    It has Begun! 9135's ESB build...

    Boba has been one costume I never thought I would do. The paint is harder than anything I have ever tried to tackle, the build is expensive, the wear of it is foreign to me... among other things...


    But here I go. 2 Face costumes... First Vader now Boba. Both ESB, so it should be impressive together.
    My Vader. These will be a blast to troop in at the same time.



    All I have left is the boots, shin tools and toe-spikes. I may spend some coin on braids, but I may just make them myself as well.

    Here is the parts list so far. I like things accurate and made to wear.


    1.Helmet Fett Pride limited with all aluminum ears and stalk
    2. Neck seal Ladysew4us
    3. Vest Ladysew4us
    4. Armor Fett Pride
    5. Jumpsuit Ladysew4us
    6. Girth belts Fett Pride (used)
    7. Ammo belts BooBoo Fett
    8. Belt pouches Ladysew4us
    9. Jet Pack Man of War Studios
    10. Jet Pack harness Home Made
    11. Knee armor Fett Pride (Rubber)
    12. Shin tools ???
    14. Boots MOW
    15a. Blaster ESB Side arm Mojo Fett
    15b. Blaster ESB Resin... Man I want a new one.
    16. Gloves Galactic Bounty Hunter
    17. ESB sidearm holster Fett Pride
    18. Cape Woodman
    19. Chest display ???
    20. Gauntlets Fett Pride
    21. Toe Spikes ???
    22. Wookie Braids Woodman
    23. T-visor Fett Pride
    24. Gauntlet Darts Russ Rep
    25. Stickers ???
    26. Pack lighting ???


    I want to publicly thank Fettpride. Making this happen has been so easy, and your advice has been outstanding on this endevor. This is by far the coolest deal I have ever made in costuming. A True Win Win situation.
    You are one of the most honest I have ever ran across in this obsession I call a hobby. Your work speaks volumes.




    So now... I wait on boxes to start arriving. Then on to paint, build and wear. Whoo Hoo!

    I'm in a good place as well brother It has been a pleasure to work with you too, thank you

    I did just realize though, that I put the wrong accessories for your gauntlets on the table when I took the pic. I forgot you were going ESB
    Not to worry though. Parts have just been swapped for the correct "ESB" versions (Flame Thrower instead of Laser housing, and ESB Whip Chord Housing)

    Best,

    Chris

    For wookie braids, send a PM to Woodman. He makes his out of synthetic hair, and he makes a well respected product

    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showt...t-Drop-Me-A-PM!

    Or you can go with the more expensive horse hair wookie braids. For that more realistic feel, look. Woodman also makes them.

    Boba maker makes shin tools. In fact, he made the shin tools for the suit TDH put together for Jeremy Bulloch. So there's an option.

    http://www.bobamaker.co.uk/Shin%20Tools.html

    He also makes toe spikes. http://www.bobamaker.co.uk/Toe_Spikes.html However, he makes his out of resin. Some people prefer to make theirs out of aluminum. Another one of those "realistic feel" factors.

    And for boots, I'm sorry to say that you missed a very big run of boots by a member here. Jango_Wes. But you can get boots from evolution props. People have very mixed opinions on the quality of their boots and also their salesmanship, so read up before you make a purchase.

    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showt...volution+boots

    There are pics if you scroll down that link. Don't be fooled by the color of the boots. When you get them, they will be pale and practically colorless like seen in the pics. But you can paint them to look very nice and screen accurate for little money at all with this tutorial:

    I hope this helps!

    Today I got THE box. I have to say a little on this, as it strikes me.


    I have ordered and received lots of parts, lots of costumes and lots of stuff Star Wars related. Todays box blew me away. This box contained the Fett Pride armor, helmet and parts pieces to finish my costume.
    Simply amazing. From the packing, the craftsmanship, the care very obvious from this end I salute you FP.

    I will be taking pictures soon, but really, this is hands down among the top costume makers around. Fett is a complex build, parts intensive and quality depending. Fett pride nails it. Kudos.

    Ill get back to building and not gushing.. but I just had to say that.

    Heading to Japan? Wow.. Cool man.. Let me know, I am the GML here. We have a growing bunch in Oki and that is cool man!

    No.. Blasters in Japan are good to go as long as they are not metal. The base, I assume you are heading to Kadina... Is cool as long as you are not pointing and brandishing. Pretty straight forward. Cant do School events with a baster.

    A fine start here! Also for parts you could see Bobby Fett UK & Mojo-Fett for a harness. Theye also has make shin tools in the past. Bobby Fett UK & Mojo-Fett can also make aluminium parts (Beacon and Stab) to mount on your jetpack. Will look god cos you can mount your LED inside it give it the effect.

    You doing alot of work by yourself considering it your first time doing a Fett.

    Good luck with your progress. Always great to see these builds!

    Oki is off the wall on some things, boring as hell on others. I always pickled my liver there. I'm a Squid though, thats what we do there. White Beach is a hole in the wall. Kadina is pretty nice however. The base is huge. Plus you are close to Naha, the party district. If I could give you advice.. Travel as much a you can while you are here. Really. You are close to tons of stuff... Hong Kong, Korea, Oz, Mainland... See it. Its a blast!

    Never know, I may be heading that way some day. Seems we are trooping there more.
