Booth is built

So we spent the weekend working on the booth and it is now complete. But damn am I ever sore today.

Only thing left is painting.

Friday night, Luc and I went to get the wood needed for building the Tatooine wall.

Got Wood?

We then spent all of Saturday working on the walls and got them completed. We also started the door. However, we noticed that we were missing some of the brackets we believed we had built for the jail. So he had to go back and get more wood.

While I cut the 2X4s, I had Chris L working on the crates that will be used for set decorations. They look awesome. Hank will be making stencils to spray on labels on them.

So that’s what it looks like inside Mod Eisley? No, this is just the back of the wall panels. They’re built so solid!

Richard is admiring the construction. Once everything was built, he, luc, RobP and myself assembled the wall with the tarps underneath so we could start painting

Here we have the door being made. This is to represent the door that R2 and 3P0 hid in, while the Sandtroopers are looking for them. We re-used the frame of the door from last year, and I cut up a layer of MDF, that is laied on top of an other to add the depth of the texture.

Since these need to be stored flat, we couldn’t go with the texture I originally wanted, as it would just flake off. So Corey went and got several earth tones. Here we’re painting the base, which is a cork like color. Once this is dry, we’re going to sponge on darker and lighter tones on it. The braces at the top and bottom will be painted brown, to simulate wooden beams. And the door will be a nice orange color.

John painted an other stand up for us, this time of Darth Maul, considering Ray Park will be in attendance. Also ironic, since John is our local Darth Maul too 🙂

Matt started painting an other mural, this one of Hoth.

And Hank started Coruscant. These are in the back of the lockers and will accompany Bespin and Tatooine.

Now that this is all done, I need to finish my costume. Most of it is done now, and I have shims installed on the sides to cover my big ass gut… But I still need to finish the thighs and weather everything… And of course… this weekend is full so I have to get it done by Friday if I want to use it on Saturday at Four Wishes
