Aye, I'll fix them hehe.
Not much for update but I've been glueing on some more snaps, got the holster some days ago, tho I asked for the ESB version but I got the ANH.
No biggie, if someone would share a picture how they snap'd on their holster, I would be happy so I know how you guys assembled yours.
Still on the hunt for a decent sewing machine, tho I've not the budget for it right now, I'll have to wait for next salary.

And I'm currently glueing on the velcro on the shins 'cause I used velcro that's self adhesive but that did not last very long.
The motivation has gone down a bit but still aiming to be done maybe late summer.

And for a side quest, I'm repairing my Snowtrooper haha, need to have it functional for Sölvesborg.
For the other costume I've ordered, nothing to tell, it's gone 3 weeks I think and he said it'll be ready for shipping in 3-4 weeks so I'm very excited!

Pew pew...!

Getting there. :)

Thought. Are the shoulder bells very tight or are they just placed low?
If possible you should move them closer to the body and up towards the shoulder bridge.

They are placed a bit low, I noticed that when I saw the picture hehe, I'll try to fix them closed to the body :P

Adjusted the shoulder bells for a higher and closer fit.
And got my latex gloves last week, really "sliskigt" as we say in Sweden hahaha.

And now for something completely different!
Yes I noticed I got the inner robe as the outer robe lol.
Edit: Seems I was wearing it right from the beginning after I looked at on-screen Tusken.

Progress so far, I've completed the hand plates and did redo the knee plate since it fell of before lol.
And if I'm using this costume for parades, I hope they won't rush since I can't walk very fast in this armour.
Next week I hope to order a sewing machine to finally fix the belt and hopefully start on the neck seal.
And I'll probably order some aluminium for the clips on the thermal detonator, or Micke could fix me some plastic ones, if they're acceptable.
Tried to find an undersuit at the sport store but seems like it's not the right season for those products, but I'll keep on checking.
I'll fix the ammo packs that's going to the thigh next week too.

Update once again, got the sewing machine today!
And finished the last pieces on my Tusken and I'm ready for validation!
I'll try to take some application pictures this weekend, hehe.
