Hello everyone!
I was asked if I'm able to make a Hoth trooper hat. I've tried and I'd like to share the result of my work Smile What do you think? The combox was made by my boyfriend, it's resin cast.

The hat looks very nice. That is a tough build, even for experienced seamstresses.

I wouldn't exactly be advertising that your boyfriend is recasting... if you mean that he made a recast copy of another vendor's work. Just FYI, recasting is pretty frowned upon.

Oh my, absolutely no! I've used wrong words. No, no Smile He built "the base" by himself, made a silicone form and then used thin layer of resin to make the combox as light as possible.

You are fine, it is just one of those words that have special meaning in the community.

I applaud your efforts and your workmanship. Please keep up the great work!

I understand your feelings. I had a situation, when a guy bought from me an imperial hat, unstitched it and gave it to another tailor to make a copy. Fortunately his tailor wasn't able to recreate my work, but I remember how pissed I was that time. The memory of this makes me feel more embarassed of my mistake.

Thank you all for compliments Smile
