    Starting first Czech Jango Fett costume

    Hello guys, I am from Czech Republic and I am trying make Jango Fett's arena costume acceptable in 501. Legion.

    I hope someone from us give me some hints, because I want him perfect .


    Here is some of my first issues:

    1.) Boots, is some of those useable for customization?

    2.) Do you know where I can get helmet and gauntlets?

    3.) What kind of gloves I can use?

    4.) I hear if I don't want to buy MR Blasters. I can have resin version, but I don't have find them on ebay, I someone of you selling one, let me know. Or if some of hasbro toys blasters after coloring are acceptable give me hint whant kind, that white/orange version?

    (sorry for my bad english)

    Hey, I would recommend Asok's helmet. You couldn't get a better one. And as far as gloves, there are some on amazon right now, you'd want to get size XXL or XXXL. Here's a link for gloves:
    Amazon.com: Fownes Women's Cashmere Lined Lambskin Leather Gloves: Clothing
    The navy ones.
    I'm modifying a pair of the orange/white blasters myself. Guys have threads on how to do that here on TDH
    Hope it all goes well!

    Jaroslav, about your boots, you must to search here on the trading station, in evilbay or other shoes sites the accurated: Kenneth Cole Pitt Crew Boots, if you have patience (and some luck) you will find a pair, so, my advice, do all your costume, let the shoes to the end, and keep looking for the shoes on those sites, I am trying to make that Jangos but will take some time, be patience.
    About the gauntlets, you can start making your owns with pepakura using the templates in this site, or, save some money to buy the resine o fiberglass that you can find here, (the SEARCH window is always your best friend).
    Good luck and welcome.

    Hello guys, I made some progress on my Jango Fett armor for 501st. Now I am finishing new color scheme for better metal look + weathering. But I have question about alignment and size of armor plates on my chest. I have some pictures of my prototype armor. What do you think? Do I need smaller pieces or are they allright? And what do you thing about vest color, is grey enought or too light?

    The chest armor is too big. There should be spacing between each plate.

    The vest should be a very dark grey and should contrast with your jump suit.

    It looks like its coming along, but everything Mullreel said (Armor is definitely too big and the vest is the wrong color) is spot on, plus you need to bring down your shin armor. Look at some of the screenshots from the movie or my WIP progress thread to see how I handled it.
