    Hello everyone!

    Having visited your site over the years, I finally decided to join myself. I've always enjoyed seeing the work and dedication of the members here in bringing everything from a worn paint job to a dent to life and with excellent accuracy. I got to see much of it up close with my friends ESB fett (JangoFettJr on here I believe) and he was always an inspiration of my costumes and how to really view them.

    I am no stranger to costuming, how long to assemble, research and costs. I spearheaded and pushed along for the Anakin ROTS costume, as well as having worked on the most accurate Tenth Doctor (Doctor Who) and various Star Gate costumes. I would be happy to share photos if anyone is interested

    My main reason in coming here is to construct a Boba Fett costume (surprise!), which I was interested in doing 4-5 years ago but funds were lacking. The version I really liked the most, which I have not seen often and never here in Canada is the white Super Trooper Fett with its unique design on somethings, and yet very Boba still. In recent years I have seen the release of several varieties of figures and designs and it really always stuck with me.

    I am looking forward in learning what I can on this as it will be my first helmeted costume, as well as hopefully doing a good job by you guys as well.

    Hey Justin. Welcome to TDH. Good to see you here. I used to post on SOTS. My screen name was JediMcD over there. Let me know if you need any help. Good hunting.

    Thanks guys!

    Fett Fanatic I do recognise the name, unfortunately SOTS has not been as active as it once was...we need another movie or something!

    DisposablHero, I am in Ontario....with Jango fett Jr and Jedi Doug making two of the Fetts in the local area!

    I have been emailing and pming part sources and everyone seems helpful so far. Hoping to hear from FettPride and get hat ball rolling, otherwise I am going to just have shows, gloves and a Jetpack for a bit :P

    I am pretty excited to o this costume, as I have looked though the forum and only a couple have done this, so I am hoping to do it and do it right!

    arrgh stupid forum lost my post....anywho...

    I used to be from ON too, was born and raised in St Thomas, ON. Just moved out here to SK about 3 years ago.

    As far as your costume goes, as long as you are happy with it you did it right. No one else can tell you otherwise. Good luck and looking forward to progress pics as you start getting more gear.
