Finally decided to build an X-Wing pilot before Celebration VII, and waiting for parts to come through. Pics posted as parts come in.

Here is my checklist: Pictured are those items received.

Helmet: Darth Hair- used vynl stickers & small stripes

Fight Suit: Hammerheart44, have to mod- add 2 lower pants pockets from eBay


Vest: Custom Props (ordered from Claudio, slight mod- shorten the length by 1" from the bottom ribs)



Chestbox: DroidWelder


Shin Flare (Elvis Trooper Flares)


[b]Harness & Belt
: Wampawear


Gloves: Wampawear


Com-pad: Imperial Targworx Pangalactic


Boots: got to cut the straps.


Shoulder memory sticks: Elvis Trooper


Belt Flares: custom made from metel screws


Shin Flares: custom made cut from a broomstick


Holster: from bmlt1138


DL44 : Denix w/ custom parts f/ RPF, a little heavy for the holster. Have to add snaps to the holster to keep it from swinging when walking.



Gun Belt and Buckle: custom made from eBay


As always, open to suggestions, recommendations, and comments about the build.

You got that together fast! I didn't get to see you in person at Celebration though. Maybe in the distance leaving the RL main group photo. We were trying to find you and Mark for the Base group photo but it was hard to gather everyone!

The Claudio vest shoulder straps are too long and needs to be sewn shorter and add flaps for the flightsuit. This project is work in progress but slowly. Too many projects, not enough time.

Ok, here is my photobucket of finished X-Wing costume (my apologies for the pics- running back and forth with my camera on timer...) ready for submission photos: Let me know if I need to retake the photos

OK, finally re-submitted my pilot pictures after a year. Many Ewoks are preying for me...otherwise, I think I need to work on a Jedi outfit.
