I can’t seem to edit my post, so here’s some Raiders screen caps for comparison here instead. I can’t recreate the original lighting unfortunately.

You can only edit your post within 5 minutes of posting it I am afraid 🙂

Hey Dan, 

What a great choice of costume. We’ll have a good look over your photos, may take a few days so bear with us. If I need some close ups of anything I’ll ask :o)

No rush dude, take your time 🙂

 

It’s a great costume, you have a good eye for detail. the main thing it needs to take it to the next level is weathering. Weathering is very daunting when you’ve spent hours making something, or a lot of money buying something, the last thing you want to do is roll it in dirt, scratch it with sandpaper or even dust it with paint! But trust me it makes such a difference and gives it that authentic “worn” look which is what he has on screen. If you need any help or advice with weathering just ask. 

The other areas that stand out are all minor fixes so nothing major I can see from the pics so far, I will be able to see better from the pics I’ve requested. So hang fire lol 

I will highlight a few bits that will need to be done to start

The whip is a different colour, get some leather dye on it and make it darker and duller, like in the reference pics 😊

Same for the shoes, they just need to be toned down to a duller brown and lose the stitching round the sole, you can paint over that 👍

The bag could do with the brass ring adding to it, and maybe kick it around in the sand/dust for a bit to make it duller and look older, that’s the key 👍
