    My Jango Costume is now complete. :)

    Hi everyone, sorry that I didn't do a WIP, or how or what I use to paint my Jango costume with. I will post how and what I use to paint the costume and the paints. Also who are the makers of some of the parts that I used to finish my costume. I am waiting 501ST approval. I just wanted to share my costume project with everyone. I will keep working on this costume, until I loose 50 lbs.

    Overall looks pretty good. Posting on TDH is always an intimidating.


    Would you like any critiques?

    Yes, please. I know that the shoulders on the vest, needs to be fixed so it will stay down. Also need to get down to 200 lbs. from 250 lbs. Keep in mind, I am not trying to get 100% movie accurate for us diehard fans, but for the average Joe or fans of EP2.

    Two quick things then.

    Your thighs are on the wrong sides.
    The RF ear is sitting too high, in the Boba style. Jango's ear is set low.

    Aside of what Mullreel pointed out (he's spot on btw), you have a great looking Jango! Nice paint work and really well done!

    Thanks for pointing that out, about the thighs on the wrong side I over look it that part of the costume. As far as the right upper RF ear cap, I wanted to keep it close to looking like Boba's and liking the way it looks, compare to it being a bit lower. I know it's not movie accurate, just like the way it looks.

    Mullreel, thanks for telling me about the Buffalino's Sentinel boots, to use for Jango's boots.

    Thanks to everyone for there input.

    Not a Jango expert... but I think the undersuit has a tint of purple to it... it's not completely BLUE. I might be wrong.

    Other than the ear cap to bring it low as commented before and the undersuit.... AWESOME JOB! Love the weathering on the jetpack. You did an excellent job.

    Thanks guys for your critiques and input.

    It's funny when I troop, I get a lot of people tell me that I resemble Temuera Derek Morrison.
    I always joke around with people. I look at them with a serious face and tell them, that I was his stunt double in Episode II - Attack of the Clones. They buy it, until I start to smile. Now I just need to drop 50 to 60 lbs. and I should look the part more.

    Looks great & your paint work is top notch! I really like the colors you used on your jetpack & how that turned out.

    Great looking Jango. Got to see it in person & talk with Eaglewolf a couple of weeks ago in Milwaukee. My wife is the Boushh in the pictures with him.

    Welcome home bro, here is the best place to perfect you Jango costume.

    I suggest:

    1) Tie your jumpsuit
    2) Cover the girthbelt back (its seems the straps)
    3) Down the holsters to the middle of you knees

    The Jetpack paint work is great!!!

    Keep the fight, nice Jango Fett and you looks like Temuera Morrison! hell yeah................

    Looks great buddy. The paint job on the jp looks phenomenal. Only recommendation I would make is fix that ear piece so it doesn't get in the way of getting 501st approval if you decide you'd like to do so later on. Again, great job.

    Thanks Cruzer for making my armor, great work. I painted it with Alclad 2 chrome paint and clear coat it three times. I sanded everything down with 600 grit sandpaper, then painted it first with gloss black paint from Dupli-Color, use a scotch brite pad in a circular motion on the helmet and armor. The sprayed it with Alclade 2 Chrome and then clear coat it. The clear coat chages the chrome look to a polished aluminum.

    I'm not sure you can get approved with your helmet like that. Everything else looks great though

    What type and finish was the clear coat? Matte or satin?

    Re: My Jango Costume is now complete. :)

    Only because you said you are waiting on 501st approval.
    This is from the 501st CRL:
    "The earcap on the rangefinder side of the helmet must be attached so that it almost closes the gap between the top and bottom half and so that it sits lower than the piece that's formed into the helmet itself. "
    Also for the girth belt:
    "Belt attaches in rear. Heavy duty velcro or lacing is recommended for durability.
    Must have a vertical brown leather loop approximately three inches wide covering the rear overlapping belt seam. "
    As others have mentioned that it might give you an issue getting approved.
    You may get a response telling you to fix these parts. Nice looking kit and good luck getting your 501st ID.
