Hi I am looking to build a Jango Fett costume from scratch. Since I am on a budget I expect to try and build this costume myself as much as possible. I would like to have as much help and feedback as possible on my ideas. (I am not looking to build the most perfect costume. I want to make it look good but not by spending thousands on it.)
-Build all armor on EVA Foam, (Chest Armor, Collar, Shoulders, Backplate, thighs, shins, and crotch) cover with white plastic dip, and later, paint the armor (with your guys recommended color and method of paint). Will heat the armor for bending.
I used this video link for ideas.
-Build Kamino or Arena Jetpack (Whichever you guys think is simpler) from scratch off of numerous different materials.
-Try to make the knee pads, if not then will look at purchasing options. Same goes for Gauntlets. (Also would like ideas on how I can build knee pads and gauntlets)
-Build or Purchase Flightsuit, and Flak Vest.
-Purchase gloves. Get white/orange dual blasters from amazon and cover in silver spray paint (I am open to different paint options)
Here's where I am undecided and need help.
- I purchased a boba fett rubies helmet. I would like to know if I should go ahead and paint it Jango's colors, or if i should purchase another jango helmet, either from Rubies (which i heard isnt great but i could care less), or from another place. The holsters i have seen on amazon and other sites such as target and more. They have gotten awful reviews and I want to know whats the best option for that. Same for the pouch belt. I may look to build that myself, unless that's not the best possible idea.
Thanks for reading, im open to your ideas
