After scouring the internet for what seems like too long, I believe I found what I've been looking for. Well, at least it's a start.
I guess I'll begin with why I'm here, and if you have any questions I'll be happy to answer them!
For many years it's been a dream of mine to get my hands on a quality Boba Fett costume for cosplaying at local conventions, and general frolicking around to express my love of the character to the world. I'd like to point out that, like many others who have come here in the past, there are a few obstacles in my way. The biggest obstacle I face is being a thin lady and a meagre 5'6" without the help of heels. The second biggest obstacle is that I haven't got any funds right now to go forking over $2000 for a fully completed costume.
I'm sure you can imagine my excitement coming across the Rubies' Deluxe for $600 -$800! It seemed almost too good to be true, and of course; it was. After doing my research I discovered that it could very well be cheaper (and less of a headache) to attempt gathering bits and bobs of the costume from thrift-shops and repainting a Jango Fett helmet than dealing with the sub-par Rubies'. I'm just in need of some guidance. Mostly for the helmet, but also regarding hiding the fact that I'm a lady in a Boba Fett costume. We're all trying to be as authentic as possible, right?
You wonderful folk seem to have been through this before, and are more-than-helpful with the others who come here in search of assistance. I guess chose the name HeadHunter because the thing I'm looking for primarily is the helmet. It's a Bucket for my Bucket List. The rest I try to figure out on my own, for the most part, but the helmet needs to be perfect.
I guess what I'm trying to say is...
Help me, The Dented Helmet. You're my only hope.
