    May 3, 2016, 12:26 PM - Jango Fett for Work #1

    Last Friday my job announced that we will be having a Star Wars day tomorrow May the 4th, so over the weekend I have been working on this Jango Fett costume for it.
    Now the costume is not very accurate, but to the untrained eyes of my fellow co-workers it should do the job and impress the bunch.
    I don't plan on making any changes or upgrades to it, it was just something I put together with what I had on hand at home and what I could pick up on short notice.
    I am investing most of my money for my ESB Boba Fett build instead

    Here is a breakdown:
    Helmet - Rubie's Helmet that I weathered and inserted a welding visor
    Armor - White sintra armor I picked up from Ebay from a while back, painted, weathered and resized
    Gauntlets - also from Ebay, so misc Mando style that I painted/weathered. The rocket is out back drying
    Flak Vest - Black vinly from Joann's, cut and shaped
    Flightsuit - Redkap coveralls I found a while back from a thrift store, a bit baggy in the legs
    Ammo Belt - Pouches again from Ebay and a brown belt I had laying around
    Girth Belt - From Amazon
    Blasters - Rubie's orange/white blasters from Party City I think, included holsters which are not seen and outside re-painted and drying
    Shoes - Still need to finish the shoes, I am just grabbing an old pair I had with a treaded sole and attaching the armor pieces on them.

    I bought a some of this stuff way back before I heard/joined TDH and the invested some time and research to quality and accuracy: girth belt, ammo pouches, armor etc...
    Once I found this site I pretty much buried the goods until now


    I think it turned out decent enough, kinda proud of the weathering I did, wished I used a shinier/chromier silver for the armor though.
    Lets see how it does at work tomorrow!

    That works amazingly well. About how much approximately did it cost all together?

    Awesome, Way better than what I did for Star Wars Day
    The guys at work wanted me to wear the Jango costume that I have been working on but because it's still a WIP I had to wear my Rubies costume that I had laying around.
    I just marshaled out a KC-135 with my Jango bucket on lol. I wish somebody would have taken a pic.

    HAPPY STAR WARS DAY !!!! May the fourth be with you.

    Lets see if I can remember some of these prices from my older gear:

    Helmet - $30
    Armor - $100
    Gauntlets - $100
    Flak Vest - $10
    Flightsuit - $10
    Ammo Belt - $40
    Girth Belt - $20
    Blasters - $15

    Paint
    Krylon Metallic Silver rattle cans - $7
    Black/brown acrylic tube paints - $3
    Velcro for free, got it from work!


    So around $250, give or take.
    I ended up spending like $40 over the weekend, most of the stuff was just sitting in storage totes.
