Love this photo of the parts I made for @therealadamsavage to accessorize his beautiful Chewbacca costume. I lifted the pic from @normchan's Twitter so I'm giving him photo cred unless he says otherwise. ;) Btw, the one-day- build video of Adam's droid assembly was posted to Tested this morning!

Clay Threepio feet! I didn't sculpt this set, just did a hot-pour of Monster Clay into a mold. Going to make some slight adjustments then re-mold them to be cast out of latex as shoes. Might be a waste of time... only one way to find out!

When you're figuring out a new skill there's always a learning curve. Comparing the gold on my C-3PO from almost 2 years ago (on the left) to the much brighter and better-looking gold I did about a month ago on the right. Improvements don't always happen overnight so, whatever you're working on, if you keep plowing forward you're bound to get better. Don't give up! ;) ........
........Adding an edit here. Must be the color balance of the photo because I'm completely surprised at how many folks like the left more. I'm sure I'm biased because I've seen them in person but the right is almost dead-on to my favorite screen-used suits. Left is WAY too dark, not only due to too much tint but also because of insufficient silver under the tint coat.
Btw, the one on the right is the one I made for Adam Savage's Chewbacca. Of you've seen that, you might have a different opinion about the color. ;) #StarWars #Droid #C3PO #Threepio #ProtocolDroid #LAC3PO #Replica #Helmet #Costume #GTprops #PropBuilding #PropMaking #AdamIncognito #GordonTarpley #DIY #Maker #SprayChrome #MetalPaint #SpraySilver #AngelGilding #Gold #Goldenrod #GoldPaint #AnthonyDanielsIsC3PO

I think I'll be starting another batch of these next week if anyone is interested. This batch was made for the #ScumAndVillainyCantina

The Chewbacca and Threepio costumes are my favorite character designs in the Star Wars films and both costumes fascinated me since I was a little kid. Great having them both in one photo. Love how this costume came out.

Security was slacking so the droid slipped into the cantina to check out the sweet drink dispensers. ;) Thanks @sugarpirates for the sweet pic!!! #ScumAndVillainyCantina #Hollywood #California #LA #LosAngeles #StarWars #Bar #HollywoodBlvd #Droid #C3PO #Threepio #ProtocolDroid #LAC3PO #GTprops #Replica #Costume #RollsRoyce #Derwnt #JetEngine

Dang, this was super nice!
When someone I hold in such high regard for their drive, talent, and positivity, who ALSO happened to co-host of one of my all-time favorite TV shows, gives @tomspinadesigns (who also fits the "drive, talent, and positivity" description!) and me an amazing shout-out in front of their huge audience... Saying "Day made" would be a gross understatement.
Thanks @therealadamsavage!

Had blast at @ScumAndVillainyCantina last night. I looked crazy but @sugarpirates was hot enough for both of us, even after wrangling a droid! Btw, check out those sweet drink dispensers! ;) #ScumAndVillainyCantina #Hollywood #California #LA #HollywoodBlvd #StarWars #Tatooine #MosEisley #Cantina #LosAngeles #GTprops #Replica

Sculpting C-3PO hands.
Digital and practical.
Notice I don't use "vs". Both methods are fun to do and have benefits.

Spent some time in zbrush yesterday updating my 3d printable C-3PO hands. Starting rework of the fingers this evening.

Photos of the first test fit. Sans pants because they weren't needed. #Chewbacca #C3PO
That beautiful Chewbacca mask was built by @tomspinadesigns and I was lucky enough to make the droid parts. ;) #AdamIncognito #AdamSavage #Chewie #Wookiee #Cosplay #Tested #StarWars #Bespin #CloudCity #EmpireStrikesBack #ESB #Droid #Threepio #ProtocolDroid #GTprops #Replica #Costume #TomSpinaDesigns

Going to start painting this one later tonight. I've got a color scheme in mind but would love to hear what kind of paint job you kids would like to see.

This made my day. If you were wondering, this is why I was chroming Threepio parts a few weeks ago. @therealadamsavage came up with a great rig to support all the droid parts.

Same droid before and after weathering. Dirty is always more fun!
Same droid seen in my previous post, used as an accessory for Adam Savage's awesome Chewbacca costume.
