    do you guys think that doing a custom mando first would be a good way to start?
    A custom mando and boba fett are two different things all together. One is very specific while the other has unlimited possibilities. It really is your own choice.

    If you were scratch building everything, and you are relatively new to costuming, a custom mando might be a good idea so you learn from your mistakes for boba fett. If you are just buying the pieces, you might as well go for fett

    thank you, ya you are definitely correct. My thoughts were that I could learn the weathering techniques and I am very nervous about painting and other aspects.

    If you take your time with this you'll look back and Thank the maker we stopped you from buying anything that came from rubies.

    One of the main goals I had when starting this thread was to prevent people from buying the Rubies atrocity. If we’ve only helped one person along the way I call it a victory. Good luck on your build and have fun. It can be a stressful process but you’ve eliminated a large portion of it by choosing to start from scratch.

    Thanks a bunch guys, i have decided against it and im going to go through this website to get a costume made, i have the funds for about $1500 and would like to keep it around there but like they say your fett is truly never done i may end up adding more and spending close to $2000 haha. Another question i have is would i be able to have this costume ready by April 17th?

    No disrespect intended here. But not everyone can afford to drop over $2000 on a costume. These can be found new on Ebay for around $400. With a lil time & a few bucks towards sandpaper & spray paint. I think it can be made into the casual Star Wars fans dream costume.

    What has been made pointedly clear is that the costume is not only highly inaccurate, but it also self-destructs after minimal use. Noone here is saying you have to spend 2k to make a quality fett costume. You can scratch build a fett outfit for about what it costs to buy a Rubies outfit. The difference is you need to know how to MAKE those parts and do the work. That takes a specific set of skills...the same set of skills you will need to ALSO redo large portions of the Rubies outfit. What many posters here have repeatedly said is that its far cheaper and better to make the items yourself versus reworking the Rubies outfit.
