    My First Trooping....

    On a lighter note I did win $150 bucks for it today during a costume contest at work. That was 1st place. That lets me know that I really have a piece of work here.

    My First Trooping....

    Thank you for the compliments. Right now I'm dressing my brother in law in it so that it can compete in a $10000 costume competition at the Hard Rock Hotel. You have to be 21 to enter and I'm only 20. DAH! However, since I did all of the work I'm gettin the prize money.

    My First Trooping....

    Well, here it is, my 99.999% complete ROTJ:SE Fett was on display on me for the first time at a Halloween party at my church. It was a huge success. The best part was the reaction of all of the little kids. Parents were coming up to me asking me to take pictures and people were taking pics...

    Melted Fett

    Aayup I know I gotta dirty up the suit. It is still too clean. As for the stalk it is permanently JB welded in place with the earcap on. My helmet is one of the things I plan to "upgrade" later anyway. It is a shame really because I did such a damn good job painting it. If only you could...

    Melted Fett

    The RF is hollow and the stalk is made of resin. Not screen accurate. I'm gonna do some reinforcing later with some epoxy putty. That stuff will hold it up straight.
