    Jango Fett Bust for TDH Convention Table Project

    After Comic Con we determined that we needed something with more impact for our tables at convention and decided that having a Jango and Boba bust would be a great way to attract attention. It is also good because it means no one has to leave their personal props at the table. We are starting with the Jango bust as it is the easier of the two. If you want to read more on this project, here is the initial thread:

    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showt...ighlight=jango

    The purpose of this thread it to track the Jango project specifically. We will be making an armless bust, WITH the stubby arena jet pack. We might add arms later, but at this point, we are going armless for ease of transport.

    We would prefer to get donations for this (and the upcoming Boba) project, but if need be, we will buy the parts necessary to create the bust. I hope that we can also feature the busts on the front page of the site, to give people an immediate idea of what they can create as members of this community.

    So far we have the following commitments:

    I know it isn't very exciting, but here is the manny we got for both Boba and Jango. They will be fitted with an armature to hold the helmet.

    And here's my Jango on the mannequin that will be used for the Jango Fan Table. This is a preview of what the end result will look like. The stand is adjustable.

    The best thing about this message board is how people band together to represent the best costuming community.

    11/19 - Small Progress update. Seeker has a mannequin and is working on the vest and armor. Ladysewforus should have a second mannequin by Friday and will be working on outfitting it with the jumpsuit!

    We are. Once the Jango is complete we will be tackling Boba. Hope to have bothe ready for display at Comic Con next year. We just got our approval for a fan table at Comic Con and will be paired up with the Mandolorian Mercs.

    Whewhoo! We have the tunic for Jango in hand! Sorry, but this picture is pretty rough (no iron) but We now have the canvas on which the rest of Jango will go! Thanks to LadySewforus for making the tunic!!!

    In addition, Cruzer has supplied the CC armor pieces and Seeker is currently waiting on them to arrive so he can begin work!!

    Re: Jango Fett Bust for TDH Convention Table Project

    This is the colour I saw when I was at The Exhibition with a RAL chart, so you can try to get it as close as possible, or not...



    I hope it helps you with the dye and the bust
