    COMPLETED "4 year old" Shiny Boba Armor, Jet Pack, Gauntlets & "Bucket sculpt"

    Sorry if some pics are missing or say there deleted its Photo bucket and there band width thing it's annoying and I'm probably going to fix it eventually.


    So I'm making My son a "shiny" Boba Fett suit for Halloween & some of you have already seen the Blaster I built for probably 5$ so here is My sons Armor cost of Maybe 20$ so far. Hope you guys like it.
    If you would like to see his "Blaster" I built for him go here...
    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=32046

    Cut out 4 year old sized stencils...
    I used 1/2" foam sheet's.

    Primed.

    First coat was a lighter green.

    Painted the pads... Then Hand painted the Symbols on...

    And this one...

    Here she is!


    Hope you all like it! I cant wait to finish his knee pads and start putting this together on a vest!

    That looks great! The foam looks like the perfect material to make the armor for a 4 year-old.

    Re: "4 year old" Shinny Boba Armor

    Ok quick update... I was working on the knee pads as well just a step behind...



    Shaped then primed...


    After sacrificing a few pens, I have knee darts!

    A few coats of yellow... Had to work it into the coarse foam...


    This is the result of that...

    Now add the Knee darts...



    Well there you go! Now all I have to do is figure out what I'm going to do about his Bucket and I'm going to start on his Jet pack tonight... Updates tomorrow! Peace!

    Re: "4 year old" Shiny Boba Armor

    That is so cool!!! one question; how is the spray paint not "eating" (for lack of a better word) the foam?

    Re: "4 year old" Shiny Boba Armor

    Your not the first to ask me if the paint was eating the foam... It is one of two things... They dont make spray paint as Toxic as they used to or different kinda foam..

    Thanks Everyone! I'm working on the Jet pack now as well as the Bucket!

    This looks very cool my friend! I wanted my son to have a Boba like me but the little rascal wanted a Jango! The foam looks spot on. I made my sons out of sintra and had a hell of a time making the guants and knees!

    Can't wait to see the finished kit!

    Different kind of foam. This is the "foamie's" from the craft store not the hard packing foam they make the peanuts out of. yes that stuff will get eaten.

    Thanks!
