    Greetings from Sweden!

    Hi I im going to be the first Bo Katan in Scandinavia and maybe Europe aiming for an 501st approval for her costume. Im going to construct a Bo Katan costume and post my WIP here. I have also made various posts about helmets armor etc. here on the forums asking for advices as you maybe have seen.

    I would recommend a Dremel tool with a flex shaft. I'm not sure if they sell dremel tools where you are, but something similar would work.

    Hi and welcome. Being a "local" amd all I'll still keep this in english, just for the audience.
    You might find dremels at Claes Ohlsson, they have plenty of gadgets. Also Biltema and Jula might be good places to look.
    Good luck on your build

    look around for the Palladium "pallabrouse" in Vapor/metal color. It has grey canvas and the sole is in a metaloptik... i think it fits more for Bo-Katan.



    I doubt that with wit the first in europe btw so lets see how fast you are XD

    Re: Greetings from Sweden!

    you mean these? yes i know she have metal on her boots and thought that i could glue on the boot kit and color it metal, but her sole should be black i think it is more easy to color the black canvas in a grey tint and keep the sole black, as you see on this pic of bo katan her sole is black
    I have not yet seen any Bo Katan in the 501st list but i could be wrong

    whoah, with all that blond hair you may suggest a Santine as second costume? (they have the same face anyway. )

    for the boots: Hm i thought tinting white to grey would be easier. Some Rub'n'Buff for the Tip of the sole would might work also.

    For the europe thing: Well, not everyone keeps updates for the 501th for example

    I must say that it's great that you're making something other than the "main characters". We need more diversity in sweden for our sci-fi fairs

    We sure do. When you're done and accepted to join the 501st, what city are you going to troop in, mainly..?

    Re: Greetings from Sweden!

    Was actually in Malmö durinh this fair. But stockholm is the city for me
    Must say though, having been in malmö, stockholm and gothenburg sci-fi fairs, malmö wins by far when it comes to over-all cosplay. Was really sweet to see a deadpool and mad hatter etc.

    Yeah that works. But it will fade or dissappear when you wash it.
