    Re: Danakin's Fenn Shysa

    I finally got around to adding this costume to my website, including some new "studio"-style pics and more info on the build.

    I've been looking at your Fenn pics a lot and visited your site (and I highly admire your outstanding work)
    and I love your helmet it is perfect,infact your magnificent outfit inspired me to make my own suit of Shysa armor.
    about the emblem,its awesome,but your right,there is no emblem reference of Fenn,I seriously doubt he has one.
    The shoulder bells,good choice making them prepro-style,since it seems no one could ever decide about Fenns emblems.
    Again,I realy think highly of your work and hope to see more of your coming cosplays/costumes.

    Question. How did you do the "eyes" on the helmet? Were they hand painted? Decals? I would eventually like to make a Shysa myself, and I have been trying to figure that bit out.

    I know this is about the Fenn Shysa armor, but I'm completely at a loss for words on the awesome Anakin resemblance you're sporting! Awesome to see that you've put that image to use!

    Wow, it's been forever and a day since I've checked in here. Thanks again everyone for the comments!

    I know I'm WAY late in replying, but here's my answer anyway...

    During my first attempt back in 2006/2007 I tried to use decals but it was very difficult to place them evenly on each side and make them symmetrical to each other. I screwed it up so badly, along with the original paint job, that I shelved the project for a couple years. I ended up masking them off and spraying them on the final helmet. Doing it that way allowed me to use precise measurements to insure that they were placed properly. It also feels much more "real" having them painted on the helmet as opposed to decals.


    I've been having a blast wearing this costume here and there for the past year. One thing that I didn't have time to do before SDCC last year was a black wash to all the armor pieces, I was able to do that before last Halloween. There's a few more changes/upgrades I'll be making as time and (more importantly) money allow. Here's some more recent pictures of my costume from local events I've attended.

    Crazy like a fox...but in a good way.

    Honestly, a Jedi costume (Anakin, in my case) is WAY hotter to wear than a Fett.



    I don't deny being crazy, though.

    I've worn a Jedi costume at the 4th July parade a few years back, and I had to wear multiple pairs of socks for comfort. It felt like my feet were in an oven dude.

    Re: Danakin's Fenn Shysa

    Oh dude, I totally do. Every single time. Doesn't bother me though, I'm actually glad that I can masquerade as Boba to the general public. Although I do plan on picking up a few extra pieces so I can swap them out and actually BE Boba sometime down the road.

    Great build! Shysa's such a pivotal but often overlooked character.
