    Dec 16, 2011, 5:55 AM - ADVICE on found Jumpsuit #1

    Hi guys, I am looking to upgrade my Jumpsuit as mine is grey when it is meant to be blue. So I am looking at buying a BobaMaker ESB suit for just over 100. Or there is this one on eBay for 90 or so. Let me know what you guys think. Here is the eBay one:

    Boba Fett - Jump Suit - ESB / ROTJ - Star Wars Costume Prop Armor | eBay

    eBay: Hidden zip for using the loo, velcro wrists and ankles, 10 cheaper, 93.3% feedback...
    BM: Famous BM quality, UK Seller, Buying other bits from BM.

    Cool. Does anyone know the quality of it. I have weighed up the pro's & con's (have updated first post) and I can't decide.

    I think the main concern would be how well either would fit you. The ebay poster looks like he makes a good flightsuit but I would try to find someone who owns one to vouch for the quality. Other than that, it's up to you to give your tailor the proper measurements to make sure the flightsuit fits. Have someone else measure you and make sure they do so from the proper point A to B. I would try to find a measurement diagram online and confirm with your seller to make sure you have the right distances measured. I think LOANSTAR on here has a good diagram uploaded in one of his threads for the measures that he personally uses.

    My flightsuits are now made with a hidden zipper from neck down to waist, then a smaller hidden zipper from waist down to crotch (for toilet breaks) I just need to photograph one for my website.

    Cheers dude. We are currently emailing. And as you know, I need a lot of products and a lot of yours are in the cards... Although, all of the products I need, you both sell. >.< Life is so hard when you have two top quality makers to choose from *does more research*.

    For a 10 difference I wouldn't take the risk. With Bobamaker you know what you are getting!
