Hi all... finally decided to become a member after working on my stuff for a while and using as much information as possible from the site. Figured it's about time to post some pictures of the progress and maybe get some constructive criticism and whatnot.
Me in costume. Currently I'm working on the helmet, so it looks way different now, more pictures to come when finished.
knee armor, been painted again since picture, wear came out really brown so I repainted as light yellow
Here you can see the light yellow....
and Wookie Braids.
There we are so far, I think I have a pretty good start so far, still need to fabricate the jetpack and gauntlets. I would also like to take this time to thank Rafalfett and wizardofflight, your templates have been awesome and saved a lot of time!

So, it's been an arduous process to get to this point, but working when life has permitted, I've at least been able to get to this point:
had the helmet all torn apart and finally got it back together. Still more painting to do, but it's coming along!
Another helmet pic, added the kill stripes and a little damage. Also, made a longer RF stalk out of sintra, little worried about it wobbling around too much, but I think it will work until I can get a better one.
Been a while since I was on here, been quite busy with life in general. Here's a couple pics of my Jetpack construction so far, I like how it's coming together but there's still a bunch of work to be done on it!
Just finished up dyeing my girth belt! I used the method as outlined here.
I had to shrink the belt down first, put it in simmering water for around 45 mins and let it cool for about 15 in the water. I then wrung it out using a little bit of warm water here and there so I wouldn't burn my hands. I then rack dried it in my dryer on the lowest setting for about an hour. This easily took off 2-3 inches and made it the perfect size for me.
After dyeing, I blotted it out and let it dry, flipping it over and blotting more as needed.
Ta da! All finished up! I think it came out pretty good.
