Well I am the father of a very enthusiastic youth...a 6 year old, who is all about Boba Fett.
So what is a dad to do...I decided to try my hand at building him a suit.
I discovered this site on December 31st 2009, and spent the next couple weeks cruising the posts for ideas, tips and inspiration. (Wow!)
January 15th -I decided to start with a cardboard helmet (thanks wizardofflight). this took about 4 days (nights after work). Still need a range finder.
I was feeling pretty stoked at this time...
Next came the suit and (strene) armour....fun....
Jet-pack- opted to use the inflatable...after all he is just 6.
Looking back it is kinda blurry, At times things came easy, and at other times horribly wrong..
I didn't quite make my goal of doing the build in 30 days...still need a few items, studs and boot spats.
Now the boy is campaigning to have the whole family in a Star Wars costume for Halloween..
Big Sis- Solo in Carbonite
only 257 days until Halloween...Lord help me!
I would like to thank all of you here. There is no-way I could of pulled this off without you or this site!
Hat's Off to TDH!!!!
