    here is what I have used to make the spikes, 2 aluminium rods (don't know how to describe them) and a sheet of aluminium to make the stand (don't know how to describe it)...drilled and glued...
    tell me what you think...
    THX!

    Nice work Chewiepal! Every part of your costume has turned out really great. I wish I had the frabrication skills you have. I gotta do toe spikes myself now.
    I hope they turn out as good as yours.

    btw, I find some pics of the boots, before I convert them....

    Thanks! I was looking for a nice pair of boots with a square toe on that auction site- but no such luck...I will keep up the search!

    I find this pair and was a happy finding... only 15€...
    keep the search, surely you will find some goodies...
    and really, don't know why, but I don't fit anymore in my ewok costume...

    chewiepal- what are the red lines around the armor in the picture of your Boba Fett? Looks great otherwise! And you'll get it done! You may be the only Boba Fett who needs a cane, but you'll finish it. =)

    a vibro-cane can be still dangerous...jeje
    the red lines are there cause I have sanded the edges cause I don't like how I make them in the first time...when I have some time, I'll mach the armour color...
    THNX AGAIN!
