    Feb 19, 2010, 3:10 AM - Woodmans Tusken Project **FINISHED** #1

    I've been working on this as a "steam release" when I need to step away from my fett. here are some pics.
    I have a swedish mauser ammo belt for the waist belt and 2, 5 pocket enfield bandoliers. I bought a gaffi end cast from Kingjawa and turned the walnut shaft I'm trying to come up with the aluminum for the other end. I need to put several more coats of stain and the sealer on the handle. I sewd the boot forms using tape templates to get the pattern shapes.Then I took the slip cover and glued it to a pair of slip-on deck shoes . I took the gloves and tailored them to fit my hand cause most of these cheap work gloves are very poorly fitting then attatched some extensions for the wraps. I also sewd the 3 ridges down the back of the hand on the glove to match the Sideshow tusken cause I really liked the look.The head is a rubber underskull from Kingjawa and the metal is from him too.
    I used real lambskin for the mouth and an old belt for the leather around it. I need to put some screen behind the eyes and mouth. I wanted the respirator to be as close as I could get it to the archive photos I have so I poured some resin in a plastic jar to get a piece to turn to the shape I wanted. The outer robe is made from upholestry fabric I still need to get the heavy linen for the inner robe and a piece for my neck and the sash. tell me what you think.


    Well I had alot of other jobs going on for members but I did manage to finish my Tusken. I went to ALL-CON in Dallas last weekend and to it and my Fett. I had these pics done by some cool guys there called Neither Nior, I think they took some great pics for me.

    Sorry the pics arent very big they're 5x7 printed in the middle of a full sheet. I will try to remedy this.

    Thanks for the comments. I finally found the fabric for the inner robes but it was burgandy. I was the perfect weave and weight so I bought a samll piece just to see what bleach would do to it and it turned the burgandy fabric completely tan.
    took the color right out so tomorrow I will be buying enough for the robes and soaking it in a highly concentrated bleach solution for a few days so I will have them done soon. now to find aluminum for the gaffi end!
