Pretty much done

Wow haven’t had a chance to post cause of all the work I put into Comic Con lately.

But I pretty much finished my Sandtrooper build. Yes, I know, I’ll never be DONE, but it was close enough to be able to suit up for the con.

As I was completing the bucket, I brought it to work. Actually ended up wearing it to a meeting.

I’m actually quite proud of how it turned out. I still need to add the fans, but damn that’s one sexy dude!

That night, I got home and tried to put on the armour… WOW that’s hard to do on your own.

I started with the garter and thighs, then realized I could put the boots on, so I unsnapped them and lowered the thighs, only to topple over. I then put on the ab plate and the back parts. Once these were on, I could bend to put the shins on. Then the fight with the shoulders started. Finally once everything was done, the chest popped off and well… I got frustrated. But it was good to give me an idea.

But I ended up looking ok for the con.

All in all it was fun. I still have some work to do on the thighs, fix the shins that I ended up breaking. Getting better pouches and then the work on the gun and backpack.
