    Printed the buckle and greeblie. Then made a mold of the buttons and cast them in red resin. We will probably have to do some more finish work on these but wanted to see where they were at for the moment.

    Exactly! Anthony offers his prop and costume services but tries to keep everything he sells to on-hand items. Taking commissions only when he is sure it can be produced by the clients due date. Sometimes life happens and things don't go the way they should. But he always maintains communication with the client so they know what is going on.

    We were just about to post an update today. After filing a dispute with PayPal JawaChopShop got in touch saying he had shipped the package to the wrong address. But still wouldn't provide a tracking number. He did say he would get something shipped out and after another couple of days provided a USPS tracking number. This packed was delayed several times but did finally arrive. And it does have the armor pieces. After talking to some friends who have experience trimming and sizing stormtrooper kits we have decided to not trim anything for the Seventh Sister till after we have the soft goods squared away. A That all being said Anthony sat down last night and modeled the belt buckle and belt greebly and we will have a print of those today.

    Unfortunately we are dealing with some bad news tonight. Originally we ordered a Seventh Sister armor kit from JawaChopShop. We had contacted him before ordering and asked what turn-around time was for the kit. We just wanted an idea of how long of a wait there was going to be so we could plan out a time frame to the costume. JawaChopShop respond that his normal turn around was one week from payment. Then he even sent Anthony a photo alluding to having a kit ready to go. Payment was made on April 4th. We contacted JawaChopShop the next day to confirm he had received the payment. He said he had and would be boxing the kit up that day. We then waited another week and contacted them to see if he happen to have a tracking number. He ignored messages for three more days before saying he would message his wife and get the tracking number from her. Again we waited several days and tried contacting him for a tracking number. Again he ignored messages for several days before saying he couldn't believe it hadn't arrived yet. Once again we asked for a tracking number or even a method of shipment to try and confirm a package was on it's way. He has since stopped responding to all messages and we are going to be forced to file a dispute with PayPal to get our money back. This sucks.

    Anthony finally finished up all the printing on the helmet and mask. Onto finish work! We also traced my hand for a glove pattern and will try and turn those out this weekend.

    wilson5710 has been making progress on the helmet. He plans to remodel the mask portion of the print file so that it is more accurate.

    Well we ordered the armor pieces from JawaChopShop today. He says it will take a week to produce and ship out. So should have that in a couple weeks. Also purchased the helmet file from ... https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/game/helmet-seven-sisters-star-wars I understand this will need some modification once it is printed. Can anyone helps us by pointing out what exactly needs changed?

    Getting ready to pull the trigger to start a Seventh Sister costume. But not entirely sure where to start. I've read through the posts and build threads here and checked out the CRL, knowing the issues with it after all the reading. My main source of angst at the moment is where to acquire the hard parts. We've contacted JawaChopShop about their kit but it doesn't include a helmet. Atlis Armory offers a helmet but they haven't responded to messages. I founf that Do3d offers files to 3D print the pieces but they are also known for junk files. SO what are the options to pursue that maybe we haven't found yet? We have a Taz6 3D printer to be able to print if files are available but has understand the sometimes fragile nature to 3D prints. Any help would be appreciated also in locating a pattern for sewing the soft goods. Thanks!
