Will these do?





Their kind of fuzzy, but at least I have them. Took a walk during the Star Wars in Concert (it was my second time) and was able to slip behind the costume case and snaps pics from the rear. Lighting was crap, but something's better than nothing. Very Happy

Phyllis, yes. I'm having to supply my own leather for it though, so I can get a color that matches the boots I'm getting.

Or actually, talking to Mosi, he might just go buy the leather himself so that way he has it for other potential pilots.

So I discovered these photos of Padme's Episode 2 Naboo pilot costume that I apparently took during SW in Concert, and it's got SO much detail on the boots. I wish I could have gotten a look at the back of the boots though.



Kathy took some too:

I have finished a boatload of projects for some of the members of my Base...
and starting with the New Year I plan to utilize what free time I have to working on the Naboo Pilot and no distractions...lol...

I did purchase leather...for not only the boots..but the harness as well
and..
am going to start looking for boots with the after-Christmas sales as I do need to stick to a budget.

I pretty much have the belt and helmet done...
not much...but it is something...

I hope so! I had you in mind when I bought the leather last weekend. I can probably attempt a stab at a boot overlay for these, but they would be the same leather as the shins, and not the suede look from the originals. If you and Rachel are cool with that, then I'll see what I can do.

AWESOME!

I am not a very good leatherworker...so have been dreading the boots...
I think I can probably do an ok job on the chest harness...
but was afraid of those boots.

I am guessing that if you just leave the leather in its natural state...
then
I will try to dye the shin piece to match the boots that I find as best as possible. I have about 5 different brown leather dyes ...so I am sure I can come up with something.

I will look for suede...but ...I don't know exactly what I will actually be able to find in a low heel and round toed boot.

The leather I found for the shin piece is actually pretty darn close to the original color so you shouldn't need to do a dye job. I've been waiting about 2 months for Tandy to get the right shade in stock (locally).

gotcha...
I thought it might have started out as plain undyed veg tan leather

my job will then be to find boots to match the leather...
or try dying the boots to match the shin pieces..
