    Hey One End!... Cool build!

    I don't know if this was addressed earlier in the thread...

    Where did you get the foam sheets for your son's armor?

    How did the painted armor hold up?

    How did you shape it? Did it retain its shape?

    How did you attatch it to the suit?

    I'm going to start a Jango for my 10 year old and want something that can flex. He plans to wear it at CV and to school on Halloween. So I want it to be soft and somewhat pliable.

    Thank you!

    I just saw this thread, and I have to say it is freaking awesome. To make a costume like that for your son is just really awesome. I can't imagine how it feels for a child of that age to dress up as Boba Fett (I know how it feels to be a 26 year man, he he he ). I hope to make the children I have some day Star Wars costumes like this:thumbup

    I am absolutely floored at how awesome that looks, especially given that it's made of foam! You win major "cool-dad" points. My mom did some pretty elaborate costumes for me as a kid (she's a seamstress) but this is just flat-out epic.

    Well done!

    That is adorably awesome. You're an awesome dad to do that. It's great that the two of you can troop together. I hope that I'm as cool of a father as you are when I have kids. Outstanding work!

    Thank you guys, I'm currently in the planning stages for a custom Mando for him that he's going to help Me paint in the next few months since I have to get him ready for the Phoenix Con.

    this is probably my favorite costume I've ever seen made lol. this is the kind of thing your son will remember forever. The effort you put into this armor is fantastic, but the effort you're putting into your son's childhood is even more immense

    way to be

    Always brings a smile to my face to see kids in Boba gear, must be the greatest feeling in the world. Great work on this too.

    Very cool! I just got started on the prop building, and all I was able to accomplish for my son was to make him a Jawa. I believe it was a great costume, but the level of dedication you put into his costume is admirable. (that's me in the white, and my husband as the Raider):


    Congratulations!
