  • The Studio

    The Studio

    Back in 2021 I relocated the studio closer to home; in case of covid lockdown it felt easier and safer than having to drive over an hour both ways. So I moved to a much smaller place, with enough space to work, display all of the projects and allow garrison mates and friends to pop […]

  • Aldhani Trooper PT1: armor

    Aldhani Trooper PT1: armor

    One of my preferred character in Andor, the aldhani trooper is obviously a must project. Two parts the armor and soft parts. This here is reminiscent of the mud trooper front/back plate, biceps are same as for shore/tanker/etc… the shoulder obviously mud trooper based on the deathtrooper from Rogue1. I Very much like the fact […]

  • AxeWove Commission

    AxeWove Commission

    Love working on DeathWatch since it allows me to do so much weathering on clothing. First by dyeing the clothes “imperfectly” on purpose giving them each their unique look. Then working with the “spices” to make them look (and smell) great … and of course the armor paint job…

  • Medic Trooper

    Medic Trooper

    An incredible concept drawing by a fan introduced the Medic Trooper, one that clearly should be on screen … so years of building experience to work with conceptual drawing in order to bring life to it properly, choosing the right era for accessories, the right design pattern etc… It was also exciting to work with […]

  • Look At my Ball

    Look At my Ball

    So I printed a training ball, glued and painted it just to realize I forgot some part !!! On the upside I got the base colour right and it still looks quite good so not all is lost.

  • BBQ (incinerator) Trooper

    BBQ (incinerator) Trooper

    This was a fun project. Working with the classic TK armor to build the incinerator trooper. Of course the character became viral after season one of the Mandalorian and I do hope to make one WITH the R1TK armor parts once I put my hands on it… There were a few interesting finds during this […]

  • Childhood Memories: SpaceTrooper Pt01

    Childhood Memories: SpaceTrooper Pt01

    Like anyone of my Generation, I grew up with the Star Wars toys. At twenty something I did the dumb thing to sell them off. For the past year or so I have been trying to recollect exactly what I had and start buying these back whenever I can find. The most iconic of all […]

  • Clones Repaint

    Clones Repaint

    What do you do when your 9+ years clone armor have yellowed out and sort of not look that great anymore? I got two clone armors and helmets dropped at the studio for a total facelift… Definitely more extensive work than I originally expected.

  • Jaina Solo

    Jaina Solo

    Commission work for a lady trooper here in Shanghai. The helmet is just one part of the total custom job done; I replicated the chestbox, the jumpsuit, falkvest, ejection strap …

  • TK Concept – Bad Batch

    TK Concept – Bad Batch

    I love ALL Star Wars , Movies, Series , Animated … I take it all and if I like something I will build it. With the Bad Batch Animated, we got introduce to the “TK” with a rendition of the RMQ concept and of course I started working on printing one … what a look […]

  • TSHIRTS A Go-Go

    TSHIRTS A Go-Go

    So I placed all the design I have made ( SW related of course) on Tee public. Head to http://tee.pub/lic/Red2 to get yours !

  • Droid Heads

    Droid Heads

    A whole droid is often difficult to keep at home, but a few heads look great on shelves or next to helmets. So I started these with more to come. SLA450 RESIN printer and of course hand painted at the studio .

  • ICAT Helmet 02

    ICAT Helmet 02

    It did not take long before the first helmet left the studio and a second one was printed and painted… and before it was finished already found a new home, expect a ICAT helmet 03 in the very near future

  • DeathWatch Bust

    DeathWatch Bust

    Another one of my favourite character in the Mando series is the Season 01 Deathwatch. The Live action characters are so well designed and wear such unique colours- This bust is for my private collection, a few details left to fix but it is already one that will stick with me for a long while […]

  • Mud Trooper Bust

    Mud Trooper Bust

    working on the mud trooper bust with new weathering techniques for both the armor and the clothing. respirator is progressing, helmet done, next goggles!. SLA450 RESIN Printed – the armor is printed as one piece

  • China Game Convention -PT2

    China Game Convention -PT2

    By far my favourite costume… the zombie trooper and since I had an extra officer suit at hand, I made the imperial officer version of the zombie. Also figured out that the WorldWar Zombie sound works way better than the Walking Dead one – it does give a bit of a soar throat but really […]

