    slave1pilot's ROTJ Boba Fett costume Version 2.0 WIP

    I'm happy to announce that my new Boba will soon be underway.
    As you may remember, I had to sell my Boba costume earlier this year due to financial hardships. Fortunately, things have turned around (slightly) and I can now begin Version 2.0
    I will try and make this one as accurate as I can and use the best parts that i can afford.
    I plan on posting lots of pics here and chronicling the build to include vendors and sources for found items.

    Let's begin with a picture of Version 1.0


    and the beginning of Version 2.0

    Can I ask what the size difference these gaunts are to MOW? I brought a set of MOW but they are too small for my arms and I'm not overly huge lol....

    Re: slave1pilot's ROTJ Boba Fett costume Version 2.0 WIP

    Thanks guys.
    My own costume is on hold because I have a commission that takes priority. I don't have my parts anyway, so it's ok.
    The gauntlets shown above were sent out to another TDHer that was on a much tighter schedule than myself- so I am waiting for replacements.
    Also, the armor above wasn't up to my standards, so it went back to the maker -I am still waiting on replacement set.

    On a more positive note, I dyed my Girth today

    I'm sorry for the lousy pic,
    but it's sitting on a few yards of grey Tackle twill that is waiting to be sewn by crazy4bobafett (the greatest seamstress in all the land)

    How did you dye your girth. And this thread is like my wet dream. Everything has the top maker's brand name: Fettronics, Fettpride and all the top names in the game. So very jealous my friend
