  2. How do you hook the saber hilt to the Nihilus costume...? I don't want to hang it on the leather belt, and the CRL doesn't show any hooks anywhere. I suppose I can add some sort of contraption to the belt I use for the skirt, but is there a consensus on what to do...? Thanks!
  3. I'm having trouble with posting photos. What is the best way to get a lot of photos on this site?
  4. Hello everyone! For the past year or so I've been planning on doing a costume and CRL for Jinata Security from Battlefront 2. Mostly its just TK parts but there are some variances. The main thing we are trying to figure right now are the differences between these flight suits and others such as Inferno and Tie. I already have a vendor lined up for the flight suit and most of the armor ready to go. The language in the CRL is a lot of copy and paste, so the flight suit is a copy of the Tie. I'll post the differences the vendor pointed out in my reference photo post. Also there are 4 different variants that appear in game, so I've done a CRL for each. They all share a lot of the same pieces so sorry that its repetitive. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated! Jinata Security, also known as J-Sec, was a law enforcement agency based on the planet Vardos during the reign of the Galactic Empire. Several Jinata Security officers were present alongside the Aqualish Gleb when Iden Versio returned to her homeworld after being court-martialed for sedition. By 34 ABY, Protectorate Gleb ruled Vardos with the support of Jinata Security and the First Order. Jinata Security also supported Project Resurrection, a First Order initiative to create new stormtroopers using conscripted children. After Gleb was killed for her failures and Vardos was locked down by the First Order, J-Sec rebelled against their former allies. Trooper Flight Suit- One piece blue coverall/jumpsuit/flight suit with a front invisible zipper.

The bottom front corner of the pocket is cut off at a bevel on the side pointing in view direction, with the broader upside forming the border of the pen sleeves. The right sleeve has a cargo pocket, about 6" (152mm) wide and 5.75" (146mm) on the bicep. The pocket has a 2"(50.8mm) flap.

  5. Yesterday
  6. Approved this morning! I have to pull the Cape back at troops, as previously mentioned. The good news is that this photo allowed the GML to see details.
  7. Last week

    already got mine and looks like I might have gotten 3 will have to reach back out Sent from my SM-F916U using Tapatalk
  9. Looks nice, though you need to pull the cape over your shoulders and down behind your back, it is not correct like this. Good luck on the approval.

    Watch out with Wicked Armor. Their suit and mask are amazing, but their default mask has THREE ovals at the top of the mask instead of the correct TWO. Rob will correct it if you buy it, but you need to ask and then follow up. They did mine correctly with no problems, but I pointed out the CRL and requested the correction. I submitted for approval yesterday.
  11. Submitted for approval today! I noticed the CRL has been updated again, and blackout (cloth masks) are no longer allowed. Good thing I got the plastic one! I had Wicked Armor make some changes so that the mask only had 2 ovals instead of the 3 he normally makes. Also had them separate the inner tunic from the skirt, though that isn't an issue anymore thanks to DarthValkyria. The costume is comfortable and looks really good on me (if I do say so myself...) Keep your fingers crossed for me!
  12. Thank you very much! Your words give me great cheer XD
  13. They look pretty solid so long as they stay up and don't collapse / crumple too much. I know for LadyB's we brushed on some grey colour to look more like the animated one as well.
  14. So I've been looking at boots for my Ventress and haven't been lucky untill now, potentially. I know its up to my GML to finally decide, but I want some input this option from those who are/more familir.
  15. Hello everyone! My name’s John and from the Connecticut Garrison, ID-91316. My costumes are an ANH staff officer, imperial army trooper, and ROTJ royal guard. I’ve been working on making the CRL(s) for Jinata Security and the LMOs said this detachment would be the best fit. I’m looking forward to working with this detachment :). I got into the 501st because I love being a nerd, and when I found out I could help people at the same time, I had to. Hopefully we’ll all be back to trooping soon!
  16. Been watching this build for a while now & I gotta say it has been a pleasure watching it come together! Second Sister is a great character and you have an amazing job bringing her to life, the quality of your work on the soft parts is inspiring and I look forward to seeing this one finished!
  17. Hello everyone! My name is John, ID 91316 from the Connecticut garrison. I’m working on the CRLs for Jinata Security and look forward to working with this detachment! I have a quick question, for the CRL/build should I post in the CRL or R&D board?
  18. Yay I love Jaesa and seeing this build come along! Looking great so far. I noticed that the boots are pretty much the same as for my Darth Zash build. If you want any close up pictures of what I did just shoot me a message :)

  20. Added some details - Test shot for proportion check

  25. Hey I’m making a Maladi suit, my first. I’ts about The fabric at The shoulders. How many inch do The fabric extend out over The shoulders ? Regards Marianne.
  26. Hi Thomas, I read the Old Post on Trading Card Run, and left a reply . I wanted to know if you could help, Dani Elli from the Luxembourg Garrison advised me to contact you, she informed me that you did numerous trading cards for the TFE and Lux Garrison.

     

    I´m in Germany, we have a Trading Card team as well, but I liked your work and Gloss Cards Better , so I have 3 Characters to do. 1. Darth Vader 2. Jawa (Chief Nebit) 3. Darth Malgus.

     

    Let me know if this is possible, we did the photo sessions in Green Screen Background...as the example.

    There are many photos that can be used but 1st i wanted to check.

    I have plenty more over 650...lol

  27. We used metal buckles as seen in the CRL. You could use Sintra is careful too. The template I made and in her thread was to make a template to then paint the red details. If you wanted to make a positive I guess you could do. If in question credit is appreciated. It would need to be thoroughly sealed if printed as the red shapes. As noted I carefully cut them out then painted. If you were using a cricut or something you could do that, just be sure they are well attached and sealed.
  28. Awesome! Thank you so much for the quick reply. That's a very good point about it being based on a 3D model. Would you recommend sintra/similar material to make the buckles for the bracer straps? Oh, and the greaves. I've seen a template floating around here. Is the idea to print it out and use it to cut/shape/form the material to the shapes? Seems like a silly question, I know but I just want to be sure, haha.
