    Mar 3, 2009, 8:25 AM - Esh's ESB Fett #1

    Well people, here it is! I have some fine tuning left but who doesn't right? Haha...

    I also still need to finalize a blaster. The one pictured is a loaner but I got to troop in this all this past weekend and was stoked. Thanks to everyone here that's helped me especially Wickedbeard, BEW Trooper, Darth Anibal, FettDad, Stormrider, Redboy3384, Wolfie and PredatorMV plus anyone else I left out. Oh yeah and my awesome fiance', Lauren for putting up with the many nights of me working in the garage and helping me get dressed and all that....haha! She's been a great sport and this con was great since she debuted her Padme fireside gown (last pic).

    Besides the blaster fiascos I have had a better time on these forums than in my whole 6 years of costuming! Thanks guys for a great experience so far!

    5'6" in real life but with the lifts Wolfie hooked me up with for inside my boots I'm about 5'11" with my bucket on. Why?

    I'm all about critiques for real! I know I have to get my jumpsuit altered about an inch or more in the torso area plus taken in. I had already taken in my vest too and still can go more. I lost about 15 pounds since lady sewforus made my soft gear and still plan on losing more. I look bigger than what I am since a lot of the gear is bunched up and baggy especially around my torso and legs. My thigh pouches should be a bit higher for sure which would take care of the bunching down around my ankles, etc...

    Yeah, I think we freaked all those people out. You don't expect to just jump on a trolly with 3 Fetts on it in Orlando do you? Good seeing you bro and thanks!...

    That looks sick Esh! I must have missed you at MegaCon. Was that from Saturday? I only saw Lego Boba Fett, but I didn't get there 'til around 3. The suit looks great.

    thanks man

    Get some lifts bro!

    There is still another .5 or so lift insert that I can put in my boots but they still aren't broken in enough for it to be comfy. If I got a 1/2 or full size bigger boot I would be golden...we'll see!

    Lookin good bro!!!! If i may, you could maybe hit your vest with some weathering. You have the same thing going on that I had problems with...vest is very reflective. hit with some light airbrushing & she will dull nicely.

    Way to go!!!

    Awesome ESB!! Sometimes I can't believe how the tide has swayed to ESB.....not too long ago everyone was on the ROTJ bandwagon.

    Crazy but I know...it's actually super dirtied up but with a flash it gets so washed and reflective. I'll work on it some more. There are a few other spots I need to revisit and weather more. Thanks! Keep the critiques coming!!!

    No, It's an MR bucket. All I did is fix the pinch and install a hard hat liner.

    Your rig looks great! Can I ask you... when wickedbeard made your armor what size templates did he use? (Assuming he used the WOF templates). I'm 5' 9" and I think my build is close to yours. (your pics give me hope I can pull this off ) I'd like to know for when I redo my armor. Thanks!

    Looks really good.

    Just a quick suggestion

    it appears that your helmet sits a bit low on your head. Probably need to adjust the head liner to raise it up a bit so we can see that awesome neck seal.

    Yeah, it's just my build. I have broad shoulders and a short neck like the juggernaut but my liner is adjusted perfectly for my line of sight. If I raised the bucket I wouldn't be able to see out of the eye area only the middle. Thanks for that feedback. I've been working with different ways of standing to help out with that.

    Not sure which one he used but I did give him my dimensions so he knew I wasn't slim. My gauntlets are a little tight because of all the material from my sleeve...I'll be fixing that too.
