    Well, I pulled it out this morning and it is purple and not black. I will let it go for a few more hours. Next I will try a blue tint. I just need to get another shield. Not sure when that will be.

    I wish I would have paid more attention to your "black dying" post Asok. I could have told you it was going to be purply/blue...my bad. I am hunting for black as well.....

    No worries. It would work great for a custom.

    I just pulled it out and it is a purple/rose color. I will try blue next. Maybe it will turn out green.

    I don't think you guys are gonna find a true black... Most likely the darkest/'blackest' tint will be smoke (Rembrandt/T-Visor sells a nice smoke one), or the blue/purple type that BM sells. I know that when shopping for fabric dyes, they all have a seperate color for the base. Like when a black t-shirt gets old and faded, it has either a brownish red tint for a red base, a greenish tint for green base, and so forth. The ones that look the most 'black' when they fade are the blue based ones, imo. Not sure if the dye that you are using for the visors follows the same pattern or not, but its just something that I've noticed that seems to be in accord with each other.

    This is a BM visor from the outside:




    And this is a Rembrandt/T-Visor from the outside:

    I just came across this thread by chance. I'm not informed on Jango at all, but I have to ask Asok and the others- Why won't a BM or T-visor shield work for your Jango Costumes? All the pictures I've ever seen of Jango the T-visor looks the same as Boba's- Black. Anyone care to explain this to me?

    Take Care,

    Phil

    Any visor will work. The real thing was blue or black. I know the 2 people who put together the C2 Jango and I just need to ask what color is it.

    Purple!

    So, as a recap:

    Black dye = rose tint
    blue dye = purple tint

    I have a small visor that I am going to cut up and try brown next. Any other color ideas?

    How blue does it need to be? I have found some blue window tint on ebay. (so-so IMO) I also found this:

    I personally don't want to use a spray or tint. The risk of me messing it up it very high. Also, I just cut out my purple visor and it makes it blurry.

    Has anyone used something like a snowmobile helmet visor? I see them in the local shops that sell those kinds of sporting equipment. There are different types, but there is a version that is flat (meaning only curved in one direction, side to side) and probably long enough top to bottom to get the whole T out of. They also come in different colours - dark grey, clear, and a couple others.

    LOL Hey, just remember... Alaska is part of the USA and they probably have more snowmobiles than just about anywhere else. I suppose now is the wrong time of year to be looking for s'bile visors, but it seems to me Canadian Tire sells generic visors of that type all year round. I *think* they're actually high enough top to bottom, but I haven't had the opportunity to verify that.
