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

    Sitting in class right now, but guess what? The image he had of the Don Post statue that I called him out on -- he deleted it. Either that, or the mods did. Looks like he's getting the point that thieving is not something he should be doing. However, all the other images are still alive...

    EDIT::: And for being a 17 year old, from Missoula, Montana, how'd he make it all the way to Boston?! lol... geez.

    EDIT 2::: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1480815/ Here he says there was a Star Wars convention going on a few blocks from Anime Boston... can anyone check and see if there's NO validity to that? I'm guessing it's not true, but still... if we're putting the vise on this guy, might as well clinch it.

    Ya rly.

    But srsly, that's really lame that he is trying to take credit for outfits that aren't his. And I also laughed at his "$200; sometimes quality isn't cheap" comment. All I've bought for my costume so far is caboots, a visor, a RFstalk, and a helmet, and I'm at $330. Don't even want to think about how much it will cost me for full BM armor. So to say he paid $200 for that ENTIRE thing is an outright lie.

    Not like he's taking credit for any of my stuff, it still irks me and I feel for the other members here who he is ripping off.

    If blatantly lying like that helps him sleep at night, whatever then. But it's still wrong! This guy = sith spit.

    Took the liberty. Hope we see some proactive modding.

    EDIT::: Also did some googling, and as far as a "Star Wars con" in Boston around the time of Anime Boston this year, the only thing close was the Boston Comic Con on March 16th, 2008. No Star Wars con on the 21-23 of March.

    I wonder if this schmuck has the cojones to apply for 501st membership with someone else's photos?

    Ya never, know. He's already proven his stupidity knows no boundaries.

    Ok... Now I'm TICKED!! This clown just sent me this pm:

    "Hey "pal", if you noticed, i have the initials (PH) next to almost all pix in this file. it stands for photoshop, which means that i have found peoples pix and fix them, giving them better quality. THE POINT TO THIS FOLDER IS SO THAT PEOPLE FIND THERE PIX HERE, TAKE THEM BACK,ALL FIXED UP, AND PUT THEM IN THEIR OWN PROFILE GALLERY. ONCE THE HAVE DONE SO, THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO CONTACT ME AND LEMME KNOW THAT THEY HAVE DONE SO, THAT WAY I CAN REMOVE THEM FROM THE SIGHT AND HENCE ENDING THE DUPLICATE DILLEMMA. when i say its ME i mean that "I" and i alone fixed this picture and made it look better than the original foto. so b4 u go spaming and chiming in on My skill as a photographer AND cosplayer, think b4 u speak or blog. Tell Your Frenz."

    That, and he is going through and removing all comments which outed him as a liar.

    ... and now he sends me this one:

    "I said this once and ill say it again "FREND" wat i am trying to get u to do is for you to copy these pix over to your file that are of YOU and then after doing so, pm me so that i can remove them from the sight. K?Hey "pal", if you noticed, i have the initials (PH) next to almost all pix in this file. it stands for photoshop, which means that i have found peoples pix and fix them, giving them better quality.

    Is that a threat?

    He is a liar. Period. He did not "photoshop" any of the images. He stole them, as they were, from here in the TDH image gallery. They are exactly the way I posted them over a year ago. Geesh!

    I have to laugh at the line of the $200 Fett costume! I need to find out where I can get me one of those! I spent WAY too much for mine!

    Sheesh. What a baffoon! I'm sorry this guy's acting like such a jerk. Ok, that's it, bounty on his head!

    This is sad.

    I dont understand why people try to take credit for other people's work - especially on the internet where its very easy for the original owner/creator to find it and call shenanigans.

    Hopefully he will take them down.

    Oh yeah, B freakin' S! He was intending to pass those photos off as him in the costumes the whole time. With captions on the photos like "this is ME at an anime convention in Boston" (or something like that) you could easily tell that's what he was trying to do. In no way did he make it clear that he was "fixing the pix and giving them better quality".
    I think he's realized that he was caught in a lie, and that's why some of the pictures have been taken down.

    It is funny, if you go into his profile...it lists how many costumes and pics he had, you go into them, they are all gone. No pics, no nothing.

    Yeah man, owned. Either he's now scared of being exposed as a fraud and is trying to get rid of unwanted attention, or the mods over there had some due diligence and took affirmative action.

    I would say it's the latter more than the former. I doubt this individual has the mental facilities to remove images that aren't his.

    I hope this serves as a wake up call to him, but somehow, I doubt it!

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

    Well, I dunno if you all PM'd the Admin already, or what, or if they are taking action against the user, but I can't access the gallery of this guy anymore. Either that, or it's gone. Here's the PM I just sent to Admin on Cosplay.Com:

    Hello Admin,

    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=25134

    This is the thread wherein we are discussing this costume thief, and now he is apparently trying to backpedal and make excuses for what he has done. Some of The Dented Helmet's members have gotten PMs from him on their accounts here.

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

    This is the user's profile, however it seems you have already gotten notations about which images are offenders or have decided to scrap his account altogether. I cannot seem to view any images of his own. If this is administrator action against said user, then thank you.

    It should also be of note that the user has created another account, at:

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

    I thank you for your prompt action, and I know the members of our community are appreciative as well.

    -Xero
    Sorry for being so late about it; I was awake from 2:30PM Tuesday to noon today, and so I came home from classes and passed out. I would never make a good security guard, lol...

    Is this the end of this saga?

    There is deception in this world. Just like covering a scent.
    Very disturbing indeed.

    I may have this issue solved guys. I posted a complaint against him at this thread:
    http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=144774
    As you can see, the Admin has requested links to the pictures that he has stolen. We need to identify the images, and get links to them. Once I have the proof that we need, I'll send the Admin a PM, and he won't be a problem anymore.

    BTW did he just admit in this new profile that he was the same guy?

    "What got you into cosplay?
    Friends, anime, and manga, but mostly my anime club in Missoula, MT at Sentinel trying out new alias, am also known as Boba Fett."

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

    We all thinnk nothing of posting pics of ourselves and our costumes. It's part of the deal. We go to cons, have pics taken, and view them on line. Hell, there are pics of me on the D*con from the past few years.

    You really think nothing of it, untill it shows up in an unexpected place or context. It's always a bit odd when you find your pics posted on someone elses site. You wonder what the interest is, why they are using your pictures. It's just a tad on the wierd side when someone would try to claim the pictures to be of them.

    I know this sucks, and this guy is a moron for stealing pics and trying to claim them as his costume. As for his excuse... gimme a break.

    It's over guys. Just got a PM from Cosplay.Com Admin:

    Hi,

    Thanks for the report. Both accounts have been banned, as well as the IP associated with it. If any other images pop up under a similar situation please PM me and we'll look into it.

    We rely on user reports for infringement on a photo-by-photo basis, but in cases where an entire account or accounts infringes it's usually easiest to send the evidence to me personally.
    Forward Message
    Scratch one up for us? I also have his myspace account, so if anyone wants it... or do you think we should recommend he come visit us so he can ACTUALLY build his Fett? lol
