boots arrived last week, finally got the straps made, velcro added and attached via binding post. After I find some good slip on shoes to insert into the boots, I will get new laces back on the boots.

some helpful information that I would like to share since there doesnt seem to be any that I could find on adding the straps to the mukluks, that I got from Daryl, a very helpful member of the CCG, using a soldering iron to melt the holes in the spine of the boot makes a nice clean hole without affecting the seam that is behind that spine, also a soldering iron CAN be used to melt a hole in cotton webbing, not just synthetic webbing.

Some photos after gluing in the face:

Then a selfie test-fit on the rear cowl placement:

Then I glued the rear cowl into the helmet:

I'm pretty sure I'm going to need to trim length off of the front and the back cowl once I get the armor on.

Got a great test run of this costume today while walking around Heroes and Villains. Was able to identify a few areas that will need some work. My kick plates on my shoes want to come off as they are hit by the tails of the duster. They are currently held on by Velcro, so perhaps more Velcro or even snaps are needed. Also, my rocket boosters are a bit top heavy, so when I walk around, they rotate and face the wrong direction. Not a problem as I can just glue them permanently into place. I'm going to wait and see where I stack up on approval before making any major changes as I'd like to reuse the rocket boosters if they are approved but the shoes are not, and vice versa. Other than that, the costume was hot and the fingers are a bit too tight, but we all know that costumes are hot and I can try to cut out more of the fingers. I do like that they are tight as I'm not having to walk around the con looking for a lost finger! So, if those are my only complaints, I'd call it a roaring success!

I received a lot of amazing feedback from people in this group, as well as people at the con. It was amazing to hear all the nice things you all had to say and I wanted to thank you and tell you I am truly touched that you take the time to read this little build log and go so far as to let me know you like my work. Makes it all worth it. Thank you so much.

Vaughn took this picture of me today:

If anybody else got any photos, please add them to this thread and let me know if it's ok to add them to my cosplay Instagram. Thank you.

Regarding approval, the detachment leadership of the Bounty Hunters Guild are reviewing everything currently and I have provided them any additional photos they request. I am hopeful to get feedback in the next few weeks. Fingers crossed!
