    "The horror...

    ...the horror...."

    Well, it most closely resembled a hydration bottle of the type you would find at REI.

    Any luck so far? I'm also trying to find a suitable look-a-like

    This is what I've come up with. Don't know how screen accurate it is - but it'll do the job for now.
    Lalang plastic bottle from Amazon for £2.48. It did have a load of white text on it but it all came off very easily with a bit of light sanding.
    Sprayed the lid silver, stuck a thin steel band around it and made a leather carrying case.
    Haven't tried it with any milk yet. I'm just going to melt some mint ice cream. That should do the trick.

    Cool. I looked at the few screenshots I could find and it looks (to me anyway) that the bottom is metal. I found a similar glass water bottle and am planning on 3D modelling and printing the bottom and the top band for the bottle to sit down into. Then I have some dark grey pleather laying around here so hopefully that'll work as the strap.

    Nice screen shots. I thought about glass, but as I'm cosplaying with it I figured plastic would be safer. I wish I'd seen the bottom 'though (although I quite like my leather thingy!).

    Good luck with yours and please post some pics when it's finished.

    lol, the actual reason I'm doing this is kind of as a joke. My friends and I who all met through the 501st back in the late 90's / early 00's have all been really close and all love the OT, hated the prequels, and are kind of meh about the new stuff. We liked TFA well enough but for some reason, we ALL came out of TLJ just feeling bad. like the life was sucked out of us. I honestly hated it. I hated it less after watching it a second time but it's still my least favorite ( I don't even count the prequels).
    ANYWAY, we talked about that stupid sea cow milking scene for days afterwards, and it still comes up in conversation about how completely pointless, and unnecessary that was.
    Long story short, we have a tradition going that we'll all meet up on Blu Ray release day and watch it again together (we did it for TFA and RO). It's usually at my house and I usually grill food and provide copious amounts of beer.
    Well I mentioned that we're more than likely having BBQ Porg for dinner (bbq chicken) as a joke and one of my buddies said, "I'm only coming if there's going to be green Sea-Cow milk."
    So for a laugh, I'm going to make an accurate bottle and come up with some kind of awesome green milkshake type drink. I found some smaller bottles that look similar for cheap. I'll use the big one to store it, and will make smaller ones to give people to drink out of and take home with them.

    Here's where I am so far.

    Trent the model looks epic!! Iíve wanted this bottle because of the awkwardness of that scene

    I have been referring to it as ď green *itty milkĒ

    There is ways of making fake cola in vintage peps bottles, I want to find way to make green milk, even if itís in solid state (like the fake cola)

    made a couple of tweaks to it to get the proportions closer. The bottle part of my model is based on the dimensions listed on Amazon for the bottle I ordered. So it may be a bit wider than the screen used one, but I don't know for sure until I get it in. But I'm mainly concerned with the proportions height-wise.

    A little progress. I only had to adjust my files by .3 mm to get it to fit!

    Bottle arrived



    Looks like it'll work just fine.


    Here's the cap minus the silicone seal removed. It's too tall and needs a hole to more closely replicate the open mouth of the original.




    I marked and shaved 8mm off the bottom and then cut a hole with a dremel and drill bit, so that it was as wide as the cylinder on the inside of the lid. Used a grinder wheel to smooth it out and then a couple of minutes with some fine grain sand paper. 10 minute job total.






    Now it's thinner and sits higher up, showing the neck which will be black (either painted or a 3d printed neck ring). I painted the cap silver and will show that once it's dry.




    3D printed band test fit. Printing the base now.

    Playing around with the strapping. This is just some webbing I had laying around. Iím not going to use this itís just to test it out. My wife had a great thought in that it looks like itís secures the same way those yoga mat slings work. So when I find the right material Iíll probably copy that design




    Slapped a coat of silver on the base to get the color closer. Will probably dirty it up with a black wash


    Weathered the glass by misting the outside with a matte clear coat and then scratching it back off randomly with sandpaper.

    I love this. I really hope someone IDs the actual bottle they used. I will drink from it every day, and grimace.

    OK I just got back from Joann's and got some leather-like fabric for the strap that I think will be close enough.
    But now I'm trying to figure out how the strap is constructed.
    I can see a wide band around the whole bottle made of a dark gray blue leather type material, but there's another piece crisscrossing it and I can't really tell what's going on there.
    If you look at the visual dictionary bottle (which is completely different in shape and design, and is also the version Hot Toys went with on their TLJ 6th scale Luke) the wide band is the gray leather and then there's a thinner 1 inch grey webbing strap that's also tied with some brown waxed twine. That image has a better shot of how the strap is constructed but it also appears to be different than the one seen in the movie.
    So I can either try to mimic the visual dictionary strap since I can see that one better, or try to copy what is seen on screen but maybe get it more wrong.
    Opinions?

    Hereís what Iím seeing from the visual dictionary version.




    Do you guys think they just swapped bottles and used the same strap?

    Yeah. Now that I look at it and hold it the way he is in the movie Iím like really sure itís the same strap as the visual dictionary version. Look how the webbing folds naturally when gripped that way. It matches the screenshot exactly.
