It's awesome to finally join TDH! I started out over at the Mandalorian Mercs, but I seem to have caught the costuming bug so I thought I'd say hello here, too.
I'm Beth, and I'm an 18 year old student at Southampton University studying Archaeological Science. I'm gradually working on a Fett build - I'm more or less the same height as Temuera, but of course I have a different body shape. At first I wasn't sure if it would be possible to pull off a Jango kit as a female, but a good friend pointed out that Star Wars Chick had already completed an amazing Jango kit. That gave me a huge amount of inspiration and motivation - so Star Wars Chick, if you're around here, thank you so much!
Most of this will be scratch built, but I ordered a flight suit from Daz a few weeks ago which I'm crazily excited about, and I'm really hoping to get my hands on one of Asok's gorgeous Jango cold cast helmets. Does anyone know the dimensions for those? I'm in the middle of modding a J2P, and that fits perfectly - would an Asok bucket fit alright?
Anyway, here's some progress. There's not much, but I'll update as often as I can!
Here's the parts I've made so far. The chest plates and thigh plates are made from 5mm sintra, and the rest are made from 3mm. I think the curve in that belly plate is a bit too extreme so I'm going to reshape it this weekend:

Priming a few pieces:
Rub 'n' Buff plus some weathering:
I also got some pretty good dark blue leather gloves from fleabay for £2:
That's pretty much it for now! I'll update as often as I can over the next few weeks. I'm part way through ordering some leather bolo to make the girth belt, and I think I'm going to have to mod some Rubies Jango blasters (and maybe take the holsters apart to create a pattern for some scratchbuilt ones).
Anyway, can't wait to meet/chat to you guys!
