    Hey Bro, first of all, welcome to TDH! You have a pretty decent Fett goin' on there So, you've come here for advice on how to get your Fett 501 approved? That's the way I took it. Costructive criticism, not always fun to hand out, but if that's what you need to get to where you want to be, then here is my personal 2 cents. I would upgrade your ammo belt soon. In my eyes it is too large and bulky, the flaps are too rounded and the stitches fallow the round pattern. The belt should be strait lined and stitched strait. PM me if you want some photos of the belt I am making, I have used referance photos for the past 2 weeks while working on my templates and the belt it's self. Ok, next is weathering, your Fett's armor is all banged up as it should be, but* your flight suit and cape and gloves are "so fresh and so clean". Have you washed your cape since it was cut up? The cape should be dirty, especially near the bottom. It also needs to be tathered up. I see a hole in the cape, it should be frayed out more, that's why I ask if you washed it yet, the wash cycle will make it fray. Your flight suit needs to be weathered a lot. You're gona have to add in some tan colors to it as well as some dirtiness. I think of it this way: Light blue suit from ESB, over 4 years later and Fett has been working on Taatoine a lot in the sand dunes. Lots of dusty harsh weather and sun has weathered the suit, this is what should be captured. I may be wrong here.. but the gaunts look like they may be the wrong color, maybe too light of a shade of maroon. Others I am sure will chime in, but if it is too light, I think you could use a spray bottle with a mix of black paint and water and mist the gaunts untill they get a darker look to them. Maybe upgrade your wookie braids as well. Woodman here on the board makes outstanding braids. Oh, and you can't be Fett without a blaster. If you want a top of the line blaster, FettDad does a complete rifle that includes a wooden stock made by Woodman. It looks sooooo sick. I can't wait to get my hands on one. Oh, also the gaunt darts aren't screen accurate. That's all I'm really gonna nit pick about. Those things stand out in my mind when I look at your photos. I'm a newbie here and don't have very much of my costume done... but I have been watching Fett for 18 years and have been looking at tooooooons of photos over the past month and a half. Good luck with your upgrades, feel free to PM me with any questions you may have.

    Oh and just to elaborate on some products and who you can them from. Here's a list of the things you might consider getting or upgrading and a few people who make them: Also note that there are more makers of these products than that of which I list, but I do not know everyone here. These are the sellers that I know of that are currently producing products.

    Boots: You have 2 days to decide if you want to get on the Jango Wes boot run, cut off is Jan 31. Check the thread for details. Also Evolution toys AKA Evo have boots. An associate of the company is on this forum, they go by 'Britt59', they are also on ebay and have a website.

    ROTJ Cape: Woodman, he uses the proper material and the capes have amazing weathering from the photos I have seen.

    ROTJ Wookie Braids: Woodman, his normal braids are in a sythetic hair, but right now he is doing a mini-run made with real horse hair. Very nice

    Darts: Evo

    Ammo Belt: Booboofett makes a very nice looking all leather ammo belt. I can make you a screen accurate belt made from vinyl which is the accurate material used, with a plus, the ammo boxes are functionable.

    Blaster: Stormrider has a resin kit for the blaster I beleave. You get to assemble it and paint it yourself. Or As I talked about earlier, FettDad does the complete version.

    also, don't forget to talk to guys in your garrison about building your fett. i see that chris bartlett, aka tk409, is in your garrison; that man helped write the book of making an awesome boba fett costume.

    Definately talk to TK409 if you can, check out his website as well, hella info there. Good job on your boots, they look "good"

    "Your FettDad,Copley the Fett said you make some real sick blasters,"not to long ago they said make some bad blasters"what ever happen to the days when they say good not bad or sick???"

    I feel as if you are segregating me because of my slang..... Things have been "sick" for as long as I remember. Sick, sweet, Bad ***. it's all the same. "We" just don't want to conform to your standard dialect. Here is more info for you... Sick = Greater than 'good'. FettDads blaster don't look 'good' they look great.

    Sorry Fettdad, your Blasters are just good

    If you want my opinion, don't buy the spikes from Evolution! I've orderded them to, but I found out that they are bad made, they fall directly apart. Not worth the money I should say. If you want to buy his boots they're pretty ok, very light though.
    I've made my spikes from steel and welded them to the base plate you can screw on your boots.
