    Dec 10, 2010, 12:37 PM - Boba Soft parts #1

    Hey guys- Just doing my "do-dilligance" for boba soft parts, ie: differences, colors ets.. Id like to hear some preferences w/ the flight suit, fenix props brand etc. I have seen a few that look pretty good and i now the guys at fenix do a great job as ive ordered a few little things from them. Trying to take my time and do lots of homework. please share some thoughts w/ me.
    Thanks

    I recommend ladysew4us for the flightsuit... just make sure with that and your vest you have someone else measure you. I didn't do such a great job myself so I ordered it too big in spots. I'm lucky I know someone who sews and was able to finish tailoring the suit to me.

    I have a TK409 vest that I like alot too. It has the slits for the jetpack straps sewn in already. I also have their neckseal wich looks alot like the real one. I had it sewn onto my flightsuit to be more screen accurate.

    in my opinion, custom is the way to go for a boba suit. it's supposed to be pretty fitted, so getting something off the shelf will take a lot of work to tweak. made to measure is the way to go

    I used Cucblack after seeing a post from BBF, it fitted like a glove great tailor and honourble with regards to some extra's ordered and supplied. I nearly got crazy4bobafett to do a Girth for me , but i thought i'd have a go myself until i went to order from the states and was going to cost me $77US for belt and shipping (but have asked another quality provider to make one for me). Proabably going to use Ladysewsforus for my snoova build next year as she has made netted suits, but will see if my missus allows that one LOL.

    S1P suit looks pretty awesome, so if that can be any advice to take on board i would probably go with that, as i was unawares at the time she was doing FS ect

    Thank you very much.
    Here's a thread with some pics of my suit, and there's even pics of crazy4bobafett in her Boba costume as a bonus.

    Hey- Thanks so much you guys. LOL, my father inlaw is a professor there : ). I have pm in to crazy4bobafett and just waiting for a reply. I am not the craftiest guy w/ plastic but understand the appreciation for doing some things myself. I would like to purchase some armor already put together but paint myself..that being said, who do you guys recommend for armor? Not even going to attempt the helmet I dont think : ). Any thoughts are appreciated and again thanks so much for the help.

    I grabbed up a set of wickedbeard armor and gaunts, GREAT product, and made from metal, communications in great, as is price and time. Most of my gear is either wickedbeard or bobamaker. I swear by both of them.

    I have Ladysewforus working on all of my soft parts and Bobamaker working on my armor. Honestly, with many of the names being referred to in this thread, I don't think you can go wrong with them. In the end, it will come down to your preference but all those listed are artists of their own trade.

    for the armor, fettpride and bobamaker are my top 2 recommendations. my own armor is durasteel, who is long long gone from the group. if i was to get something new, it would be FP.
