  1. Hi there, requesting Detachment Access. Please find my 501st profile for Starkiller on here: http://www.501st.com/members/displaymember.php?userID=14132&costumeID=150 Thanks and kind regards!
  2. Came across this topic and was glad to see, that there will be soon another female Starkiller around Hope, that we can see some pictures of the costume and the work in progress soon! Keep us updated!
  3. Lightsaber electronics are still a work in progress, but guess who was approved last week
  4. Thanks for your comments. I shortened the cloak so I don't step on it any longer. Also pulled it further to the chest. Thanks for mentioning that. Looks much better now Lightsaber is nearly done, but unfortunately at the moment without any electronics. Hope that I can change that soon...
  5. Sorry for not writing for such a long time, but I was quite busy with studies and - of course - with my Starkiller project. I took the shine off of the leather straps on the shoulder bells and I was trying hard to change how the should padding sticks to the flak vest, but that's something I can't really change. As you mentioned it doesn't really matter when I wear the cloak After all that's what I've done over the last few weeks / months. Lightsaber is still work in progress but I hope I can finish it soon. Having problems with the soundboard at the moment
  6. Okay, solved the problem the expensive way Bought another pair of boots - also online, as it is impossible to buy such big boots in a store somewhere close to my hometown. They are according to the seller even 3 or 4 centimeteres more than I would need, so enough space. As soon as I have those and checked that they fit perfectly I will sell the other pair plus one pair of other boots which I took as an alternative for another costume. Will wear the "Starkiller" boots for both of the outfits than and probably make up the costs of the new boots... We'll see ^^ In between I made some pictures of the progresses I made on my costume. However, don't have my Chest and Throat Armor on, as I need to re-paint them. Also the cloak is missing as I change it a bit and it hasnt yet a velcro for closing it. Further pics coming soon
  7. Hi there! My costume is near to being complete, will post some more WIP pictures soon. But I have one "huge" problem to solve and have no idea on how to work that one out I bought those boots on ebay, which are already really wide for boots you buy in Germany. Really wide means, that they were about 4 cm too tight for me. I do much sports, thats why my calves are very packed with muscles. Though I bought the boots cause someone assured me that it would be no problem to widen them to my size as they are completly made of leather and not leatherette with some rubber parts. Now I had them widened but they are still to tight as the guy only widened them for about 3 cm. Now he says that he must insert more material, but can't widen them any more... As it is only 0,5 to 1 cm that is still missing I don't want to have any material inserted, probably this work will cost a lot. The boots themselves costed about 35 euros and to have them widend another 15 euros. Don't want to pay another 20 or 30 euros for only 0,5 or 1 cm more Do you have any hints on how I could solve the problem? I know I won't get any other boots over here in Germany that are wider, as the ones I have are already "extremely" wide. However, I will be in the UK next weekend and wanted to know wether it is easier to get boots there that are wide enough, as someone told my in the UK the shoestores are "specialised" on bigger sizes. Maybe also on wider ones? Don't know. Anyone having experiences? Thanks halcyon
  8. that's awesome, really great job. keep on with that excellent work!
  9. Hi! Thanks for your replies and your feedback. That helped a lot and got me on some things I didn't even realize before. Thank you I will start working on a lightsaber as soon as possible, too. I know it is not necessary, but somehow I want the outfit to be "complete" I will also get some color for the grey tabards and start on the pattern It took me a while to write on here again, as I wanted to have one of your suggestions applied to my outfit. Well, I tried and it would be great to get some opinion. I tried to make some changes to the chest plates and got this one. Of course it is not yet sticky to the padding, thats why I have my fingers on it I tried to make it follow the line of my chest a bit more. Only one side done and not yet painted, but, well, see for yourself. Pictures not to great, did them in front of a mirror halcyon
  10. Hi! Thanks for sharing the idea of using an eye hook. That's a great idea, will try on that one. My cloak can't be closed right now. It was just improvised for the photos. I will post another picture, when I have solved that problem...and the one with the neck armor standing away from my neck ^^ The questions I was referring to were the 3 ones from the first post. I have quite a hard time, finding answers to them. Maybe those things aren't as important in fact as I think and maybe don't matter for 501st approval (? - I don't know :-s) , but I'm always about the details. Thank you halcyon
  11. Sorry for double posting, but can anyone answer my questions, please? Can't go on working on the outfit without having those questions answered. Would be really glad if anyone could help me.
  12. Hi! First of all thanks for your reply and sorry, that I'm writing so late. Had been very busy these days and then had been abroad for a couple of days. Thanks for mentioning the straps. Actually they are dark maroon. I hadn't realised, that they turned out that "black" in the photos. Now that I know, I will lighten them a bit with a leather spray, so that they cannot be taken for being black anymore. Good point. Thanks I'm not quite sure with the chest armor. Had it done smaller first, but when I put the cloak on the shouler padding could be seen between the armor parts and the cloak. As this isn't the case on the reference pics I thought it would be best to "stretch" it a bit, so that the padding is covered. I'll try to get the cloak closed as soon es possible so that I can take another picture to see how it worked. Well otherwise I'll do it again. Luckily I have some spare material I can use that isn't to expensive
  13. Hi! A couple of days ago I started on my Starkiller project. I'm nearly done with all the sewing stuff and would like to have some opinions on what I've done so far, because at the moment it is easier to change things than when all the work is done. It would be great if you could give me some opinions. I already think that I have to change one or two things, but first of all would like to hear what you think. I'm absolutely not happy with how the neck armor is pushed upwards by the cloak, so if anyone had an idea on how I could change that, it would be awesome. And don't worry about the double sash. I still have to buy the paint for the patterns on it and it is not yet attached to the other costume parts. Just wanted to have it in to give the costume a more finished look. Also I have some questions on some of the details of the outfit and I would be glad if anyone could answer them. 1. Is there a rule on how the patterns on the double sash must look like? Or is it just important that the stuff seen is most similar to the reference pictures as possible? 2. I saw in the reference pictures, that Starkiller has a Darth Vader lightsaber. Should it be the Vader lightsaber or can it also be the Starkiller lightsaber? 3. And then I realized that on one picture he has that sort of holster for the lightsaber. Is that necessary? As in the standards it mentions only the covertec clip I guess that should be enough? Thanks Darth Halcyon
