Fett Fake on cosplay.com with TDH Members' Pics

    Fett Fake on cosplay.com with TDH Members' Pics

    I got a message from this individual on cosplay.com, who's member name is "Boba Fett". His public profile can be viewed here:

    http://www.cosplay.com/member/73846/

    I noticed that in the gallery of pics of "his" Fett costume, not only does he present pics of many different variations of Fett, but has pics of known TDH members. I tried to pm him through the site but his pms are inactive, go figure.

    Not gonna make a federal case out of this but I thought I'd point it out. I know how much blood, sweat, tears, time and money goes into a Fett costume and didn't appreciate this kid trying to pass off TDH members' costumes as his own. Just thought I'd share. Don't ever say Jodo didn't do anything nice for Fett.

    I know one of the guys that takes pictures and helps run this site! "EuroBeat King" You might want to contact him and let him know what's going on.

    Hope the info helps!

    I think the best pic on his profile is the one of the Boba without the bucket and it's somebody else....... classic

    I always hated to be called a cosplayer. I'm a costumer.

    Im just glancing at some of these photos and have already picked out three of our own, its almost funny how blatantly inconsistent his Fett photos are, one minute hes ESB then reverts into an ROTJ then morphs into a SE, just pick one and stick with it!

    Photo plagiarism is nothing new to this crowd and the boys here have learned to roll with it and arent stressing over dweebs like this guy.

    Calling him out on one in particular, and if hotlinking is disallowed, then please remove the link, mods:
    http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1480795/

    He's using a photo of the life-size Don Post statue, claiming it is him. I couldn't find the exact shot online, though I know that that IS a publicity shot for the sale of the replicas. What a jerk.

    Is this a toy advertisement?! It looks like an action figure for pete's sake!

    http://www.cosplay.com/member/93425/

    Apparently this is his other account, as his first one got locked or something... http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1446760/

    He blames his account being locked on Eurobeat King. Who is one of the owner/operators.

    I reported his costume to Cosplay.Com and made accurate reasons why this guy is a thief and a liar; those of you who have your costume up as his on there, please do the same. This is not the type of person who should be getting credit for things he didn't do. This is the type of person who gives Cosplay.Com a bad name.

    You gotta love the TK409 background If someone is going through this much trouble to act like this is his costume, he should use one picture only. And not have a picture with his helmet off

    I don't want this to turn into something it shouldn't, but here is a picture of him dressed as Solid Snake from MGS. He is standing next to someone else dressed as Boba Fett.

    Just so you guys know, he spent over $200 on "his" Boba Fett.

    I can't believe that, what an idiot. I know EXACTLY who's in a bunch of those shots. That's Darryl(TK-2177), from Garrison Carida. Darryl's suit is PERFECT and i'm actually insulted for him that someone's taking credit for HIS suit!! I'll let him know.

    Wow. Thanks for pointing this out guys. I have posted comments on the images of my suit to clarify. I really don't mind if someone uses photos of my suit, but to say it is THEM and that THEY built??!! Wow!
    Actually, I had to chuckle at the "$200.00" line!

    I reported it as well, but the best thing to do, for any of you who are members at cosplay.com, would be to start a thread in the Site Headquarters section. That will draw attention to it faster - also send a PM to "Admin" who owns the site.
    They take care of these things pretty fast - there's been plenty of instances of people stealing pictures of Japanese cosplayers and claiming to be them - it never works!

    I love how his costume changes every shot. Different backpack, guants, color on the suit, the helmet.

    He has a "welded aluminum blaster and jet pack" Those would be pretty darn heavy and this has got to be the RICHEST 17yo I know! Those Bobas are pricey!

    Re: Fett Fake on cosplay.com with TDH Members' Pics

    Look at what I've started! I reported him right after I made the initial post as well. What a loser.

    I also love how he has pics of a Fett that was supposedly taken at Anime Boston. I was there (unfortunately) and not only was there no Fett there but the background of the pic resembles no part of the AB venue.

    Re: Fett Fake on cosplay.com with TDH Members' Pics

    I think the reason his costume changes so much from phot to phot is that he probably doesn't realise that each one is different. If he has never built on then he probably doesn't know the difference between ESB and ROTJ. This guy is such a joke, he couldn't even research his subject before making up such a lie. If you are going to lie then at least be good at it !!!!!
