    seems like this is a very popular concept in doing a kid fett. I am doing one myself and a lot of ideas can translate but there still remains a lot of questions. Such as where to get a vest , helmet and belts the right size not to mention the fett rifle and jet pack.

    If you need any help with resized templates just let me know I have a collection of kid sized armor templates just need to know how tall the new Fett is.

    i was taking that into consideration when i was making a friends kid a boba costume last haloween then i came to the conclusion that i'm making this for a 6 year old. just cover the big highlight pieces: helmet and armor, capture the overall affect but don't sweat the details too much. spending more than $150 on a costume he'll outgrow nearly all of within a year is pretty much foolishness. so i opted for cheap. grey sweatpants and hoodie for the flightsuit and neckseal, a trimmed up white t-shirt for the flack vest, little white or grey glove, and just skip the boots. i repainted a rubies helmet, made some trash can armor, ghetto gauntlets, and didn't even bother with the jet pack, no one at his school knew it was missing, and i gave him a old hasbro stormtrooper rifle. with all the outrageous inaccuracies, he still won first place in his schools costume contest. TAKE THAT little girl dressed up as belle from beauty and the beast!

    was thinking about using a soda bottle and those nifty Jolt cans into a little guys jet pack. Along with some foam core board. Still not sure what to make the little missle out of

    If interested, i spend 1,5 months to build the Boba Kid Fett (13 years old) and have found some good tricks to make it lightweight, more accurate as possible.
    I started with the templates found on TDH (great !) then cut into plastic (like trashcan tip). I only bought the helmet (Rubies). Everything else is custom made (even the gauntlets made with plastiroc on PVC tube).

    Have a look on : http://picasaweb.google.com/kilroyFR/BH
    (color of the picture is not very accurate (gauntlets are reds not pink), some improvements have been done since the first build).

    regards
