    Definitely movable. I wouldn't want to "short change" LFL's first female helmet.
    I finished the rangefinder ear cap last night and am moving on to the actual rangefinder this weekend.

    Jeff had shared with me that you were going to be working on the soft parts for this costume, and I'm glad to hear it!

    I decided to extend the bottom of the helmet in the back to make it more accurate. I also permanently attached the rangefinder ear and began filling in around it. I'll try to get some progress pics up today after work.
    Please let me know if anyone sees anything that needs adjusting.
    Thanks. - Cruzer

    Re: A little side project for a friend...

    Ok, here is where the helmet is as of right now. I don't plan on making any major changes unless someone has a suggestion. I did narrow the visor area along the top line by 1/8", as well as increase the width of the widow's peak to bring it lower. However, I'm not happy with the visor area, so please let me know if anyone sees anything I should change.

    Thanks,
    Cruzer

    Re: A little side project for a friend...

    Sorry for the lack of updates, guys. Had to step away from this project to finish "way overdue" Jango orders. The movable rangefinder stalk is completed. Now I have moved on to the rangefinder and hope to have it finished soon. I'll try to post pics tonight of the stalk and rangefinder progress.

    My intentions are to cast the rangefinder stalks separately in aluminum cold cast with metal armatures to alleviate breaking, and then cast the rangefinder in white resin with the stalks embedded in them for permanent attachment. Once i have the rangefinder completed, I'll probably have to do a small preorder run at a discounted price to drum up funds for the four separate molds that will need to be made to put this helmet into production. I'll try to get some pics of the rangefinder and stalk up tonight.

    Take it easy,
    Cruzer

    Re: A little side project for a friend...

    Sorry guys i failed to make the time to take pics. Over the past few days I've now logged about 5 hours on just the rangefinder alone because this thing has so many angles and sides. To make it I'm using a combination of styrene sheets in various thickness' of 1/8", 1/16", and 1/32"...and filling in with bondo when possible. It's 85% complete, and today after work I just need to finish up the curved detailing by the RF stalk, to be done. I promise to have pics up tonight.

    Ok, the rangefinder is done. I can't believe I spent nearly 9 hours on such a small piece of this helmet!

    The RF stalk height looks good. Looks about the same as a Boba or Jango stalk.
    Nice detail in the RF

    Re: A little side project for a friend...

    Thanks guys, I'm glad you like it.

    What SEEKER is hinting at is that he and I have already begun collaborating on bringing you guys all of the parts necessary to make Bo-Katan's entire suit. He is diligently beginning work on all of the leather items and soft parts. Likewise, I have already begun construction of the body armor, which I hope to have the majority of the upper body armor completed and ready to show off after this weekend!

    I'm gonna be so broke! I already lightened my hair so that when I have it for CVI, I can take off my helmet and have the red hair like hers. You guys are awesome!! I can't wait!!
