Looks like you're off to a great start! Claudio's stuff is pretty flawless, once you have the patience to wait for it!

Are those sith eyes? Lose them for your RL photos and don't forget the scar. Beyond that, now you just play the waiting game for the boots. But looks fantastic to this point.

Thanks

Yeah they are sith eyes and yes i'll be leaving them out for RL photos (I forgot to leave the pic out, too used to posting on 501st forums). I have the stuff for the scar but just testing out different techniques to get the best look.

I've been waiting a while already for the boots, ordered them in late april/ early may hopefully they will come soon.

Great start! I ordered my Boots from JDOS in February and they arrived Early this Month... Daniel seems to have quite a lot on his plate but he'll get to it as soon as he can. Believe me the wait is really worth it!

By the way, how is the custom props belt? I'm planning on buying my obi belt from them and i'd love some feedback on yours!

Yeah I've heard they are worth the wait, just a little sad i'll miss the first troop in my home town ah well.

The belts are really well made (in my opinion). I got the functional buckle version, it's a little tricky to put on sometimes (with everything on it). I'll post some better pics if you want.

It looking really good Aiden! you have gone to the right Places for Anakin costume so no problem there.

For the scar, use Rigid Collodion, with a red liner pen that creates a really effect for the scar.

And just a little note, for the Pants try and use a slightly lighter brown, because the Outer tunic is a very dark brown in contrast with the Pants.
(The best colour of the pants is Mahogany Brown)

Do you have a Leather Pouch?

Shoot! I just took a closer look on the fabric for your outer tunic.
it looks like it's knittet? it looks like knittet jersey or something like that

I'm not sure if they will approve that.

1. Textured deep to dark brown outer tunic, mid-thigh length, with shoulder tucks. Outer sleeve may end / tucks in at the glove on right side.

I know it says textured, but I think they mean a wavy texture like crinkle cotton or gaze, not knittet. at least until some one track down a fabric with a waffle like pattern/texture.

Being approved by the 501st doesn't garenty you approval in rl because of the different methods they look at and approve costumes:-)
