I dressed up at Halloween as Han for a party and I realized that my back belt buckle was broken! Well, that's what happens when you get cheap stuff made in China.

That led me to eyeball my Han outfit and I am in the midst of almost a total upgrade of almost every piece of the costume.

First up was a new gunbelt. I decided to go with Todd's Costumes on this one because of the look, the quality and perhaps most important: the price! This is one nice belt and it fits and looks great!

Unfortunately, with a new gunbelt, Han needs a new gun. In the end, due to pricing issues, I decided to go with a resin DL44 from DoopyDoos. I am currently working on it as we speak. Just need the scope to go and then to painting!

I also have just decided on going with Todd's on a new Han vest. I never really liked my old one from overseas. Can't go wrong with Todd's so I anxiously await the results!

I think I will stay with my pants as of now and ultimately, I will finish it all off with the boots, but those will be a pretty penny but as always, I have my eyes on the Todd's which run at about $200....

I will post pics once I get them...stay tuned. Can't wait to get trooping again soon!

Nice, it should look good when your're done.

Does Todd's Costumes have a website? I'm looking for a Han belt for my pilot costume. I saw one of his holsters at Celebration and his work is great.

Visit at toddscostumes.com

I received the Han vest and it's really nice. Lined and comes in a cotton twill with correct sewn pockets, etc.

Just need to finish painting my DL44 and should be good to go again!! Can't wait. Again, pics will be coming...

Here it is!!



Before shelling out a couple hundred on the Todd's boots, I decided to try out the Russian officer boots. Came direct from the Ukraine and I think they work pretty well.

Also, a last minute purchase on the Magnoli Falcon shirt and it makes all the difference. That is one nice shirt!

Anyway, hope you all like it and I hope to be seeing you all at a troop soon!

Thanks, everyone! The belt is a Todd's and the blaster is a resin DL44 from Doopydoos.
