Hello everyone! Where to start ? Everyone calls me Steevo. I live in Fairview Pk, a suburb of Cle. OH. I am a 45 years old. I have been a fan since ANH 1st hit the cinema. I have always wanted a Fett costume since his first appearance. The fire has grown, now is the time. The "sticker shock" and the time spent gave me no surprise. That was anticipated n I aint ascaired! I'm balls to the wall and ready for the long haul. I'm in. I am looking forward to being part of this community, learning and be able to share anything I can contribute. May the bounty be with you.

My total cost is 85.79. It is all scratch built. I want to make as much of this costume myself as i can. If I read correctly, they are up to specs for the 501 which I hope to be part of one day.

I will probably eventually need gauntlets. That seems like an intimidating project for a newbie like me.

Hi Steevo and welcome to TDH and the fold where you will become even more obsessed by this costume and costuming in general lol
Just take it one step at a time and before you buy: RESEARCH, RESEARCH, RESEARCH
Good luck and remember - Have fun with it
