  1. YAYYAAYAYAY to Phasma TLJ. While I work on that I need a new ANH or ESB TK. My poor old lady is not fit for duty << Where are those repair droids when you need them!? >> I'm half tempted to do a FO TK but I'm sorry, the OT TKs are still my first love and the most comfortable and versatile!
  2. That's pretty sweet. Love the interior padding.
  3. After seeing pretty much every TK in the entire Star Wars universe bite the big one on screen, I felt like I needed to come here and give my long lost brothers and sisters a HUG. Actually I guess I'm the one who is Long Lost! Mama TK says Hi, sends her love, and hopes you all have wonderful holidays, winter break, or whatever you're up to. Also I'll be in NYC for a while between Xmas and NYE if anyone wants to get coffee or otherwise break up the New York Monotony. (That ought to get me some outings, right? "I'll show you!") I'm a California native, what do you want? STAY SA
  4. Hello, Everyone -- I am so sorry for being absent and not answering anyone's questions. This teacher didn't get much of a summer off or any kind of break! I'm going to start transferring and archiving information from our Captain Phasma Costumers facebook group to here for long-term reference, but for the most part that's where most of the build answers including vendors are. I'll work with the team here to get things updated if they haven't already. See, I don't even know! Bad Captain! Anyway, I think my mailbox is useful again, so feel free to PM me, though it's WAY easier to f
  5. Jennifer was one of the first people I met on FISD, and was, and will always be, my "build buddy." Her encouragement and advice were always given with grace, enthusiasm, passion, and humor. I would never have guessed, even having experienced major depression myself, that she was suffering. Jenny, I love you, and may there be endless trooping and a demand for your cheer and kindness in the Empire Beyond. Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk
  6. Apologies for the late replies! I am not a fan of fiberglass so I'm glad I have light ABS plastic armor. The parts I have from Shawn are fine, though. CRL is in progress, mostly done... my bad... need to send in photos. The new LMO, or whatever his role is, is being a total jerk about it. (KIDDING!)
  7. There is nothing wrong with a male Phasma, any moreso than a female playing Vader. Just be true to the character and that's what matters
  8. Welcome! Definitely find your local unit and get to know them. Having hands-on build help is wonderful
  9. Nihao and welcome, Yang! There is a unit of 501st members in China somewhere, I think they might be quietly lurking in Shanghai or thereabouts. Where are you located?
  10. I'm not sure if plastidip will hold the shape for the gaskets once you remove the mold, but its a thought.<br><br> As for the shape, I was going to use any ribbed or corrugated item, make a negative mold of it, and cut to shape (mostly rectangle anyway). But I'm still a ways away from that solution.
  11. Hi, Francisco! Which material, the plastic armor parts or the cape, or the black gaskets in the joints? Armor/Plastic = vacuum formed ABS, some fiberglass, styrene could work. Cape = cotton canvas is preferable. Joints/Gaskets = the original suits from Anovos are true rubber, but others are making them out of Lycra / Spandex (bathing suit) material, or other materials, including latex. I hope that answers your question! Gloves are just plain leather driving gloves I got from a street vendor in NYC for $10. I may switch to neoprene which fits more snugly and will not constrict my fin
  12. Thanks so much for your input, Bobby!!! In the final version I submitted to Eric recently, I definitely did not specify what materials can or can't be used. I just left it at "reflective silver or chrome in color" because if you can achieve that with a spraypaint, why not? Just not the foggy dull gray kind that claims to be chrome, like the Krylon crap I tried. I also removed that specification from the hand armor and fingers because they seem to be duller in most photos. I can't argue what you say about Vaders - I am used to working with ROTJ vaders and an ESB vader and I am always po
  13. Here are my latest thoughts on the cape. PROPOSED CRL Wording - Level 1 The cape is black and crosses the chest diagonally from the top of the right shoulder to the left elbow, wrapping around to connect again at the top of the right shoulder. All seams except the front red seam are two parallel straight-stitches, approximately 3/8”-1/2" apart, including pockets, hem, and the borders of the straps. The front seam across the chest is two parallel straight stitches, approximately ~1” (~2.5cm) apart. A red stripe is painted along the entire front seam on the top/visible side only, within the p
