Taping and painting the armor.


Touching up with a small brush (never mind the brown small bottle of paint. I didn't use that, but grabbed it in case it was a close match.)

To correct my painting and taping, I sprayed a bit of extra paint in a plastic shot glass and used a small brush to correct the small spots where the paint either went over where I wanted it to, or not far enough.

Looks great. You did a better job masking off than I did. I just covered my mistakes with weathering. LOL. I love the hair suit too so far. Looking forward to seeing the top half done!

If anyone needs any pieces like Ammo boxes, armor, wookiee arm shild let me know. I don't have anything on stock as I just dont have the room, but depending on what you need I can have most things done in a week or two. You can PM me for cost details.

Thanks mate! You did a wicked job on the armor. It is killer! Thanks so much!

AND I definitely recommend to anyone looking for armor, ammo boxes, etc. to hit Jason up! Stellar job on this. He even hand wrote very easy to follow instructions. I'm loving the look and feel of all of the parts. Can't wait to complete the project and show the photos.

Next up - the mask is about to be sent this way from Ryan!
Woohoo!!!

Thanks everyone!
Ryan made the mask. He does take commissions. Here's his Facebook site:
https://www.facebook.com/Chewiechanga
He is Zaxmon on here (Rebel Legion)

Updates for today:
The shirt is finished up the back. All I've got left is the left arm. So, blending and hooking is all that's left for the top.


Glued the armor plates this morning.

My Tarfful mask arrived today courtesy of Ryan! Excellent job mate!
Here's my first try on. I just need to put a little bit of padding in the top to get my eyes level.


Here's the mask on the mannequin I'm using to help with my latch hooking.

It's so incredibly lifelike. My wife was touching the nose and lips and freaking out at how cool it is!
