    I'm not that familiar with the nuances of ROTJ, but it looks great to me!

    Vader is too short! (Coming from someone who is 5'4...)

    Your Fett, especially the helmet, looks great!

    Thanks everyone. It was a blast to troop around and fans snapped my photos. I lasted about 4 hours and had to take it off. Chest armor is very restrictive and need a better cooling method

    4 hours is a long time. I try not to go beyond about 2-2.5 hours unless i really need to. It's a warm costume.

    It doesn't look like Vader is actually that short, but there is something about the dimensions of the costume that make him appear that way, doesn't it?

    The Fett definitely looks properly dimensioned. Good work!

    Looks good, not super familiar with ROTJ. Yeah I usually wear it for 4 hour shifts. After that its just too much.

    Congrats....
    Looks like a Korbanth / Sith Planet helmet I believe..?.?
    If you're looking to improve (which we all are), the upper cheeks should be a dark blue as opposed to the green.

    Weather your girth belt up a bit as well...its a bit bright. Needs to look like its seen a bit of action too.

    Thanks Level3Fett will do. I've been thinking of just dropping the rotj and going with a pre pro 2 style. Hard to find the certain pieces to bring it together though

    Right on. I have about 3/4 complete PP2 myself. I lack gloves, belt, and a couple other things. Once I get the ESB done, I can move forward with the PP2.

    Good job for sure, ROTJ is my personal favorite Boba (until the 1313 early type boba comes out in the canon movies).
    I always felt the designers figured out what direction they were going with the ROTJ vs the ESB outfit, more items/colors made sense other than the multi-colored jetpack. As a painter, as most painters will normally say, I enjoy the challenge of the ESB helmet to paint, but from a costume standpoint, the colors were kinda all over the place.
    Good luck with the improvements, it looks great...and 4 hrs is a longggg time.
