  1. Are side vents like these acceptable for 501st approval? My first bucket build I did without them, and WHOA, it's tough to see!
  2. My Tusken Raider Build

    Thanks, Arcturus. I actually met with TJ from Alpine Garrison on Saturday, and got a bunch of tips. Even though I screwed up on the eyes and nose, it was fun and a good practice for the build. I'm looking forward to building the bucket Mk II as soon as I can! I appreciate all of the replies, and welcome more as my build progresses.
  3. My Tusken Raider Build

    Okay, I think I've figured this thing out. I've put a page up on my build on my personal web page, and I think I can now link pictures... Here we go! First, pictures of the three bandoliers - built, but not weathered yet: Next, build pictures on my helmet: I still need to put the top spikes on, then do the weathering.
  4. My Tusken Raider Build

    I got my boots wrapped. Now they need weathering.

    Here's a larger view of the 1908 Enfield Bandolier. I used the pattern found here: http://www.studiocreations.com/howto/tuskenraider/images/1908_enfield_bandolier_pattern_2015.pdf (bandolier) and here: http://www.studiocreations.com/howto/tuskenraider/images/1908_enfield_pouches_pattern.pdf (pouches)

    Ok, my friends, Here is some more work in progress: Tea-dyeing fabric for arm/leg/head wrapping: Tea-dyed strips drying on my couch: 1908 Enfield Bandolier built: Some weathering done on the 1908 Enfield Bandolier: Anyone have any comments/suggestions on if I need more weathering and how to do it? I'm a total noob here. Thanks! -Papa Bear (Criss)

    Sorry for the incredibly low-res pictures, but I am not allowed to upload any better photos if I want to do more than one a day. Starting the pepakura build: Crown of the head coming along: "Helmet" portion done: Starting the face: More face build: Face is almost done: Building the nose: Ready for Plastidip!

    Thank you all for your replies. If I may ask, where would one find fiberglass/resin to use in a build?
  9. Tusken Mask Greebly stats

    Does anyone have the measurements for the eye pieces, spikes, tusks and nose pieces for a Tusken Raider head? I'm trying to fabricate something, but I'm not sure of sizes. I built Toolguy301's pepakura bucket, and it fits me perfect without adjusting the file. Any help would be appreciated. -Criss (sifubear)
  10. My Tusken Raider Build

    Now I need to figure out how to fabricate the eyes/nose/cheeks/head spikes. I do not have access to a 3-D printer, so that's out. Any ideas?
  11. My Tusken Raider Build

    Once I finished the papercraft build, I sprayed it inside and out with four layers of "Plasti-dip", to seal the paper and help it hold its shape when I sweat inside it.
  12. My Tusken Raider Build

    Hi all! I've decided to document my build here so I can get tips/tricks/advice from you brilliant people! (yes, I'm sucking up in hopes that you will be nice to me.) I downloaded Toolguy301's pepakura file, and printed it on 100# cardstock. Then I got to work... I will shrink the pictures so I can upload them here. Somehow I've screwed it up, and it won't allow me to do anything right now... Total noob here.
  13. Howdy All!

    Howdy all. I just wanted to say I'm very happy to be a new member of the Clan, and am excited to build my Tusken Raider! I'm a 48 year old geek who is a HUGE Star Wars Fan. Any and all help and advice is welcome! -Criss (sifubear)
  14. Side Screen?

    Do those pass 501st guidelines? They are really good!
  15. I appreciate the pepakura file! Now I have to figure out how to fabricate the eyes/tusks/etc. I wish I had access to a 3D printer!
