I have been watching this site ever since my son asked for a Boba Fett costume to go along with his jedi costume. After not being impressed with the cheap and flimsy costumes I found on the internet I found this site and have been lurking ever since.
Edit: Here is the end result.
Without further ado, Here is my progress so far. I used a trash can for the armor and the WOF templates sized for my son who is just about 48" tall. This first picture shows the armor pieces after primer.
However, in my haste to finish the armor I never thought to ask my son if he preferred one style or the other. Of course, the following picture he drew seemed to suggest to me that I needed to do some more weathering and go with the red gauntlets. I sewed the vest from a Home Depot canvas dropcloth using one his shirts as a guide.
Picture drawn by son suggests ROTJ Fett and not ESB, so more damage is needed. Big Thanks to RafalFett for the reference material!
And now, with a dyed Cherokee jacket on clearance from Target (pants were in process of being dyed), a painted-up blaster and some additional weathering...
The transformation is progressing nicely.
The gauntlets are at home and are a scaled down pepakura build from SPC.
Thanks for all of the help you've given and that you will give in the future.
Observations and Comments are welcome.
