half tempted though to grab our MLCs and use our SA buckets for Shadow Guards, GB's bucket may be gorgeous but from what I have seen resin Rg lids weigh a ton.

    Yes, yes, very nice.

    Don't forget, I'm getting closer to casting my IGV2, if you still are interested.

    Great pics! Those outfits look awesome. Just wanted to interject that the resin I use is relatively light (but strong). To give you some idea - I am told that my resin Vader helmet is very noticeably and refreshingly lighter than a f'glass one. Because of the size of these lids they won't be light as a feather, but they won't be near as bad as if they were f'glass. As for strength - I've mentioned this before in other posts on various boards but it is really a good example - I had a resin Vader face get blown off my back porch, and it landed on top of a large rock. I jumped down, expecting to have to pick it up in pieces, only to find it was undamaged. If it had been f'glass I would have been bringing it back in a pile of shattered shards. I know this to be true because I've had that happen.

    Novall actually a bit farther along than that.


    TK is 90% complete and is only giving me troubles on the thighs, curse FX kits not fitting big thighs.

    Revan is troopable, but needs modification to be 501st approvable

    Royal Guards are done

    Mando is done and just waiting on my damn flightsuit

    RC is still in its infancy cause I am taking my sweet arse time on it after I learned my lesson for speed assembly with my TK. Assembled parts are all below the waist. Except buckets.

    Predator is at sourcing parts phase to be honest, I still need to start work on latexing my skin and am still waiting on my hands feet, face, and bio.

    Re: Our Royal Guard Costumes are complete!

    Upgrades I plan to/want to do to these.

    Backpack blower fan set up, harness with two blower fans that run hoses up the back of the helmet as someone else in Titan has done.
    Voice, just because we do not hear them speak does not mean they would not need systems of voice and hearing in their helmets.
    Burgundy Suede Boots from Caboots
    Burgundy Gloves, same color as boots, will be matching the Caboots swatch when I do a glove search or craft
    Red/Burgundy Leather Holster for my blaster (Tandy has a good leather for this)
    Red/Burgundy neckseal (have the cloth)
    Finish my DH-17, eventually upgrade to MR DH-17s


    But for now it is acceptable and that is a good list of to dos. All in all I am very pleased with them at the moment. Might consider a black visor as the red you can either see through up close, or if I add tint, you can't see out of.
