Hello, so I've been viewing this site for sometime, and I've recently decided to be Jango Fett for DragonCon. My question is whether or not I should start on the Jet Pack or actual costume proper first.
Doesn't really matter, it all has to be done. I skipped around, whatever showed up at the door first got worked on. You'll find yourself waiting for runs to be done. Do you have a budget, or are you going to get all the accurate stuff the 1st time?
No real budget, just whatever I can get my hands on at the time.
I'm planning on making the Jet Pack out of cardboard/posterboard type material. Thank God I have some few months to do this (I'm used to working on a time table of a few hours).
Hey dude, I'm gonna send you a Private Message. I may be able to help ya out so ya have it ready for Dragon Con.
I would personally go for the rest of the costume first and let the jet pack be your final detail (a piece d'resistance if you will). who knows if I spelled that coorectly...
ANYWHO yeah, Jango was jet packless in the movie for a piece when Obi messed him up, and he is missing it in the Bounty Hunter game for a level or two, so hey it has been seen!
