    Greetings Folks!
    As those who have read my introduction and first post are aware I am new here, new to the Fett costume hobby, and beginning a slightly different Fett kit. Specifically a MacFett or Scottish Boba Fett kit.
    Essentially a spot on ESB kit from the waist up and kilted from the waist down with the following variations:
    • The cape with be a Wallace or similar red based tartan with a contrasting solid dark green stripe
    • A custom British tan, aged Kilt belt under the ammo belt rather than the string girth belt
    • Kilt boots (WWII US 1941 garrison boots) w/ olive green spats, kilt hose and flashes.
    • A custom made Wookie faced sporran which roars when opened. (fortunately I’m 80% done with this already)


    The last item of that list, the sporran is already well along and will be completed this weekend. This will be the sporran MK I which is just a first stab made with craft fur, Sculpy pieces, and leather. I already have plans to make a better MK II with yak hair once I find a reliable source. So just for laughs here are some pictures of this piece of the kit which started this whole hair brained, idiotic idea….

    It'll be even better when I open it to get at my wallet or keys. I ordered a Disney Chewbacca Journal and cannabalized it. Now when I open it, it gives a nice Wookie roar!

    That was my wife's reaction. She said it was a bit horrific thinking about a member of the families face hanging off of a belt.

    Well, things are moving along nicely. I have my FettPride FPG2-RotJ lid ordered, a set of RotJ braids ordered from Woodman, an RF servo and light kit on deck from jc27, and a three hole Borden dental connector on order as well. I've dropped hints to the wife that an airbrush kit for my coming Birthday in July wouldn't be amiss either!

    what made you choose to switch from the awesomeness that is ESB to ROTJ?

    There were a few things actually. First I had to decide which helmet creator I wanted to go with. After much research, emailing and mulling it over I decided to go with Chris from FettPride. When I did I found Rubio95's spectacular reviews with fantastic pictures of the unfinished helmets and I was really taken with the damage that was worked into the RotJ as opposed to the ESB. Then I spent a few days comparing the two total costumes and I simply like the color palate of the RotJ outfit. There's more variety of color and I think it will look nicer with my MacDonald Lord of the Isles tartan kilt. which is largely greens, blues, with flashes of red.

    There are trade offs of course. For example I am far fonder of the ESB EE-3 rather than the RotJ EE-3. While I like the red color of the RotJ gauntlets, I like all of the different things hanging off of the ESB gauntlets more. It was most certainly a tough choice though.

    The damage is molded into the ESB lid as well from FP. Not nearly as much was on it as the ROTJ lid. I ordered both just to be safe,

    Another little piece showed up in the mail yesterday. My three hole Borden connector. Inch by inch I'm getting there.
