I trooped on 5/4/18 with the cod and jetpack (without the harness) and it was a hit!

its been a while since I trooped, but I have been busy. I decided I wanted a fusion cutter and found this reference from Solo:

so I made a simpler version:





I used magnets to “lock” the blade in the open and shut positions

thanks!
 I made a new belt with a pilot style ejection harness for my modern kit.




so I am convinced that Poe Dameron didn't know to step INTO his harness and now they have filmed 2 movies where everyone in the Resistance wears their harness like a doofus but its too late to fix it.

I sewed pouch style pockets on my thighs on 12/14/18

here is a pic of my vanilla approved kit and helmet

I wanted to make a new visor since I designed my helmet to be modular.
pattern cut

first layer fitted

second layer formed

ear caps and brow shield shaped

ready for glue

glued

sanded

I had an idea for a bird of prey on the brow shield, I figured there are birds (and other winged creatures in the SW universe so its a safe idea)

 I would paint the wings on the brow shield the same color as the T visor

I like wing 2

I figured I would add more weathering to the base bucket

then I made some respirators incase I feel like detaching the life support box and want to rock the jet pack

the blue went on like a dream

but the red reacted with a vengance

I have taken down the gloss, and removed all the reactions. hopefully ready for another coat tomorrow

this is one mock up of how it might have come out

I sort of wish I had done one where the silver was the wear color, because that might have looked ok but I went ahead and painted it red again .

(if I miss the old way, I can always wet sand it back down.)

also I found a reference for a life support box with switches worn on the back

(i'm not too worried about making adjustments to the box while i'm wearing it)
also I planned on wearing the box on the back so that a chair harness wouldn't interfere with it.

new month new progress, i decided i wanted to have a few more grenades so i tried my hand at molding and casting.

the first attempt went as many first attempts go, very lopsided mold



then i needed a way to carry all of these



if i would have thought to use black sentra, i would be finished by now.

 Summer Reading Kick off, lafayette LA 6.1.19




since my approval photos were taken i have made a number of improvements. i have decided to continue on this path and upgrade my gauntlets. here are the approved gaunts:


i will be taking apart a set of leather gauntlets and redying them black and add splinted sentra plates:

the current plan is
1 un-stitch all leather pannels and remove the finish
2 remove elbow section and top of hand protection completely
3 bevel all edges
4 dye black, burnish edges, finish with "snow proof"
5 shape sentra plates, paint , mount on gauntlets, and weather

i will add pictures as they happen.
update 6/17/19



and now it will rain for 5 days straight, so i may be able to paint the plates friday... also i am making new knees.

the gauntlets are on hold as i feel like the armor plates look better white and i can use them for an unapprovable jedi general costume.
 however i was able to troop in my new knees that are based on my LC knees with a trama plate on the outer side of the knee:
