    Mar 12, 2013, 4:43 PM - Hello from Belgium #1

    Hi,

    I,m Bernie, from Belgium. A friend of mine got me into trooping about a year ago and convinced me to build a custom mando along with him.
    Having build a custom mando, I thought it was time to build the one thing I always wanted, my own Boba Fett costume. Luckely be now I have a lot of experience with building a suit, what the doīs and dontīs are, and where to buy my stuff. Canīt wait to begin (anew).

    Deadline will be Celebration Europe, hoping that Iīll have finished it by then. As if that deadline isnīt close enough yet, Iīll also be helping two friends build and paint their own custom mandos, while repainting and finishing my first suit. Itīs going to be busy.

    Hoping to spend a lot of time here, and learning a lot.

    Cheers
    Bernie

    Thanks for the greetings guys, sorry it took me almost a month to reply, been busy.

    I more or less figured out where I will get most of the props, the only thing I'm still wondering about are gauntlets.
    My custom mando has a couple of clamshell ones but I'm not completely happy about it. Too much work to get them to look the part and they're still not that great to be honest. What would be the best gauntlets available?
