    Order of putting on costume parts

    I'm not sure where to post this? - but what order do you put on the parts for the Boba Fett costume?

    Jumpsuit, Boots, vest etc..

    Thanks

    Re: Order of putting on costume parts

    I don't even have my costume finished yet, but I think it would take an extra pair of hands maybe.
    My best guess: flightsuit-> boots-> spats-> neckseal-> vest(if your armor is already attached to it, it'd be easier)-> belts-> backplate-> knees-> gauntlets->cape-> jet pack-> gloves-> helmet. ???
    Hahah I really don't know, hopefully somebody with a completed costume who's got the order down to a science will come along and let us know. I'm also wondering. But I think it is just trial and error, and what works best for you. Again though, having somebody help you out probably makes it a ton easier.

    The couple times I have suited up, this was the order I found easiest. Needless to say, I did not do this order the first time through

    Re: Order of putting on costume parts

    Jumpsuit, neck seal, jet pack harness+scuba buckle, knees, boots, spats, shin tools, cod+kidney, vest+chest armor+braids, girth belt, ammo belt+pouches, collar+backplate, jet pack, gloves, gauntlets, helmet.

    As for wearing anything under the suit (besides my boxer briefs) nothing unless it's an outdoor event in the middle of the winter. Then MAYBE I'll wear a T-shirt under it...otherwise never. It's too hot!

    This may be obvious to some but it was very helpful for a newbie like myself. Now all I need is the parts!
