    New costome-Lak Sivrak

    Sounds like fun.
  8. Hello all. A long time ago in a galaxy far far away, I wanted to make Lak Sivrak, aka the Wolfman from the Mos Eisley Cantina scene. Over quarantine in 2020, I finally took steps to make the costume. The following is my journey. Chapter 1: References I admit, references were hard to come by. He only shows up very briefly in the original cut of ANH. All we have from that scene is this: Which is the head and pretty much nothing else. Fortunately they released a figure back in 1998 (despite being digitally removed from the 1997 special edition, grr). This figure is what I based most of my costume on, since it's the only full body reference I could find. Here are some other references that I have found: Chapter 2: The Legs Being a wolfman, Lak Sivrak had digitigrade legs, meaning he walked on his toes with the rest of his feet raised above the ground. In other words, he has bendy legs. I could have achieved this with either stilts or wearing pants that's padded in certain spots to give the illusion of digitigrade. I opted for the stilts. Using a pattern I got from Etsy, I gathered the supplied and made a pair. They were surprisingly easy to get into and walk around in, although I haven't tested it at a convention yet. Chapter 3: The Costume The costume was pretty straightforward. I don't have many pictures of the costume as I was working on it. For the pants, I got these. For the inner shirt, I got a cotton V-neck long sleeved shirt (sorry, the exact one I got is no longer available on Amazon). For the outer shirt, I got this. Belt buckle was made out of worbla, spray painted silver. Belt itself was made with faux leather. Gloves were gray leather gloves with these nails super glued onto them. The wolfman feet were werewolf werewolf feet cut and glued onto the end of the stilts, with a bit of expanding foam in them. I used Rit Dye to dye the shirts and pants the right shade. Lemme tell you, it took a lot of trial and error to get it the right shade that I would like. I also had to be conscious of using dyes meant for natural fibers vs synthetic fibers. Chapter 4: The Mask This was probably the hardest and most frustrating part of the whole operation. I'm not artistically gifted and I do not have the talent or the time to sculpt the mask. I scoured the internet and costume shops trying to find a premade mask that closely resembled Lak Sivrak. In the end though, I knew I had to get creative. Lak Sivrak has a classic 'Wolfman' look, but with a snout. I ended up getting a wolf man mask from Amazon (sorry, item is no longer available) as well as this werewolf mask and this lion mask. I started by cutting the teeth out of the lion. Sorry buddy. Then I performed a dental transplant onto the werewolf mask, to give it a more impressive snarl. Then I cut the snout off of that mask and glued it onto the Wolfman mask. Also, I glued a pair of these werewolf ears onto the sides of the head. Using grey latex paint, I painted the skin grey. Then I glued brown fur all around the head. That took way longer than I expected. The same brown fur is what I used to make the sleeves and covers for the stilts too. Chapter 5: Approval? Well, here it is! I wore Lak Sivrak for Halloween which went without a hitch. There hasn't been much going on eventwise the past couple of years and I had my first kid this year, so I haven't gotten around to making this post until now. Comments? Critiques? I would love to share a drink with Lak Sivrak with some other Mos Eisley Cantina lurkers in 2022!

    I guess we have a wait and see deal as always. Either way the big question is has anyone started building any of them?

    Well Benthic and Edrio were both placed in the Underworld detachment but I recall it was very touch and go if they were suitable for the 501st as they were clearly Rebels and can't remember why they were finally accepted. Since then a fair chunk of the LMO team has changed so opinions may have changed. Ultimately it will be down to them again.

    I have a question about the Partisans that escorting The Pilot Body. There is one Biker Scout seen. I did the full Costume of him and maybe is it possible to approve that costume as an Denizen? I think it should be possible because Benthic was approved too.

    Hello, good morning, how are you? I'll ask you a question, we are from Argentina from the garrisonst501. and we have several members in approval of the Kryt Clan since we want to retake the arming of our local Clan. What could we do?

  14. Boots are almost finished Have to heat up the buckles to shape them to the shoe Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Thanks been balancing this and like a few other costumes. Boots have been finished also so will post them soon. I have also finished pants and just need to fix the tunic to have like a RTOJ Luke skywalker style closing tunic. Funny thing is the fabric I bought is heat resistant welding fabric so fits the theme of the character. Just need to weather it or leave it in the sun to fade the color to make it look worn.

