Thanks, John.
Was definitely a better finish than the first version

After some thought, it was time to make the necessary adjustments to the 2.0 version of the Sith Armor.
I also made a couple of changes to how things were going to work.

The original pieces, prior to modification


The plan was to cut a bit of length off the bracers so I had full arm movement.
Having gotten actual boots for this suit, I cut the main leg pieces down so it was primarily the armor.
The belt got some of the biggest changes as I took it from a single belt to a double and intended to add spacers as well as a new back plate for the buckle.



With the belt now finished up, I replaced the old version's tool pouches with a single utility pouch.
Went in on the buckle and painted the engraved design in Tamiya red.
Seeing how that turned out, I made similar markings on the bracers and chest piece.
I also changed out the gloves for ones that let me better grip the sabers.




After putting on the full costume, I decided to drop both the knee pieces and the 'spats' I'd been wearing to hide the fact I was wearing shoes.
I really like the end results here.
