    I'll be certainly watching this progress!

    The folks at Jolly Roger Squadron are discussing the various parts of the outfit.

    Nice start so far. :)

    I have to admit that I've been wanting to do a First Order TIE pilot costume. It's a shame that there still aren't any good references, which kind of surprises me considering how many references there are for the other First Order stormtrooper variants. Hopefully some decent pictures will come up soon.

    It's in the Announcements section:

    I saw your thread in the General Costuming area. Pretty soon the costume will probably need its own subforum...

    I was wondering how hot toys was able to create a full figure with only that 1 screen shot of the front of the mask. they said that had access to photos but it seems as they are rushing these figures out way to fast just to make money and not really caring about detail unless they have some access to private photos from Disney.

    Hot toys are sent reference photos that're watermarked out the wazzoo to work off of

    Wouldn't be surprised if they had some files that were digitally-scanned from the real deal. That's how a lot of the new toys are being made, which is just awesome; really gives an accurate and detailed product!

    What are you using to verify size and proportions? Definitely looking forward to seeing more of this, especially the HUD

    The peak seems a bit high. Perhaps it's not intended to be functional and rotate over the helmet.

    That's so * awesome. How do you start making helmets initially? I'm a newbie. Would like your guidance because it looks wearable and def. with a smooth SMOOTH finishing

    No system , the visor will be a separate piece but I'm not gonna make a "flip down" system when we aren't sure she move yet ;)

    And Skygunbro did a big job on his helmet too !! But I don't need to copy others work , only the real helmet :p

    Thanks :)
