  1. Painted and bag sewn Fleece lined and cotton glow in the dark exterior
  2. Acquired this recently. Painted it up. Will have troop pictures with it next Saturday. Ya... I'm short -.-
  3. You're welcome! Here is an updated picture as I pack for the Hollywood Christmas Parade tomorrow. Forgot to mention. Make sure you have a cushion under the chest plate. I made the mistake the first time and it rubbed and scratched all the color off -.- Not fun when you're going to a troop and take out the armor with missing abs button color.
  4. I got the same box. Only reason I got this one is because of the two bars running across the box. I have short arms that can't lift these boxes without them. Here is what I did with mine.

  5. Wow I totally forgot about this thread. I should finish it off... After my last post, I took off like a headless chicken and hardly took pictures of the build. I got approved on 10/30 and got my TK ID on 11/1. Here's what I have and pictures from my first troop this past Monday for the Battlefield Launch Clean Walmart and Joann out of this type of fabric. Oops sorry Made a set for another legion member to line his bin and protect his armor. Painting suck! Third attempt a charm and had some great tips from a pro painter from SCG No spray can here... Paint mixing and compressor spray. I cheat... Car polisher to polish armor Haha! Shiny Sewed my own canvas belt (No prior experience... just bought a sewing machine) Tiered Padded Bin (Bottom layer) Top layer fully assembled torso piece just need to slip in Bags! I learned so much during this build... Power tools, sanding, painting and now sewing. Endless repair and modding... Knee plate keep grid locking me in. *hobble like C3PO* Now I need to find out how to secure thigh so they don't slip in the back Work asked me to go in with the armor. Battlefront Launch 1st troop... Shortie on the right (1st picture) Middle (2nd center with a tilted head)
  6. Hmm.. some tennis shoe tend to be narrower than others. I would say they fit more like the Sketchers. Sketchers have rounded front and they are wider than others like Nike or Adidas. For me it is true to size. I know he suggest for some people to order 1 size up. I would suggest probably email him. He is very helpful Sent from my GT-I9300I using Tapatalk
  7. I got my boots!! He sent me an email 2 days ago that my boots was sent from somewhere here in the US and today I found a nice big box waiting for me when I got home from work. Thank you for helping me size what I needed. Boots were snug getting on and off other than that, it fit like it was custom made tailor to fit me. Here are pictures to help anyone deciding. I wear Woman size 7.5 Wide or 8 Regular. This pair of boots is 8 Regular. I was afraid it would run narrow and be tight but they are perfect. I had on thick ankle socks too
  8. Been trimming and gluing all weekend. I guess I can say I am almost or at the half way poinnt. Shin, Forearm, Bicep, Hand guard and Shoulder done.
  9. Indeed it is. I was getting worried that I didn't get a response in a couple days since I sent my payment. I just got back from my 3 weeks outing to Cambodia. Enjoy your trip! I am super jealous of the culture there. (Long lunch, naps and more vacation days than the US)
  10. 3 more hours added into my build along with 2 from last night. Arms are almost done. I went the none traditional route for glue. E6000 takes forever to dry and I can't stand the smell. Found out Zap-a-Gap is banned from being sold in California *wave fist* Raided my dad's workshop and found Clear PVC Cement. He was afraid it won't stick and I was the opposite afraid it was going to stick too good and destroy my armor. It works about the same as Zap-a-Gap setting in a few seconds and within minutes its hard as a rock. Left forearm... right side still drying in workshop Left Biceps Trimmed to fit... Feeling a little self conscious right about now. That thing look small. My armor is going to be one heck of a short armor. Gluing commence tomorrow!
  11. Oh so I had it flipped. You mean the forearm right? I'll have to try it one when I get home. The biceps, I noticed the left side when I was trimming couple weeks ago is a lot narrower too. Sent from my GT-I9300I using Tapatalk
  12. Back from my tropical humid vacation in Cambodia! Started to build again today. 2.5 hours went so quickly Teeth are out! Finished the bucket other than to paint. Trimmed arm pieces to fit. Left fit perfect except for when bending. It keeps pushing up against my palm. Right side have the same cut but seem to be a lot larger in circumference. The gap is huge! About 1+ inch between my arm and the armor is this correct? Left side fit perfect just needing a little padding.
