WIP Weekend: Star Wars Build Beginnings
I have a couple of star wars costumes that I’m working on parts of. A friend needs a Rey costume and I’m making the belt. I’m also making my first lightsaber.
The belt I’m making from scratch. It’s 6oz vegetable tanned leather. This is one of the easier pieces to recreate in the Star Wars universe.
The lightsaber is going to be quite a bit harder. I’m building it to celebrate finally having access to a metal lathe. Right now all I have are the electronics. Soon I expect to have three hilts that I have machined incorrectly, as well, and still no lightsaber.
