Life has been keeping me pretty busy, but I haven't been ignoring my projects. Here's a few quick updates.
1) Made another appearance as Vader at the Sacramento Science Fiction and Horror Convention on Sep 25th and 26th. Good crowds and a great time! Had the pleasure of escorting Star Wars Veteran Actor Billy Dee Williams (Lando Callrisian) into the hall to sign autographs.
I took the suit off before I could pose next to him in costume, but here's a few shots from the event.
This is a shot of our 501st Table which greets fans as they approach our area. The Episode II Clone Trooper Helmet on the far left side of the table is the one I just finished, along with the Episode III Clone Trooper Helmet that has the Bondo all over it, sitting right next to it.
Another shot of our table and the helmets.
A pic of myself and my son standing together.
One of my fellow 501st Troopers (Sterling) and his girl.

Next update, another project has arrived! I received a Sgt Fang Boba Fett cast today, and will be working on it slowly.
The resin cast straight out of the box.
After a little bit of work and removing the visor area. Long way to go yet!
On another note, still a long way to go yet on the Episode III Clone. New pictures to follow this week, I hope!
On the way in the near future, a Clone Pilot helmet and two more Episode II Clone Helmets.
I also managed to obtain a Darth Nihilus mask from a friend. It's fiberglass and unfinished. Here's what it will look like when it's done:
No R2 work this past month...been too busy with work and the little time I got to spend on my Clone Helmets. Hope to get back to some R2 work in a coming weekend before the weather starts getting too cold to do anything in my garage. :)
Til' next time!
