    Jan 21, 2012, 1:13 AM - slave1pilot's ROTJ BOBA FETT BUILD *DONE* (big pic heavy) #1

    Hey guys,
    I'm currently doing a commission build of a 1:1 Boba Fett on a mannequin for a fellow RPFer.
    He requested a WIP thread, so here it is.
    THIS IS NOT A TUTORIAL
    I will not go into what paints I use or how I do what I do.
    Sorry, but this is just a build thread.
    Ok, let's get started
    Here's some of the parts we have so far
    You may recognize many of them

    I don't actually make the mannequins.
    The one I am using is from ebay, but I did have to cut and modify the arm and hand to get the right look
    Please disregard the jumpsuit, it is my Ghostbusters jumpsuit standing in until the real one has been sewn by crazy4bobafett.

    Ugh, I've been in Minnesota for most of this month with work and just returned today.
    However, I did manage to lay down some green before I left

    I can't remember whom the studs came from. I bought them in the Cargo Hold though
    The gloves arrived and have been added.

    The material for the vest went to crazy4bobafett before I left, and she is hard at work making ALL of the soft parts.
    She is the absolute best and I wouldn't have anyone else touch the soft parts.

    Did some more work on these parts.

    I had to stop because I broke the last bottle of paint I had and needed to order some.
    I did start making the boots grey today too
    here they were

    and here they are thus far

    Nate, How are you planning to attach the armor to the vest? Snaps, Screws or velcro?

    Screws.

    Put the studs on the collar and cod

    The chestlights are also in and the backplate is attached to the Collar via the Studs.

    The gauntlets are being assembled and prepped for painting.
    I also started working on the shin tools using real found parts.
    Stay tuned...

    Looks good Nate! I figured maybe I should chime in on the soft goods. Didn't know you had a thread going, sorry.
    The jumpsuit is ready to be dyed ROTJ grey today. Its basically pre pro white now. =) I finished sewing it as far as I typically go with it prior to dye and then finish off details once its dyed.
    I did have a minor set back sewing the neck seal I decided to sew thru my middle finger yesterday which resulted in a pierced nailbed and straight through my finger exiting to break the leather needle. Sweet!
    Needless to say today it feels awesome!
    As far as whats is left; vest, cape, side pouches and spats and all the final details etc.
    Other than that, right on schedule!

    Ouch chick!
    The middle finger is my favorite
    I'm trying to get the specs for the cape right now, so hold off on that until last.

    If you have pics, post them up (finger and/or jumpsuit)

    This is coming along nicely!

    Might those studs be evolution props? I wanted to get metal ones and I though they were better than the keyboard keys I have...

    Really can't recall who made those, they could be.

    I finished up the gauntlets (minus the bottom piece of the flamethrower that I still don't have)
    here's a few shots.
