Yeah, the helmet just doesn't have the richness that the velvet robes have. It would look much better painted darker.

DC was amazing.

I am going to bring the helmet to an autobody shop and have it painted. Do you think a Ford engine blue non-metallic would be more correct?

Does anyone have paint codes?

If you can, I'd bring the robe with you to the autobody place and see what they have that would best match it. Obviously, non-metallic -but I'm not familiar with the Ford Blue enough to say for sure.

Thanks.

I actually brought the helmet and the robe and the picture from this website and the visual dictionary to an autobody shop. I hope it turns out well!

The 6th of December I actually got to see one of these in person at the Star Wars in Concert Chicago event! I still haven't gotten pictures posted up, but I'll try to do that soon. The blue wasn't as "dusty" as I was imagining. It was good to see one in person.

Well, thanks to our tax return, we finally were able to order the fabric and helmet for my husband's Senate Guard. We'll be making both versions (Ep 1&2 and Ep 3). We've been planning this for over two years, so it's exciting that it's actually starting to come together!! Smile

I don't have anything yet, but the main link to my blog is: http://costumesandartwork.blogspot.com/ When I do have something done on the Senate Guard, I'll be sure to post the link here.

The helmet came yesterday, but I haven't had a chance to post pictures yet. We're a little disappointed. We ordered a spare spine and it wasn't shipped. The "lens" is just a thin blue piece of plastic, and the helmet (& one spine we did get) are crooked. I hope once we polish things up and paint it, it won't be so obvious...and we need to come up with a different lens. The Ep 3 lenses were black like sunglasses, not blue. Confused
