I've been costuming with my Stormtrooper armor for 2 years now and have decided to go the way of our most feared and respected Boba Fett.
From what I've been reading, the helmet will be the most ambitious project so that's where I'll be starting. I've decided to go with the BobaMaker helmet just based off information from here and other sites.
I'll probably be scouring for information from here quite often over the next few months so any "beginner" tips will be greatly appreciated. My goal is to be complete and in costume by DragonCon 2007 so time should hopefully be on my side.
A little back history. My only costume is my Stormtrooper which I have spent countless hours sizing and 'comforting' for wearability. I created a KidTrooper costume for my 5yr old son this past halloween for us to troop with. It was created from craft foam based off TK409's kidtrooper tutorial. He wore the Rubies helmet as it fit him very well with some minor padding added inside for placement and comfort.
Thanks for any help
