I'm making a ANH Han for my husband, hopefully shooting for completion by next summer '13. I've spent a while gathering information and now I'm starting to gather parts and supplies. I'm planning on doing a fabric run sometime in the early new year.
Husbando has played various disreputable figures like Flynn from Disney's Tangled and Captain Jack Harkness from Doctor Who/ Torchwood before. (These are those costumes I made him below)
and we both have loved Star Wars since we were kids,... so this should be fun! I'm planning on doing myself a ANH Leia. Honestly I don't know why we haven't done these costumes far before now, but at least they'll be better quality since my skill level is of course better than it was when I was 10. :3
And then these are the parts I'm slowly gathering. (They aren't all in my hands yet, but they are all paid for and on their way. ) Hopefully they will all come in without any trouble.
GOT/ON IT'S WAY:
Black waist belt, 3-hole, 2-prong
falcon Vest pattern
Burda young 7733 pants pattern
original 70s long-sleeve polo shirt pattern
resin gunbelt cylinder
Russian private's leather battle riding boots. 19" shaft
Belt tools from Cornelian Exports
droid caller from PropsPlus
Doopydoos DL-44 Blaster resin kit
I'm a decent seamstress so I'm planning on making his pants, vest and shirt myself, too. I'm planning on programming the bloodstripe into my sewing machine and embroidering the stripes myself. I also enjoy painting props so doing the blaster kit should be fun (I hope!)
ANH Metal belt parts
**** If anyone knows a good place to buy the metal ANH belt parts, I'm all ears. I'm planning on trying to do the leather work myself or have a friend help me do it.
Thanks for all the information already on these forums, it saved me a lot of hassle trying to searching things out.
