CW Skirt Progress Pt. 2

Still not finished yet, it's still missing the other panel on the skirt and the rest of the other ones on the other side haven't been made yet.
Will update again when finished.

CW Skirt Progress

Just a small update to show you what we've been working on lately.
Apparently my mom loves to build skirts or something because a few days ago when I got home she was already cutting out pieces and everything way before I got home.
So most of the skirt was built by her. lol

And also, Good news! Todd a fellow builder and friend, volunteered to help me paint Goldie! He's a professional painter and told me over the phone he could paint it in layers and can get it to have all the different colors and highlights in the dome and body.
So when I get Goldie close to being finished enough to paint him, I'll have to spend about a week down in Orlando with them to have him painted.

Oh, and about the Trigun revolver, I have been working on it(not this week though) and I still have a ways to go before even get it ready for priming what with all the pits and the fact that the mold is kind of lousy.
Will post pics when I do get it primed.

Paint color choices.. part 2

Okay so we're back to trying to find a gold for Goldie.
Here are some of the different yellowish gold colors I found:

I don't really care for any of those golds very much, so what do you guys think?
Too much yellow for me.

While looking through pictures of Goldie on other websites I found this:

To me that tan-ish gold color looks pretty close to what the gold looks like in the picture below.
So I might be going with this color on the cubee Goldie in the picture to the left.

In the cartoon you can see that Goldie has many different shades of gold in his dome and on his body. There's yellow, gold, tan, and even a little bit of green.
So really, there isn't really one single color for Goldie at all. Which is why I am going with whatever color I think looks best on him.

So do you guys think the cubee Goldie in the picture looks closer to the Goldie the picture above or are one of the other colors better?

New projects!

While I'm waiting for more parts to come in for my droid, I'm going to be working on this Trigun revolver prop:
I'll make an update when I'm finished with it.

Also while I was at Megacon this year, I finally decided what costume I want to make next year.
A Rebel Pilot:

So when ever I get the chance I will be joining the Rebel Legion website and seeing which rebel pilot I want to make.
Right now their website seems to be down or something because I can't get to it.
(I will make an update of which one I choose when ever I can get to their site.)

Megacon 2011

Megacon is finally over and I am exhausted!
I had lots of fun this year and the booth looked better than last year with the combined efforts of The Southern R2 Builders group and The Rebel Legion.

First off, some pictures of our booth:

My droid Goldie still unfinished of course!

Jessica's R7C1 droid.

My mom's(Brenda's) R3T7 droid.

Now for some pics of some of my favorite costumers at Megacon:


My favorite costume there, he can even make the weird alien voice. (One of the aliens from "Mars Attacks".)

Some guys from the 501st also stopped by our booth for pictures.

Our droids out cruising around.

Well, that's all until next year... *sob* See you all in a year! ;)
