    the evolution of my Boba Fett suit- Pic heavy

    Hi all. Going thru some old boxes today and found the very first version of my Fett costume. Got me to thinking about doing an "evolution of" thread. I've seen other members start similar topics and I always love seeing peoples costumes go thru changes/upgrades. And it's neat to see where/why you started it in the first place. Plus, my Fett suit has definitely gone thru some versions over the last 6-7 years.

    So here goes-

    Version 1-('01-02) Had a DP95 helmet and always thought a Fett costume would be sweet, but probably untainable. Down the road I decide to try Boba Fett for Halloween project. -All scratchbuilt/found parts beside the helmet/ammo belt. Built the gauntlets, armor- Carboard, sheet aluminum.
    -Glanced at reference pics, but not capturing anything accurate. Was for fun.





    Version 2-('02-03) Had the bug from the first attempt at my Fett costume. Started researching on Google. Found my way to TDH, started me down a path that would forever change me(and my wallet).
    -Also found the 501st and had been accepted with version 2.
    -Still had the DP95, new armor(sintra) from Ebay. Modified jumpsuit. Bought inexpensive ammo belt, found Jango gauntlets on TDH, modified them. Bought jet pack on Ebay. Modified shoes.





    Version 3-('04) Upgrades a plenty! Get an MLC bucket, MLC v1 armor, New ROTJ gauntlets, and JW boots(which I still use, cuz their the best!)
    -Finally start looking at doing accurate weathering and paint.





    Version 4-('05-06) Big change! I go the ESB route with my next round of upgrades. Repaint helmet, new armor, scratchbuild ESB blaster(bought greeblies), new jumpsuit, MOW gauntlets, new scratch made gloves, new cape, new braids, new ammo pouches.





    Version 5-('07) Upgrade on the bucket. I go Sgt Fang. Very pleased with more accurate size. And MLC v2 jet pack. New paint all around for both of these. Pleased with the way they turned out. Bobamaker jumpsuit.






    Version 6-('08-09-current) Upgrades on newer MOW gauntlets(v2). Aluminum flame thrower. New 99centTaco ammo belt. New paint updates. Fitted jumpsuit better. Updated greeblies on blaster. New chest lights.








    And that about does it for now. Version 7 is in the works! New more accurate harness from FettDad, jet pack hooks and some other goodies cookin' up.

    Thanks for looking! And thank you TDH for the wealth of knowledge here and all the talented members.

    Absolutely amazing progression. Great example of "it's not going to be 100% first try but if you stick with it you'll get there". Loved the pics of the wookie and you dressing down the TK!

    Thanks for the comments everyone. Much appreciated. Thought this would be a fun thread. Glad you guys like it.

    I owe much to this boards many talented members with their contributions to the hobby.

    TehEl1te- I went from ROTJ to ESB, just for a change. I always gravitated toward the ESB colors a little more.

    Thanks again TDH and thanks for lookin'!
