  1. Thanks! I'll check that out for sure
  2. I worked on making a hex pattern to cut with my laser cutter tonight because I really don't like the quality of the frown on my helm. I considered drilling the holes, but it just overall doesn't meet my standards and I just think I want to redo the whole thing. Cutting the pattern into worbla was the only thing I could think of that I could easily do that will look nice. Luckily my tests worked out and it looks real clean. I'm still not brave enough to cut out the frown just yet to replace it, but I'll get the entire replacement done soon, see how it looks, then hopefully can make the right decision.
  3. Thanks! Thanks for the encouragement I'm still fiddling with the helmet now. I'm considering trying to find a way to redo the frown because I don't like the way it looks, it's not as clean of a cast as I would have preferred. Are you keeping the frown your helm came with, or redoing it somehow? I'm currently testing perhaps replacing it by cutting the hex grid out of black worbla with my laser cutter and seeing how that looks.
  4. Hello! My name is Laura, and myself and my daughters have a cosplay group I like to call Just Believe Cosplay (hence the forums handle). I'm here because I've been wanting to join the 501st for awhile, specifically as Captain Phasma. I’ve actually had a kit for almost a year now, but have been too afraid to dive into it. I'm in Alaska and live three hours from the nearest seasoned garrison members. I’ve never seen how a kit is constructed firsthand, and since I am a very hands-on learner, trying to figure it out from just photos on the internet has been terribly intimidating. BUT - I’m tired of allowing myself to be held back by this fear. It’s actually a step away from that just to post here, because I’ve been planning to for a year and never had the guts to. I really hope I can get Phasma going and maybe possibly finished in time for May the 4th. I would appreciate any tips or hints anyone could give for this build! Here’s everything I have at the moment- Armor from KB Props Helmet from Jim Tripon Hand armor from Shawn Thorsson Gaskets and soft parts from Geeky Pink's Phantastic Gaskets Boots and gloves purchased on Amazon

    Thank you for all of the welcomes and the suggestions!
  6. Hi everyone- My name is Laura and I am excited to be here. I very much am interested in learning about armor for joining our local group. I have experience in crafting cosplay but am hoping I might be able to find help with locating someone who can get me set up with Captain Phasma armor. Hers is quite a challenge, I know, and I've already promised my hubby I wouldn't do a big project this year, so what Im really hoping for is finding someone reliable who is willing to help me get the armor done by commission. Any leads or tips are highly appreciated!
