    Feb 25, 2011, 11:28 AM - How much for the Fett? #1

    I strongly believe that in the Empire no costume requires so much to build up than the Fett. A costume so pricey in details as the bounties claimed for build up.

    How much money would "the hunters" say to be put in everything including painting techniques, props, etc for an accurate Fett costume?

    Yep. Depends on if you want a budget fett or a premium fett. $1,000 - $4000. Another difference maker is will that person be doing some of the work themselves or contracting "ha" it all out!

    So a "Premium" Fett could easily make it around $4000-$5000. Many bounties to claim for the build up huh? Jajajajajajaja!

    Check out the thread in the Sarlaac Pit section: New to TDH? Read this about how much you will spend!

    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f22/n...l-spend-17421/

    It's got a ton of members talking about how much things cost them. My total varies depending on whether you want to think about how much I've spent over time, or the value of the current suit.

    As it stands now I've got probably $5000 in my current incarnation. That includes things like a $250 keypad on the gauntlet and $75 on 1 shin tool. It doesn't have to be NEARLY that expensive. I've just collected stuff over time that has added up quite a lot.

    Good Lord. I've known for a while that this was gonna be an expensive undertaking, but seeing the numbers just kinda hits me over the head. LOL Oh well. Anything worth doing is worth doing right.

    and most of the time its $50 and $100s but if you do your homework its totally worth the money spent...be careful jumping into stuff...stay WAY away from ebay. For the most part the stuff there is NOT what it appears to be...its worth waiting a little while here getting a quality part from someone who SPECIALIZES in Boba...to get the most accurate piece you can get besides the real thing.

    well, i spend 4000 € in my costume (1 euro = 1,4018 US$) but i dont count my time, the paint, the material and the many thing i buy for nothing because i m not satisfied by it !
    if you dont want spend money for nothing you must buy only the best ! It's big money in start but you save many money in the future because when you see the better costume you think "*** my Boba was not perfect" and you start to rebuild or rebuy each parts ..... and you finish by spend more money that you buy directly the best !
    Bobamaker making probably the best for Boba.
