    Dear all,

    Some pics ST asked me to post here, the suits he made for halloween. He makes them himself!
    I think it's a very nice job, and also a previously unseen form of modelling ;)
    enjoy!

    Awesome! I'll bet you can't buy that in a store.

    Thanks for the compliments fellas.Thanks for posting these PP.The helmets,armor and chestbox you definately can't buy in stores.You have to know where to look.Modelling skills are definately a plus.The blaster Boba has was originally orange.I sprayed it black then weathered it.The chestboxes came as kits that had to be built and painted.

    Most excellent, ST! I have some friends who are Star Wars costumers, so I know something about the amount of time and effort this sort of thing takes! Maybe I should have someone post some old photos I have in this topic.

    One of them is, but I don't have any pictures of him in his armor. I do have some of a friend in his Darth Vader costume, though. It was a nice one; even the lights worked. And I have pictures of many other very nice costumes.

    I'd love to see them as well.Costuming is another hobby of mine.

    Thanks.With the exception of the guns,boots and flightsuits,everything else in one way or another is made by hardcore Star Wars geeks like me.I trimmed,dyed and mounted the buckles on the belts we're wearing.I really enjoyed that.I'd like to try making something else out of leather.

    They're fantastic! Your next challenge is to make one of those helmets that actually works... :wink:

    Some guys add cooling fans from hard drives.Those helmets get hot.Others add mics and speakers.Some add both options.I'd like to add the fans just to keep the lenses from fogging up.

    My friend with the Vader costume had such problems. When he wore the helmet, it was like being in a sauna. My wife played the Emperor, and she also tended to get quite warm in those robes.
