For those that were able to access my wip threads on the 501st forums...

THANK THE MAKER BECAUSE THE PROBLEMATIC THIGH IS NO LONGER PROBLEMATIC!!! However, there is a gap in the middle and I'm gonna try and fix that but anyway, I tried the thighs and the shins on and the pictures show that. Now I know that these will not look so droopy when i actually put foaming and a snap system on these pieces, and I still need to do the knees and velcro shim the back. I seriously cannot wait to bondo these pieces up, but I'm not out of the gluing stage yet.

Note: I plan to sand out the roughed up bits of all of the armor, especially the shins so stay tuned for pictures of hopefully smoothed out armor.

Today i just wanted to try all the pieces on to see how it looked. All i can say is i need some foam padding and some strapping systems. Overall i feel like a bada**. Cant wait to get trooping! I talked with FOO for a bit and it looks like I'll be restarting the biceps, which is fine. I'm also gonna cut out shims for the shins, cut out triangles for the knees, put the chest together, and cut out the bits of the shoulders.

Sorry for the lack of activity, life hit me like a train once again. I've kind of realized that this project has been frustrating to figure out, and with college coming up it makes me more upset that I might not be able to work on it for two years. In fact, me and my mom were considering paying someone to finish it but I had a conversation with FOO that made me change my mind (Thanks FOO!!!) . I have today and tomorrow to work on the costume, so I attempted to start today but my devcon that i was gonna use dried out.... I was about ready to just give up on the project entirely, but apparently my mom knows someone that may be able to help with it. Hope it goes well. I just really want to get out there and troop because what you guys do is heartwarming and altruistic, and I want to be apart of that.
