    Just an FYI for anyone lurking or thinking about making a cotume, we have several in the works around the TFF and it would not be hard to make duplicates which include a tusken raider, tie pilot, jedi, at at driver, etc

    What do you need done exactly? I have a sewing machine and some skills (ok, quite limited) but whatever I can do to help your welcome to.

    If Phil goes that route put him ahead of me with your mother-in-law.

    [face_praying] Ask her to come to a meeting so we can meet her formally so we have a name and not "Chris' mother-in-law" or Amber's mom"[face_idea]

    Tusken Raider progress!

    Tusken progress!


    Here are a few pics from my tusken, I finished another helmet, and Im finishing two more! The club end is made out of a couch foot, and Im carving the spikes out with a dremel. I made a mold of a teardrop glass, and then a resin cast, then Ill trim it and put it on the finished couch foot, and make a mold of the whole thing, for one solid piece that can be attatched to a shower safety bar.

    the bandolier is an actual 1909 british enfield bandolier, it is old brittle and falling apart so i riveted it onto a new leather strap and then painted it to seal the cracks, and hopefully give it more life.

    Black Matte Spray Paint from Walmart - .94
    Tomato paste can that was around house - mostly free
    Sports Water Bottle [cut most of the body away] - free

    Finished product:

    Not great but sufficient for my little pesky Jawa's needs. ;)

    TK-2970 bought something from him. Unless Dustin is sewing purses together I don't think he can help me :p ;) Actually, once I make my bracelets we are going to try to have a resin cast made of them.
