    New to TDH and NEED HELP

    Hi guys and gals

    Delighted to be apart of TDH. I'm very new at this and need some serious help. I recently attended Invasion III in Dublin and loved it. So much so that i want a set of armor and be part of the show next year. If i'm being honest I'm not exactly an artist or sculptor so i'd never be able to make it. So i want to buy it. I'd like to buy it in parts but i've no idea where to get them from. I'd need to buy them fully done. Any and all help would be very much appreciated.

    Gerry

    Hi Gerry and welcome to TDH! Glad to have you.
    You mentioned "invasion" which sounds to me like a Mandalorian Mercs thing. So I guess my first question would be: Are you looking to do a standard Merc or are you wanting to do a Boba/Jango Fett? And if so, which version? (There's about 6 or 7).

    I would also recommend checking out the MMCC (http://mercs.firespray.net/forum/index.php) if you're interested in going that route. Sometimes it's a cheaper alternative to starting out in a full blown Fett as well as a 'gateway' costume to help you sharpen your skills on.

    If you're looking to do a Fett, there's plenty of people around here to help you out. My first suggestion would be to do some research first (after you decide what costume you wanna do) and look at others' WIP's (Works In Progress) so that you can see how they did theirs and what materials/methods were utilized. You'd be surprised at how much you can learn just by reading their progress and checking out their pics.
    Here's an example of how I did mine:

    Also, take a look around in the 'Cargo Hold' and see who offers what (you may have to do some digging as threads get pushed down).
    Hope the info helps you out and good luck!

    cheers for the reply RKD. Ill be honest i'll want the parts to be done by someone other than me haha. I had a look at your armor and its looks amazing. Are you still selling the parts???

    Probably gonna get a helmet first and then get the armor. I was looking at FettPride and Bobamaker. Both look really good. Im gonna go with an ESB Boba.

    Greysoul, welcome to TDH. I, myself have bought armor from RKD and I can tell you first hand that it's worth it! it's strong, flexible, and light. What more can a bounty hunter ask for?

    As far as helmets go, FettPride and Bobamaker are definitely big in the helmet department. Might wanna give Asok (who sells a FP mold of a helmet) and terminal Fettler as well!

    Hope this helps!

    Cheers Archaster777. Very much appreciated. I'm definately going with either FettPride or Bobamaker for the helmut. Im going through all the forums now for paint jobs for the helmuts. Gonna get the helmut first then buy the complete set of armor from RKD. Cheers guys.

    Re: New to TDH and NEED HELP

    Sounds great bro! Fettpride also makes armor but I don't know what his turnaround time is, you'll have to check with him to find out.
    Yep I still offer my kits anytime so just hit me up if/when you're ready. Thanks!

    Welcome to TDH. As far as armor...you cannot go wrong with RKD. He makes a GREAT set of armor. It will be money well spent, and the turn around time is quick. One of the best purchases I have made.

    Thanks Rich!

    And good luck on your build Gerry. Don't be afraid to ask questions (but do a search first, most questions have already been answered somewhere by someone and will likely be floating around in a thread somewhere )

    Have fun!
