Lynn's JAWA WIP - **CLEARED**

Post by LynnMcD » Sat Oct 27, 2018 4:28 pm

Hi,

I currently have a cleared JAWA costume with the UK Garrison but I have just discovered that I can also apply for clearance with the Rebel Legion. I would like to proceed with this as quite often in my area there are RL invites to events but there doesn’t seem to be a UK Garrison invite.

I sourced the correct weave of monks cloth and got it ordered. Everyones favourite multi-coloured auction site provided the bandoliers. Ordered gloves and fur from the same colourful site.


Made a mock up of the robe using a sheet to get sizing before cutting the monk's cloth.

Bandoliers sourced - still to be weathered

Material strips cut ready to glue on to boots.

Had a busy day getting boots wrapped and weathered as well as weathering robe and hood.

Used Evo-Stick multi purpose Impact contact adhesive on the boots and the material strips but beware when using this - the fumes are really bad. Luckily hubby had a good respirator, so, didnt smell anything. I'd tell anyone using this stuff to wear the proper safety gear.

Found a colour of emulsion which looked like a sandy/clay colour when watered down and sponged this randomly on to the robe and hood.

Many days have been spent weathering the bandoliers. The bandoliers were so hard that sanding alone wasn't enough. They went through some industrial weathering with a grinder which seemed to help enormously.

After sanding I applied different colours of shoe polish to give an old weathered effect.

My hubby started putting his ideas into place for the mask. First step is using the frame of an old Honeywell clearview grinding visor and attaching a cheap Jason hockey mask with the middle cut out. The mesh from a kitchen sieve was attached and sealed round the edge with trim to prevent any rough edges. It was then painted black.

The idea behind using this method is to keep it away from my face and so that we can attach fans.

Hubby started working on the eyes. We did some tests with both orange led's & yellow led's in an orange ping pong ball and we found that you could actually see the individual yellow led's through the ping pong ball. The orange led's with the orange ping pong ball was by far the best. We wanted to use a usb powerbank but there wasn't enough draw on it to keep the eyes lit but as soon as we added the fan, it was no problem.

Here are all the components for the test (halved orange ping pong balls, usb powerbank, switch, fan, orange led's & yellow led's)

Trimmed fur so that it is a more natural look at the bottom and allows better airflow, then fitted electronics.

Extra weathering was required on front of robe to make it more random

Hi Lynn
You look great and we really appreciate that you’ve given us a full WIP!
This will be definitely useful for future prospect Jawas!

I think you look great, I’m not a Jawa expert but i don’t see why you couldn’t submit.
