    Jul 7, 2012, 5:46 PM - 501st Approved! BH-6238 #1

    I've reached a huge milestone in my Boba costuming journey today. My 501st approval has come through and I'm now an official member of the Legion. I've been working on this armor for almost three years now, on and off, and it's a great feeling to finally have reached this point. As everyone knows, a Fett is never really "done" and I've already made alterations and improvements since these shots, but this is the costume as it was submitted. Thanks to all the members here who have helped me or offered encouragement along the way. Thanks to the builders, seamsters, and painters on TDH who have had a hand in this project, and finally thank you to all of those who have contributed their time to make the amazing resources on this site. Without TDH, this would never have happend.

    Looks awsome! I hate to be that guy (since you're 501st and all), but the side cape seems so clean compared to the soft parts (the jumpsuit and everything else looks super dirty, but other than the physical weathering of the side cape, it has no dirt).

    Other than that though, it looks fantastic! I hope my Fett will look that good one day!

    Thanks for the feedback. I don't mind at all. I received it weathered some from the maker and haven't altered it. I'm considering cleaning up the vest some since it seems a bit over done but I'll probably give the cape a little treatment too when I have the time.
