Star Wars Tie Pilot Costume by dthorne Star Wars Tie Pilot Costume by dthorne
A costume I put together. Chestbox is made from scrap materials, platic, bondo, wood, pvc pipe and end caps, with wooden toggle bottons and plexiglass buttons. Armor is made from a platic trashcan. :) Shoulder straps were formed on a mini vacuum table out of 2 havoline oil cans. Flightsuit is handsewn. I sewed an extension onto the leather gloves and the belt was cut from cowhide and the buckle is made from aluminum with a steel back piece and washers for the greeble in the middle. Helmet is a Rubies Helmet.

Man! I love your Tie Pilot. I've always had a soft spot for these guys even tho I am a huge Fett head. I've done Fett, a biker, and now im working on a sandtrooper. YOu nailed this suit. I see a lot of pilots that look "bobblehead"-like... That rubies buck really fits you well. Makes me want to put a tie pilot together. Great work man!

Impressive! Bit sad that there's a serious lacking of "comercial-uiforms/costumes" selfmade is the only option, and I doubt im constructive enough for that:( , still great work with it,and it's really one of the best uniforms in the movies ;)

I normally hate berets, but this time around, I like it! It's a nice touch, adds a personal element to the aura of a highly professional military pilot. Nice!
