Long story short...
Born in 1982 in Barcelona (Spain), I love all the 80's and 90's pop culture, that's why back in 2016 I started making my Rebel Legion and 501st legion Star Wars costumes... After having 7 approved costumes, I decided to stop.
Throughout these years, I met many people from all over the world with costumes from Star Wars and other franchises, that's why I wanted to continue my mid 40's crisis with a GB1 costume.
I've spent some time lurking the internet for pictures and data to start my costume as cheap as possible, and I am very happy with all what I found. Won't be 100% canon, but I did my best to have a pretty cool costume.

BTW, no clue if I am allowed to share links from the places I bought my pieces (mostly Aliexpress), but I think this would be handy for those people who, like me, are thinking in making their own costume. So firstly, let me know this.

For my 3D parts, I have a Creality Endor 3 3Dprinter, but I ordered 2 pieces to a guy with a bigger printer, so I could have a one piece part, but unfortunately, the guy split the pieces so he could save on some plastic... So I basically threw 75 EUR, because with about 10, I'd be able to print it myself with better quality.

But let's stop talking and let's start with some pics I have stored. I am still working on that, so I'll be uploading pics whenever I can. Let me know if you like it and how to improve it, so I can fix it.

The picture is of mostly all the parts printed.

Talk to you soon guys!
