Your suit looks great! Welcome to the 501st!
Good work Chris! Great Fett!
Spectacular paint job on the armor!
Congrats on your new BH designation.
Nice looking armor...Great job on it.
Congrats, looks great!!
Awesome Chris! Welcome to the ranks. :
great job! you really look the part!
Looking good dude
Congratulations, it's nice to see a recently completed costumes after all the hard work and money spent. I still have a long ways to go. I'm looking forward to the future and my own Boba costume and maybe joining the 501st some day.
Hey!! Such great news Congratulations Chris!
Congrats my friend!!! Your Boba looks awesome! Fantastic job man!
Hope my Boba will get as half as good as yours! ;-)
Very nice suit! Congratulations on your BH designation.
The only suggestions I can make are add toe spikes and hit the boots with a little gray primer to wash out the black a bit. Very nice suit though!
Oh and let's see the back of everything too. Rocketpack, etc.
I'll be popping the toe spikes on later this week, and the grey primer doesn't sound like a bad idea. You'd be surprised how much lighter the black is already, though. Camera flash really washes out the "dirt"....
Added a photo of the back at the top of the post. That braid that looks like I was playing "Pin the Tail on the Bounty Hunter" is now 6-8 inches shorter, so no risk of trapping it under the girth.
And, man! That thong makes my a55 look sweet!

Congrats!!! All of your hard work has paid off.
Congratulations, Chris! That's great.
I'm sure you will be a proud representative of planet Koneck'tikut.
slick. very slick
Looks awesome. One of the best Fetts I've seen.
Congratulations. That's some pretty stuff you got there.
Looking sweet man! Can't wait to troop with ya! Great timing too since I myself have been getting kinda burned out so in 09 I'm going to pick and choose my events rather than just doing them all... There's not really much in the winter months, but you may want to debut it at Supermegafest which we all attend(though not necessarily all in armor) Post up the the forums and say hello!
Congratulations, welcome to the 501st!
Sweet! one more member of the club. Congorats to you!
Happy to hear it!! Congrats, I still got two more years.
I hope I have a suit like that.. one day. nice job!
Congrats on the 501st
REALLY REALLY nice job man!!! A job well done!
Congrats man. All your hard work has paid off for this day.
I'm so jealous lol, looks great buddy
Beautiful suit! Looks fantastic! If you ever want to troop with the New England Garrison we have TONS of events if you're lacking in local opportunities.
Welcome to the 501st!