  • Weathering clothe

    Weathering clothe

    A great costume needs to have “lived” so that it can sell the character you are portraying. The same way you would apply weathering to an armour, your soft parts needs attention too. Step 01: WASH // wash the parts a couple of times to get the new fabric shine out. Wash with clear water […]

  • China Game Convention- PT 01- Wookiee

    China Game Convention- PT 01- Wookiee

    Have not trooped in convention since SWC Chicago, it was fun being back in the crowd (safely with vaccine and mask and all). Always nice to see other troopers and their newest build. Obviously also great to share a “wookiee” with the crowd and the other troopers…instant hugs

  • BR-4D – my Pitt Droid

    BR-4D – my Pitt Droid

    Another addition to the droid crowd is the new pit droid I have decided to name BR-4D and if it is not official in the canon maybe it should be 🙂 Printed in the SLA450 printer and assembled /painted in the studio; Br-4D is great at fixing Gonky

  • Gonky Gonk

    Gonky Gonk

    Always wanted to have a Gonk droid; now that I have done the first one I realize how big these things are! Definitely need space to display something like that; Good thing is you got cargo space inside that baby…

  • Break Time – LEGO

    Break Time – LEGO

    Two new UCS added : the Shuttle and Classic Tie Fighter

  • ICAT Helmet

    ICAT Helmet

    Like many fans, I love the Mandolarian TV Series, and I like many I found the ICAT driver a great example of the consistency in costumes between eras, movies, etc… This is the first ICAT helmet painted with mid-heavy weathering.

  • Shock trooper – ROTS

    Shock trooper – ROTS

    New Clone shocktrooper helmet – 3D printed resin, magnetic faceplate and mid-light weathering

  • Break Time – LEGO Fun

    Break Time – LEGO Fun

    When I need a break from making costumes… I build legos; UCS and MOC. I just love the way they look when they are completed. Obviously they take time to build but the detailing and final results make them so worth the effort

  • Wookiee Bust

    Wookiee Bust

    Making a wookiee bust is a taxing work – the latching of hair onto the mesh bust clothing takes a lot of time. I am always trying new technique and this one is promising, might very well simplify the whole process – the key question remains to see if the hair will remain in place […]

  • M-A-W Shanghai

    M-A-W Shanghai

    Due to my injuries and covid-19 I have stayed away from trooping since last December. Even with things getting much better in China and being able to pretty much resume life – I am still keeping some distances from public events, BUT when M-A_W makes a request for a wookiee I simply cannot refuse…just trooping […]

  • BESKAR: This is the way

    BESKAR: This is the way

    What I love about making these props is the challenge that each build bring; sometimes it is new material you need to work with, sometimes new building techniques and sometimes painting. I learned airbrushing for my Lando bust- for this Mandalorian Beskar armor it is working with graphite powder. Print > Sand > Prime > […]

  • Lando Skiff Guard Bust

    Lando Skiff Guard Bust

    This character I remember was one of my all time favourite kenner toy. I have always loved it and it was on the top of my list of things I wanted to do in terms of costume. Skip to last Celebration in Chicago and I did get a plaque signed by Billy D Williams in […]

    A partial view of Red2 Studio where most of ImperialBoots works takes place and then some!

  • 3D printed Busts

    3D printed Busts

    The idea is to print a one piece of 1:1 ratio Chest+backplate complete with the shoulder strapping with crisp details and visual accuracy, to put on a XIBIT display bust with specific clothing and accessories. In this case working on both a Shore and Tank Trooper.

  • Home Office

    Home Office

    These days you need to have your home office, so this is where I do my digital work, prototyping, talking to workshops and suppliers, and build stuff. Of course I have some of my stuff on display including my very own Psittacausorus

  • Working with an industrial SLA 3D printer

    Working with an industrial SLA 3D printer

    3D printing has jumped leaps over the last couple of years, people have it at home and if you are lucky enough to live where I do, you can easily find “affordable” industrial printers willing to take on projects. SLA printer work with UV cured resin instead of filaments. This means the end result is […]

