Hello All and Greetings from Dagobah Base!
From this topic I will be showing progress photos of my Endor Trooper. I hope to begin in the next few weeks on assembling soft parts and from there make the helmet!

Welcome Chris!

Dig your heels in and start reading, the tutorials are great here. Also, check out the Endor bunker. PM me for access, and I can get you in there, where all the files are with extensive tutorials, etc.
make sure to check out everyones WIP threads, and the Costume Judges comments to them. I learned a lot by reading that feedback.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys and gals!

I just ordered my pants and shirt tonight, so hoping to get those in the mail soon.

Let the gathering begin!

Shirt and pants are in! Ordering the pouches and belt tomorrow! Also does anyone have a link to a good duster that I could use for the trooper?

I did the capped sleeved vest with the hooded snowjacket so I don't really know what others have used...

one thing I can tell you...
is make sure you buy 100% cotton...

Someone from our Base purchased a cotton/polyester blend and it did not take the camo paint well.

and..
the longer the better...
see if you can find what is called "butchers coats"

they are longer...

Here is the one I bought for my commando. The color needed is wheat.

check the fiber content...that is just about 100% polyester...

not a good idea...
look for cotton...

and if you can't find a coat in tan/wheat....
and have to buy white...
you will have to dye it first.

I had to dye my hooded snowjacket first also....then camo painted it...

Belt and pouches ordered should have them soon!

Also, after much thought, will go for the jacket look for the Endor Smile
