  3. Hello everyone!! I've always wanted to join the 501st, and now that I'm no longer considered a youngling, I can!! After months and months of research (both on and off of these forums), I ultimately decided to construct a male Tusken Raider costume. I bought Darth Hair's Tusken Raider helmet kit from his Etsy, as well as the kit to make a Gaffi stick. I began the build tonight... So far, I've riveted the two main plastic pieces of the helmet together. Am I ready to go trooping yet? No? Okay.. I also drilled and sanded down the holes for the eyepieces, as well as drilled the holes for the front tusks. Tomorrow I plan on making the holes for the head spikes. Anyone have any measurements or advice on where to place them? Also, I'm thinking about drilling a bunch of random holes all over the helmet, to make it more breathable. I'll be trooping in hot and humid areas, so the more breathable the costume, the better. These holes would be covered by cloth anyways, so would that be allowed? Also, thanks to @HappyTrooper for creating so many useful posts and videos!! I see myself frequenting your build posts in the upcoming weeks!

  8. I like the idea of these little guys carrying a gun half their size. Based on the SMLE 303 rifle with a grenade cup attached to the end. Shouldn't be too hard.... Step 1: Semi Fail. Took a mold from a friends 303. With some work this could be good but due to warping of the clay mold the plaster cast is basically unusable. Fail. The up side is i can use this for some accurate measurements and shaping. Step 2: start again. Bunnnings (Thats an Australian hardware store) full frontal attack. Got away spending less than $25.00. That's a first! I completed a sketch to help me stay on task. Cutting Gal pipe for the breach.

    Figure I would post up my photos. This is my TLJE that I got approved! This is my Jawa that I submitted recently. GML came back and asked to cover the mask eyes better and possible color being off with the eyes. I think the lighting messed it up so I took another. Any comments are more than welcome!

    Thank you for the warm welcome! Got a couple fixes on my mask to do and then I should be approved. Can't wait to join you all!

  19. Giant Jawa Build Thread

    I took a break from this costume to work on quilts I want to send out for the holidays, but now I'm back at work. My husband called me last week and told me that he signed us up to do a troop "on the 14th, the day before the premiere." He forgot that the movie is coming out on the 14th here in Germany, and we already purchased tickets for one of the two English-language showings of the movie. The event is just a very short drive from the theater, but since it's a two-hour event ending at the showtime of the movie, we are only going to be able to stay for the first hour. So now I'm frantically trying to make my Jawa close enough to approvable to attend the event. Wish me luck!

    Thanks for the tips! I love the idea of using velcro to secure my sleeves to my gloves, and I have the equipment I need for the sound system I want to make. Just need the time to work on everything.

    Wow! I no longer feel weird about being only 6'1" and trooping as a Jawa! (Also, sorry about inadvertently "stealing" your user name.)
  22. Congrats! You did a fantastic job and really deserve this honor!
