3 Hole Belt-Complete, that was the easy part...
Vest-complete
Shirt-CE Shirt, Complete.
Pants-wainting on shipping.

Update on the costume…
I just got my CE ROTJ pants in the mail the other day. They required a little altering, so I had to turn them into the seamstress. I should have them back on the 28th of this month. Once I get the pants back, Ta Da!! 100% finished!!!
Well maybe 99.8% finished, I am using the MR ESB Blaster and 911costumes boots until I get my custom ROTJ blaster finished and the CABoots ordered. Both items will suffice for formal approval for now though.
Right now the costume consists of:
ROTJ Shirt - CE
ROTJ Pants – CE
ROTJ Vest – (Modified) Costume Base
3-Hole Belt - Belt Outlet
Boots – 911costumes
ROTJ Holster – MP Productions
ROTJ Belt Tools – CE
Droid Caller – Evolutiontoysshop
Blaster – MR ESB Han Blaster
I have some pics with my “non-formal” pants, but I think I will wait to post pics until my Formal App. is submitted.

That's cool. More Endor Hans. Always thought it was more interesting then ESB costume plus I love ROTJ

Yeah mine has been on hold for a very long time, just waited to get a blaster in order to register it complete, then while this was going on the standards changed. Now I have to get the pants made with the right seams and all. Blaster will be here soon, that took for ever, then I have to see if my friend can figure out the pants. If anyone can help with a pattern please PM me.

If you have the ability to sew (Which I don't) I would recomend Frankenstien-ing a Civil War calvary pants pattern (for the riding seam and leg taper) with a regular slacks pattern ( for the button, zipper, and belt loops.). Then you just need to find of make bloodstripes, which I think somepeople on here now make with embroidery machines. That is very awesome because the fabric will match the pants fabric. Lastly, which i am sure you all know, Bob is a great source!!! Anything he has on the subject could help. My 2 cents! Good luck on the ROTJ Han and as i work on the Han blaster, I will probably post updates here and on the RPF.
