I'm new to the forums. I got it in my head a few weeks ago that a Jango costume would be a cool idea. However, being the geek that I am, I refuse to do it half-way and lo and behold, I found this site.
I have to say, I've been looking through a lot of the site and am utterly amazed by what you all have been able to create. I hope I will be able to create something of similar quality some day.
Anyway, just writing this as a simple hello to the Jango costuming community. =)
This will be my first foray into costuming of this type, but I'm looking forward to the experience (and probably the frustrations).
One quick question though that in my reading I haven't seen addressed yet:
How do you do the black lines on the Jango helmet? I've seen people's build threads about other parts of it but never that one.
Thanks and nice to meet you all!

Auto pinstriping seems to be what I have found most often

Most people here, such as myself, have been using 1/8" automotive pinstripping. You can get this at auto stores, such as Advanced Auto.

Ah cool. That makes sense. Is there a good way to ensure the height is consistent and smooth all the way around?

for the stripes I bought a 1m length of black adhesive vinyl from the local sign company. then i just cut the strips at 3mm wide and applied them by eye. make sure if you do this you have a sharp knife and a metal rule to get the lines straight.

Nevermind. I misunderstood an explanation.
