So I am only missing the belt boxes and I will have this costume ready for submission! What do you all think and do you see anything besides the boxes I need to look at? Thanks for all the help and support so far! Cool

Very nice!

As one of the Judges for this costume...you are so far passing with flying colors. The only nit I would pick at this time is that the yellow stripe on the pants seems a bit narrow...



With the belt boxes...just make sure they are cream colored and not white when you find some...
if they come white...just give them a cream colored paint job...


Looking awesome!

OK I am getting the boxes painted and the stripes wider. My question is which color is best for approval? Please if you have time take a look and let me know so I get it right the first time. Here is the link I was sent to use from the painter.

Looks like your mask is from same mold than mine.
Do you need reference pics for belt-boxes? I might have some.

I think I am good on the boxes as I have some being built by one member here doing close to the 6th run on aluminum boxes. Now I may have only gotten two cream colored in the right way. IS just two ok? do I need more? What would you all suggest?

It is a series of what looks to be plastic boxes as they have rounded corners:



I am not sure where others got their belts...
you might want to go into the members area and pm a few of the Acbar's and ask where they obtained their belts/boxes
