    Wow Davide. This really turned into something very nice. I haven't studied the character yet but I really look forward to getting to know him and the costume. Yours is a very worthy first step. Well done troopers.

  12. I would say that you should check with your GML before you go forward with full helmet idea. Personally I don't see a problem with it due to the following reasons. 1 - The CRL is still listed as WIP. I'd say that opens for some leeway. 2 - Mask is a somewhat ambiguous term and the CRL reads: I'd say that, in it self, would give you the option of doing a full mask/helmet. 3 - Concerning the hood the CRL states: Meaning that technically you could have a Hello Kitty back to your mask because it shouldn't be visible anyway. Considering that a mask/helmet that would sit so snuggly on your face I'm sure you would want to keep the back open because of the heat. Only time and experience will tell though. If you really want a full head mask/helmet I'd suggest you make it two-piece (as per #1 above) so you could decide to go without the back on warmer days or when the event is formal and the hood should be up all times (as per #3 above).

    Considering that the CRL is yet to be defined I'm assuming it can be formulated to allow for both options. I would say that the CRL for the Gunner might serve as some inspiration with its many "Optional configurations". http://www.501st.com/databank/Costuming ... ial_gunner As I understand your helmet can't be opened so as far as optional configurations. # 1 - Helmet Only - Staying on and closed in public. No facial make up necessary appart from keeping hair invisible. # 2 - Helmet and partial make up - Helmet may be opened in public. Visible parts of the face must use make up (or mask). # 3 - Helmet and full make up - Helmet may be open or removed in public. Possibly the make up accessories might be listed as optional accessories or listed as "and/or" with the above conditions listed. Referencing other active CRLs you might want to consider the following. ROTJ Vader does not require a "Vader unmasked" facial make-up even though there are clear references in the movie how he looks under and the fact that he actually removes his mask in the movie. http://www.501st.com/databank/Costuming:SL_rotj_vader Even though we know that Palptine have tufts of hair on the back of his head post his Mace Windu debacle there is no mentioning of hair being a necessary (or optional for that matter) part of an Palpatine costume. http://www.501st.com/databank/Costuming ... ne_emperor There are probably more CRLs in support of this, but from the top of my head. Hope it answers some of your questions surrounding the topic.

    Hey! I actually understood a few of the textile-lingo there. So this is your first time with a sewing machine. Impressive! I still have an irrational fear of the machine. I need to overcome it for my A'Sharad Hett build. Looking forward to see you all dressed up and ready for approval.

    This is a very nice project. I'm no expert in the character but looking through your build really presents her. Thank you for that. The only thing I can think of, apart from the things you've already mentioned, are the bicep wraps. In your most recent reference picture it seems they are wrapped slightly slanted. This, however, might be a case of difference in camera and arm position. I assume the slant might be difficult to recreate in a real life situation. Using elastics wraps might work and also make them as snug as your lower arm wraps. But I'm no textile expert so please feel free to disregard this as uneducated guesswork. A picture from the same angle as the reference picture (slightly down and to your left) would give a nice view of the costume too. I really enjoy these original builds on the TFE and yours is a fine example of it. Keep it up!
