Hey everyone, I'm new here.
I've always loved Boba Fett and have recently decided to start on my costume project for this summer!
Fistly, I need to get a helmet.
I researched and found out that the DP helmets are the most common and accurate, but they do warp...am I correct?
Therefore, I'm either going to buy a DP helmet and reinforce it somehow, repaint it and detail it better (like many of you have done!)...or...I'm also curious about these fiberglass helmets some of you have displayed here. I was wondering if anyone knew how to cast a FG helmet so I could do it myself, or whether someone could do it for me (no painting required) and for what price. Or maybe someone could cast me a helmet out of a mould they already own, out of some plastic? (as I've seen here as well!)
I have read the newbie faq, and I hope I'm not asking anything "illegal" here. I was just wondering since the fiberglass helmets look amazing!!
If that's not an option, I'm off to look on ebay for a DP helmet. Or maybe someone here has one they'd like to sell to me? Oh yeah, and I also realized that there are different prodution years for the DP helmet. What are the differences? And which year is the best, and the one I should buy?
Lastly, I'll also need some armour.
I read that Sintra works well, but I heard aluminum is good too. Comments? And is there anywhere I could get some lifesize templates to print out by any chance?
Thanks alot in advace guys!!
