Seems like it has been a while since I've been on here. The reason is I have been putting almost all of my energy into building this costume for Halloween. I finally finished it for now. I've got a lot of upgrades before I'll be ready for 501st as most of it is scratchbuilt. I've not been on this site in a while and I have completely stopped buying toys as all my funds are going into this suit for the next two years as I upgrade. Here are a few pictures.

That is nice man!!! I would love to make a costume. So how did you get all of the parts, just buying stuff on ebay?

Thanks very much DJ.

Adam I got the helmet and the flight suit from members on The Dented Helmet site. The vest was made by my wife's aunt. Everything else other than the toy Hasbro blaster was made by me from scratch. There are a lot of templates on TDH site. I made my armor mostly from plastic trash can except backplate. It is cardboard and resin. The cape was old tarp. I scratch built gauntlets and jetpack from cardboard, tape, resin and hot glue. The ammo pouches are cardboard and resin as well. The girth belt was made from rope I weaved and wookie braids from synthetic hair. My shin tools are scratch built from plastic, wood, pens,hot glue and tape. I even made my boots from old converse type shoes. I was rushing to complete it for Halloween but I'm just getting started. Thanks again.

Oh, almost forgot. . . I should mention that I would steer clear of most stuff costume related
On E-bay. There are better items and sometimes cheaper from members on TDH than E-bay. There are a few members that sell on eBay but unless you know who they are you might be left holding the bag with a bunch of junk items or nothing at all.

With that said though; this doesn't mean that scammers don't make there way onto TDH but your chances of not getting scammed are greatly improved by buying stuff from reputable members on TDH.
