Thanks, Star Killer. I'll likely tuck the badge into my undertunic for pictures.
Counting the Mk1, this is my second cosplay armor.
I build models as a hobby, which helps with some of the crafting (as well as a reason to have many of the needed tools)

In that case very well done!

I do have a logistical question however, maybe you figured it out, or some other SW cosplayers; batteries for the saber. Currently I'm using a pouch from my old webbing from my time in the armed forces that they didnt want back when I left on a belt so I can move it out of the way for photos to hold batteries in plastic containers (fully charged) when empty I just put them put them back "naked". It also holds a small card holder for the hotel room, debit card, hex key set and phone. Kinda important for long cons where the bateries kinda give out on you a few times during the day. Anyone have any practical solutions?

Correllian Imports used to have badge pouches you could loop to a belt, so that you didn't have that idiot lanyard messing up the vibe of your cosplay.

Not too worried about the badge, honestly.
Still working out the battery logistics, but I do have a pouch for the belt that could hold at least one spare set.
Not planning on having the saber lit all day

It's not going to be lit all day, but the on/off for photos most of the day will kill your bateries, then when more SW cosplayers stream in you'll be stuck doing photos for a while (I enjoy it personally because kids seem to enjoy wanting photos taken with Sith/Jedi because lightsabers are awesome especially from US)

Here's a pouch that is very similar to the one I use,
https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B004Z12YX6
 holds enough batteries in pill containers from the pharmacy (4 batteries per box, 4 boxes in the pouch) plus your cell phone, plus a hex key set, the front flap holds hotel key and cash no problem. I didn't quite go through all my batteries but it was a close call on Saturday; 10am-11 pm.

I recommend the Mute, if you have V4 sound, and only lighting up for photo-ops. I made a full charge last all day. Do you have any pockets? Or......maybe you could work in a small compartment on the inside of your bracers, just to the rear.

Depending on how popular you are, you should be able to go all day with just lights. When I went to Pop-con, I was there for almost 9hrs, with no problems.

The default settings of the V4 sound board have 7 sound fonts and one empty slot that mutes the saber. Sound drains the batts pretty fast. Half hour of continuous use (at least with a BR MLS) Varying colors might require more power and offer less operating time.

Took the kit to Salt Lake Comic Con today, had fun with it, but also found a couple of bugs that need to be worked out of it for the next run.
Next run will likely be at Fan-X next year.
Got a couple of pics of me with some folks who share a love for Star Wars

Looking good Therion Jinn! Just out of curiosity, what bugs did you find with the armor? Enquiring minds want to know for future reference. (I might be attempting bracers in the near future...)

Thanks, Lady Agana
My bracers were about an inch too long. Actually had to take them off so I could eat lunch.
Also, the leg pieces kept rolling around my legs as I'd walk, so I'll likely be going with actual boots for the revision

Good to know. I'll make sure to keep wrist mobility in mind when making mine.
