Poe's Snowtrooper build WIP

Post by Poe » 12 Sep 2014, 23:59

So, I have finally started to collect the parts needed for the TS. Starting whit the soft parts
Pants:

Gloves:

Belt:

The belt I bought from Ice Axe/TKittell (Blizzard Force/FISD), and the quality on that is just excellent :D
Duster an pouches is ordered from CDR Thire (Blizzard Force), and are on the way from the U.S.

Please don't hesitate to tell me what you think about the weathering, and other little things :)
I myself, is a little worried about the seams on the gloves, but I hope that problem will be hidden under the hand guards :?

So now all that's left is that looooooong wait (well, not really. It just feels that way) for the armour to arrive. Oh, and to find a good place to order some mukluks... Aaaand an E-11... ;)

To be continued

Regarding the Muklucks, please do not buy same size Muklucks as your normal shoes.

If you do, you can fit the normal shoes, AND the Mukluks together on your feet... The Muklucks originally have a inside shoe in them, a felt one, for the -40 degrees and more. You can find them without the inter shoes, and buy a smaller size if you cannot find a exact size.

I have a shoe size of 43, normally, and I can use running shoes inside the size 43 Muklucks... A size 40 Mukluck is also a bit too big for me, but better for the costume...

The Mukluks in the ESB did not need the inner shoes, as the Snowtrooper screens had been taken all in studio, to my knowledge. That means that the extra shoes were not needed, as the temperature were not that cold.

By the way, whose armour parts are you going for?

Thanks for the mukluk hints :) I use size 41/42 in regular shoes, so I was thinking about buying mukluks in size 40, and put some slipper shoes inside, or use them with the wool liner :)

As for the armour parts, I'm going for TM :)

Small update. Duster and pouches has arrived from the U.S. and CDR Thire :) They are even better than I expected :D

Mukluks are on order from Wales (denbigharmysurplus.co.uk), and I also ordered a blaster-set from DoopyDoos for a pipe build.

I'm also thinking about making a holster. I know it's not canon, but I guess it can be quite nice to not have to hold the E-11 all the time ;)

Update time!
Mukluks and the non canon holster :)

I have also, nearly, finished the E-11 as well. A pipe build with a DD-kit. The only thing left (I think), is to try and make the greeblies, to turn it into a ESB stunt blaster.

And as always, any suggestions you have, is most welcome :)

No, unfortunately not. I ran out of money at the time and did'nt have sufficient funds until now.
And then RS came out with their Anniversary Stormtrooper Armor, so I managed to by one of those instead.

So now I am the proud owner of an RS kit :D
