Discussion on Girthy! within the Boba Fett Costume forum, part of the Star Wars Original Trilogy Bounty Hunters category; Got my first piece of my BF armor today! The
1 inch nylon strapping.
Look at the ESB promo pics in the gallery of Boba Fett standing in the Cloud City hallway. You can see it very clearly.
BBF = Booboo Fett? I figure I can go to a fabric store and pick up something that simple. Or maybe an Army/navy store. Hmm.
It is mohair hopefully?
I just used some black leather I had laying around from an old Vader belt and punched a few gromets in it...works good for me.
It is indeed mohair. (Was that important?)
If you PM me I will send you the link for the screen accurate nylon strapping. I cant post a link to the auction, it's not mine. Be aware the smallest amount is 10 yards for $9.95 free shipping but it is the right stuff.
Just snagged 4 yards for $3.50. But thanks!
The weave on the standard heavy weight strapping is incorrect thlight weight strapping has the correct weave.
I was wondering if the stain has to be watered down (cut with water) to use as a dye or is the stain used straight from the can? I have a mohair belt that I'd like to dye.
Does the belt shrink after dyeing? Will it need to be stretched while drying?
