    Anyone here on a budget been successful at taking a set of coveralls and converting them into a Boba Fett flight suit? I was considering going that route and wanted to know if some of you guys had any luck with that method. Would like to see pics if it worked out for ya!

    I did that on my first Fett, bought 2 pairs using the second pair for a material source for the short sleeves and pockets etc.
    With mine, I removed the collar and any external pockets, the rest I left as is. Don't have any photos atm sorry

    What do you guys think about these?

    CC14 100% Cotton Coverall, Concealed Snap Front ( 5 Colors)

    Maybe the white cotton ones? So they will take the dye. Since it is a cotton twill, extra material for modding the suit will be easy to find.

    MAKE SURE it's either the color you want or is 100% cotton so it will take dye/ fade well for weathering. I got a short sleeve pair of coveralls and found a fabric match and made sleeves but it was such a hassle to weather since it was a cotton/poly blend. I had to use white and gray rattlecans to fade it to the correct ESB blue.
