    May 26, 2011, 6:25 PM - scratch built Rotj boba so far #1

    So last year I decided that i would finally make the cosstume I had always wanted as a kid, boba fett of course. Unfortunaley I didnt realize how hard it would be like most newbs. What I ended up with was a big hit but since then it has been staring at me, Unfinished and completly inaccurate.

    So I completly remade the armor using pvc foam and this is what I have at the moment












    and unfortunatley my rubies helmet....i know



    so guys what do you think? I know i over did the weathering gotta fix that. Any help or critique is most apreciated. thanks

    The armor and the gauntlet looks good. But I don't know about the helmet... You better do a scratch build one, this way you will be more accurate than with that Rubies.

    Your doing well,
    How ever Id suggest you look in to changing the visor on the helmet,
    but your of to a good start , and if you get the fett bug youl want to upgrade ato a better helmet

    i believe the lid is the most important part of the costume, if thats not right, the rest of the costume is let down.

    You are going to get the bug and will constantly be looking for more screen accuracy. I agree with the above post, the helmet is the most important part to get right. Good luck!!
