Nice. Looks like it would be fun to make. I didn't realize there were three sizes of things in it.

Oh, yeah, and they have to be accurate or the reenactment police will be on your case.
I'm not getting into the world of Star Wars reenactment. It was just a one-off for a pal of mine. I'll post pics of him in full regalia when I get them.

Change of pace, kinda. Chewbacca's bag and bandolier for a reenactor.

Ah My Good Skeeter -

If I may be so bold, that would be "for a CosPlayer"
not a "for a reenactor"   

because, after all, since the Stare Wares franchise is off in the distant future, how could he "re enact" ?

 LOL  ;)

Not to split hairs, but it was a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, so it is reenacting, presuming the time continuum has a linear flow.

I work in a building full of nerds (not me of course) and within 30 second jaunt from my office I can find a light sabre, an x-wing fighter, a tie-fighter, the star ship enterprise, a communicator, and a sword in the stone (that is in my office, but King Arthur is absolutely real and will be back!)

OMG, mogorilla, I humbly stand corrected...
How could this consummate SF nerd have ever spaced out on that scrolling thingy, harkening back to the similar cinemetographical device used in the ancient Flash Gordon (Buster Crab) reels?

Ha. One of the many positives of Buck Rogers one the 25th century (okay Erin Grey and Pamela Hensley were big positives for a 13 year old) was having Buster Crabbe guest star and giving his name as Flash.   My dad,who enjoyed watching this and Wonder Woman with his nerdy son was shocked I knew who Buster was.   I pointed out that the serial was on real early on Saturday?s on one of the independent channels.   We watched some of those too!   

Great work on Chewie?s Bandolier Skeeter.   He was my favorite character.  I am 5?11? and have been since I was 12, have had a beard since age 13.    Big hairy characters are often my favorite

Thank you both for this wonderfully illuminating discussion. I thought Professor Marvel (may he thrive) had caught me out in a sad blunder - but Mogorilla showed a deeper understanding of the riddle of time.

I can just imagine the smack talk between the Trekies and the Jedi fans.

Capt, you have no idea.   Toss in Lord of the Rings vs Game of Thrones, Marvel vs DC and you get a better picture of my life in a building full of chemists (the only right ones, obviously), biologists, engineers and a few physists /mathematicians.

So, it is that glorious time of year, International Talk Like a Pirate Day is upon us.  Could September be a better holiday month?   You start with Labor Day, then the 19th is Internation Talk Like a Pirate Day, September 21 is Earth Wind and Fire Day (Do you remember...) and September 22 is Bilbo/Frodo Baggins's Birthday.   So, as in the past, I have hoisted the black flag here at work (in a socially distancing manner) and the celebration is a collection for a local no-kill animal shelter.   I am working on raffle items and have completed the big one.  This is a no stitching messenger bag that since my wife has not figured out how to block me from Pinterest, I found the inspiration there.    Other than a few rivets and chicago screws (as much for decoration as anything), it is all woven.

One more item to raffle off.   4 out of 5 Pirates surveyed (do not know why that scallywag Tom is so contrary) recommend Rum for buccaneers who carry flasks.

An outstanding job all around especially the stamping. Many thanks for sharing.

Thanks Johnny. This is my second try at a basketweave. I tried to take some of the pointers others gave me on the first and I do feel they worked and this one turned out nicer.
