Here is my build, finally.

http://s1208.photobucket.com/user/dvade ... t=3&page=1 The first 6 pic's should show up.

* I have all the parts. Missing in the pic's is the belt saber hook which is in my fix it box. I have 2 light sabers. I have not started putting together my sound/breathing yet, but I have all the equipment for it.



Pieces:
Body suit from Argentina 3 piece

COD from AP

Belt leather from Argentina 2 inches

Saber hook from Ace replicas

boots Motorcycle Chippewa's

Chin guards from ??

Helmet from Michael (reduced size)

Armor from Michael (reduced size)

Caps from ?? Artisian props ???

Cape chain from Argentina

Flat foot I am 5'7 1/2"....in costume I am 6'3'.

Thanks to all who have helped a female do this project! I am determined to finish it!!

Looking good Andrea. 6'3"? How did you manage to get that much more height? Nice.

I installed inserts inside of the boots. I also was approved on the SLD with the inch on the outside. Actually my goofup. Upon my second try-on this past weekend, I was re-measured and it came to 6'2". But hey, its not really the height, its how well the costume is done and other things. So I can do a birthday party......(LOL) :roll2:

You might want to talk with Curtis Collins about what he did to his vader heals. I cannot believe how much height he gained since the last time we vadered together. All in all, he added 6 inches to his boot height. Really looked good.

Update: (as some have recently wondered) I have re-sent in pic's to the leader of the SLD and......all I have left is the spacing for the chest box, the collar issue and attaching the saber hook. Then I should be sending in my approval pic's back to the SLD.

Then, (as I don't need this for the pictures)........I need SOUND for trooping! I will figure something out. :blink:
