I read that you were going to be fixing the costume up post-dance? Are you planning to upgrade even more? If so, whats on the horizon?
The main thing I want to do, is redo the flak vest and use the proper armor attachment method. The velcro allows the armor to flap around and it's super easy to slap it off if you're not careful.Your belt looks a little narrow and I'd open open up the barrel of your blaster.
I'm not happy with any of the soft parts that I made, except for the ammo pouches. The girth belt, ammo belt, and flak vest/neck seal will all be redone eventually. The blaster will likely be replaced as well.
I also plan on re-painting the armor and helmet, but that is something I will need to work up to. I need to learn how to use an airbrush and either order or learn how to mix paints.
All that said, the costume was a hit!
Happy to provide!Please make sure you get pictures of the group from the party too.
Here's the whole group:
Top row: Dark Rey, Boba (me), Darth Vader, Lando (I here that he just liked the cape), Emperor Palpatine, Han, Leia, Rey, Padme (decoy), and two people from Pride and Prejudice (I guess).
Middle row: C-3PO, Padme, Padme, Jyn Erso, Luke
Bottom row: Baby Yoda, Kyle Katarn (at your service...), BB-8, R2-D2
Total: 18 Star Wars characters!
Unfortunately, Baby Yoda was turned around for the best photo. Here he his with BB-8:
Both of them won their respective costume contests, under 13 boys/girls.
There was also a group contest, but we lost to the Scooby-Doo Gang. (We would've gotten away with it too, if it weren't for those meddling kids...)
I didn't see this, but I'm glad photos exist:
And a couple of action shots:
Oh, and there was another Mandolorian:
Overall I am very pleased with how the costume worked out. I only had a couple of malfunctions. One of the girth belt buckles tore off, and somebody I danced with slapped off my collar armor. I wish I could do more swing moves, but that's the price I pay for such a cool costume. At least I can waltz!
Thank you all for your help. It is greatly appreciated.
