Well, here it goes.
First things first, I am going to be sewing everything myself and scratch-building the rest along with some help from my 3d printer.
I purchased the helmet file for the male tusken and found some nice eye/blood spitter files on Thingiverse and began printing.
All of the fabric was purchased in 2 lumps. I found an awesome seller on ebay with a herringbone pattern fabric that will be great for the AOTC tusken. I just love the pattern and look of the AOTC tuskens. The other lump was ordered from fabric.com and I got a bunch of cotton gauze for wraps, natural / darker tan denims, and some monk cloth for the wife's female tusken.
Here is the start to the mask: (Printing in PLA)
All parts printed out:
Taping everything together was pretty easy. I glued using all purpose PVC, ABS, etc. glue used in plumbing which bonds this plastic really well.
I went ahead and glued everything except for the tooth part. That is just sitting there in the photo.
Next up boots!
I shredded up a ton of denim for the boots. I like the look of denim on these and it will hold up a bit better that the cotton gauze on the boots (some AOTC photos show cotton gauze or crinkle cotton used on boots, others seem to show denim based...just depends on which tusken you look at).
I don't like rain boots that much, but I may make the move. I used some inexpensive cloth boots. This took a ton of e6000.
My wife had some rain boots, and I used barge cement which worked a LOT faster for those. Then I weathered them up with some dye left over from dying my gloves.
It is hard to see the texture on this, but I tried to capture it. It is a raised texture for the herringbone pattern.
The pattern was going the wrong way on the fabric so I couldn't use just one piece. I had to use the pattern from Studio Creations: ttp://www.studiocreations.com/howto/tuskenraider/main.html
That is it for now, but a ton more to come.
