Hello to all you BH costumers. I have been a 501st member for a little over a year. I joined with an Anakin EIII costume and am now finding myself preparing for my second costume. I have been reading on the forums for some time now. I have been debating on what to make next and recently made a decision to go for Jango. So, I figured I would go ahead and get started.
So, my first piece of my Jango costume was the gloves. I got these from Target as many of you have. I think they are the same price at all Targets at $17.99. After I got them home I cut off the buckle and took out the inner liner. They are not completely done as I am thinking about putting some elastic around the wrist. Here are some pics of the gloves:
I also landed a pair of hiking shoes made by Prada off ebay that just happen to have the accurate soles. I only spent $24.99! My plan is to modify them to be more like a pair of military boots. I want them to be lace and zipper boots. Here is a picture of the shoes and a picture of a military boot to give you an idea of how I'll be modding the shoes:
So, I'm just getting started and will be getting more as I can afford it. It might be slow progress but I want to keep track of it here. I am always open for advice and constructive criticism. A smart man learns from his mistakes, but a wise man learns from the mistakes of others. (or something like that )
