    Finally a few pictures of My long overdue Boba.

    I just received these in the mail yesterday from the photographer of the Orange County Reg.
    Here are a couple of pictures from SnowFest in Lake Forrest I did the Saturday after the 3rd season of Clone Wars premiered. Needless to say all the kids wanted to know if my jetpack worked.
    A great time and second event in my Fett, still tweeking it but...I like these best out of all the ones on the disc
    Ian in the C3PO was a champ, he did 3 - 1 hr stints in that. I couldn't believe it!!! I was amazed, poor guy watching him get into that. My son was blown away and really never had the chance to be a part of something like this so he was in awe, plus the first time seeing his Mom in her Fett too.

    @dsonik1 its ok your not the first to call me a guy.

    @slabfett.... well... the guy who's in the sort of Wampa costume brought it for the escorts (employees of Lake Forest) to wear and he forgot the helmet, so they make shifted the face makeup.... yeah I know.

    and Chris yeah about time, huh?!!! thank you! I had your holster on btw sans the Mojofett gun as it happens to be in Lancaster getting dirty LOL. Oh and I love, the holster!!! SOOOOOO much better!
    I hope your doing well.

    You'll get the sidearm back on Saturday, chick

    Why don'y you briefly go over the story of your Boba & how long it's taken you?
    Many peeps might find it encouraging and it might help some to not give up.

    Hey Christi, Your ESB Fett looks great, good for you.
    I really want to see that jet pack, I know how you are about detail.

    Looks great!
    I think you're the best-dressed one in the group.
    You just need to add the ankle spats, and it'll be darn near perfection.

    LOL at Nate... yeah Little Fett no spats on ESB!!!
    So the story.... *** wow well.

    Well, I was starting on Fett long before I was even a member here. Always wanted to.
    Before I even met Nate,John,Lewis and Dani.
    I had some pretty ****** armor,helmet & jetpack I picked up on Ebay and ditched back onto Ebay. Just aweful, Yuck!! Makes me wretch thinking about it now. I think the only thing out of that purchase were some very old first version ROTJ MOW's. Which were HUGE!!
    I know I said ROTJ, soo...... I think I joined here around 04-05, which makes you become a bit more aware
    Anyhow with that **** bye bye ( I guess that would have been version 1)
    I think at this point I was making Girth belts here & just starting my silent foray into Boba Soft parts not really knowing all the details as yet. One of my first Fett items was a first gen, Sci Fire Hyperfirm, which I still have.( I think it was John's personal?)
    Having helped put how many Fett's together at this point, sewing and assembling, and still not one of my own.
    I remember the Saturday doing yours Nate at the shop and Dani's at my house vividly....good memories!
    My first purchase was my MLC1 which is the jetpack I use to this day(Fettfullofdollars I think Painted) and the MLC sidearm/holster(remember those?)now we have the beautiful Fettpride and Mojofett! Then Daz's armor(which at the time Shunned had painted for me)
    The second version which was very near completion minus the gauntlets (it was always the gauntlets that was holding me up) I know there are pics somewhere with it all spread out on my livingroom floor,I was soooo close and I never wore it. I didn't have soft parts either. I remember Kid Akira asking me when I was going to finally get this finished.
    This was about the time I did my Mando Tattoo I think, helps me w/ my time line.
    I ended up selling it to Disney in Florida, so if you see the ESB Fett there, thats my gear minus the Jetpack & ammo belt(beautiful leather Pavespawn belt I bought a long time ago!!! One of the best!!!)Those were the only things they didn't take. At this point I was full swing into sewing all the soft parts for people and everything else inbetween (you name it) but never really had my jumpsuit sewn, I never had the time.
    Now back to square one...*sigh* at this point I was pretty deflated and didn't think I'd ever have a wearble Fett.
    Finances at a strain I yet again purchased armor from Daz... so this makes two full sets(minus gaunts *cough* chris)
    Sent it off to Nate to paint. Slowly putting it back together. Then our life got flipped upside down, I burned out on sewing, shut down my website of 10 years work and it all went into a bin for about a year, including my Fett.
    After all the personal nonsense my family dealt with last year, at Christmas time I pushed to finish Fett I had enough and needed something uplifting and to get my 501st # finally!! After all these years which to this day makes me laugh, when I go to a event and meet someone new and I'm a new face.
    Its like "oh your new to the 501st" yeah if you only knew!
    Almost 8 years later and there it is boys and girls.
    Thats about the rough and tumble of it all, I'm sure something is missing but.... time has passed and my memory fails me.

    Congrats on a great Fett. Only 8 years? I hope I'm able to finish before that.
