I just received my email from the 501st and I am approved!! I am now SL-12184!

Thanks for all the support and kind words during my build. I can't wait to meet as many of you as I can at my first official troop in costume at SLCC in September.


Congrats!

After many months of (un)patiently waiting my Sith Acolyte armor it is officially on its way. I am getting the full kit from Mynock's Den and can't wait for it to get here. I already have a lot of the soft parts so once I get the armor completed I should be ready to post for approval. I will be updating as I go along. Feel free to offer suggestions or words of encouragement along the way!!!

I have seen his work. It is top notch.

I spray painted basically the entire armor with flat black. Then I went through and used acetone to take off the black I didn't want, leaving some there or lightly there depending on the pieces. The acetone softens the resin a little so then I went in with 400-600 grit sand paper over the whole thing, then used the highest grade steel wool (0000 maybe? I can't remember) to buff the whole thing out and give it the shine. Let me know if you have any other questions.
