    What would it cost? Need help because I'm on a Budget!

    First things First! I wasn't quite sure where to post this! If this is posted in the wrong spot please do whatever you do to this thread that you do.
    (Move, delete, re-post.... whatever needs to be done.) And I will say sorry in advance!

    Now, I am fairly new to this and I don't have an huge supply of money, but I am willing to save up however much I need to over however much time it would take to get a good set of Boba Fett armor. I already have a complete torso set, I just need some things and was wondering how much they
    would cost. I looked for a long time in the Cargo Hold and got very lost and confused on what was what and so I decided to just ask instead of
    going to through hours of frustration and confusion just to find a few things.

    NOTE** It doesn't matter exactly what color they are (painted or unpainted doesn't matter either) because I have a slightly custom paint job, but
    Boba Fett stuff works fine. BUT! The helmet must be painted.

    I need:
    Guantlets: I am smaller, so if that matters now you know. And I think that you can get different stuff on them, but it doesn't matter to me what they\ include/ are made of, I just need a set.

    A Helmet: Like I said I am a smaller male, so If that matters now you know. I don't know really if a kid's size would fit me, I am in between kid's and
    adult, so if that means custom made (size) then include that in the price.

    Maybe* Leg Armor: I wasn't planning on using this and I know that Boba Fett doesn't really have any, but it would be nice to have a set because I
    feel it looks better.

    Leg Accessories: I was thinking some holsters and blasters. Doesn't matter who exactly they are modeled after, but I DO need this. Also, I need like a
    leather belt that has pockets or something like that, even just a leather band to make it look right would work great.

    Whatever you guys know off hand that sounds like it might work, or some places to look or people to ask would be great. I know there are certain people that make and certain people that just buy, and I need to know where to buy cause I don't really make the stuff. I can assemble it, but I can't make it from scratch. If ya'll know anything just post it!

    Thanks for your Time and Support!

    Don't know if ya'll see it to, but it is in html format with all the tags and stuff, not in rich text where you actually see all the breaks and paragraph breaks and stuff like that.

    Yeah, get rid of that HTML and treat it like a normal document. I got lost reading it and gave up >.<

    All good mate. Job done. Much easier to read now.

    Reply: I was planning on making a replica costume for £670 - £700. I am now up to £670 with the vest, neck seal, girth belt, couple of bits left for my gun, wookie scalps, paint and boots to go! If you want an accurate costume, be prepared to save up in the earea of £800. Even then, I have done 2 or 3 bits on the cheap by buying things and modding them myself.

    Best of luck to you.
