    Feb 5, 2008, 3:43 PM - My intro and looking to start my Jango #1

    I have been regestered here for nearly a year now and realized that I have never made a formal introduction here. I'm Jason. I have been in the 501 for well over a year now. I have always had an affinity for clones. I am working on my third one. I have two EII clones and I am working on my Gree now. I would like to think that my work is up to par and I have a new project to research. I am currently in the reseach phase of a Jango Fett and Zam costume.

    My girlfriend has since we met wanted to do a Zam. Since I love her so much, I figured there is only one costume I could do to compliment her. So with that said I am officially starting the reseach phase of my Jango. As always I am going high end on this. So, with that in mind any advice that you have minus time, patience, and money I would love to hear. Jango will be a completely new experience for me. I have been armor for a long time. A cloth based costume is going to be interesting.

    How is sitting in this costume? How is the weight of the suit? visibility over all? Is it a black sheild of green one for the bucket? I will do my research, but I figured I may as well ask some simple q's to get myself started. Thanks again and I look forward to joining the ranks of some elite mandos here.

    Hey Jason, going from a seamless clone to a Jango will be a breeze for you I feel. Not as much fabrication is needed with the availability of good parts around here. The Jango costume is way less restrictive than a seamless clone.

    Greetings!

    Regarding the costume, it depends on what materials it is made out of. I don't find my costume to be too heavy, and I am able to sit down in it. When I am asked about visibility when wearing a Mando helmet, the answer I always give is "I can see very well horizontally OR vertically, but NOT both." The biggest problem is when a kid is walking next to me too closely ... I will be unable to see him / her.
