Tunic I open at the sides good length for me. I do believe the top part of the rank badge is up side down...no problem there. I may have to make a few small holes in the badge at the corners to make it more like the screen used one.

Boots that came with the outfit...not sure if these are acceptable.
I believe that stormtrooper boots are acceptable and I also believe that white or black soles are fine.Image
I do have a couple of pairs of TK boots. If need be I could replace the soles with white....hopefully won’t have to.

The belt and boxes that came with the outfit are probably not acceptable anymore.Image
......but luckily I have a very good friend who printed these for me(thanks Lynn and Brian)

So a bit of work on the belt and hopefully it will be almost up to scratch. Still need to make four small greeble pads for top and bottom of the side belt boxes.

lookin good! You seem to have most bases covered in what you’ve said already, others might have some more specialised input. good luck! :)

Yes, you are right about the keyhole shaped boxes. (Great work BTW) We do have the file for them saved in the detachment resources so can send it to anyone who needs it...if they just give us a shout. Standard does say cream leather for the belt, but you might be OK.

I would submit with the storm trooper Chelsea boots.

Its a really good fit....you are nearly there :)

Thanks Empathy, working on the belt boxes yesterday and today...should be ready next week. I can get a cream leather belt no problem but I have got a good ref shot of it being a material strapping of some kind....I’ll dig it out and post it. Thanks again for the feedback. Anything else would be appreciated.

These are shot I’ve got. They are from the “Star Wars Costumes, Original Trilogy” book. Looks like some kind of strapping. I’ve got some new strapping like this on the way, a few pounds for two meters so no great outlay....but I’m sure I could pick up two inch wide cream leather belt......or both, let’s splash out.
What are your thoughts?ImageImage

Go with the ref, I'll note down that the standard needs changing.......maybe the leather bit is just that tiny square at the back of his arm??
