Gunner costume build + My Gunner adventures

Post by 12077 » 08 Jul 2013, 17:15

Hi everyone!
I have all Required Components for my imperial gunner costume ready for approval :) I also have the optional gloves for it.
I would really like to have an imperial crewman hat too, I got one but I´m not at all happy with it :(
I´m also interested about getting belt boxes, code cylinders and a compad for leveling up my costume, so if you have
advice for those components please PM me!
I´m currently waiting for a photoshoot after which I will send my membership application!

Topic Edited 30.8.2013
I will continue this thread to post pics of adventures with my costume, on and off NG.

Try using an image host such as imgur, photobucket or flickr.
There you can upload pictures and just copy the link and paste it here.

And regarding compads; I think Micke Askernas (I might be wrong) sells some nice 3D-printed ones.

And if you right-click on the image choose: "copy image link" and paste it between the two brackets [img]paste%20link%20here[/img], it will show up in your posts automatically!

Be sure to resize the pictures to a maneagble size before doing so. :)

Hey, I have 2 pieces of chalk holders which were used as code cylinders on my Imp Officer costume. Before I got real dosimeters. If you need these, contact me. ;)

Those are almost like this. Tip has been painted blue.

Helmet is from SDS. It came fully assembled, without a cog and the white button on combox.
Little fixing for better fit and it´s ready to wear! It´s guite small though, luckily I´m a small-headed guy :)
