I'm a newly registered user to TDH and this is my first post (don't worry, no home made mando underpants on sale here) and I was looking for some suggestions from such and illustrious group.
In a couple of weeks I'm heading to the ski-slopes (its winter here in the southern-hemisphere) and I had the idea of the century - albeit alcohol induced. I've begun converting my earliest (and least valuable) set of Boba armour for use on the slopes. Hopefully this will win me the costume prize for the trip (itís a uni/college trip) and allow me to bask in the free alcohol that ensures.
My question is: What kind of modifications do people suggest I could make to
1) make it look more like a extreme-climate suit
2) not detract hugely from Boba's style (keep in mind that this is still essentially going to be Boba not a custom)
At the moment Iím thinking of scrapping the gauntlets and jet pack ( I know, but they restrict movement somewhat) and adding some thigh and shin armour.
Please people, your thoughts?
Note: In case I didn't make it clear, I AM going to ski in this. I'm a pretty flash skier but even still, I'll restrict myself the easy/intermediate runs.
