    WIP: Another Boba Fett from Mexico

    Hey guys, im not new to the scene and being a 501st member (SL) i know what it takes to have a good quality costume. I have a Vader Costume and i love it but I always wanted my own Boba Fett since its my Fav. Oh well here is my progress so far.

    I have a FG MH lid kit which im currently modding to fit my head



    I bought a few armor parts from Xfett and a Ladysew4us flak and neck seal


    Body suit from xfett too already weathered and fits like a glove.


    I bought a genuine girth belt at a horse riding store and modded it for a more fett look



    And bought a ammo belt from another 501st member


    Well on the way for a ROTJ or SE fett i think... do you?

    Ok its been a while since ive posted and here is a quick update. I have to thank Gabe from Evo props, the shin tools and visor got here in great shape, and earlyer than expected. I also got the other items like the RF top from Terminal fettler and i was soo pleased with it. It is fantastic. The cape i got from Kid Akira and the us diver belt from korn 300... now for some pics... well forgot to mention I made my own ears out of aluminum. I made the design in solidworks my self using reference images and my Misrtey helmet cast for the right size... here they are.









    Soo what do you think?
