Okay, BIG update!!

Early this week I put down the base layer of fabric. This will help cover the back of my head.



The was a test fitting. I used a scrape piece of fabric for a wrap around my neck.





Last night I cut my strips of duck cloth and washed them.



After wash and dry! What a mess!! Shocked Shocked Laughing
I spent the night watching ANH and cutting the mess up.




Today I started placing the strips on the mask. Oh, it was worth the trouble!! Very Happy








Still need to add a few more strips on the back and then weather. Sooo happy with this! Very Happy Very Happy

Bought some Monk's cloth today. Hopefully the robes will start next weekend.

Overall it looks good. There are places around the eye stalks though that stick out to my eye.

Yeah, I took some paint to those spots. Wink

I'm waiting for the weathering to dry to get some good pics. Very Happy

Added the last pieces on the back today, then weathered. I started out with a water acrylic base, but once dried it still didn't looked weathered enough for me. So, I went with the good old dry brush method. Worked MUCH better!! Very Happy Very Happy



Best pic!




I'm glad you guys like it! I'm surprise there aren't more Tuskens, the head was one of the easiest (and most fun) costumes I've done. Very Happy Very Happy


Head should be finished! Now, time to start the robes and hopefully the gaffi stick!! Smile

Man that looks great. The weathering really does the trick.
I've got to agree, the mask has been alot of fun to put together.

It's been a busy few weeks but here is an update on my Tusken progress.

I worked on the respirator most of last week.

Items used:

Tomato paste can
2 $1 pots found at Traget's dollar section
2 metals bits from plumbing section at Lowes.
1/4" Alumniun rod
Piece of leather




NOTE: Milk caps were not used!



The pots were tricky to cut down. The pastic they were made from isn't the best.

After prime and paint the finished piece. (Still need to weather leather. Wink )



A quick test with the head!



I started on the gaffi stick today. I'll wait and post pics of that progress soon. I have the inner robe cut, just need to start sewing. Hopefully that will come later this week! Very Happy

Here's a look at my Gaffi stick progress.









Plan to work on the fins and funnel tomorrow. If the weather works with me I hope to prime and paint on Sunday. Very Happy

The first thing I did this weekend was cut out the fins. After thinking on what to use I remembered I had some extra 10 gal totes with no lids. I had thought about making a small Gonk droid but if I am do that the droid must be life size. Very Happy

Anyway, I used the tote and measured out the fins, then cut them out.







I like these because they a strong, not sharp, and not flimsy.

The idea was to make this into two parts for easy storage. Here are the fins in place and how the stick divides up.



Today, I had a great day so I primed and painted. I still have to added some weathering but here is my complete Gaffi Stick!!








Now, on to the robes, arm and leg wraps. I am also looking at doing a rifle as well.

This is so much fun!

With the long weekend I decided to work on the arm wraps. I had been playing with an idea and I think it worked out pretty good.

First I took an old long sleeve shirt and cut the sleeves off. I then took my gloves and attached them to the cuff of the sleeve with a quick stitch.






I stitch the first part of the wrap to the glove to help hold it on when pulling the sleeve on and off.



I then just worked up my arm with hot glue and placing the wrap. Now I glued the wrapping to itself and just tacked a small bit to the real sleeve ever so often. When more strips were needed I stitched them together for a better hold. The hot glue may not be the best way to go with this but I figured the arm wraps would have a little more "up keep" after so many troops. Wink



I finished this morning with the left arm.



Here it is on. (Not the best picture. Laughing )



Hope to start the right arm sometime today. If all goes well I might get my inner robe sewn today as well. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Weathering is coming once the other arm is finished.

Sorry for the lack of updates, its been a busy week or so.

Anyway here a some pics to enjoy! Very Happy

First my inner robe test. Still need to trim the bottom a bit but hopefully I can start weathering this week.






Next is the boots. I started wrapping them last weekend and this weekend at a prop I weathered them.

Started with a black base dry brush. Heavy around the bottoms of course.




After the black I used a dark brown and then I used a lighter brown to create a dirty sand effect. This pic shows before and after.




And the finished boots!!!




Here are the paints I used.




Now, to weather the arms. Very Happy
