Crispy Boba Build from "The Tragedy" WiP
« on: Sep 07, 2021, 04:21 PM »
This whole thing started out as just an awesome Halloween costume. But then I found the Mercs, and it has begun to take on a life of it's own. Throwing some pictures up to show some of what I've got going so far. Hand sewed the flak vest. Sourced the top, pants and screen accurate boots. Modified two sets of leather gloves. Have some materials printed. Mostly plate armor. Attempting bucket print next. Still trying to figure out how to post pics and stuff. Stay tuned. 

Bucket featured in full costume shot is a STAND IN ONLY...not for use with finished costume. Belt is also STAND IN ONLY...not for use with finished costume

Betting I'll need different gloves. Flak vest will be remade from scratch to display clean stitch lines; may need a complete redesign. No filler or sanding done to armor parts yet. Possibly dyeing fabrics (not flak vest) this weekend.

good call on the gloves, the outers should also be leather

as for the vest, I see yours has lots of crossing stitching, the screen used version only has diagonals across the ribs. Should be the same as Cobb Vanth. The areas under the plates likely dont have any stitching. Are you sewing your own vests? if so - MAD props!

I'm sewing my own vests, but the stitching you mention is the quilted stitching of the fabric used. So yeah, back to scratch on that.

Hey Moose, Nice start so far, here is a link that can help you find some of the parts you are looking for

it also has great screen caps that you can look at, as of now there is no CRL for post sarlac so you will be building off references, try and stick to the screen caps as there is nothing more accurate.

I see some sanding in your future!

Both the inner and outer glove with need to be leather, or leather like material. 

Can I see the sides of your knee armor?  I'm concerned your print has a little different shape than the references.

Filling and sanding, too right! I got the note about the gloves and have leather sets on order. As for the knee armor, I can post a better shot of the ones I have, but I am in the process of alterations and fixes to my file to more accurately reflect screen shots. (My original knees have blasters only on one side, and the positions are flopped. Working on fixing that.) Again, all this work I already had done for Halloween before finding you lot. I expect to have to do a complete build from scratch on nearly everything with few exceptions.
