    Boots - Return of the Jedi

  2. What's really great about your thorough investment in tools and consumables is that you'll use all of that on your next costumes and beyond (and there are always more costumes.) In fact, looking at my workbench most of the original stuff I bought for my TK is still there being used on the reg. -Eric
  3. They’re delicious. A real delicacy. -Eric
  4. Darman makes a mighty fine holster too. I buy my TK belts from Rob Kittle (up to maybe 6 by now): https://www.imperialissue.com -Eric
  5. Call me the Vader martyr. "Oh. Ok.... I'll wear it... if I must." -Eric
  6. The more TKs in MA the better I say. We can't always import them from Rhode Island (@magni) -Eric
  7. Many thanks to @TK-32700 for finding this for me. With Rebels TKs with pauldrons and of course the FOTK ranks it isn't true anymore... but boy does this make me giggle. -Eric
  8. Heyo... does anyone have a copy of this ridiculous mage? It's gone from photosuckit. It's been a long time but I would like to wield it again. Please PM me if you have it squirreled away somewhere. Thanks, -Eric
  9. It is a little goofy but it is consistent with the weathering wording in the requirements for the TKC and INC. -Eric
  10. If FISD doesn't want to Mike to make any changes to the costume.... here is a link to dropbox with the modified photos for photoshopping. The photos plus a zip have been uploaded. -Eric
  11. Right. Duh me. I'll go make myself another cup of coffee ASAP. When the CRL is complete and green she'll need to fill out the application for membership so she's in the database. Then the LMOses will work with the GMLses to get her approved. The trimming of cover strips is totally up to FISD. Another note: The CRL text in the first post probably needs mention of the squared of thigh pack if FISD wants to make that a L1 requirement. -Eric
  12. Thanks Mike. The photos look good enough to me even if some bits are out focus here and there. The cover strip on the one thigh goes over the ridge. I'm ok with it but I'll leave that, and a no/no go on rest of the photos, up to Sarah and team. Below is a wee test. I was a little worried that they'd be too dark but after a little bit of fiddling they're easy enough to brighten up. Someone with better photoshop skills will be able to deal with the red color bleed through hue onto the white parts. I suggest this costume be called The Force Unleashed Stormtrooper in the CRL. Once FISD is happy and the CRL is green we'll tell your (our) GML to approve you. -Eric
  13. Mike, I suggest posting the CRL photos here for LMO and detachment review. It’d be a lot easier than email for both parties to see them at once. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Thanks Mike. That's really helpful. I'm sort of a dummy when it comes to video games. It looks like you're right on track weathering wise. Please make sure your photos are as high resolution as possible for each view of the parts. -Eric
  15. The question on my mind is how heavily we should weight the models vs game play. It would be my preference to use as much game play as possible. I downloaded this youtube video and tool some screen shots in final cut. Hopefully I got the right video game Ear paint evident. Flat thermal det panel for upper level? Also evidence of slight weathering and scuff marks. More ear paint. Square thigh pack. Scuffing/weathering. I'm open to this costume being heavily weathered but I'm not sure it looks as grimy in the game. Does anyone have a clue about the provenance of the model views? I really don't know how that stuff works. -Eric
  16. Oh? That's the largest it could print? I'll keep it. It's still really cool. -Eric
  17. I haven't received the poster yet sadly. -Eric
  18. I like it. But the table could be bigger on a XL. The det names are also hard to read. It’s still rad. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Spreadshirt.com did our detachment shirts for a good long while. They did all the shipping and stuff you just upload the design. I'm not sure why we stopped but I still wear those shirts 5 years later and they're still holding up. -Eric
  20. So... what is this FizzDee thing? How does it work exactly? It's good to be back, yo. I just saw a ghost! He just likes me because I bought him a beer. -Eric
  21. I wouldn’t be surprised if some folks aren’t getting email. We did change the to way mail is sent. We’ll take a peek soon. Anyone else seeing problems with email notifications? -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Is all still happy? I did some stuff to help the load on the server on the 21st... it doesn't seem to have any untoward effects from a user's standpoint. I hope. Thanks, -Eric
  23. Interesting. That’s exactly the sort of stuff I’m curious about. Lemme know if it happens regularly. Thanks. -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
