Thought i show pics of me in costume over the weekend first time wearing it for a kid toy/game convention our local 501st attended. The mouth on the mask opens when i open my mouth, and closes with springs. Also have sound effects too, till i learn to use my own voice. THe whole costume is still a work in progress, gotta do some more trimming, so i dont shed, and pull more hair out, too thick in spots yet, more work on the face yet, and add some fans. Plus air out the mask, between clear coat and hair spray, i started getting dizzy after a few hours. I didnt realize i put my feet on wrong, left on the right, and vice versa, so after 2.5 hours, couldnt walk anymore, the kids there loved it thou. Sorry for the crappy pics, didnt bring the better camera with, the second pic is with my beautiful wife.
I was pretty exhausted from this, last two weeks spending 6 hours a night to finish it up to wear, and have a christmas parade in two weeks to look forward to.
ps. A HUGE thanks to Richard aka rileyreplicas, he has been a big help to me, great guy, thank you Richard. Your the best.
