First off, I just want to say Good day to everyone! This is my first original thread.
I have always wanted to be Boba Fett, as long as I can remember. The pictures below were some things I did when I was 14. I am 23 now for reference purposes. Yeh I know cheesy stuff, but I look at these now and just laugh until I cry. I wanted to be Boba so bad, and I actually wore this outfit for a good two months straight. It was terrible.
Anyways, Now I am in a perfect place to get serious about this hobby. I have some disposable income and a ton of enthusiasm.
So today, and I know when I say this, I am going to catch some ****... I ordered the Supreme Edition Costume. I did this for two reasons. 1.) I want a complete costume before halloween. 2.) I have seen what some people on here are doing with it, and it looks like with the right amount of paint and weathering it can be a fairly decent starter suit.
I don't plan on this being my permanent suit. I will slowly replace the parts over time, until then I will spend the time before halloween repainting this costume. And maybe one day when I have completely replaced everything I will gift it to another Boba entering into this little society. Pay it forward...right!
So I have a few questions before I get the costume in the mail. First off, what are you guys using to paint with? Spray cans, air paint sprayers like for model planes? I have been through the threads a bit and everyone talks about colors and techniques for layering, but no one is saying the method of application.
Additionally, I have another question. The dental connector, I see what it is, but I am curious...does it serve any actual purpose other than just being a visual element on the helmet?
I plan to do a complete video of unboxing the Supreme edition and taking a ton of pictures, I know you guys love to joke on it. Especially the "sunflower" dent.
Until then fellas...
