Alright I have given my introduction in the intro section, but wanted to post up some work that I have been doing. I have always wanted to make a costume, I decided that I would do Boba Fett as my first costume. In hindsight probably should have gone with something else that way I could see if I was any good at this. Some introduction to my project.
I have no formal training in sewing. My mother always sewed when I was growing up, and my wife has a sewing machine that she was given that she doesn't know how to use. I decided I could use this thing and make a costume. I leaned towards Obi-Wan, but my hair is to short, and I can't grow a beard. So I decided Lando Calrissian but figured some people might find that offensive (I am white, and thought it would be HILARIOUS). Anywho, I on a whim decided Boba Fett because he looks totally Bad-A!
I come from the car world and have been doing timelapses of my work on my car for several years. I decided that I would do it for this too. I have had a very easy couple of weeks because the wife has been out of town with the kiddos and I have been home alone after work. So below is my first video. I went yesterday and added an intro to several already made videos. I hope you enjoy. Only the first two videos have music over the time lapses the rest are just silent. The goal is to eventually add annotations over the top to show what I was doing.
I started this project by looking online a TON to see about high resolution pictures of Boba Fett. I decided on the color and went out to buy fabric. I got home and realized I really needed a "flight suit" rather than just pants and a shirt so I made a flight suit from really no pattern, but just looking at one I had on hand. This video I made a bit to fast so I slowed down the next few videos as well as changed the camera angle.
