Well, I have begun to put together my Boba Fett Armor! This is my first try to get into costuming and hopefully into the 501st.
Thanks to WOF for the templates... The chest armor is Sterlite Garbage Can Armor and the Stomach is a piece of Sentra... By the way... I used a Dremel to cut the garbage can and it melted the can... so after I popped out the side of the can, I used a Exacto Knife to score the edges and with a little hand strength I used some wire cutters to pop out the armor!
Here's some pictures below, but i have a couple of questions...
1. Should I wait until I get the LED screen and then make the proper cut on the armor?
2. Does the vest I have seem like a good fit for the armor? Meaning do I have it positioned correctly? And once it's painted, how should I mount it? Should I wear it and then get some help?
I just need advice for my next steps... I'll be cutting the rest out next week...
PLEASE IGNORE THE JANGO BLUEPRINT SITTING ON THE TABLE it just happens to be there... it's not what I'm going for.
