Thanks lads.

I really have enjoyed putting this together even though it's been frustrating along the way and made a few mistakes.

It can take a few weeks to get approval Carl, hopefully it will be quicker.

You're right about the fans Jay, I have a few fitted in my Stormie helmet along with a mic
which goes to a speaker in the suit.

Next up is Fett, should have some nice update photos for you soon.

That's awesome!

I am like Jay, if I had somewhere to wear it and things to do with it I would be all over a Stormie suit! Just think its a bit out of my league price wise at the moment, maybe in a few years.

I really do like where you have gone with this Stu, good luck on the approval!

You still hunting for a Biker suit Jimmy?

I was at Southbank yesterday with the kids, quite a few skaters.

Would have loved to have seen you tearing up that place.

Had my first full suit up tonight with what I have so far.

Still lots to be done. Belts and Gun are on there way, cod piece to attach.

Still need to weather the cream Flak Jacket that the armour is attached to and weather the boots.

Then the Jet Pack to come...

He hasn't seen me in it yet mate.

He was in bed tonight when I got these photos done.

Hopefully it will be ready for end of November. :drumroll:

I think the Fett will end up better than the stromtrooper. I guess it takes more than just rolling around in the dirt to get the weathered look Razz I can't wait for the Tusken raider - the head of that is awesome Smile

Hiya Carl,

All going well bud, glad to hear you're spending money Twisted Evil

Where you getting your Blaster from?

Haven't done an update in here for a while.

Well I completed my first troop as a stormie, here's some photos...

I'm the short trooper by the way!

Went round a mates tonight as we have a troop tomorrow night and this is his first venture out as Vader.
I'm going as a TK but I thought I would take all my Fett gear round and have my first full suit up.

Gutted as half way to his house I realised I left my gloves at home.

Now tonight's trial run was mainly for him, so I didn't get much help suiting up therefore my ammobelt is sitting wrong, my braids
are not well positioned and my gautlet hoses need sorting.

I still need to weather my Flak vest and get my knee armour connections correct.

I'm waiting on my shin tools and Jet Pack.

But this is me so far, let me know what you think.

Hey Stu,

I didn't know you were so much in trooping till I saw your limelight.

Great costumes!!

I also like your Tusken Raider prop, a fantastic piece.

I have a cousin who is pretty active as well. He has made himself a AT AT driver and TIE Fighter pilot costume. The AT AT driver costume was not suitable for an application for the 501st he told me, because it was weathered too much and therefore did not exactly resemble the AT AT drivers in the movie. The 501st seems to be quite strict, is that also your experience? How about those AT-AT drivers climbing out of their AT AT walker after it was shot down, for sure they wouldn't have sparkling white costumes any more. Oh dumb, we did not see that happening in the movie actually. doh
Below you see his costume (protoype without the appropiate boots Very Happy)

Glad to see there is another prop and costume nut around these parts! Great work all around and your Fett is coming together very well Smile I helped a friend of mine with his Fett costume. That's a project that never ends but merely "upgrades".

Hiya lads,

I've been quiet on the vintage front recently as I have started building a few costumes which is taking time and funds.

It all started years ago when I bought a Stromtrooper helmet, my missus put her foot down and said 'no way was I buying a bloody stormtrooper outfit, toys are bad enough!'

Then I had the opportunity to purchase a full set of armour with boots from a friend on these boards some months ago. This opened a whole new world of forums - UKgarrison.co.uk, dentedhelmet.com, bikerscout.net and whitearmour.net.

These guys take the building of armour and costuming very seriously but still offer great advice and there is a real good community spirit, much like what we have here.


This then led me onto buying a beautiful Tusken helmet which I will finish with a full costume later in the year....

My Props and costume WIP limelight - Page 2 IMG_4195.


Burnsy, I have enjoyed viewing your trooping pictures as Stormtrooper and Boba Fett - ROTJ. I especially like your spot on Boba Fett, which brings me to this question, are you already a member of the 501st UK Garrison? If you are cleared, what is your 501st Legion TK-ID? Cool

I can see that you're also involved with Tusken Raider prop and costuming. Splendid, here is a picture of me appearing as an ANH-Male Tusken Raider DZ-2870 My Props and costume WIP limelight - Page 2 Tusken2

My Props and costume WIP limelight - Page 2 DZ-2870on16Dec2006


and another recent picture as the weathered Sandtrooper chilling out 2 fellow clean Stormtroopers Stormie Smiley TK-8249 (L) and TK-6033 (R) during 31 December 2010, while awaiting the New Year's count down...
