    SHOWOFF: My first Boba Fett costume.

    Hello everybody. Ive been around the forum, but havent really posted or commented on stuff. But I just finished my first Boba Fett costume and wanted to show it off.
    Its made by Bobamaker (Thank you), and painted aswell. The cape and LED chest display from TK-409 do it yourself. Boots from Caboots. Blaster from Master Replicas limited edition.
    Hope you like it.

    I like it, but your look is a little hybrid.You wear parts ROTJ and ESB. You should dirty the fligth suit, the gloves, boots and vest, would give a more authentic. I like that helmet

    Great looking suit! I'm so jealous! I'd be afraid to use that Master Replica blaster though! Everything looks good but you do need some dirt on you!

    Wow, you guys are all such sweethearts! The only constructive criticism so far has been to dirty up the clothing... and one poster mentioned the "hybrid" look.

    Seriously, I'm shocked nobody has called you on that flightsuit. Why is it such a deep, sky blue? With armor that spot-on perfect, the mismatched fabric colors really clash.
    Sure, the boots need a little weathering as well, but the color is accurate and the toe spikes look great; the flightsuit, however, seems to have disproportionally large thigh pockets, and really needs to be bleached light grey.

    Like I said, the armor looks spot-on perfect, provided you were going for the olive-green ROTJ look. Brandishing the Master Replicas blaster, I assume that's the look you're going for...

    The ESB costume had a decidedly more muted greyish-green color scheme, which would better match the cape, gauntlet and ammo pouches you've appropriated from that costume.
    However, you'd also need a second sidearm and holster to complete the ESB look.

    The "hybrid" style can be a little off-putting for Fettophiles such as ourselves, but that may all be intentional on your part... however, I can't imagine you intended the pockets and pouches to look like boxes. It kind of looks like Boba is carrying bricks or something. You might want to soften up some of those angles.

    Thanks for sharing, and keep it up; you've got the right physique to pull off a really convincing Fett, which is more than can be said for some of the Americans on this site... ^_^

    Aside from the things that have been mentioned previously. I would suggest that you try to get your vest tailored to be smaller or at least try and bring it in on itself more in the rear. The vest is just too big and gives you a almost "bobble" torso appearance, which I too had that same problem with my first vest.
    The jumpsuit also needs to be toned down in color so that it's not such a standout color. It should be more of a faded blue in color.

    You did good on the do it "yourself" girth belt, however the color is off. If you are wanting a The Empire Strikes Back Boba look that is. It should be more of a "red wine" sort of color tone if that's the intended style.

    TESB's pockets and pouches are supposed to be rather blocky and boxy but I would suggest to soften up the corners to lessen the right angles that are occurring.

    I think that you did great for a first go and you have great enthusiasm. The suit only has a few things to change to make it truly great.

    Thanks everybody for the great comments. I will weather the soft parts and jumpsuit and do all the great tips you guys have given me.
    And as for the girth belt, I haven`t really color`d it yet. I found some ropes which I braided together, and then sewing the pieces together.
