Not completely satisfied with the 3D-printed macros I bought, so I’ve started to draw up my own. Here’s a glimpse of the WIP:

I should add that I’ve made these drawings by taking calliper measurements from the real parts that I have, such as the Eumig and the Seagull and B&H knobs.

But for the parts that I have only resin casts from other suppliers, e.g. the Kalimar lenses, lens plate and transition box, I have just eyeballed the measurements from photos to avoid “recasting” other people’s hard work. These latter measurements are far from accurate.

Have just upgraded my linen puttees to film-accurate suede ones.

Here are a few shots without the full costume:

With the upgrade of the puttees, I think I’m finally ready to submit this costume.

Hi, thanks for the overview of your build and congratulations on your approval. I am currently working on the same costume for future submission and was wondering (1) the name of the Etsy shop where you purchased your belt and (2) the pattern you used for the tunic or roughly how you made it? I've researched the latter a lot but no one seems to agree on the best way to make the tunic. Thank you so much. Smile

Thank you, thegravenwood and welcome aboard! It’s an awesome costume to do, and with so many optional extras.

The etsy shop for the utility belt rig was FanFictionProps – all one word. Michael, who runs it, is very helpful and open to suggestions on how to make it more screen-accurate.

I bought the tunic also from etsy. The shop was PeeledBananasToGo – also one word! Margarita there is a wonderfully warm and helpful human being. But if you’re looking to make your own, check out Psab Keel’s threads on this forum and PM him. He’s done a ton of research and is also generous with advice.

If you need any help finding decent boots or proper suede puttees (leg wraps – I found these thehardest of all to locate apart from a pair of Kalimar Six Sixty lenses but that’s another story) or a decent wig, I can point you in those directions too.

Found the perfect blue milk. Korean water slime.

It will slop around the cup without spilling out.:

I would definitely be interested in any assistance in wigs and the puttees. Smile

Congratulations on your approval! Do you have any tips on making/ purchasing the grappling hook belt pouch for your Death Star Luke Stormtrooper belt? I have the hook, I'm just looking to make/ purchase the belt box with the retractable cable.

Thanks so much!

Psab
