I traded my complete Jango Fett suit for this Gamorrean Guard. I got it from the maker in the UK. As soon as I got it I got to work making accuracy changes. I don't beleive there is anything on the suit that hasn't been touched in some way, at least weathered. I would still like to completely remake the vest, bt I'll save that for later down the road. I want to get it to wear it wearable for trooping.

Sad to see it go. Was 60% cold cast w/ Kenneth Coles. I kept the MR's though

Repainted and weathered all the silver parts. Origianlly had a lot of copper tones.

Remade a lot of padding and straps. Original above. Suit didn;t come with the burlap type under garment, so I made that with my 8th grade sewing skill. Also made the rear cover that attches to the mask. Came with some black leather attatched.

Bought half a cow (almost) to make my leather belts. Original below.

I disassembled parts of the vest and made modifications, namely the edge piping and the center disc which came as latex and should match the vest material.

COOL !!! looks awesome.

I've always loved the GG costume.

The "skin" pieces look very well done.

The few improvements done to the vest, look much better.

You will be a massive hit with the kids. I know when my Garrisons GG comes out for a troop the rest of us end up standing on sidelines like "wallflowers". :lol

I'm planning on doing the Modesto Christman parade this year. The Merced parade is always the same day and the Traffic Division is required to work it. Since they killed our traffic division and stuck us all back in patrol, I'll be available this year. :)

Being new to costuming, I was just wondering the other day how someone would pull off a Gamorrean Guard costume. This looks incredible; your attention to detail on the parts you reworked really show. Nicely done!

I got the top half mounted on a duct tape mannequin. I just scrapped the vinyl vest and ordered 50 Sq Ft. of smooth 1mm saddle leather to make the vest. I'll need this mock up to get the right look and fit.

Re: Gamorrean Guard WIP

RPF trade of the year, no doubt. Congrats on the upgrades so far.


I would agree if the suit came with all the upgrades. As it came, The other guy got the better deal. That Jango had all aluminum details and coldcast armor with great leather work and accurate Kenneth cole soled boots. Good thing I kept the MR's

I must admit, I knew what I was getting into, I saw all the pictures before shipping. I was selling Jango for $3200. I'm much happier with a trade cause no money changed hands and it was easier. If I were to buy this suit, I'd buy all the green parts and the furry diaper. I'd make all the rest myself, that's what I'm doing anyway.

I always love these guys. There is one at WDW Star Wars Weekends that goes through the crowd sneaking up on people. I think the 501st group has a couple of these costumes in their ranks. Might ask around there for help if you get stumped. Looks great so far!

If you don't mind me asking, what made you want to trade the Jango Fett suit for the Gamorrean Guard? Just curious.

Ask for help? should be the other way around. Those others guys costumes could use some upgrades of their own. ;) don't get me wrong, they're good costumes but could use some more work.