  • Wookiee Skull Part 01

    Wookiee Skull Part 01

    I have made a few Wookiees over the years soon #9 will start production.The one part of the wookiee that has always been more complicated to do is of course the skull; one part being fibreglass and the silicon skin that goes atop.  In my early years as an arbor builder I was intimidated with […]

  • Imperial Fleet Trooper

    Imperial Fleet Trooper

    you glimpse and you miss it in SOLO but that character has so much going for it I could not resist. There are no official CRL due to the lack of “clear image of the back piece”, However I am fairly confident this is what it looks like ; a mix between the death start […]

    Jakku Sandspeeder

    the sandspeeder was originally introduced by hasbro as part of toys during the OT release. 35+ years later they were brought back by Lego in an exclusive set and quickly seen in Battelfront 2. There is a visual queue in TFA when Rey plays with a salvaged Xwing helmet which is attributed to a sandspeeder […]

  • BUST a move

    BUST a move

    Last year I started a new project for collectors with the launch of a helmet stand. Then we thought a bust to display and contextualize a helmet could be something visually stunning so we started on that project. Skip a few months of back and forth , changes and a first pre-production batch I was […]

  • AT-ACT Helmet

    AT-ACT Helmet

    I have build many tankers (note to self don’t get too cocky about it you screwed up your last one’s legs) – so alongside the tanker I decided to go for the AT-ACT which is really only a helmet and a slightly different paint job on the shoulder bell. So helmet printed and started the […]

  • 3P0 Bust – PART 01

    3P0 Bust – PART 01

    Yes droids are amazing and no I was never the biggest 3P0 fan ; actually my preferred droids are K2-S0 (Rogue 1) and Chopper ( Rebels Animated) these two have amazing personalities. However as a builder/collector I cannot deny that 3p0 is a must have and I decided to focus on a bust. Got the […]

  • Wookiee Bust

    Wookiee Bust

    The Collector Bust is the new product I am launching soon. It is meant to be a new way to display props and contextualize it in their “real” environment. We are working on clothing and accessories to fit the bust to give a “real feel” when people drop their props on it. I though I […]

  • Death Trooper MK2

    Death Trooper MK2

    My original Death Trooper is still in Japan and with the current state of things around the world, I have cancelled all my travels. ironically although I do not have any events planned in 2020 anymore, I just felt annoyed without my zombie armor here. So I decided to go ahead and make a second […]

  • Naked Wookiee

    Naked Wookiee

    After completing my 6th wookiee I have pretty much settled for the mesh suit design. Straight extra long legs, longer sleeves with hand covers, extra large elastic band at the waist with press button for the suspenders. I have just added the boot covers and a skull hood to make the work easier. The sizes […]

  • Wookiee MK6 : roaar

    Wookiee MK6 : roaar

    A new wookiee is almost born. Improved technique means a bit faster, new hair really adds to the general look. I am reasonably happy with this one and it might very well be the one I keep for myself this time around. I guess the best part remains what I call the “wookiee zen zone” […]

  • Tanker MK5 commissioned work

    Tanker MK5 commissioned work

    Got an order in for a Tank trooper, received the BSP kit from the trooper and started to build, pretty straight forward work except for the vambrace the owner had already cut way too much …pretty much the last think to be done at this point …every build has its challenges.

  • RMQ Vader : when disaster Strikes

    RMQ Vader : when disaster Strikes

    I got myself a Ralph McQuaries Vader concept helmet. It was an opportunity and I thought why not. It arrived in ok conditions but immediately realized the inner gel coat was brittle and separating from the main cast, it became evident with the tip of the brow broke for no reasons. I could fix that […]

  • China Premiere ROTS

    China Premiere ROTS

    It was a long wait for the conclusion of the Saga, I enjoyed it very much. It was a fitting conclusion, there was a lot to love about it. The local garrison was treated to the Premiere by Disney, had a chance to induct our very first actor as a Honorary member, have a chat […]

  • Old Rex MK2 is a go

    Old Rex MK2 is a go

    Since I am a member of the Cathar Base Singapore, I decided to leave my Old Rex Armor to a friend there so when I am due for a trooping I do not have to lug my armor. However I do love the character so I decided to make a second set to keep with […]

