    Mar 6, 2006, 10:18 AM - My helmet: Coming along nicely! :) #1

    So I have been working on my helmet for about a month now (on and off) sanding and preping...


    yesterday I finaly finished and put down a coat of primer...



    I am so excited I had to show someone!!!
    I was going to start painting today... but its raining and the only place available to me for painting is the outdoors... so I will have to wait a day or so longer... more picts to come soon!

    Thanks!

    I am all fidgety...
    I am dying to paint...



    This is one of the more fun projects I have ever worked on... and the hardest!

    I was told its a 'mystery' helmet...
    I bought it before I found these boards... got it off of the accursed eBay...
    It does fit me nicely and it cleaned up better than I expected it to... so overall I am happy with it!

    Looking good so far, keep us updated, girl Cant wait to recreate your shot above, the first fitting.

    BTW, are you going for the Fett-man or a Fem-Fett ?

    Fett-man or Fem-fett?
    Meaning formed booby armor?
    HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    I am doing the costume almost 100% to Boba Fett's... the only difference being I will change the chest armor - NO FORMED BOOBS! I hate that look! But the armor will curve more over the chest instead of sitting straight across it...

    I am still drawing the preliminary sketches, I havent nailed down exactly how I want that to look - but I will post pictures once I have it!

    Cool! You may want to trim some of those fiberglass tendrils hanging out the back of the helmet though. . .
    Oh, wait. That's hair.

    Nevermind.

    Mine was not so pretty when I got it, but a lot of hours sanding got it wearable... I am going to coat the inside completely so I dont snag my hair...

    Ah...
    I will have to do something of that nature as well...
    or I may just put it in a low ponytail and braid the stuff and leave it hanging out of the bottom of the helmet...

    Bucket looks good! Letting your hair hang out the bottom is a subtle way to show you're a woman too, without the dreaded boobie-armor.

    I always thought it would have been cool if Boba had turned out to be a chick with some kind of vendetta against Solo.

    Looking good so far!

    Damn rain!
    I was so looking forward to doing some painting today...
    I really miss having a garage!
    living in an apartment (with furry cats) is not a good environment to be painting in...
