Interest Thread: MS McQuarrie Fett Helmet

The 48th Ronin

Hey guys!

Ya know, I've been aware of TDH's existence, but I never really stuck my head in here much, until a few days ago - as I told John, as far as the whole costuming thing goes, I've kinda' moved on... you know - got interested in other things and went in a different direction...

Anyway, here I am again - the timing couldn't have been more fortuitous... and bizarre. I actually followed a link from another forum to the thread on Marrow Sun's new Fett helmet. I poked around a little and saw this thread, and of course seeing McQuarrie's name really piqued my curiosity (since his work is what inspired me to do my costume, obviously). I've always thought it would be cool to do a helmet exactly like the pre-production painting, so this is very exciting.

So has Marrow Sun ever tried his hand at a Stormtrooper helmet? I've always wanted a McQuarrie pre-production Stormtrooper too! :lol:

Even cooler... a white helmet with a red inverted triangle just above the eye slit, resting nicely on your head, my head, GEO's head, anyone else who wants to be a part of this' movement's ...head(s).

Sorry John ;) Actually, speaking about the eye slit, I've been meaning to inquire about that first pic of MS's helmet... I know those are in-progress shots, but that isn't how the visor is going to be, is it - just a slit and not a T visor?

If you look close, the bottom portion of the T-Visor is being held in place.
The final product will have a T-Visor area.

Thats just a spacer while I work on the helmet. When I cast up the rough helmet to start really tweaking I'll get cut out and replaced. I'm working on it today so there should be some progress picks by the weekend. Heres an old pic I had sent to John as an example. I still need to narrow up the visor area.

Oh, I thought maybe someone else had started on one... I remember Scott telling me he was gonna be doing one, and let's just say that was quite some time ago. The man's too busy for his own good :lol:

You see....McQuarrie's ideas are always changed. As I said before, Lucas is a changer, that is why they call him "whiskers"...anyway, this helmet is much more evil looking. GL Probably toned it down so that when Vader had his inevitable "redemption" back to Anakin, you could pity him...but I still have a hard time believing that this whole plotline was in his head when he made SW4-ANH.

Looks Dang Scary!
