Hello all! Around this time last year, I decided that I wanted to build a Boba Fett Costume for Halloween the next year. Boba had always been my favorite Star Wars Character, and I was thrilled to find that there was such a wealth of information on the subject of creating his costume. I soon bought an Asok CC Budget Boba Helmet (may he rest in peace), and I was off.
I spent time on the costume throughout that year, learning how to use different tools in the process. Having never before attempted something of this nature, I was excited to be working on my own to create and to build. I was on my own with this costume. My parents were supportive (although skeptical and slightly befuddled) but did not offer me any guidance. I gained valuable experience in being independent: I had to make my own purchases, do my own research, and make my own decisions.
Halloween approached quickly. Marching band foiled my plan of completing the armor during the summer. Soon it was fall. I had little time left--and I kicked my production into gear. During these last few weeks, I painted all of the armor (only 2 layers each--silver and the top color). My grandmother, mother and I were able to design, and sew a flightsuit. Unfortunately, I was unable to paint the helmet.
I would like to thank everyone on the forum for their information, redkraydragon for his fantastic armor, Asok (RIP) for being an awesome guy who made awesome helmets, and also for being the best business man with whom I have ever interacted, RafalFett for his awesome stencils, and MOW for the gloves and belt.
Here are some pictures from the process:
