    Hi Shade!

    Welcome to TDH! Let me first say this: You're making this costume for yourself, right? Then don't worry what ANYONE else thinks! If you get enjoyment from making your suit, then you have accomplished you goal. Do NOT let anyone's opinion or example hinder your achievement. It's great to get feedback from others, especially positive. Your costume needs only to measure up to your standards. There are some folks who build suits out of cardboard and paper! And that's perfectly fine, becuase that was what they wanted to do. Please use all the resources here to get whatever supplies, materials or levels of detail that you need. That is why we are all here. Never, but NEVER get discouraged by someone else's work. There is some terific work posted here, and lots of people (myself included) who will help you in what ways we can! So have at it, and post pics of your progress so you can SHOW OFF your work!

    welcome!
    dude! dont dish yourself!
    we all got our own tweaks to the suit and thingies we are not happy with.
    one is not here to JUDGE anyones costume!

    only to aplaud to the creativity used and looking at it as an individual piece of art!

    you can ask for tips and constructive critisisme, but all you recive without asking are compliments and nice words from us here at TDH!!

    Re: Amazing

    Aha! I can help already! I'm going with the ESB style, so I went with a dark green welder's faceshield from RJSafety.com, I believe the model is 4118DRK Dark green. At 3.65 you can't go wrong! You can double check TK409.com on the part number. Another good source for dark blaack, if yo're going the ROTJ route is bobamaker.co.uk. He has great faceshields custom made to fit most every helnet, and he is highly reputable.

    Happy hunting!

    Re: Amazing

    I used a dremel to cut mine, its a shade 5 so scissors would not cut it. If you go with a shade 4, scissors will work.
    Just my two cents.........

    Welcome aboard Shade.

    I also recomend a Dremel. 1001 uses just like duct tape.

    Cut out my first visor the hard way and the second with a dremel. Lot easier and faster.

    I used a pair of tin snips. The ease of using a pair of scissors only with alot more strength.

    Re: Amazing

    Its yours and thats all that matters!
    Pratice makes perfect....
    Even Seeker who has a Jango suit that looks like it came off the set of ATOC's, isn't always satisfied with his gear and is continually upgrading parts to his satisfaction.
    Its the original SW passion for Fett and determination/patience thats gets there in the end...

    Chin up and keep on keeping on...
