    Spraypaint or an airbrush will dirty it up great. Other than that, it looks great to me.

    I think your costume looks really good. The only one thing I see, is maybe a little too much 'damage' done on the armor and gauntlets. Lessen up the silver areas a bit would be my only observation.

    For the jumpsuit, I went to the local store and bought Rit fabric dye and added the dye and some water in a spray bottle. Just remember that 'less is more' and start slow by just misting the cloth. After you are satisfied, wash the garment and you are done.

    Well, I think it looks pretty good. I would have to agree that the flight suit could use a little weathering.

    Looks great. Like the others said, weather the jumsuit, touch up the gauntlets, and then after your first few kills add your wookie scalps.

    Your Ab peice looks good.. but the left&right chest armour peices look out of proportion compared to the ab-peice and center diamond.
    And i'd say that you went a bit overboard with the weathering on the gauntlets...

    And yeah.. get som dirt on the jumpsuit..

    Everything else looks fine..

    ok, you got the costume... now I suggest to learn the character...

    don't just "stand" there... Boba usually just...stands there aswell... but he takes certain postures...

    I'd go and look ESB and ROTJ to see what he stands like when not doing anything (the ESB destroyer bridge, where he kind of crosses his arms with his gun leaned against the upper arm, or the ROTJ palace scene where the scenes are flippen...)

    Here is what I suggest to make a more canon Fett. Get some Yellow Zinc Chromate paint. Use this to lessen the silver on the armor. What I mean is color in around the edges of the silver like this:


    Next, dirty up the armor some more. Make the wheat symbol dirty by misting it with an airbrush or even putting a rust/black mix on your thumb and just rub it on there. The key is to make it look like it got dirty at the same rate that the rest of the armor did.
    Add some red back to the gauntlets. Then dirty them up as well. R_Boba has a great tutorial on gauntlets here: http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=8016
    After all is said and done get some Dullcoat or even Krylon Crystal Clear Satin and dull the hard parts up.

    Study pictures of Fett. Not only because of his stances but also for the details on the suit. I repainted several pieces of my armor because I didn't think they looked enough like the real thing.
    BTW, I would love to see the freshly dirtied jumpsuit!

    Here are a couple of classic Fett like poses that I use. You can never go wrong with the Jabba's Palace Fett stance IMO.

    well with an attitude like that you won't

    ^^^ haha, get it?


    well besides being dad. I'd say yeah, you definately need to go back and work on weathering. The yellow zinc color aroudn the edges of the silvers and i'd say maroon the gauntlets and black mist them with scrapes of silver, not huge blotches


    also. you need some wookie pelts

    Yours is not that bad! :thumbup You will be amazed at the difference after you go back and do some weathering. Knocking the shine off and the little details that I told you will make it look like a new.. err old Fett!

    WOW! That's a huge improvement from when I first saw it
    The suggestions I've heard are right, toning down the weathering blotches to defined patterns with yellow around the edges makes a vast difference. To weather the jumpsuit, just lightly mist around with black and browns, and go a bit heavier on the legs. Just do a search for reference photos and I'm sure you can make some shin tools froms scratch for now.

    Very impressive, you are definitely on the right track. Just look how I started out with my first couple 'versions' before TDH!

    it takes a long time to get it right... i "finished" my suit in september, and look at the difference from then til now:

    September 18th:



    November 1st:



    i've still got a long road ahead, but the progress is (at least to me!) very obvious

    i have a page up nitpicking my own costume... it might help for you to see the observations i've made on my stuff:
    http://tk7602.com/bobafett/evolution.php

    my only negative comments on your suit have already been said: the gauntlets look a bit "over-weathered", and the chest armor looks a bit big. otherwise though, it looks worlds better than my first troop
