Well I am finaly done, I only have a few pics for now. I will add detaled pics of my suit now that I can breath.... this was the hardest 2 weeks.
I didn't end up doing the media thing w/Jeremy another member with a prepro suit did it.. My suit wasn't done for the Friday morning shoot...Hence the lack of updates in my original post.
I was done the Sut JUST before leaving for the Con. my wife had to pry me from the suit to go get ready and I stll had to finish up the RF top.
I DIDN'T even have time to do a test fitting thats how pressed for time I was... So it was ride or die at the con.
**EDIT I didn't even use stencils for the helmet, all freehand
well except the the straight edges on the kill-stripes.
My wife and bro helped me get suited up and all was going well till I had to but my vest on... Oops no slits cut out for my jet pack harness, luckly a security guy had a pocket knife.
then I had issues with the back plate slots a tad bit to narrow for the make shift rings I made but my bro figured a way to get it to work.
FINAL issue a snap came off the knee plate, thanks to duct tape all was good..
I only wore the suit for 3.5 hrs then I was done, the CON was okay..though I didn't even get to look ant any vendors..
I was stopped every 5-10 feet for pics, It was fun having kids scream out "look its Boba".
I had TONS of complements, I even had children wanting me to sign something cause they thought I was Jeremy.
Well on to pics...
Here is a pic right after I suited up for the first time!!
WOW flash does washout the weathering.
Here is the only other view of my suit and yes I will adjust the harness straps!!
Me and my friend/member, Darrell (Deebo27) and his son in his Chewbacca costume.
Me and the other Fett, Pre-pro w/ old MOW gauntlets...man are those suckers huge
I forgot his name, but he was a great guy and we exchanged notes... great suit!
I did have the Left knee come off after 3+ hrs in the suit. here you can see it below.
Now on the my fav pic..*Caution* My face is finally revealed... cover your eyes.
Jeremy loved the suit, and we talked a bit, he loves his TDH suit.
My Friend bought me Jeremy's book "Flying Solo"..
I will add to this post and thank members and vendors as well.
whew time to relax.... well till I want to up grade!
Oh, and yes I did do the Boba thong!! the ladies loved that...lol
