Boushh is ready for trooping!

Well, at least I hope she is! She still need to be approved by Nordic Garrisons GML to be able to come with me to Stockholm next weekend.

The helmet is finally done, and the only thing I need to finish now is my staff. Hopefully, it will be done by next weekend, but I haven't prioritised it because it is not needed for approval, and I'm planning to have a wookiee on leash this weekend. ;)

Here are some pics!

New workshop!

We have been working on our new workshop, and except from a few shelves it is done! The room is still the same that we have used before, but we have painted and added some nice workbenches. We are ready for armour party next week! :-D

This is how the room looked like one week ago.

Me with steel brush, goggles and mask.

Ole painting the tricky area.

Measuring, everything have to be correct!


So, what do you think?

Snowtrooper boots

I've done some work on my snowtrooper boots! This is how they turned out after I added the straps. I might redo them though, because I'm not entirely happy about the look. I don't think I'll use the inner sock, the boots look way too thick compared to the ones in the movie.

Star Wars dress

I made a dress yesterday from vintage Star Wars fabric I bought on ebay. It turned out pretty cute, don't you think?

Snowtrooper codpiece

I have been working at my snowtrooper codpiece today, and I think it turned out pretty nice! It's scary to do things the screen accurate way, because on the snowtrooper that means a lot of holes, rivets, seams and other details that you never really notice in the movies. But I hope it is appreciated anyway. :)

Snowtrooper gloves and shoulder armour

Got a pair of Wells Lamont gloves from a good friend the other day! Very nice of him! They are a bit big, but they'll serve me well! Thanks a lot, Ole-W! :D

My shoulder armour, ready for weathering.

I made holes in the armour for sewing it onto the duster.

Snowtrooper handplates ready for weathering

I have drilled the holes in my snowtrooper handplates, now they are ready for weathering!

I have ordered gloves from MC, but I have no clue yet on when they will arrive. Hope they are nice, though!

Boushh helmet ready for primer!

My Boushh helmet is finally ready for primer and paint!

Some parts of the helmet is going to be covered by leather, so I'll have to mask that before I paint. I have sanded the whole helmet so the paint will stick better.

I'll start off with grey primer and then a coat of brown. I think I will drybrush and airbrush the details, because they are too small to make with masking fluid.

This helmet kit has required tons of work, but finally I'm happy with it. Everywhere you see black (apart from fingerprints) I have modified the shape. I have used a lot of milliput! I have also used a whole package of white milliput, but that doesn't show as well as the black one. ;)

Got my snowtrooper parts!

I got my snowtrooper parts a few months ago, and I forgot to blog about it!

First off, my new mukluks, a size smaller than my old ones. Traded with Ole-Wilhelm, and these fit me even better then my old ones. Just need to add the straps!

My pants, sewn from soft cotton twill. So nice to wear!

The wool fabric for my duster.

Chest and codpiece from DL.

Helmet, arm pieces, handplates, knees, shoulders and ab-plate from DL.

My backpack, almost finished with painting. Just needs a little cleanup.

Cotton strapping I found on a bag from Panduro. I just bought the bag for the strapping. Maybe I can sew pouches of it?

Aurra Sing's holster

I got some of the parts for Aurra's holster in the mail today! The buckles fit the belt really nice! The leather belts are all from H&M, though they are sadly not the same colour. I will buy some leather dye to get them the same colour, and I also need to match them to the leather I'll use for the main holster pieces.

Boushh helmet and armour progress

I have done some progress on Boushh, and hope to have the costume ready soon!

I have done most of the helmet building now, only missing the greebles and paint. The helmet was hard to build, with lots of parts not fitting at all. A lot of bondo was needed to make things look good! Still lots to do to make it look perfect!

The armour is now almost done, and has got a coat of primer. The tanks are almost done too, and I'll start work on the attachment piece soon.
