    i put together a helmet contained voice amp system using a cheap halloween voice changer. i gutted the entire thing, jumpered the connections so it was just the voice amplifier, soldered in a new mic and a switch, then hotglued everything into place inside the helmet. i like the set up so much i'm going to do it with my boba helmet when i get done painting it. i plan on taking lots of pictures during the process and may even shoot a video of the process.
    I would definitely like to see this!

    I am going to try the thinner amp from the 501st member with the wireless mics and amps and try fitting it behind my chest plates as well.
    Who is that? Very interested myself.

    as far as the flight suit, I used the do a little till you like it method. I just added some purple a little at a time. Then I used a light bleach solution to weather it.

    Alright. So it took me roughly 1 hour to get everything on for the first time--except back armor and jetpack. Obvious it would be quicker and less stressful to have a helper putting on your armor.

    Doing a Jango as opposed to a Jawa is definitely a commitment. So many minor things to adjust....

    yeah, I can't totally dress independently, but it has taken me less and less time.

    Soon you'll be down to half an hour or less like us Jango's who have been suiting a while now

    I agree with Seeker! Even though Jango is much cleaner compared to Boba, adding that weathering or battle damage can really make armor feel real and believable. Sweet costume by the way!

    Thanks all. Bobamaker did a great job on the vest. I love it.

    Everything is good so far. Just have to make minor adjustments here and there.

    Having some trouble with the zipper creeping up. Do you guys just velcro your vest to your harness/flightsuit or something (to hide the zipper)?

    Here a pic of what I'm talking about:



    Maybe I didn't do something right because it was around 1am when I finally finished and I was tired. Any suggestions? (sorry for the trippy picture)

    You have the chest piece and range finder on the wrong side.

    Just kidding.

    In my jumpsuit, I have one of those sewn in snaps. So it doesnt show cuz its underneath.

    Wow, nice! I'll have to play around with it to get it to work correctly. Right now, still trying to get the right color on the flightsuit

    So I suited up 100% today with the help of my gf. After looking at the pictures, I must say it looks differently than what I had in my mind. I see things I need to tweak (e.g. change the color of the flight suit). I suppose I can't be that hard on myself seeing as this was the first time for me to put it on. I did forget to snap the jetpack harness to the cod piece, which might account for the large gap between the girth and ab armor. Still don't really know what I'm going to do about the collar area.

    Gimme feeback. What needs to change? Any advice would be appreciated.

    I'm certainly no expert, the one thing to me that stands out (aside from what you mentioned already) is the thighs may need to be placed more to the center. To me, and it's only my opinion, is that they are too far off to the side.


    Looks awesome, though! I can't wait to do the same thing!

    I love it! I know it's not a big thing but, in my opinion, the jumpsuit could be faded out a little more. Maybe if you weather it with grey dye or something to tone it down but totally up to you man. As it stands, it's a really great get up!

    I definitely agree on both counts

    I will fix the thighs and fade the jumpsuit more.

    Any more fixes?
