    I pretty much just spray everything with blacks and dark greys through my airbrush. Any old black will do. Focus mainly on your boots, pockets, belt bags and legs, (especially from the knee down. Here's an older pic of how mine looks. I've since went alot heavier on the legs with the weathering, but don't have pics.

    I think you are on the right track but I think you have a lot of work to go. The weathering on the lower legs needs to be a lot heavier and the weathering on the thigh pouch flaps needs to be a lot heavier. Remember that dirt and weathering don't show up in images all that well. They tend to wash out, especially in studio lighting. The fact that Fett's weathering is VERY prevalent in studio stills means that in person it would be almost overwhelming. The #1 I see with most costumes is not enough weathering.
