    Trooping in Character

    I tend to laugh A LOT when I'm hanging out with my Star Wars family and one of the hardest things for me going from Mando and RC to a face character (Starkiller) was trying to figure out what to do with my face. Thankfully my group here in the Dune Sea Garrison isn't TOO strict about staying in character, because I do tend to remove my helmet when I see a kid afraid of me & I still have a hard time dropping the smile for pics when I'm in my SK...luckily my newest SK project (Heavy Training Gear) covers the lower half of my face

    Darth Malgus (CRL Update needed)

    Thanx for this info Rep Com! As you may be aware, we are currently reviewing several of the TFE CRLs at the moment and Malgus is one that I'm working on. I appreciate you doing some of the leg work on this and I will be adding this to the mountain of references I am sifting thru

    AlphaZulu Starkiller Concept Build

    Great progress so far! One of my favorite things about this hobby is learning new things, over the years I have learned, fiberglass work, painting/weathering techniques, electronics, leatherwork & most recently sewing, I also love seeing folks learning new thigns as well. Keep up the good work & good luck on the rest of your build!

    Darth Revan - Seeking Advice/Info

    AlphaZulu Starkiller Concept Build

    Welcome! Glad to see another Starkiller in the works (there aren't NEARLY enough of us). I'm still a fledgling Costume Mentor, but I have been pouring over the CRLs that fall in my scope, so if I can lend a hand, please feel free to reach out & I'll do what I can to help. Good luck on your trip down the rabbit hole

    Naasad gets heavy

    Hi guys, Been a while since I was on here, but with my new position in the detachment I plan to be more active. With that in mind I wanted to show you what AZStarkiller has been up to lately. So a couple months ago I decided to upgrade the soft parts of my TIE Factory gear (wraps, tunic, pants) & while I was at it, I figured I'd make the parts for the Heavy Training gear as well, since it is so close to what I have already. I don't have much in the way of progress to share, so for now I'll just share the parts I have collected so far. First up I went and got a bunch of fabric (12 yards iirc) and I had a friend design and print the backpack for me. The red plates are printed in opaque filament so that the lights will shine thru & my friend also left me a space for a battery pack with wire pass throughs for the lights. I also had my friend design and print the hand plates and knuckle details for the gloves (opaque filament used for the screen on the left plate) One of the MAJOR upgrades I have planned for my SK costumes is to build myself a proper weapon. Here's what I have in the works, it is a Korbanth 2.0 graflex that I converted myself, currently it is empty as I sold my MHS one to fund this one, but I am planning on a NeoPixel build with a double crystal reveal. Really looking forward to getting these projects finished up as I haven't been able to suit up as Starkiller in FAR too long and I really miss being him. As always, thanx for looking and lemme know what you guys think
  8. Done...thanx again Valkyria!

    Naasad's Training Gear

    So I apologize for the double post, but I made some more progress yesterday & wanted to share... Hey guys, sorry for the double post, but it's update time again!! Got the collar done: I was also able to finish my saber hilt yesterday (had a productive day ): My next paycheck is a "free" one (3rd for the month so no rent or car payment) & it has a ton of OT on it so Im going to be getting my fabric & then start working on the soft parts, in the meantime I still need to finish the belts (something I plan to do this week) & then do the gauntlet. As always, thanx for looking & I look forward to hearing thoughts & critiques! Chris S.

    Naasad's Training Gear

    Greetings Programs! Long time no see, but rest assured I'm still working on Starkiller! Couple weeks ago I bought myself half a cow & started working on my belts. I need to get them dyed, make the slide clasps & then start assembling them, but they are underway: Next up is my collar...I went ahead & rebuilt it rather than updating my old one & I'm MUCH happier with it. I had an issue with my paint & I fear that I'm going to have to sand down the collar yet again & repaint, but here's what I have so far: & finally, as I don't have the money at the moment for a proper saber hilt, I'm making one of my own out of PVC, definitely want to explore a metal one down the road, but this will have to do for now & it's not bad, if I do say so myself: All in all I'm very happy with how things are going (despite the setbacks) & if all goes well, I'll have my fabric for the soft parts in a couple weeks. Till then, I have 6 belts & a collar to finish as well as the gauntlet to do so I've got plenty to work on. Lemme know what you think & as always, comments & critiques are welcome. Thanx for looking!

    Naasad's Training Gear

    Wow, I'd totally forgotten I'd started this thread. Not sure what the rules are on necro-posting, but I have decided Starkiller WILL happen this year & I'm hoping to have him ready for Phoenix Comic Con in June. I've already started collecting the leather for the belts & will start assembling them soon, but I came upon something I can't find an answer to in the CRLs,how are belts attached to the side release clips? In the reference & CRL pics, I see no rivets, snaps or Chicago screws, which leaves stitching...but I don't see that either. Can you guys give some ideas? Thanx.
