    Congratulations vitegeist. I can't wait to see this. I'm working on a set for my girlfriend in the same style as the statue in your avatar.

    okay, here goes:



    Boba destroys kitchens!


    With my stormtrooper buddy (i think his outfit is from ebay)




    check out the full album: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jaotte/...7622723832728/

    and a silly video of me dancing: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jaotte/...7622723832728/

    Thanks to CombatBaby, Darth Paul, FettDad, Jezebelle, and saint_nasty.

    If you have questions about any of the parts, send me a shout. I think the best part are the trashcan shoulder bells - amazing what you can do with a heatgun and some acrylic paint, not to mention TDH templates!

    (p.s. I know the jetpack is ghetto but it was a mad scramble. that's also why there are no back-on photos of it.)

    Looks good. Can you get the jetpack any higher. The video is dark and hard to see.

    Vitegeist, awesome start... now that Halloween is over, you can refine your suit and add the sections you missed.

    Hydra's is really nice but I like Vitegeist's in a different way. I think each builder had different goals in mind, just like the guys that build the custom mando armor. It's hard to compare two custom suits apples to apples. That said, the vitegeist build is my favorite.

    Hydra's is gorrrrrgeeeoouuusss! There's a lot more creativity, time, and effort visible in that one.

    I've been a long time Boba fan, but not nearly as committed as the lot of you.

    I wanted to do something recognizable for Halloween, and still do the hardcore costumers justice with some detailed and more accurate bits. It was a big hit!

    I wore it out to two clubs for halloween parties and designed it with that in mind. One of the club nights is a kind of tame version of a fetish night (my friend DJ's there)- and there were a lot of geeks who loved it! It also wasn't too warm, but was warm enough to walk outside for a bit in the crisp October air, though it was kind of hard to see out of the visor since I accidentally etched it a bit while I was trying to clean it!

    My friends and I passed a few jedi scum while walking to the venues. Full battles ensued. I even met a Han Solo and tried to disintigrate him!

    Anyway, yes, apples and oranges.

    It's ultra cool. If I had seen that costume on Halloween, I would have thought it highly original. Nice work.

    vitegeist, Like I said your suit is a great start... I know you wanted to get something out in time for Halloween, and you did very well for someones first custom Boba suit....

    I know that if you attempt another or improve this one, you'll be one to look out for.

    my post wasn't meant to offend your costume.

    I know life comes first... anyways I hope to see more of your costuming skills.

    Awesome job! I recently started my first fett costume (a custom so that I don't have to be too accurate) but when I saw yours I wanted to trim my armor down and make one for my wife!! and maybe my kids too! Great job you must be very pleased.

    Vitegeist, if you're still really wanting to have a jetpack, don't fret. I'm starting on a small run of kids sized jetpacks, which might be the perfect fit for you. Let me know if you'd be interested in one, and I can send you the approximate measurements.

    thanks Jango72, but I'm gonna hold off on further work for a while.

    mandalor - the armour is not very "protective" so it is missing its fundamental purpose (i.e. not very good at deflecting blows to vital organs!) but a piece could be added to the lower sternal part perhaps.

    Boba Pat: the boob armour is moulded somewhat but it's not exaggerated like the fully formed chest pieces. I think even a full chest piece that had slightly more subtle boobage would be less "in your face" than the classic femme stormtrooper chests.

    and thanks cal196 - it was tough for me having never made an armoured costume, but with the help from DH and the wonders of a heat gun and latex masking fluid, it came together nicely.
