Oh.. I dont glue the screws to the backside.. that requires relying upon an adhesive for all your strength... something I am loathe to do. No I countersink the screws through the front of the plates then bondo over them and smooth it out.. actually I just finished her plates this morning pre-bondo, i will post some pics when I head back to work on them tonight.

ok so we cheated a bit and bought j2p helmets and blasters from amazon to get our kits completed for PAX!

3d printed rocket (totally ran out of time so very crappily attached... new gaunts are on the list.


Devu and Echo9... mando-sisters!


me!


photo-op with one of the lead illustrators for Star Wars: Uprising!


It was super fun to wear, wasn't heavy at all but omg so hot!! was sweating so badly lol. My next helmet is definitely going to have a fan in it!!
yes i know it's no where near approval yet, lots of tweaking to do :)

So much fun!

Don't worry about not being quite there for approval. I feel everyone should do a con in armor before getting their kit fully ready for approval anyways... Helps you figure out the kinks, areas for improvement, etc...

Kits are looking pretty good though!

Some shortcuts were taken to meet the deadline, but you had fun and they'll be sorted soon enough and you'll be ready to apply in no time.  :)

cut down the breast/collar plates down a bit, fits better :)
so now need to re-paint. they got really damaged since the paint didn't have time to cure properly and i didn't put enough clear coats on at the end. and i didn't put a clear coat on the gun either haha so lots of black markings.
i think i'm gonna take some time and come up with a neat design so they're not straight blue.

so... guess next armor party i get to sand all the paint off... yay.


also decided to go for some shnees! so we're going to have an island shnee party at some point! :D

Shnee party!!! Yay! We need to find a good template for them...we only have what...5 sets of them make? Maybe 6? Once you sand the paint off, I really think we should try giving your chest plates a good reshape. We also need to do a bucket bucket party too. Only....4 helmets and 2 verd'ika buckets to make.
