I am getting ready to rivet the boxes to the bandloier but before I do I was wondering.....do you weather the boxes in any way prior to fastening them? They are almost too clean I am thinking or do they just kind of dirty over time from wear?

I didn't, really. If you look at the reference pictures you'll see that Chewie's bandolier is usually in pretty good shape. It's the satchel itself that is weathered.

Can people share some pics (or provide a link) to some pics of how you padded the inside for fitting?

Nothing special about it. This was about two years ago before I'd even worn it. I just bought one of the large foam pads from JoAnne's and cut it up and added where I felt it was needed. It's not in the photo but I had a large square pad that I kept loose and inserted up in the top. This is an EvilChimp mask.Disregard the clamps as they were there to help secure the helmet connectors.

Welcome!! I personally don’t recommend straightening hair. In my experience, it makes the Hair overly slick and shiny. I use Rastafri brand as it’s straighter to begin with. p!


So literally right out of the package? No treatment at all to the hair?

So not going to make Halloween but not that far off. Will try to take some pics this weekend. Top is almost completely done. Left leg is almost done to the gray and right leg to the knee. Real life got int the way but should get some time to work on it.

All I did was take straight out of the package and blend with the hackle I made. It lays very nicely. Almost too nicely as I always thought Chewie had some matted hair.lol
