  1. Since I'm going to have my Tusken helmet pull double duty for Hett, I was planning to leave one of the wraps loose and then attach the braid by sliding it underneath and using a couple snaps to attach it so that the braid won't pivot on just one point of attachment.
  2. Greetings, sorry for the delayed response...sounds like you have a good start! I have the same problem with my training gear boots (luckily they get covered by wraps 🤪). For yours, I'd recommend looking at boots that have elastic near the top or even a zipper on the inside of your calves. Once the greaves are on, it should cover any zipper gap. If I can help out in anyway, please feel free to reach out directly and I will do what I can to lend a hand.
  3. This is freaking amazing! Love the attention to detail and all the purpose built dividers! I always wanted to have something like this for my kits, this is a great inspiration!
  4. Yes, mine is set up between the visor and the helmet, but a lot of people put it above the visor and it's never even seen (this is something I will probably do for mine eventually)
  5. Ya, EL wire is pretty dim. The 3mm stuff is sufficiently bright tho, especially on smaller visors...A pixel strip would definitely be better if you can get it diffused properly to avoid the corncob effect. My original clone visor was a clear face shield that I put mirrored blue tint on. The tint didn't work out so well so I ended up going with a mirrored scorpion motorcycle visor. Per request, here's a close up pic of my clone helmet. Compared to the Christmas lights in my shoulder attachment, the EL above my visor is pretty dim, but it still gets the job done
  6. For my clone I used EL wire...EL wire is really easy to use and can be cut to length to run around the entire perimeter of the lens. The one downside to EL wire is that some people hear the quiet ringing which is a function of the EL wire that makes it work. Not everyone can it tho (I've spent too many hours on the gun range and my tinitus blocks it out), but it is there. As for diffusion, I'm not sure how to accomplish that and keep the visor see thru. you can sand the the outside of the EL wire to make it more opaque rather than clear and sanding the edge of the visor before you glue the EL wire in place might also help. I would also recommend that you put black electrical tape on the inside, covering the EL wire completely. The reason for this is 2-fold, it keeps the light off your face and in the dark and it also keeps the light out of your eyes so you can still see out of the visor. Hopefully this helps, please feel free to reach out if you have specific questions
  7. Good evening..er morning? I am the costume mentor that oversees this particular costume (all the SK costumes in fact). The Sith Stalker unfortunately is a pretty rare one and one that has not gotten a fully completed CRL as of yet. All of the pictures are there, but there isn't any write up for him. I would recommend taking a look at the pics posted in the CRLs (link below) as a jumping off point and I will see what I can do about getting the CRL updated. In the meantime check out the board located under the Sith Legends section of the 501st approved costumes board for all the SK builds, you might find someone there that has finished this costume and can provide specific insight. CRL link: https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:SL_starkiller_sithstalker Starkiller board link https://www.theflagshipeclipse.com/forums/index.php?/forum/118-starkiller/ Good luck in your build! Please feel free to reach out to me if you any questions and I will do what I can to lend a hand getting this costume done
  8. I believe he's referring to the Heavy Training Gear (at least that's my translation of HTG). If so, I look forward to seeing your progress! I've been sitting on mine for FAR too long and maybe seeing your progress will get me up off my butt and finish it. Good luck on your build! please let us know if you need any help.
  9. VERY impressive work so far!! Fellow Merc here btw, I have a Training gear SK as well as his Arena gear from TFUII
  10. Awesome job! Those boots are 🔥🔥
  11. Sorry to hear about your issues with your GMLs, I personally think you look freaking awesome! This is one on my costume "to do" list and I'm hoping some parts of my generic Tusken (boots, arm wraps, head) can carry over to Hett eventually.
