this is Guido from Italy.
I officially started after some time evaluating this “dream” to build a very good/almost same Bossk costume and I know this gonna be a tough challenge for Bossk is not easy, quite complex actually.
I have purchased from an artist based in Spain, Mask/Arms and Feet (not yet received tho but the picture is for reference and is exactly what I am going to get) and right now I will move on with the rest, step by step.
Even if I don’t not really mind how long will it take, I would like to be ready by the end of the Year, but anyway….now I start to bother you guys with all my questions:
Leg Holster,Belt and Ejection Harness:
I found online several pictures and I have identified the material, should be Poly Propylene Webbing if I am not mistaken, light grey for the Harness, military army green not to dark for the Holster and light brown/beige for the Belt.
Belt Buckle I found on the ebay can be purchased
At home with the help of my wife I think we can put everything together with the sewing machine.
Ejection Harness: according to the picture, is everything correct?
Leg Flares: is there’s something commercial can be used? Which kind of material you recommend? Dimension?
Thanks for now guys, this is my first step in the large world, I wanna walk slow and safe!!
Of course any help/suggestion is deeply appreciated
There are a bunch of guides to making leg flares on the rebel legion forums. You can simply google it and find it pretty fast.
Different material is used for the straps that connect to the lower compression cabling system. If you are looking to get 501st approval I highly recommend reading information posted on thebhg.net and the WIP CRL there.
Latex parts finally arrived yesterday, they fit perfectly!
Next move is to choose the right material/colour for the suit, already ordered some small samples and as soos as I can have in my hands, I will start to proceed with the suit.
yes I was concerned about this issue, and I am thinking to ask my local cobbler to stick on the soles something like rubber for shoes or any similar material suitable to walk. Possibly shaped according to these feet.
But now I am focused on the suit, I have ordered the material in the right Yellow colour and as soon as get I will start to sew (with the help of my mum)!
I hope to have the suit almost ready before end of nov.
