One of my favorite characters of all time is General Kael, from the movie Willow. I haven't been much of a cosplayer outside of making a couple of Star Wars kits, so when I decided to dive head first into C2E2's costume contest in 2017, Kael was first choice. I ended up grabbing the second place medal in the Armor Category. You can read more about how I made this costume in the Goblin Props Blog.
Designing and painting Classic Trilogy X-Wing Helmets is my dream job. Here are a few that were featured in the fan film The Lost Patrol, which you can see HERE. I also built the X-wing and Y-wing cockpits for the movie. The rest of the helmets I painted for other fans, though I'm not the actual kit maker.
Y-Wing pilots were also featured in The Lost Patrol. Again, I am not the kit maker for the helmet, but I did design and paint them. When I made the vest to wear at Gen Con in 2015 there were only blurry photos in which people could base the costume on. Since then, clear images of the Y-Wing Costume have been produced. I got pretty close, but now I have to make a more accurate version!
Y-Wing Flak Vest
Quality pictures of this costume weren't available until the Star Wars Costumes book came out in 2017. I remade my flak vest to be more screen accurate in preparation for Star Wars Celebration which was held in Chicago in 2019. Check out the Goblin Props Blog for the full story behind this vest.
