Since I'm close to completing my Commando outfit I thought I'd post a few holo's of it.


Still need to do a few more details and get the correct rifle.


These where taken at two events for the promotion of Star Wars BattleFront buy Lucas Arts and G4 TV.


I put this together in a week to have it ready for the TV shoot about a month ago and then spent a few days making the Hoth style pack for the Media preview in San Francisco two weeks ago.



More info on the game can be found at http://swbattlefront.net/

The cloths are painted with regular spray in a can.


The pants are store bought but I will soon be making them from scratch now that I have them all measured out, I was going to make them the day before my last event but was to tired to spend the day sewing.


The vest and  jacket I made using McCALL's pattern P272 and modifying them to be correct.


The AN-H-15 is scratch built as well since I needed one in a hurry and they are rather expansive and getting harder to find.


I'll see about doing up a tutoral some time this week.

Well if you could find someone willing to be a rebel outfitter it would work.

Lot of work for the person(s) doing it.

And then would they be supplying all the cloth parts?

Shirt, pant, jacket, vest, gaitors, AN-H-15 replica, belts, etc...?

Will other things be included like vest greeblies, comlink, helmet, gloves?



Will the pant's and jacket be pre colored or each one hand painted?

well at first if the trousers and jacket would be avaibale, i assume it would be a lot of work done for us

i never saw a very good camo done, the one you did is very close but i dont know what people of the art would say about the original ones



the AN-H-15 is not too hard to replicate, exept the gum-ears (sorry i dont get the exact words in english), Belgium are making some of them yet.



if he is not able to make all the parts just the main pieces would be helpull because made by looking at the originals (any modification to do) and also because all the people would start on the same base, the final groups would be coherent...



have you a good software and the time to get some DVD screenshots?

Unfortunatly I don't have a DVD player on my computer.

So no screen caps.



I have some pix from the MoM tour if that's what you are refering to.

The outfits are a beige (lt tan) with the camo pattern painted on it.



The ear cups are a rubber.

I am looking into making some with mask making latex, pre colored in black.

I'd prefer to have a real AN-H but they are getting harder to find.

I think there is someone that makes replicas but they are expensive.

i have two real AN-H-15, one i founded i Paris (not too hard to get here) and the other founded and talently modified my Richies Armors





but you have to know that these are real historic pieces, so fragiles too! that why i would prefer replicas, strongers, but i never saw thems...





for the MOM you are refering to, it is the costume saw in the Part Of Star Wars?



if it is i'm afraid that this costume never appear in the movie, but was made for the exibition, the tan coloured fabric is not accurate at all, maybe just the Luke's poncho and han's duster seems to be close to it. the trooper's originals are greens (light green and very light green but less) grey, all in 10cm spots



i'm currently capturing some pics
