I painted my ESB helmet back in 2007 and since then have been slowly gathering stuff to complete my ESB Fett. I started building in November and have finally managed to put everything together. Suited up the for the first time tonight and got my wife to take some pics:
Painting and weathering was done by yours truly with rattlecans and acrylics. Here's a list of the components:
SgtFang Mystery helmet
Evo jetpack repainted beautifully by tecnoninja
Fiberglass gauntlets from little-monkey2007 from Ebay
Batninja vest and neckseal
Woodman braids, cape and shin tools
Scratchbuilt girth belt and leather ammo belt/pouches
Side pouches from Drago0013
Evo boots and gloves
The blaster is a mixture of different components. The Webley barrel was Sidewinder's, the stock by Woodman, the stock bracket and trigger/grip assembly was scratchbuilt by me and Fettdad helped me out with the rest of the blaster components. I got pointers for the paintjob from Spideyfett (who painted the amazing blaster for the Rebelscum Fett display). The sling was also done by me.
The sidearm was modded from a toy laser gun (I added a longer barrel and painted it like the screen used one). Looks nothing like the Pulce but since its holstered I figured it would suffice. I also made the holster myself. I do hope to upgrade to one of Mojo Fett's kits and an FP holster some day.
I will be trooping in this costume this coming weekend for a major toy fair here in Malaysia and hope to have more pics soon.
Thanks to Fettdad, Spideyfett, superjedi, woodman and everyone else who'd given me valuable advice and tips in my build as well as to the wonderful build threads for JB's ESB costume that provided me with lots and lots of reference pic. Special thanks also to Fettpride for putting up with my incessant bugging while waiting for my armor parts. You're an awesome guy, Chris!
TDH is the best!
