how would I go about making a good General Hux uniform?
Does anywhere sell first order patches and whatnot?
People generally wont answer because you started a whole thread for no particular reason when there are already threads for asking questions like this (for example >>8806851), and you haven't contributed anything yourself. Ask in the help threads about stuff like this and people will be more responsive
You have to learn how to tailor to make that look anything like the movie version, so the first step, assuming you already know how to sew, is to buy a good book on tailoring and learn about the guts of a suit and techniques. A lot of cosplayers make their suits and coats like shirts. Don't do this.
This might help. She hand made Kylo Ren's outfit and is 501st approved
And here is what is needed if you wanted to go full screen accurate
>Dawn Bright watched about 100 interviews with actor Adam Driver to help inform her Kylo Ren costume
Ahaha. No she didn't. She watched 100 interviews because she's crushing on the actor.
Thanks though, I've only seen the video of her putting it on.
I would like to do a full, hard plastic armor set but I know those are expensive as hell. Something more within my grasp would be Jedi Robes. I don't really know what fabric would be best (in terms of washing, quality and cost) and how to use sewing patterns.
Slave Leia outfit for gf would be... interesting.
how hard is it to turn one of these in to an E-11 or F-11D?
There are too many differences between an E-11 and F-11D to make it worth converting an E-11 over to an F-11D.
I was actually going to make my E-11 using that same airsoft gun, but then I went over the cost for everything and it wasn't worth it for me. $270 for the gun alone, then you need to get the T-tracks for the barrel. A shorter magazine, a replica scope, a rail for the scope, a replica hengstler counter if you wanted one, and the power cylinders that go on top of the magwell.
There are even more nitpicky things like the grip being larger than a real Sterling since that's where the airsoft gearbox is.
I ended up going with a resin kit that I ended up putting about $200 into, but half of that was on optional things I bought to make it more movie accurate. The $90 resin kit would be a better deal over the airsoft in my opinion.
There's a bit more than that. The mag well and hengstler that were on the left side of an E-11 switch to the right, and vice versa with the charging handle. The proportions of the grip and front grip that swings down are different as well. The rear sight and trigger guard are different too.
I don't think there was a huge difference between the L2A1 and L2A3
It's just a foregrip this time
I've been searching for decent looking lightsaber replicas/toys that i can use, however all of them seem to cost far too much, do you guys know of any place I can get quality lightsabers (I live in New Zealand btw
>good looking lightsaber
You have 4 options
>Cheap plastic no sound non-light up sabers meant for kids: $10
>Cheap plastic light up with sound sabers still meant for kids: $35
>Non-Cheap Force FX Light up with sound sabers meant for display and won't last long if you actually dueled: $150 minimum
>Non-Cheap custom lightsaber from Ultrasaber/Saberforge that could stand up to dueling but will take who knows how long for it to ship to you: $100 minimum
That's all in USD
Who doesn't like guns?
Even dipshit Hollywood libtard celebs who rail against private ownership all use guns in their movies, because guns are fucking awesome. They make big flashes, they make loud noises, and they kill communists, Nazis, terrorists, killer robots, space aliens, and whatever imaginary evil you can think of.
I haven't posted in /cgl/ for YEARS, but here's my Kylo Ren costume. Still need to do some mods to the helmet, the wool inner coat still needs to be finished, boot mods need done, and the buckle needs replaced (paint didn't take to the resin too well)
The lightsaber is a Saberforge Relic V2, trading it for a Saberforge Templar that I will have a Igniter 2 and the X-Drive installed into, for some RGB staggered ignition enabled goodness.
I also drive the truck from Twister. It's dirty in this picture (and it's winter) and this picture makes no sense whatsoever, but, enjoy.
I love this costume very much! It's just a hassle getting used to wearing the helmet. I've never had a costume with a helmet before. It's a learning experience. Had to gut the voice changing stuff to make it easier to see out of.
