Well, here is my obligatory first post and my story of how I ended up here.
I'm a (mostly former) Star Wars collector who is just now starting to sell off a considerable amount of my collection. Last night I started with my first batch of items, one of them being an unmodified Don Post 1995 Boba Fett helmet (vinyl, white interior). Looking at my helmet brought back many memories, and in doing so I remembed stumbling across this forum (as a lurker) some time ago. A little Googling and here I am now.
I think it is great there is still a vibrant community of prop/costume makers out there striving to make awesome replicas. Back when I was in my collecting heyday, the only outlet I had to talk with others was on BBS message boards...but even that was pretty limited.
So, if any of you are in search for a DP 95, mine is available.
ps: The only time I wore this was back in 1995 for my school's Halloween contest. At that time, I stood out with my homemade Boba Fett costume amongst the guys dressed up as sports players. And, despite the ridicule I endured that day, I still think I was the coolest kid in school that day.
