    New Guy in town

    Hello all my fellow fettites, lol... I am new to TDH although I have been reading and peeping pics all over this thing. I was like ok its time to become a member so here I am Rock you like a hurricane. ok now down to busines I have puchased a Boba bucket from a dude on e-bay called helmethead11117, now I know it probably is not the most accuret but its darn close and I must say it is not a bad helemt as far as a 150$ bucket goes. I also got a cheap set of armor made of sintra I figured I think I will start out cheap on this stuff because it's my first. But not my last I assure you. And if I screw up it's not really that big of a deal but I am trying real hard not to screw up but of course I did on my helmet (pics of all my work thus far coming soon) but anyway I hope to get to know you guys and hopefully can get some pointers and ideas.
    Thanks

    Welcome aboard, Andre. You will find that Fett costuming is not as much of a hobby as a sickness.

    Welcome!

    I agree - it is a sickness, once you start....the dark side will consume you.

    Its heavy duty indeed... There should be a warning at the beginning of the forum that say "Fett costuming may lead to empty bank accounts, loss of sleep, shortness of marriage and dating, and a hi risk of obsession!"

    well... there is the sticky post about how much you could potentialy spend at least. Maybe it should include those other warnings.

    When it comes to the wife, just bring up how much her wedding dress that was only worn once was, that set mine straight and now she helps me get the good stuff so I "wont have to" upgrade later... just so you know, this is a lifetime project.
