Thanks so much Chewie and JawaKing in the Yakfinities thread. If you are interested, the spikes here are actually from a cheap set of false eyelashes!

First seen in two shots in the June 2017 Vanity Fair article "Cover Story: Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Definitive Preview", the glittering casino city called Canto Bight features a range of guests in luxuriant costumes. One such guest wears a sash and cape over what almost appears to be a militaristic dress uniform. No doubt he will receive an official name closer to the movie release.

You are too kind Chewie and GrandMoffHux14. Thanks so much.

Having once posed as Han Solo's wife to assist in pulling off a robbery that did not go as planned, Sana Starros travelled the galaxy looking for the smuggler so as to get her cut of the proceedings. When she eventually caught up with him, she became embroiled in the Rebel Alliance's fight against the Empire and in turn became a trusted ally of Solo and Princess Leia Organa.

The vintage Kenner Mini-Rigs line featured a range of vehicles "just off screen" that were smaller scale, one (or two)-man versions of hardware used by Rebels and Imperials in both The Empire Strikes Back and Return Of The Jedi.
One of the surprising omissions was a scaled down version of the ubiquitous Star Destroyer, so I thought that I would put my own version together. Using the Kenner naming convention, I dub this Scout Star Destroyer SSD-9.

* 5mm foam core
* 3mm foam

Wearing a black form-fitting costume rumoured to be designed by George Lucas himself, it is little wonder that Anakin Skywalker was so smitten by Padme Amidala by the fireside at the Lake Retreat on Naboo.

Given that I haven't dipped my toe in the vintage style for a little while, and being that this is the 400th custom that I've put together, to keep with my tradition of visting the character for anniversaries, I thought that I would try out one of Padme's most flattering costumes in the Kenner style of the late 70s/early 80s.

Recipe:

* Funko/Super 7 ReAction Firefly Kaylee
* some modelling clay
* Citadel "Chaos Black", "Elf Flesh", "Scorched Brown", "Mithril Silver" paints

It's been a cold, wet and generally miserable Winter's weekend here which has put a spanner in the works of getting a First Order concept TIE Fighter completed as the plaster which I have been using to make the centre ball in particular not drying nearly as quickly as I was expecting leaving the structure quite flimsy. I will complete it next weekend by strengthening the struts and adding the necessary greeblies. In the meantime, here is a quick WIP shot of it as it stands:

For comparison, concept art of the TIE Fighter appears in a few different places in The Art Of The Force Awakens:

Thanks Jodo - hopefully the completed piece holds up to expectations:

One of several concept art pieces for the TIE Fighters that the First Order deployed in what became The Force Awakens featured the familiar central ball but with additional weaponry, triangular forward facing wings and tubular engines deployed in the connecting struts.

Recipe:

* 5mm foam core
* 3mm foam
* household plastics
* plaster wrap
* modelling clay
* LEGO pieces
* Citadel "Chaos Black", "Skull White", "Space Wolves Grey" paints
