    I found a woman who makes an incredible latex headpiece. Shaak Ti has been on my radar for a while now...

    I'm sure you can find a way to work Worbla into the costume.

    This is been a heck of a week for armor work.
    Went back to the drawing board after seeing some other designs. I can say I've seen some crazy stuff, but today I saw a guy build a suit with a pic pipe. That blew my mind.

    Found some interesting things to build some gauntlets with. With any luck I will have them done tomorrow. Sewing will be started tomorrow as well.

    At the end of this I may need a vacation to recoup from my vacation....

    Down to the wire...want to make sure I don't have a "wardrobe malfunction" like I did last year. Someone suggested thicker brass safety pins for my Jedi belt. Would this be sufficient, or would I need something stronger?

    True...saw an ad on TV recently for Gorilla Tape (same people that make Gorilla Glue). May pick up a roll of that this week!

    Gorilla duct tape is awesome- that's what I made my Wonder Woman corset from. It will leave residue on your fabric so be prepared!

    Duct tape did the trick. Thanks Dave! :D

    On a lighter note, Qui-Gon is becoming more of a reality! I stopped by George and Co. on my lunch break this afternoon. I explained what I was looking for, and had pictures pulled up of Qui-Gon within seconds. It turned out they did not have anything that looked remotely similar, so she looked up samurai warrior wigs, and lo and behold, we found this:

    http://www.maxwigs.com/ponytail-warrior-by-sepia-costume-wigs-p8382.html

    It was listed as out of stock on the website she had up, so she made a call, and luckily they still had FOUR left in the warehouse. I should hopefully be getting it next week!

    Oh snaps. How I dislike installing you. But have discovered you are necessary.

    Snaps are a pain, but they will make life so much easier

    Snaps will be the next thing for my belt, along with velcro, JUST to be sure.

    Since Titan is somewhat complete, I am planning on starting mando 2 "Astraeus" once I get back into town. After that I have to get back to Grievous.......I only have 363 days to get him walking again.......

    It gives it a bit more surface area to grab on to - shiny or smooth surfaces can make adhesives peel up easy in my experience :)

    If you need help latch hooking the fur we could get together for some beers and everyone grabs a piece and hooks!