  • Singapore CC

    Singapore CC

    December 2019, last travel of the year for Singapore comic con and first troop with the Cathar Rebel Base where I am now officially affiliated with. I took Old Rex and the new Rebel Fleet Trooper on the road for quick changes and bring some variety to the booth. Excellent welcome as usual by the […]

  • What Happened in Tokyo …

    What Happened in Tokyo …

    I flew to Tokyo for the Comic Con and meeting with the local troops. It was supposed to be a week-end of Fun, laugh and good old scaring people. It started that way, but lugging two suitcases full of gears in the Tokyo overcrowded transit system might not have been the greatest idea. I got […]

    Porsche Taycan Event  Shanghai

    I was extremely lucky to be part of the unveiling event for the new Porsche Taycan in Shanghai November 2019. These were two days of rehearsal and dressing up and down ( I got my TK dressing skills to 4.35minutes without help at this point)…. and 2 minutes on stage. Still a great experience; I […]

  • -IB- New Shanghai Studio

    -IB- New Shanghai Studio

    They say if you do something you love it will never feel like work… and it is true because although I probably spend 60 hours working on -IB- it does not feel like working. And between design contract, commissioned work and -IB- it is “work” every day of the week and week-end including when I […]

  • Old Rex Out

    Old Rex Out

    Old rex is a character strictly for fans; he appeared in the Rebels animated series and I loved it since then. He is the reason I let me bear grow so that I could portray him in a more natural way. Of course while trooping he is not the general crowd show stopper like the […]

  • Mando-Low

    Mando-Low

    So far I have been building heavily for the 501st and the Rebel Legion. The third club that I wanted to approach was the Mando Mercs. I must admit I do not have any urge to build a Boba Fett, and few other canon mandos have attracted my attention. However the great thing about the […]

  • Veers – At-At Commander

    Veers – At-At Commander

    At Celebration Chicago, amongst others Plak(c) I had signed, one was by Julian Glover, the actor who played general veers. I was going to buy the helmet to get it on display…but one thing leading to another, I eventually bought the entire armor. The build was easy enough until I realized that many of the […]

  • Shore Trooper Armor PT01

    Shore Trooper Armor PT01

    I have been eyeing this character for a while ; although I liked it I was always drawn to the Tanker more. However after building 5 tankers I felt I needed to “diversify” and the shore was an obvious choice. I decided to go for the captain version of the Shore because the colour coding […]

  • Shadow Guard ?

    Shadow Guard ?

    The SW EU has this character known as the Shadow Guard, similar to the red guard but looking more “armored”. I was not planning on doing this but then there was this left over Kit floating around that was the same price as just a helmet… but in pink. I decided to buy the whole […]

  • Red Guard Helmet

    Red Guard Helmet

    The red guard is not necessarily a costume that I felt I really wanted but the helmet has always been highly attractive to me. My theory is that the reminiscent cylon look of it is what sold me off. So I got an ABS kit and started to build. Not an overly complicated build, maybe […]

  • SHOCK TROOPER CLONE

    SHOCK TROOPER CLONE

    Always been a huge fan of the Clone Wars Animated and one of the costume I really wanted to make has been a clone trooper. It pushed that project back for years until now. Seeing that I am working on this 20/20 project and that I needed to complete more costumes, it was a no […]

    Wookiee Build 5

    With #4 now in Dubai, I started the new Wookiee build; I initially thought I’d take the summer to complete it. Then there was an issue with the mesh suit that needed some extra adjustments. Skip a week later and I am now in the CCG 2019 roster list as Old Rex but since I […]

    I completed the Old Rex costume almost two years ago, never got a chance to take it out; the Wookiee is too popular. No longer ! CCG Shanghai 2019 is the event that I used to get him out for the first time. Not sure if it will become one that often sees trooping sessions, […]

    In continuation with my current fascination for custom paint job inspired by the rebel Xwing helmet I thought it would be fun to make a backpack.

    What a great opportunity; traveling to Singapore, meet with 501st/RL friends and share two trooping together… one of which at Lucasfilm !

  • Happy Accident

    Happy Accident

    One thing I have learned from my design workflow is that I need to experiment to “stumble” upon the right design solution… and I apply that in costume making. I was not happy with the undersuit of my zombie trooper; the latex skin patches were ok but too many miss-match in colors and with the […]
