    Jan 21, 2012, 6:30 PM - Boba Fett armor on Etsy.com, and talking about starting costume for me and my son :) #1

    Don't know if anyone else has seen this but someone is selling Boba Fett Chest armor on Etsy.com for 30.00 plus 9.00 shipping.

    Boba Fett Chest Armor by bobaarmor on Etsy

    I am new here to the forum and I am starting my own Boba Fett Costume as well as making my son's costume more accurate. Here is his costume currently, i want to get him an actual flight suit or make him one as well as make him a jetpack instead of the blow up one he has. Any suggestions would be great . He wants to enter the Star Wars Costume Contest this year at Dragoncon so i told him we will work on making his costume better.







    I'm also starting a Boba Fett costume for myself, I already have the chest armor but that's it so far.

    The bends in those etsy plates are pretty uni-directional. I'm sure you could do better on your own with plates cut out of Sintra (Expanded PVC foamboard). Same thing goes for the paint. It's pretty simple, I'm sure you could do a more accurate job than the ones for sale. Just read some of the sticky threads in the armor subforum. Welcome!
