    I haven't had any personal dealings with Wicked Armor, but I have heard good things about them...good luck on your build!

    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
  4. 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.

    Ladies love the "T" too With the housings I have built for my phone, they stay snug & secure & no one has ever gotten worked up enough that I have ever feared for the safety of my phone...hopefully I can get the gauntlet started soon & I'll have WIP pics to share Thanx for the feedback Rogue!

    Thanx for the input Rogue, I have been all thru the CRLs & didn't find a good pic of the display. Just out of curiosity, why do you say not to use my phone? I've had ALOT of success with it in my mando & I had a friend work up a high res Starkiller display for it that looks amazing! I will post pics of the gauntlet progress once I actually start on it. Thanx again for the input & I look forward to further critiques & advice

    Greetings Ner Vod! New here, but not to costuming. I've been an official member with the Mercs since 2010 (been an officer with them since 2012) & back in may I pulled the trigger & submitted the app on the RC i've had for 3 years to the RL & The 501st (& was approved). I have been thinking lately that it's time to do a "comfortable" Star Wars kit (meaning one with little to no armor) & I was originally looking at a generic armored Jedi, then a friend told me that I would make a good Starkiller & I remembered that I already had a set of training gear that I had done a few years before for halloween. So I have have brushed the dust off of that 3-day rush build & am researching what it's gonna take to bring it up to 501st/RL standards. First off, here's what I did back in 2009 for halloween, the build took me a whopping 3 days & I think it came out pretty decent... Looking at reference pics on here & other sites I have a good idea of where I need to go from here. Most of the upgrades needed are to the soft parts (mostly switching everything from black to brown) & to the Clavicle armor (need to add the collar & redo the straps). One of the first things I found was that Starkiller wears a gauntlet that I didn't even KNOW about, but I already have a plan for that. I am planning on putting my phone inside the gauntlet & using it for the display, but what I need is a good high res picture of the Gauntlet's Display. Does anyone have one or know where I can get one? I have a couple friends who are good with photoshop & I know the words that are supposed to be on the gauntlet & where they are supposed to be located in the display so if I need to, I can make one. REALLY lookin forward to hearing what you guys think of what I have done so far & getting this kit up to par so I have a nice comfy kit for C7! Thanx for looking! Chris
