So, I've been working on a Vader Samurai as well as a Boba Fett Samurai for my 6 and 4year old boys. When I get some time I`ll take a bunch of photos but right now I`m working like crazy on it. It will be mainly in foam and these are the first costumes (hopefully of many) that I`ve done. Just thought I`d post a couple picks of the masks. Any feedback would be appreciated. The Vader is only sprayed with plasti-dip so far.20150404_012003a.jpg20150308_175329a.jpg

And here are most of the pieces in various stages getting ready to be painted (if it ever warms up outside).20150404_131639.jpg.
Fail of the day.. melting through my airbrush hose with my heat gun. Are there any cosplay fail threads with stupid things we have done. A few days ago I decided to seal my mask with a spray adhesive20150330_180727(1).jpg(this stuff is really sticky). Hand got fully covered (didn`t use gloves) and then tried to wipe off my hand with a cloth that was covered in foam powder. It felt like I had been tarred and feathered for a couple days. :p

Wow ... a full costume? Also keep in mind at what time in the day you paint ... especially when the night temperatures might suddenly drop ... to my horror I discovered cracked paint on my ESB armor after drying overnight ... so I could start all over again :wacko

Those came out great! What a novel idea. based on the first pics I was not so sure about where you were headed but the end result is very cool. Well done.
