Just wanted to ask the community a couple quick questions. I am new to the costuming/ prop making world and this past halloween I made a authentic Han Solo ANH outfit from scratch (Minus boots). But after doing that it sorta got me going with the possibilities of what else I could make. The first thought I had was Boba Fett, what better way to show off then with him?
So with that being said, should a first timer make all the parts form scratch. (i.e. vacuum form all the parts, make the molds out of wood/bondo, sew and paint everything.) Or should I buy each part separately?
I don't see it being an issue from what I have researched to make the molds for the armor and gauntlets. The helmet on the other hand I'm sorta lost on.
Is it inappropriate to make your own helmet vs getting a cast from a more major group like fettpride or boba maker? And if so who should i go through. (Meaning most accurate to ESB & ROTJ)
Sorry for all the questions, just trying to ask all you masters your best thoughts on this stuff.Pretty sure I will have more throughout this process, Hope to have a full ESB set made in the next 6-12 months.
