    Just thought I'd share with you guys my latest completed project.

    A bit of background info: I wanted a neck brace to go with my modified Rubies Supreme helmet. I scouted Ebay for some of the available kits, but being from Malaysia and taking into account our forex rate, these kits were kinda pricey. So following instructions on Darth Micah's website, with a few mods of my own to make it more screen accurate (not 100%, but I would say 70% maybe?) I bought a few materials and scratch built the thing myself. Here it is together with my Vader ANH saber (also not 100% screen accurate) which I built based on MikaJedi's tutorial on his site (thanks Mika.).

    He relocated his website since then. Try here: http://www.tk7524.com. Click on "costumes" and then "neck brace".

    :lol Dude, you want ultra screen accuracy... I'm afraid that mine's nowhere near that.

    Here's some updated pics:
