Not posting here since forever, but basically because I did not have anything to post really. Since C6
is coming, I have something to share.



It was love at first sight. When I saw this sculpture, I told my wife: why not? Not completely finished, but I would say 85%. Can't bring the rifle and gaderffis to Orlando in my luggage, so will be finishing those props back to Argentina. This is basically a making-of mega post. Most of you, Ben's fans should know about this new collectible so won't post photos of that, but my progress, making-of and final results:







Complete album:

Created and modified a lot of things, which I will list down there. Click on each link to see the making-of. As I always say, a picture is worth a thousand words.

As I could have forgotten a link, or misplaced it, here you have the complete picasa web album link just in case:

All items and accesories were created by me, so If you have any question, don't hesitate in contact me. See some of you on Orlando. Have to prep my backpack and start to walk from Argentina. Long trip. May the Force be with you!

Cool outfit... It would be cool to have this as formal suit, or at least informal

See you at Orlando

Great job! As soon as I saw the sculpture I immediately thought "I need to do a costume of that." Great to see someone else has also had the same idea. Hopefully I'll be able to make one as well.

I have to say brother, that Obi Wan has never been a saint of my devotion (Except for ep4, the prequels pretty much ruined the character for me)

But this statue made it for me. that single image of him carrying his gear and survival stuff looking for a place to settle and be forgotten by the universe resumes the burden and the grief he experienced.

Again man, awesome costume...a tad more weathering would be nice on it but so far it's looking great. Great job.

You are right about the weathering. But I am kinda starting the journey, so I will be doing gradually. Wink Thanks for the feedback.

Will be playing Desert Nomad on Aug 24th all day long, and possibly Aug 26th. And will be visiting the RL both, so you will have plenty of chances to meet me. I am always willing to me fellow RL members. Ben

It goes without saying that this costume is hands down one of the coolest things I have ever seen...

that being said..
it also presents us judges with a quandry...

since the only reference of this costume is that it is a statue...
I am not sure about formal status as a desert nomad...

in all likelyhood....it will probably be judged as a Clone Wars Obi-Wan...
I am sure that this is something that the Jedi judges will have to put their heads together on..
