Good to know. I'll make sure to keep wrist mobility in mind when making mine.
My mistake was not checking the size with my template before actually building the bracer.
And I think my leg rotation issued was from the foot covers hitting them when I walked

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 batteries kinda give out on you a few times during the day. Anyone have any practical solutions?
I put spare batteries in a re-purposed cell phone pouch and clip them to the back halves of my belt along w/pouches for my phone, tools, biz cards, etc.

I used a pair of tool pouches on the back. One for my camera and spare batteries, the other for my diabetic insulin kit

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



What there is of my con album can be found here:

This is simply amazing and very, very inspiring to me. Point.

Thank you, Dutchman.
I was definitely happy with the look. Just needs tweaking.

Very sound advice, Darth Logos
When measuring forearms for tings like this, one should probably measure a bent forearm, not straight

After some thought, it was time to make the necessary adjustments to the 2.0 version of the Sith Armor.
I also made a couple of changes to how things were going to work.

The original pieces, prior to modification


The plan was to cut a bit of length off the bracers so I had full arm movement.
Having gotten actual boots for this suit, I cut the main leg pieces down so it was primarily the armor.
The belt got some of the biggest changes as I took it from a single belt to a double and intended to add spacers as well as a new back plate for the buckle.



With the belt now finished up, I replaced the old version's tool pouches with a single utility pouch.
Went in on the buckle and painted the engraved design in Tamiya red.
Seeing how that turned out, I made similar markings on the bracers and chest piece.
I also changed out the gloves for ones that let me better grip the sabers.




After putting on the full costume, I decided to drop both the knee pieces and the 'spats' I'd been wearing to hide the fact I was wearing shoes.
I really like the end results here.

Dutchman, you flatter me again.
