    Hey, this section has been dead for awhile. I will try and living it and post some pics of my Boba Fett costume progress-

    First and foremost, my helmet so far. Its been a long process, but I want it to be right. It's a ROTJ theme, and I think it is coming along well. I hope to have it done in a week or so-

    Here is a shot of my armor. I used reference pics from MoM for the helmet and armor paint scheme-

    Girth belt, scratch built. I have a real mohair girth like in the mail, like used in the film-

    it seems to have something to do with the web address of the picture rather then the web page it's displayed on, I always have trouble with that here too, so I just post the link.

    Looking good! It'll be awesome to troop with a Fett!
    Are you looking to join the 501st once it's finished?

    Haha, depends on how good it comes out first. I forgot to mention that I have my jumpsuit and vest already too. I got them from Skygunbro, who makes awesome stuff by the way. I have my collar piece, knees, cod, and gloves in progress right now. Once they are done, maybe I will suit up with what I have, and get some pics. I really need to find some gauntlets for my next piece.

    That's looking sweet. It would be great to have another Mandalorian with us.

    Got my collar piece and helmet done now. Gloves and cod are still in progress. I got my mohair girth belt in and dyed. It came out very well. Still need to come up with straps for it. I just struck a great deal with a guy at TDH for gauntlets and a jetpack. He is a well respected caster. Can't wait to get them in and get started.

    Wow, can't believe I have been gone so long. Progress is still slow. I have my gaunts done and gloves. Almost finished scratchbuilding a cod piece. Have knees barely started. Need to paint my jetpack and come up with a way to mount it. Backplate is built but needs a lot of forming and attaching still. Got a new fiberglass bucket that I just started painting. Going ESB style for this one. Still need wookie braids, hip pouches, ankle spats, and boots. Once my cod is done, I may suit up for a few pics from the thighs up(no boots or knees yet:)

    We could probably help you there! :p
    Although, it might be cheaper for the $2 a package to go out to a Sally's Beauty Supply store and buy a pack of hair extenstions in the appropriate colors.

    Do a lot of research. Then you have to pic one. I sugest you start of with something simple and go from there.

    Save money, lots of money. Costuming is expensive depending on the character you chose.

    Haha, exactly. I am well over the $400 mark and I still don't have a completed costume. I built a lot of my own stuff too[face_worried]

    I found the easiest was a jedi outfit (especially when Ian gave me the outer robe) and it got me a lot of experience in many aspects of costuming before I choose my ultimate costume.

    (I still don?t have the money yet)

    There are a lot of web sites and friendly people that can help you make your own.

    Mandalorians lend themselves well to creativity.

    Yeah, that's all I've done so far is a Jedi costume. I've been holding out on doing a Clone Trooper because I wanna drop about 80 pounds before I do so. Otherwise, you'll have a fat Clone Trooper and I'm not so sure that would've happened! ;) Anyway, if you need tips on costuming, email me at r_crissman@hotmail.com. I would love to help!

    That is funny because I want a Stormtrooper outfit but I am not sure I am tall enough. It doesn't lend itself to too much to individuality but they are just too cool!

    I think the record shortest stormtrooper in the 501st is just over 5' tall so I think you're plenty tall enough. Talk with -KnightShade- about his summer project. ;)

    At C3 I saw a guy that was a Snowtrooper that would have looked better as Ram Man from He Man. Not only was he short he was almost as wide (not fat) as he was tall. He was a good guy and funny.

    Mandalorians lend themselves well to creativity.

    Where do I find them?? And how do I get them to be crative for me...lol.


    I thought of going to a costum shop and purchase things they don't want anymore from SW costumes...is that a good idea??? I don't know where to get a blaster or two.
