Danish Royal Guard ROTJ

Post by 10413 »

Hi

After a lot of research, talks on the Forcepike.net with other builders, I´ve finally finished this project for another member Morten Petersen 77333.

The pics has been sent to the GML- team, so fingers crossed...

Here is a link for the process-pics : https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id ... 254&type=3

Morten had the helmet himself, but it was a wrong color (very bright red), so my dad made a repaint on it with a spraycan - very nice work, if I may say so myself ;)

My mum helped me with the cloak, since the velvet was making me crazy - not the easiest thing to sew in...

So here are some info about the build :

Outer cloak is made out of velvet with a burgundy lining made of fabric (as to the CRL on the forcepike.net and talks with the DL)
Innerrobe is made out of the same burgundy fabric as the lining
Sash is also made out of the burgundy fabric
Gloves are a real find - burgundy suede
Boots are synthetic black leather

The forcepike has been ordered - and since it´s an optional accessori, Morten didn´t need it for the approval pics ;)

Looks good! ROTJ Royal Guard have red suede boots though, but it should pass for an attack of the clones-guard with the black boots.

Yes, they have, but since the red boots are hard to find - it is allowed to use the black boots for "normal" approval. He can always get the red boots afterwards...

Thanks ;-)

If only it was so simple Nicky, but the boots need to be made of suede and with a very pointed toe...

I´ve found some, but I need to get an OK from the DL over at Forcepike before buying them ;-)

I meant, paint them with a can of Screen Accuracy™ Universal Coat, works on any costume part to give it a screen accurate surface!

For basic approval the black boots should work for a ROTJ guard.
You wouldn't be able to switch to a AOTC since they have two slits for the arms (one on each side) as opposed to the ROTJ with only one slit on right side.

My only concern would be the length of the outer robe as it looks like it is a bit too long.

The ROTJ guard also uses the red boots, if you look at the CRL - but no we´re not going to switch.

The robe is a bit to long, so we´re going to shorten it, only comment from the GML, so that´s great news ;-)
