hey guys, i have a question for you all, did i do wrong or would i offend anyone by painting Boba Fett emblems on my Jango armor? comments or opinions welcome.
well, if you put boba emblems on the jango armor... that sorta makes it a custom. it's neither boba nor jango, it's your own creation. nothing wrong with that at all, it's just something to think about.
While they look really cool - it depends on your reason for your costume. If you want to join the 501st with it, any customizations will not pass.
If you want it for cons and what-not then I'd say have fun with it.
cool, i just want it for cons and stuff like that, but wasnt sure if anyone would frown upon it, thanks .
I'm no Fettologist, but the scene where young Boba picks up the helmet of his fallen father hints at young Boba taking his dad's armor. Obviously between Ep. II and Ep. IV the armor has undergone an evolution. Perhaps certain parts were damaged beyond repair, and others outright replaced. Perhaps some were upgraded.
Your emblems would, IMHO, fall into a theoretical category of what that evolution might have been - or at least one stage of that evolution.
If young Boba's adventures are ever chronicled in the comics, it would be interesting to then pattern the armor colors and parts after that. At least it would be canonical at that point.
very interesting, i like your point of view.
You could do what ever you want. it's your stuff.
it looks good
wow. thank you, its actually a dark silver with a mist of flat black. i was going for a ghost image look but oversprayed the black. looks better in peron. thanks fellas.
You definitely won't be offensive by doing custom additions. There are no regulations here that say you can't do whatever you want to do for your costume. But if you were applying for 501st membership with the costume, then it's a different story as the symbols are [deep voice]not canon[/deep voice] for the costume.
Yeah, as said before. Cool for a custom, but won't fly with the 501st if you have aspirations of joining.
I like the look of it. Great job.
i actually think that looks pretty cool...it would definatley be considered a custom...but very cool!
Just a thought here, since you're planning on wearing it to cons and stuff and being "501st cannon" accurate is less of a concern, how about some damage to the armor and helmet. Nothing extreme, just some scratches, dents, scoring from blaster bolts that went awry, etc. You could scratch some of the blue paint off on the high spots on the mandibles and other places. Like I said before, just an idea.
As has been previously stated, this is your costume. Trust your gut. I can't wait to see more pix of this. You've done a GREAT job!
I dig it. very classy in a way.
Hey Souhthern, thanks for the advise, i actully tried out a little dammage on the helmet and backplate a couple of days ago. i dont have much to work with im on a very very tight budget right now with wedding plans and all. but here are some pics.

the helmet by the way is a rubies, im saving up for a nicer bucket any recommendations as to who i should get one from?
How big is your head?
Go bkbt if you have a big head,
If you have a small head, I reccomend Fettpride.
Good luck mate!
Good job too by the way!
i was considering BKBT, do you know more or less how much they go for?
For that, you have to keep it out of the public forum. Everyone here knows the general price range and it's not that bad. Reasonable, even - considering the work involved. But since BKBT, FettPride, and others aren't licensed by Lucasfilm, they can't pubically post prices.
Shoot them a PM. They'd be glad to help out.
oh ok, thanx for the info, i understand some are fiberglass and others are resin, which way shoul i go?
