    Nov 1, 2016, 9:58 PM - Attended my first event! #1

    Well, my JP was not finished, my gaunts suck, my knees were not finished. No one but me knew or cared. Pretty much everyone loved me and no one was rude and asked why does Boba Fett have a beer gut now?!

    Nice job. It took me a few practice runs and about 3 troops to finally fix and adjust everything so it sits rights. But not to shabby for your first time.

    I know. I had class for work in Houston that day. Had to drive an hour and a half to get there got stuck in traffic and then wasgetting dressed with a buddy helping. One of my gauntlets didnt get pinned.
    It was a good learning experience though. I hated going without a jp, I felt naked! Lol

    Absolutely not! thats usually my main motivation to lose weight lol ...health?, BAH! i need to look good as Fett!! LMAO


    Also, a trick to keep the ammo belt over your belly button. add either snaps or velcro to the pouch backs and on the jumpsuit, it will never sag again. thats how i did mine

    That's a good idea Lou. I got dressed in such a hurry, I didn't even notice I didn't get it tight enough to stay. Plus, my left gauntlet did not get pinned all the way and came open on me. That's why I'm holding it against my gut. I had to get it redone.

    If your left gauntlet came open, you are 100% screen accurate. See above.

    Great costume! I am sure you were loved by all!

    If anyone asks me about my gut when my costume is finished, I will ask them if they ever heard of Santa Fett... and note that he leaves thermal detonators, not coal and switches in the stockings of all of the bad little children.

    yeah, but sadly, mine aren't screen accurate because I used piano hinges! Still came open. I fired my valet!
