Ok, First of all, I have to say a ginormous THANKS!! for all the encouragement. It's really fueled a creative streak that's seen piles of results. You guys are awesome.
Without further ado.... updates!
Hinges, springs, Eyes, and Chiffon installed! TWINSIES!
sidd is making a pike extension for the saber Corran Horn fixed up for me in exchange for a mask blank. Just waiting on some resin so I can make him a jawset, and then it'll be off to the races. His is the one on the left.
Then I tore out the chiffon in mine because it got in the way of making eyelids! I've also painted the nose, installed the elastic headband, and drafted some ear templates. It was a hard decision, but I like this final position for the ears:
Also, because it was asked for here is a video of the jaw movement (apparently it's still uploading, so this link will work eventually, just not right now. stupid youtube.):
Tonight or tomorrow I'll draft the fur pattern and get the pieces cut and pre-shaved where it needs to be. I can't believe how quickly this project has started moving along, mostly because I have to hold myself accountable to you guys
This thread is the most interesting thing to follow on this site since the original tfuII SK run.
That is the best compliment I've gotten in a long time. And the gwynnch's head grew 3 sizes that day.
You're going to need a new mask.
But seriously, who has done a working shistaven costume with stilts and a moving jaw? NOBODY, that's who. The only person I can think of that's crazy enough to try something that ambitious is Tron, but he seems to be pretty busy at the moment.
Whatever you do, don't you dare stop. This is just so darn cool.

That is AWESOME!!! I wish I had even half the skills you do at sculpting. I really do need to learn how to sculpt and cast molds. I have a few projects that I need those skill sets for. All I can do is make big pieces of aluminum into smaller pieces of aluminum. LOL
Teeth, tongue and lip in. tear ducts finished off... one ear to install tomorrow, then fasteners for the closure, whiskers, and airbrushing! Also, I still have paws and gloves... tempus fugit as they say...
lkstarkiller: I can't believe it, usps delivered my Roman mk1 to someone else. I really hope he insures his packages for the full price. I can't afford to lose $400

lkstarkiller: I am livid right now..... I don't know if I will be able to sleep tonight.

scarecrow: That happened to me over Thanksgiving and my neighbor brought it over. You still might get it.

lkstarkiller: I really hope so. It said it was delivered on the 12th though and I have been home the last two days. You figure if someone else got it they would have dropped it off to me today.

scarecrow: My neighbor was out of town and it sat on his doorstep for five days. I thought for sure it was stolen.

ARKM: Dang! I hope you get your saber.

Rogue Five: This has happened to me before and coincidentally (or maybe not?) it was also a Roman's MK1 I was expecting. Tracking showed it as delivered but it wasn't. I decided to wait another day before contacting the post office and sure enough it arrived.

Rogue Five: It's happened a couple of times with Amazon too where tracking says "delivered" but the package shows up the next day.
Dec 14, 2017 4:28:59 GMT -5
lkstarkiller: It doesn't, it just says delivered front porch december 12th

scarecrow: Call the local post office and they can do something call a geo trace. That allows them to pinpoint the address it was delivered to.

lkstarkiller: I'll have to do it in the morning since its 3:40 am. I probably won't sleep at all so I will go when they open.

Rogue Five: I think it'll be in your mailbox tomorrow but still best to make the PO aware of the situation right away in case your package was indeed lost. Really though, this happens more often than you think. It'll be there tomorrow.
