    Hey guys! I'm looking to buy a Jango helmet for a custom Mando. My budget max is about $75.00. Are Rubies two pieces OK? I don't want it to fall apart or any thing! What's the price on a Rubies one piece? Where can I find these?

    Also, if you know anyone who sells matching kill stripes, let me know! Thanks, you guys are the best!

    If you have $75 as your helmet budget, go with the one piece. The two piece is really thin and flimsy. Is $75 your budget for the entire costume?

    You could try Bradleyfett, not sure about Jango, but a good value movie size helmet for a custom. Will require some building skills.

    I want a Jango because I like the color. Where can I find a one piece? I found what might be one on Amazon.com, but I'm not sure because it didn't say so. It was like $65.

    As for the rest of my suit, I've managed to find some alumanum that could be spread over cardboard or some other material, and velcroed to a vest of some sort... I also plan to make an ammo belt out of cell phone holders, and have my Grandma teach me how to sew some side pouches, like Boba's. So, my whole suit will probably be under $100.

    Update: Still need some advice on the helmet, refer to last question-

    I've started making a set of twin blaster pistols(I know, I know...sorry for stealing, Jango), so with those I'll be making some holsters out of leather or vynle(or however you spell that!).

    As for the armor, I still have my aluminum, but I might try to just buy some pre-made Mando armor. I also plan to make knee armor.

    I've finished drawing sketches for the vest(Sorry for stealing again, Mr. Fett, Sir), and It's looking great!

    Ammo belt is the same.

    Girth belt will be a 4 or 5 inch strip of leather or vynle :jet pack with a couple of clips on the back.
    Sketches finished for the side bags(I hope Lucas dosen't sue for Boba too!), and I'm going to practice sewing sometime soon.

    My dad is thinking about making gauntlets, just because he finds so much junk at his work that he can use!

    And I think that's all...........
