    Hi everybody!
    I'm brand spanking new here and happy to be part of what seems like a great group! I'm amazed at the awesome brotherhood (and sisterhood) that seems to be such a part of everyone pitching in with advice and assistance as we all reach for our finalized Fett goals!
    I'm just barely beginning my Boba Fett costume and I've started the heavy research that's involved with putting together a professional looking character because anything less would be a waste of time to me. I've started looking into his boots and the best I've found are the ones Christian from manofwarstudios makes. The problem is, the only sizes he still has available are 11 and up and unfortunately I have itty bitty baby Boba feet. The regular shoe size I wear is 8.5. Does anyone have a pair of Boba boots that are size 9 or 10 they'd be willing to sell me? (I know the smallest he ever made was a 9)
    If I have to stuff a 10 to fit me I will because I love those boots!
    Please let me know!
    Thanks!

    Ya, I emailed him and he said he's out of size 10s and he suggested I check here if anyone would be willing to sell me one of his pairs of 9s from when he offered that size.
    (Or even 10s)
    I can't get the size I need from him directly.
    Thanks!

    He already mentioned MoW Dom . I thought that Christian(MoW) had only sold out of 11s but I could be wrong since I haven't check that thread in a few days. Otherwise I would say wait a few days check out the board get your posts up and check out what the cargo hold has available. Boots tend to come up on there. I believe that someone had some boots up not too long ago that would possibly work for you.

    Great thanks for the tip TxFett!
    I'll check out the cargo hold...
    (still not sure the best place to go for everything)

    No problem at all. Welcome to the board as well! The sense of community you mentioned is one of the biggest reasons I love TDH so much. Feel free to hit me up if you have any questions regarding anything.

    I totally skipped over that part
    Sorry bout that, I would do what Scott said, look in the hold every day, be patient. If your in a rush you may be able to get a less accurate boot from someone like a Evo boot or CA Boot

    No problem.
    I think I'm willing to take 'er slow, be careful and get what I want so I'll keep checking the cargo hold.
    Thanks for the help!

    Another thing...
    Have any of you used resin toe spikes on your boots?
    I'm all about building my armor sturdy and right the first time so I don't have to go back and rebuild periodically.
    I figure metal spikes are a lot more sturdy but I'd be interested to hear about your opinions/experiences with either.

    Never used resin, the metal spikes are available and theyre correct as far as screen accuracy, and will stand up to use...Resin probably not. I wouldnt bother wasting $ of resin ones. Mojo Fett sells metal ones that are top notch
