This is one of the pics I submitted, I took a bunch and realized half way through submitting them that I had forgotten to take side shots so had to get dressed again and decided to reshoot against this background versus a sheet hanging in the basement!

Well I bit the bullet and I submitted my pics this weekend, hopefully I'll hear some good news and not have too much to change/modify.


Good luck!

Well I got my email today saying I was not accepted, luckily the changes seem to be addressable without too much effort. Does anyone know where to get an approvable grey, ribbed chest box hose? Apparently the hose I have is too dark. Although I did get this from a known supplier on the boards so I'm surprised.TIA

You can paint the one you have, or some hardware stores have dishwasher return hoses that may work for you.

I found this on Amazon but I'm not sure if it the diameter is right, it seems like it might be thinner but for $9 it might not be worth a shot.

Try your local hardware stores. That way you can look at it and decide.

I managed to find the proper hose at the hardware store so I took off the elbow and magnet attachment off of my current hose and used E6000 to glue the new hose on. I also took the back off of my chest box and threaded the new hose into the box. I didn't use anything to attach it but I'm going to use a wall anchor inside of the tube or a zip tie or something else to keep it from pulling back through. I'm also in the process of making a new Comm Pad, I'm having most of it 3D printed and then I'm adding actual working buttons to it with a sound card that is hidden behind it that will play sounds and voices from the original trilogy. My favorite is just a bunch of Wookie growls that if I time right sounds like I'm talking with Chewie and he's answering me. Smile

I'm hoping to cut the excess strap on my chest box tonight and reattach everything and take pics tonight or tomorrow and get that back to the judges. Fingers crossed.

I had some fun with the kids taking more pics for my submission but unfortunately we got carried away and didn't realize that my Flak vest buckle had come undone and one of my pant legs came untucked from my boot so I had to limit my photo album to just the ones that were relevant.

New chest box hose, shorter strap on the box, readjusted flak vest for the shoot as well as tucked my sleeve in better so that my Comm Pad pocket is more aligned with the glove...
