WIP Weathering ESB Fett jumpsuit
« on: Dec 05, 2020, 10:58 AM »
Good morning. Iím currently a 501st member in Midsouth Garrison in TN. Iíve started a ESB Fett build and wanted to see whatís worked well for you veterans on weathering the jumpsuit and boots or maybe links if this question has been asked. I ordered the soft goods from Kripton top and the suit was custom made, so donít want to mess it up.  Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Big thing with ESB is that there is a variety of weathering across the entiery of the -censored-.

Heaviest at the ankles, thigh pouches, and belt side pouches.

Get a spray bottle with some water and lightly spritz where you're going to apply weathering. Then, with an airbrush, mist on black acrylic paint, thinned with water to the flightsuit.

Great pics. Did you do the same on the boots? also, curious if you used screws or glue to attach the boot spikes. Thanks again.

At first I just used the provided screws for my toe spikes, but after a quick walk around the house, I realized that wasn't going to cut it.

So, in addition to the screws, my toe spikes are held in place with a thin piece of velcro attached to the flat front section of the boot.
