  3. TK 28222 Requesting access http://501st.com/members/displaymemberdetails.php?userID=25760 I FINALLY finished my first costume, now onto the next one... Starkiller

    Yes you're correct about the gloves not being listed, but I was going based on the gloves that were presently shown in the image on the CRL. I'll be sure to add this to my list of things that need to be changed on my list Thank you!
  5. Starkiller: Dark Lord's Armor (hoth)

    Now this helps GREATLY!!!! Let me ask one question... are the gloves on the CRL the correct ones? I mean with the pattern on the top of the hand. I've got a pair of gloves and I'm going to have to "alter" them to fit the CRL, but with yours they're regular non-patterned gloves? I'm going to have to replicate your cable method as well because that's amazing! I was going to use lug-nuts that are attached/glued to a cable somehow so they'd still be detachable (for storage reasons lol). These are great, thank you!!!!!!!!
  6. Hello from Tampa!!!

    Thanks! I'll be checking that section out frequently!
  7. Starkiller: Dark Lord's Armor (hoth)

    Hello! I'm running into the same problem currently. There is the CRL (which has been brought to my attention isn't completely correct/finished atm, then there are in-game reference images (which has been provided by the detachment leader): http://www.theflagshipeclipse.com/forums/index.php?/gallery/category/34-starkiller-dark-lords-armor-hoth/ As well as modeling your gear/suit off of: https://wickedarmor.com/project/lord-starkiller-costume/ As I have also been told that this guy currently has a VERY close replica costume (and by very close I mean I've been told to model mine off of this as well). Hope these help
  8. Starkiller: Dark Lord's Armor (hoth)

    You've answered my questions, thank you! I usually stick to the CRL because I'm new (almost approved on my first outfit). The CRL I was referencing with my TK is a popular one so when I saw this one I noticed some things were off, but I didn't know if it was part of the tier 1 and so on? The more I started looking into it is when I came across your thread. So you're a great deal of help and I'm glad to have come to the forums after deciding on my next (SL hoth) outfit. The only thing that was worrisome are the images on the CRL. At the very least should be updated... for those people who use the CRL as strict reference. Thank you again
  9. Starkiller: Dark Lord's Armor (hoth)

    I've read your entire thread and I'm going to be making this costume as well, but I think everything should be listed in the CRL. Upon reading more I noticed this: "This Visual Guide has been reviewed by the detachment staff and the LMO team and is certified for use as a minimum approval guideline for GMLs. GMLs are free to approve this costume type." So is it safe to say that the visuals of this outfit are the bare minimum? There's so much missing and if I were to just follow the CRL I'd be denied Again... there needs to be a CLEARLY stated minimum requirement like you've suggested here. It'll make the ENTIRE APPROVAL process easier on the GML reviewing for submission (not to mention it'll also be less stress on the one making/buying all the parts for this costume). I'm also going to be compiling a "list" of the required items for bare minimum approval. The CRL is unreliable with this costume (as has been stated already)
  10. Starkiller Dark Lords Armor?

    Why am I just now seeing this?! Thank you for the reply and explaining the boots and such to me! I'll be keeping a eye out for some!
  11. Hello from Tampa!!!

    I am terribly sorry for the late reply, but the recent Hurricane we had made things a little hectic. So now things are getting back to "normal" Grazie!!!! So far I'm experiencing a great vibe here So far I'm experiencing the same thing. The only problem I'm having is getting the helmet... I have someone that I've asked if I could get them to make one and they've agreed, but they're extremely busy at the moment so I'm having to wait... which isn't a bad thing since I'm also focusing on my TK and awaiting approval for that as well! I have the suit from a local seamstress, who's already met with me and taken my measurements, got a pair of boots that I can adjust to make acceptable for the CRL (since it's a little tough to find a decent pair of there here that aren't rubber). I am "decent" with making things so I've decided to make the shoulder pieces and belt buckle along with the "crotch guard". The different lightsaber hilts are going to cause me a LITTLE trouble, but as long as there's plenty of reference photos I'll be fine. I don't want to spend $300+ on each saber haha. I'll be shooting you a PM shortly, thank you I've always been a fan of this character from the games
  12. Starkiller Dark Lords Armor?

    Also had another question. With the suit/jacket... did you make your own? And if so, out of what? I believe it was your thread that was mentioning pool liners? I tried to research more and was unable to find anything and your thread is using photobucket... which doesn't allow for third-party posts now (unless you pay to upgrade?!). I can make the other things easily (which some time lol), but the jacket was the only one I was concerned with at the moment (the vest part won't be that tough either)
  13. Starkiller Dark Lords Armor?

    Wow thank you very much! Hope he does unfinished products for a tad bit less, but if not then I'll continue to save up
  14. Hello from Tampa!!!

    I must say... you're a life saver! I've been compiling reference photos in the extreme case that I have to go through and create my helmet out of EVA foam lol. I have some experience in working with it, but thought I'd ask around here first. Thank you
  15. Starkiller Dark Lords Armor?

    I have made myself a intro thread and was directed here to ask more. I am new to the site, but currently making a TK. I've been just wondering if there's anyone I can talk to about possibly pricing around how much it would cost for the hard armor pieces of this costume? B
