Dear God time flies....

Post by Rogueknight » May 19th, 2021, 10:56 pm

7 years??? Has it really been seven years since my last post here?

Well damn, I've stopped by but never stayed- but things will change. Nice to see so many familiar faces from when the site opened! Where the hell have I been? Married, kids, divorced, several jobs... and through it all building has been my safe place.

Still scratching, although at a slower place since I do a lot of prop building, to the point of costuming.

Anyways thought I would stop by, and since my daughter had me do up images of the costuming/ props over the last 3 years- I thought I would re introduce and show the masses. - Ship scratches I still need to deal with, but currently on the desk is a 3.75 scaled Stinger Mantis from Fallen Order.

FYI- Rey's Blaster, Sabine, K2SO, (and another project which will go unspoken, since still in epic construction) were all COVID unemployment cries for sanity...

started year before divorce, and finished the following year. Helmet is only black primer because I was not 100% happy if I wanted to make adjustments, and when final markings I wanted to use... thinking will finish this year... maybe

All dressed up and no where to go... thanks covid..... not easy to convert K2SO to the body of a 9 year old, but the point is made.

Visor material was impossible to find... apparently there is a need for PPE. Finally found some acrylic and car window tinting

Nice to see you here!
Nice job on those costumes! The K2SO is really looking cool!

Sad to read that you have been through troubles. I hope everything will be fine ;)

Wow! Love it! Still wanting to get myself to put together a nice X-WIng pilot costume. Could use some advice on the helmet! But again, no place to wear it at the moment...
