Well, my original plan was to have my BB-8 completed by the première. I however 2 weeks prior to the première decided to not rush this as I want to get it right the first time and not have to go back and re-do a bunch of stuff. I then made a quick decision to make the Finn costume instead and thanks to everyone around me I’ve finished it with 1 day to spare. Now after seeing BB-8 in action (5 times so far) I know exactly what direction to take and it’s just a slight modification from my original plan which means no extra costs, which of course is great. And in case you’re wondering I loved the film. It’s a proper way to carry the saga forward.
Anyway, I got to attend a red carpet pre-screening on the 15 of December as Finn with the press and who’s who in the industry. A very memorable experience to say the least.
