Progress report 19.02.09

Now that I've recieved my body suit, I have started getting things stuck to my body. I've added straps to my chestbox to make it sit, and I've added straps to the shins.
Now I need to make that shoulder armour sit tight and not go everywhere and rise up on me. But that will have to wait for when I get my shoulder bells back.

Here I am in most of my glory.

Darth Vader leather suit has arrived

YES! My tailor made leather suit has arrived today.
It's hot as summer on Tatooine, but sweet oh so sweet.
Here you can see me sporting it.

The mesh in the back is for ventilation purposes. I can't even imagine how Dave Prowse felt during the shoots for Star Wars.

Missing for a complete vader now is the belt, cape and robe.
Belt is on it's way.

Dark Lord progress

Been a long time since I updated this blog.
And as time has passed, I've gone and gotten a few more parts for my Vader.
What I've got so far, as you can see from the picture, is this:
Chestarmour (Shoulder bells are returned to be repainted ANH style.)
Chestbox (Need to work on the strapping)
Shinarmour (Need to work on the strapping)
MR Lightsaber

The leather bodysuit is coming any day now, so I'm really excited. Made in Argentina after my measurements. Should be a perfect fit.

I have also several pieces for my belt in order. I'll make all the electronics myself. Exciting.

Going Sith

I got a fantastic christmaspresent this year. A great starter kit for my new costume:

The kit contained: Helmet, Gloves, Cod-piece and a sound board.
Still å lot to get, but this is sooo cool. A really nice helmet.
Fiber-glass, but still light. A fan inside to keep cool.
Just look at this beauty:
