    Mar 7, 2012, 5:43 PM - Fianlly got my helmet and gauntlets back. yet not so good #1

    Hello TDH, it's been a while. I'm back in TN now, and I finally got my gauntlets and helmet back from a friend (now ex friend) you can read about it here: http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f33/s...roperty-35842/

    I find my helmet to be in this condition. only one cheek piece completely ripped off, no visor, the ranger finder also pulled off.



    my gauntlets are in a little better condition, yet I have to wonder if They're worth keeping. photos in a moment...

    Seeing a helmet like (even a rubies) that makes me hurt on the insides. Only a SFP looks good like that. As for the gauntlets they look relay short from front to back, like kids gaunts. They look like would work well for a custom girls mando.

    Yeah it kind of does, lol. I think it's too far gone to even bother with though

    the gauntlets look fine. The helmet doesn't look like there's much hope for it...

    Getting a cheap rubies helmet and modifying it or a budget helmet might have to be added to you wish list.

    Good luck on getting things back together!

    Your getting there bud but you still have a long way here's the list

    1. Buy a few pieces off a friend/ have a friend make one for you.

    2. Receive first product realizing you have been taken advantage of.

    3. Ditch initial product

    4. Sulk for a short while, start back with a vengeance

    5. Restart the collecting buying from top quality casters.

    6. Make it halfway through your checklist and wonder how much you spent so far.

    7. Calculate overall expenses so farr have a nervous break down

    8. Months later, Receive all parts begin attaching armor to vest.

    9. After dozens of trial and error finish attaching the chest armor.

    10. Finish attaching all armor suddenly realizing you didn't sleep and have work in an hour.

    11. Come home and sleep

    12. Wake up and admire your suit

    13. Earn the right to wear the suit with a job well done.

    14. Finally grow bored and sell your suit


    So your doing well thus far... :-P keep your chin up

    I'm a little late to this thread, but I hope you haven't thrown that helmet away. It doesn't look salvageable for Fett, but it looks useful to me. I've been helping friends build costumes for Star Wars Day, and I can't tell you how many times we've had to search for something dome shaped for shoulder bells or helmet parts.
