I like them! Good job. Did you come up with the shoe polish idea? Havent heard that before! But im curious how that will turn out!
I actually learned the shoe polish technique from cosplay Chris too. I've used it in the past and can say it does work really well! Your gonna look legit with the blaster!!I actually follow a cosplayer on YouTube called cosplay chris and he uses shoe polish and a rag to weather everything lol
Hes a pretty amazing cosplayer!! I plan to try the shoe polish technique eventually lol im just happy to have them some what presentable.I actually learned the shoe polish technique from cosplay Chris too.

Yeah I've only ever seen him use rattlecans, but he does always get really cool looking results!CosPlay Chris even uses dirt from his driveway on some of his display pieces. His techniques are absolutely legit! ...and the guy doesn't even use an airbrush - or at least in the dozen or so videos I've seen him do, he hasn't used an airbrush.
Thats what im talking about Iron!! Thanks for pointing that out lol...actually my gauntlets has the velcro closing them shut but no internal padding like foam or anything on the inside to hold them in place so they freely rotate. I will buy some foam and take care of that problem right away. This is the comments I need to improve my suit...keep them coming please!!Nicely done Krewkid82 ! I, myself am going for a ROTJ Hero Variant, so I'm afraid I can't be of too much help as most of my research went into ROTJ. But it does look pretty cool. One comment though on your second photo of you holding your EE-3. I noticed your Right Gauntlet (The one with the 4 darts on it) didn't seem to line up correctly with the way you had your wrist. Meaning the darts seemed off to the side. In the other pics it looks correct. So that makes me wonder if you secured your Gauntlet to your sleeve? I plan us using Velcro to accomplish this.
Again, I'm not too much help when it comes to an ESB Boba, but other than that....damn fine work sir! Hats off to ya! And good luck on getting the acceptance into the 501st!
The black piece all I use was some left over white ABS plastic I had lying around that I spray painted.I’d have to look at my pouches again but I do believe Arkady doesn’t have them velcro’d at all. You slip the pouch’s loop right over the ammo belt and just make sure they are on the hips.
I was gonna day if they are Patterson Squeege made. How do you make the black square piece, I had though maybe formed out of plexiglass then attached. If that’s the case, maybe make a new one and reattach it?
Wow.... Thats a lot of parts assembled and an awesome effort that you are near the end of completing. Congrats man!BIG UPDATE!! I finally got every single piece for my E.S.B. suit!! These photos are for the members and upcoming Fetts of the dented helmet to judge me with constructive criticism as I will soon be applying to the ranks of the 501st and I really wanted some feedback before I do. Please let me know what I need to fix, what changes I should make, or if I have done a decent job. I want to thank everyone who has helped me these past 7 months. The journey to becoming a Fett is not a race!! Everyone listed in my W.I.P. is amazing and I couldnt have done it without you! Everyone who stopped by or gave this thread a follow keep pushing on as the research and knowledge from others on the forum are priceless. For everyone who PMed me about questions or anything you wanted to talk about thanks for your kind words. 75% of the suit was forum built I just want to let everyone know that I am no hero and Im no artist when it comes to this suit. Most of the work that was done was done by some of the talented group of individuals here on the forums and they deserve all the recognition!
Without further ado.......

Thanks for your comments! For the darts I've seen both and I just left it up to AFFO$ as he was the one who assembled and paintEd my gauntlets. There is a first pass of weathering is on the suit. It's hard to tell in that light but in person you can see a difference. I made a few post on the 501st reddit page and that's typically the response I've been getting from others is that it needs a little more weathering.Awesome work man, certainly been following your thread for my ESB inspired build. Looks fantastic! You must be so happy!
My only observation (personal preference mostly) is the weathering doesn’t appear to come over much on the photos. Maybe it is in person? I do prefer him looking more filthy
On the darts... are they supposed to be parallel with the gauntlet base or angled up. I’ve noticed both on builds. Just wondering the official before I hack into mine.
