May the 4th was the opportunity to upgrade a few of our costumes. Among others was Reggie’s Tie fighter pilot. So far, his chest piece was only made of soft fake leather, and it had none of the rigidity nor the shine of a real piece of Armour.
We have watched Evil Ted fantastic work with craft foam, and had the idea of doing a new chest piece with EVA foam. With simple tools (we don’t have a workshop and do most of our props in the dining room), but with dedication, we crafted this prop, and I dare say it is not too bad for a first foam armour.

How we made the helmet here.
And finally, how we made our glue pot here (after a while, it became obvious that we couldn’t continue with a plastic plate: too much wastage!).
a very simple jawa bandolier, easy to put together, and all you need is a bit of synthetic leather!
the template for the pouches is here:

Last week end, Singapore has seen its biggest Star Wars Day festival to date, complete with the first ever Star Wars Run in Singapore.
The whole family was there, of course, in costumes!!!
Jedi robes! How exciting!!
And you can use them for other characters too!!! An old wizard, the high priest of an obscure sect or even a grim reaper!
And you can complete your jedi look with the outer tunic tutorial, found here.
As mentioned in the video, you can find the complete tutorial from Sithrog at this address:
For the rest, sorry if we didn’t post anything in a long time… but we have been busy lately!
We now have a Youtube Channel :

Finally found time to dust and rearrange the old display… feeling better…
Oh. My. Gosh. Where to start?
We were invited to see the Singapore premiere of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This movie is not good, it is beyond that! In many ways, i preferred it to TFA. More action, more Easter Eggs, and a global feel that this movie is really part of the Star Wars saga. For old fans like me, I think this is the movie we were waiting for. The way it is directed is very modern and current, but everything is linked to the great Original trilogy we love so much. Creatures, décors, space battles : all the ingredients are there!
My only little regret is the use of computer graphics for some characters (as I said, No spoilers, so you will have to see for yourself), as I had the feeling I was watching some scenes from a video game like “Battlefront”… however, the plot and the use of these SFX is done well, the story is still believable, and it is a moment I won’t forget.
