Hi everyone, I would like to introduce myself....Hi, I'm Mike. I have been lurking these hallowed digital walls for the last month or so gaining wisdom and inspiration for my first ever costume build. I figured I could be a closet builder and hide in the depths of space until my brother did something awesome for me.
I have been building a budget Fett costume for the last month. I told my brother, who happens to build dragsters, what I was up to. He got so excited that he was like" You know, you should really build that helmet out of aluminum." Where I aptly replied, why don't you do it. He took it to heart. This helmet it based off of the Wizard Of Light templates. It is a fabricated aluminum helmet, and I cant wait to do the finishing work!!! It has taken him about a month to build. Best thing of all...He did it for free!!!
So this is props to my little brother. Super talented, and generous.
I plan on this being my build thread, and have a lot of my costume done, and want to show it with more of a progression. I am mainly building with 3mm PVC board. I have the chest armor, cod, gauntlets, and jetpack. built, and will be posting them soon as well. But please, enjoy the helmet.
