Got another update for today, managed to almost finish the boots and the flight suit is now ready apart from the yellow patches.
Image

I added the black stripes to the flight suit using black 1/2 inch ribbon and heat bond iron on strips. They have stuck together really well now.

Image

I have also added two clasps similar to the ones used by imperial officer for the collar, as well as closing the pockets with some Velcro.

The Boots are modified ATDP Gaitors, which I handmade the "buckles" and filled in the groves to make them smooth to match more closely to the design from the episodes, still a couple of alterations but they are almost ready.

And this is the whole costume coming together, hopefully I may well be ready for the app process this month :gunner: : :D

Well I'm back again, I've added the yellow Imperial Decals to the flight suit, and I have a new helmet, which is has a better finish than my previous one as well as the more angular jaw and the swoop doesn't rest horizontally.

Well, Overall I think Its ready, its been a long journey but I think the end is in sight, what do you guys think? :gunner: :)

:shock:

That looks great! Looks like I need to spend some time this weekend writing the CRL so we can get you approved. Assuming that everything matches the references, you'll have made detachment history!

Awesome work!!!!

I have a preliminary CRL written and I have passed it along to our assigned LMO. Hopefully we'll be able to finalize it in the near future. We will need pictures for the CRL. Jamie, are you familiar with the requirements for that?

Quick Update, So excited to see that the CRL is coming together, so close to getting approved I cant wait. :D
I have made some "gold" patches today, as the CRL atm is confirming the emblems as more of a "gold" color than "Bright Yellow", I can attach these to my costume very easily once I've had confirmation on the color of the emblems. I also would like to say thank you to all of you for helping me so far with this project, you guys are awesome, and I cant wait to one day troop with you. :D :gunner:

I just got back home after another race weekend. Let me doublecheck the references again. I didn't have any problems with your current set of cogs but just to be on the safe side I'll review everything again and update the CRL text. Maybe that could be more clear. I can see where gold can be a confusing color.

Background on the cogs... they are an homage to the Pittsburgh Penguins colors (not kidding). The artist discovered that Filoni is a Penguins fan and decided to add that in as a joke/nod/whatever. That's the story I was told. So, I see that yellow as a variant of the "gold" color and not in reference to the metal. For example: http://www.color-hex.com/color-palette/2799