  16. Whoa! looks amazing so far!

  21. Hi James, This looks vaguely familiar Good luck with the build.
  22. Scrapper Guild Watchman - Bad Batch Season 1 ep 7 - 8 Information on Scrapper Guild The Scrapper Guild was established during the Clone Wars, when the facilities on Bracca was optimized to efficiently dismantle and salvage capital ships, a process known as "scrapping" which soon became the most profitable industry on Bracca. The Guild expanded and adapted its enormous scrapyards to handle the disposal of many types of starships and vehicles, as well as the recycling and repurposing of related technology and infrastructure. During the war, sympathizers from the Guild aided the Confederacy of Independent Systems in an attempt to wrestle the system away from Galactic Republic control. In response to this, the newly formed Galactic Empire cut wages and lowered safety standards within Bracca's scrapyards. Despite these cutbacks, the Guild began an expensive campaign to find favor with the Empire by focusing on eradicating any vehicles, equipment and technology associated with the Galactic Republic. Shortly after the formation of the Empire, the Bad Batch, a group of rogue clone commandos, visited Bracca with former Clone Captain Rex to remove their inhibitor chips in the medical bay of a wrecked Venator-class Star Destroyer. To avoid Scrapper Guild patrols, they landed their ships in a hangar some distance from the Star Destroyer and walked in. When Wreaker asked why they had landed where they did, the group had to take cover from a Guild patrol on a hover barge, and Rex explained that they controlled the planet. Later that night, after the surgeries had taken place and Rex parted ways with the Batch, two Guild members on patrol saw squad leader Hunter outside of the wreckage, and one ordered that the Empire be notified about the intruders. This isn’t so much a WIP build. References and finished costume soon to come, all 3D models are completed and printing at the moment. I won’t post anything till I have fully completed the costume. As I have learned a finish product speaks more then just words and pictures of references. All models have been given room to allow LED lighting or electronics to cover future levels of the CRL if wanted. Will post finished costume with comparisons to the References from the animated series. The references are at highest quality obtainable from the web series that where screen captures taken frame by frame, with a 360 view of the character when possible. References used have been digitally lit so that correct details could have been seen in dark moments, so that models made where accurate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thank you for looking into this for me. I do appreciate the help.

    Hello Jeremy so sorry for the late reply, all the DCA did research on the goggles, movie stills and including looking at the current CRL. The only suggestion that we would request changed to Brad's costume, would be to stiffen the hood brim so it doesn't "wibble" over the goggles. Sorry it wasn't as informative as you might of wanted. Though we are taking in everything that was said here and looking into it for future reference.

    Hi ya Jeremy, So you dont worry I was one the one that just deleted all the email address's and some of the full names. I'm going to touch base with the other DCA have a good look for you. So bare with us. You could also pop this in the GML area and we could also be help you there, its also more private, I'm pretty sure as a CO you can enter it.
  26. Hello I am the the CO of the Carolina Garrison and I am trying to resolve a issue that we are having about approvals of a Character in your Detachment. What follows is the the emails back and forth. Hope all is well and you’re hanging in there! I reached out to James to get a second opinion on what I submitted based on reference pics and pics of others with the approved costume in other garrisons. Can I get your assistance with communicating to James about my inquiry? Thanks in advance!

Thanks in advance! On Mar 17, 2021, at 2:06 AM, Brad wrote: Greetings! You were copied on the email below back in August when I first submitted my Garindan costume. While I agree on the 1” strap missing from the goggles, I don’t agree with the rest of the corrections. Below are two examples of 501st member with their approved Garindan costumes. Both have square, 90 degree angles on the goggles and the second pic shows someone using the same mask I am. The hoods vary on both from way above the googles to pulled down so close that the fabric bridges across. Both do not have a “washer” between the goggles matching the CRL. Another reference image comes from a short story called Cantina Communications which was published in Star Wars Official Poster Monthly 16, The Star Wars Compendium 2: The World of Star Wars, and archived on Hyperspace. You’ll find the hood is even further down than the previous two along with the washer not matching the CRL pics, the stitching across the bridge of the nose is an X pattern and not a zig zag, and the goggles having sharp, 90 degree edges. If you could review my costume, the Imgur link is in the original email below, and compare it to the other two 501st members along with the CRL, I would appreciate it. <image.jpg> <image.png> <image.jpg> Thanks in advance! Brad Begin forwarded message: From: Andrew Date: August 23, 2020 at 11:35:02 PM EDT To: Brad Cc: jimmy28532 Subject: Re: Garindan Costume Submission  Hello Brad, This Garindan costume is well on its way to approval. While most of the costume passes basic approval, there are a few items which must be addressed from the CRL before we can add this costume to your roster. Mask The snout, has visible cross "Stitching" down sides and around snout where it meets the face. While the snout has stitching at the bridge of the nose, it is an X-stitch, and you will see in the visual reference in the CRL, it's a zig-zag (or Z-stitch) all around the snout. Goggles Dark Grey or black in color. Smooth front plate with protruding lens rings. Lenses are dark enough to hide the wearers eyes. Unmodified safety goggles with visible side vents are not allowed. A round washer-like greeblie is located in the middle of the goggles which stands out from the goggles. While your mask contains the text elements of the CRL, it does not match the visual reference for the Goggles. You will see in the visual reference (link below) the goggles have rounded edges, and a black elastic 1" strap. Also, the washer-like greeblie is incorrect. Again, see the visual reference in the CRL. Outer Cloak The hood has a small lateral peak just above the goggles (similar to a short baseball cap brim) which raises the hood above and away from the goggles. The hood opening may have a hidden piece of wire / plastic / leather, around the face, to maintain the proper shape. You'll notice in your first picture, the front edge of the outer cloak droops. By adding the additional structure, the front of the cloak will frame your mask better. https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:Garindan Thanks, Drew 30332 On Sat, Aug 22, 2020 at 10:12 PM Brad wrote: Hello, Please see the link below for my photos of my Garindan costume submission.

  27. Hal Hickel (ILM Animation Director) has been posting pics from his day on the set of R1 over on Twitter. The edges do seem to have a finish to them, on the cowl at least. And note the different types of material. Beautiful shot of how the cowl is constructed from behind: https://photos.app.goo.gl/F2Rhb6A7HbitvoSB9 I think it's a medium thickness wool (according to the actor I spoke to) and has a rectangle sand papered down to view out of (zoom in and note the wrinkling around where the eyes actually are) https://photos.app.goo.gl/mBUK424bd8RB1Dhu8
