So that means costume overhaul!!!!

Mold repair work!

Never got these uploaded for some reason..

Leia bikini- extra silicon added, also fibreglass filler to help prevent warping. Still some repair work to go to rebuild one of the back straps that got flattened.

Leia collar, extra silicon added.


In both cases in order to remove the need for a rigid jacket.


Shae helmet support:

Still needs tidying but the silicon is now less prone to warping and now I can redo the keys and rigid support.

Many thanks to Matt and Kristy for their help and hosting and taking many awesome images (I think all but one linked here) 🙂

And so then in character I got to Shoot All The Things! Bounty Hunters, can’t take them anywhere:

For Balmorra and Belsavis! That is the famous Roxy. So glorious.

And met amazing people:

And stormed the Rebels:

Took over the Imperials:

Took a taxi, er, speeder to Endor:

And eventually was caught and repackaged:

More people shared on Facebook but it is being a pain to deal with but I have been able to get a few shared to my page:

though they are intersperced with a few rants about the flights back and other projects 🙂

I still need to harvest in progress photos from a few cameras so will try and do a progress update.

I have just bought more material to redo the chest and back plates, saving up for replacement bodysuit too 🙂

Oh and in case you didn’t notice, it’s pretty fun in Shae’s shoes. So much fun. Except in the Marriott elevators.

Recharge and reload! All my Bounty Hunter homies will recognise this! (but we are apparently all left handed in game. Or ambidextrous).

Today I get to glue and hammer snaps into my armour and strapping. Kind of terrified. I may also get sanding and painting the very last of my props.

Above is my costume laid out, minus pressure hose, bodysuit, boots, gloves, balaclava. The light up parts are actually reflective tape as I am unwilling to travel with eletronics other than obviously related.

There may be a photo or two to update between now and flying out but probably not.
