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:

Please note that i forgot to take a bucket off pic in the 12/2019 pictures. i have included the original bucket off pic. You will see the same wall and floors, because the pics were taken in (my) same house. The differences in the kit are the cod, thigh pockets, & belt.
