You probably are tired of seeing noobs come onto the boards and asking a lot of questions (and trust me, you might be seeing me ask a lot of them).
But when searching for a holloween costume this year it dawned on me that there was nothing interesting at the costume shop, until it caught my eye... a jango fett mask. The thought rushed to my mind was "only if there was a boba fett mask there instead". So i went home and thought to myself "what if i made a boba fett costume for next year."
After walking around the house and talking to friends i made up my mind... I would be Boba Fett next year! Heck one of my friends thought it was such a cool idea, he said he would be Jango Fett, and would pay me for the cost of his costume and pay for part of the cost of mine.
I have always thought that the Fett man was the coolest character in the movies and if i was going to be him for Holloween I would have to go full force and not half-way try. I have been researching many sites for the past week and only came across this site in the last couple of days.
So now that i have bored you all, now here is the begining of my barage of questions that i have....
First, i have decided to work on the boba fett costume first because #1 it is mine, and #2 the Jango Fett costume will need "less attention to detail and weathering" because in the movie it looked relatively new.
Obviously, the helm is one of the most important parts, should i get it from ebay or should i just go down to the costume shop that had the jango helm? They had it priced at i think $50 USA.
I have decided that I am going to do the costume using ESB shots as refrence shots, does anyone have any good ideas on achieving likeness and/or links to sites or past posts that can help me when it comes to paint types/colors and techniques to achieve scrathing and battle wear? (i saw the mustard tutorial and looks intreguing)
This is all i can think of for right now. I think i am goin to go down to the costume shop and get a price quote on a Fett bucket just for reference (i hear they are pretty good at searching for stuff at the lowest possible price for good quality).
It is nice to see there is a good databank of information to search through with my project and thank you for sharing it and creating this source of networking.
Looking forward to your commments.
P.s. sorry for the length
