  1. Last week is great! I’d be interested in a set of these greeblies as well!
  2. Do you offer the greebies for sale?
  3. Its insane hot hot this is. I haven't done a con yet that's in 3 weeks so I;ll report back then. Its skin tight so its a little claustrophobic being in it.Your whole body is encased and once the head goes on you immediately feel the heat rise and the whole head is fitted tight to your head. I have to take deep breaths and focus on calming myself to get into it.
  4. I'm in Animation, while I mocked up the colour scheme in Photoshop of how to paint it, it was two guys that I hired to cast the suit and paint it based off my art.
  5. The head is quite heavy, the weight of the dreads on the back on the head is very noticeable. Plus the head is basically skin tight to you head. So no fans the only air you get is from the eye holes and 2 little holes inside the mouth. Compared to the TK, I think the TK is more comfortable. This is HOT! beyond anything you can imagine you're encased in latex head to toe which is tight and restricts movement. I can't sit nor can I get me arms above my shoulders. I can't dress in this by myself I need to people to assist. Once the torso goes on which is tight squeeze I'm useless handlers have to dress the rest of me.
  6. Here is some of the build photos... Getting ready for the head. Getting ready requires help, I need 2 people to dress me. I'm also 6'9" with the head on, I'm normally 6'2". First test fitting of the latex body suit. Painting begins... I have a very wide upper back and shoulders and the body suit had to be modified and expanded to fit. In all her glory...
  7. In addition to my Hero Stormtrooper, Sandtrooper, Snowtrooper and Tusken Raider I have a Planet of the Apes Gorilla Solider and now I'm proud to share my Veteran Huntress Predator costume to add to the mix. This was a commission build from a company called Wreav, they are a team of 3 individuals that collaborate to create beautiful costumes. I came up with a concept for how she should be painted and here she is:
  8. I never seem to get to wear my Hero TK as often as I'd like as having multiple costumes makes that challenging. But here it is at Toronto Comic Con. I also had a chance to wear my new non-Star Wars costume, a Planet of the Apes Gorilla Solider. I had to mash up my Gorilla with my TK...
  9. Besides Star Wars I'm a fan of other sci-fi genres. Before Star Wars was Planet of the Apes and I was enthralled as a child with the apes. I'm so very happy to have fulfilled my childhood dream with my very own Gorilla Solider costume. This costume was a commission from a company called Apemania I'll let the photos speak for themselves. Go Ape! Finally had to mashup my TK and GS...
  10. Well congratulations girl! Its been a long battle for sure! From maker issues to errors trying to fit this to you. But its all done now and you can get out and enjoy it finally! The big question is what are you building next? Christina
  11. So glad you replaced the thighs this looks WAY better now. In the end I know you are happier with them now!
  12. The blue strips on the helmet are too far off they are suppose to be only a pencil width thickness from the helmet. Right side kidney plate is overlapping the ab plate they should be flush against each other. Right thigh ammo knee pack should be up and over the edge not hanging down like it is. Cover strips trim the exposed edges overhanging the edges for comfort.
  13. And the Snowtrooper is approved! Here it is with my other 4 costumes I've made this past year...there is two more non-Star Wars costumes underway currently to add to this in a few months.
  14. Your shoulders look way better! The back I'd leave it unless it interferes with moving about.
  15. Well the pieces were dry enough today to try on for submission photos so here you go... Front Back Right Side Left Side Helmet Off Action Shots
  16. Your paint tips are great! <br><br> Sorry I called out the thigh issue but you knew it needed to be fixed. You didn't go this far with all those mods to settle.<br><br> Christina
  17. Well everything is weathered now the drying game starts, takes 1-2 weeks with oil paint weathering to dry. A pain but so worth it in the end. The chest mid weathering... The finished chest... The back pack before... The pack after... The helmet before... The helmet after... The holster before and after... The shoulder before and after... Everything done and laid out to dry, the pants and duster are in the garage hanging to dry from the spray weathering, pics to come of them soon. Submission photos to follow soon...
  18. The height of the thighs in the before pic looked better, too much gap now. I'd think you'd have better mobility with more gap at the knee. <br><br> Did you trim the thighs and shins shorter?
  19. Weathering has begun, here is a few photos. I do my weathering with oil paint, a mix of black and raw umber brown. I did this technique for my Sandtrooper as well. The belt and cod plates weathered. Knee, before and after. Hands before and after. Belt pouches, the bottom one has a tea dyed wash added, the top has weathering added. Forearms, before and after Boots, before and after Both boots weathered, I'm not a fan of how the front straps slip down. Thinking of sewing the underside strap to the front of the boot so they all stay in place and don't slip down and get bunched up.
  20. I did a test fitting of everything assembled, just a few painting details to add on the pack then onto weather the armour and soft parts. if you have any recommendations please let me know, thanks. Front view Back view Right side view Left Side view 3/4 view
  21. Basically I finished of the build over the holiday break... Chest straps added Shoulder straps and pack connectors added Chest with straps Pack sides attaching Bracing added to the pack to add support for the front panel attachment Bracing is PVC 3/4" U-Channel glued to the underside of the sides, a suggestion from Paul of TM
