    WIP my ESB fett

    I wanted to post my ESB fett costume that I have been working on. I bought a kind of mixed ROTJ/ESB costume for a decent price off ebay around 6 months ago and have been working to convert it to a full ESB costume. So there are definitely things that still make it a mixed costume (blaster, flight suit, etc) which I will continue to change as time goes on and money is available. Here are some specifics about the pieces I know:

    -Armor: wickebeard (chest, abdomen, shoulders, and back)
    -Cod armor: plastic, unsure who made, hoping to replace
    -Jetpack: MOW
    -Helmet: FP? (unsure of who painted this but it looks pretty awesome)
    -Gauntlets: MOW
    -Gloves: bobamaker
    -Boots: caboots weathered and spiked by bobamaker
    -Braids:...should have some from woodman in the next couple weeks
    -Knee armor: balsa wood ****, hoping to replace as soon as possible, have upgrades to aluminum darts at least
    -Shin tools: Resin replicas, not sure of the maker, got on ebay

    -Flightsuit and flak vest: not sure, came with initial costume
    -Cape: ebay, TK(don't remember the numbers after)
    -Chest display: fettronics
    -Beacon light: made from batninjas tutorial
    -JP beacon and stabilizer: made by me, not quite accurate but they work
    -Belts: came with initial costume off ebay
    -JP harness: custom aluminum, made by myself (see my thread!)

    So I definitely know there is a lot more I could do to make it movie accurate (white elastic around knees, "elastithong" for cod, etc.), but if you notice anything or have any critique I am always thankful for constructive criticism.

    Looking good mate! Need to get yourself the ESB blaster, Stormrider on here makes a sick one. The jumpsuit needs to be a light shade of blue & weathered, but it fits very nicely!

    Agreed! Those are the two main things I plan to get as soon as I am able.

    Just a point i have about the knee armor, looks like the dart launcher blocks are on the wrong side of each of the knees.
    Helmet and boots look top notch

    Thanks for the compliments everyone!

    Beans, do you mean I should just switch sides with the knee armor?? I am really hoping to replace them soon anyways

    If we are being honest, your belt pouches look a tad on the large size. I'm thinking I may follow your harness thread...looks solid

    what i should have said was the dart launcher block is attached to the inside part of the knee's, ie the upsidedown "F" part, they should be attached to the other side, the "D" like shape side, then switch right to left and vise versa that should sort it or like you say replace them with some accurate ones. Hope this helps

    Definitely too big, they are not quite the right shape either.
