    Sep 29, 2013, 2:14 PM - Hello from Wichita KS #1

    Hello everybody. I've just recently joined TDH but have been reading it for a couple of years now. I am finally getting started on my ESB Fett. I have built costumes in the past but they were mostly soft part styles and makeup. I went to the premiere of The Phantom Menace as Darth Maul, wound up on the front page of the paper and on TV from that one. And I was Grand Admiral Thrawn for Revenge of the Sith. Anyway I have wanted to build a Boba Fett since about '95 I guess. I don't know what made this year different but I am finally started. I got a cape from Tk409 and I just finished staining my girth belt. The hard part will be figuring out what piece to get next. A little more about me...I am an automotive painter at a large local dealership, I own a couple of Pugs, I have a Black Belt in Karate and a Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and I teach Karate at a local MMA gym. That's about it from me, I want to tell everyone on this site to keep up the good work, everything I see on here just motivates me to do mine the best I possibly can. Later

    Chris as Thrawn.jpg This is from a Halloween party with my wife as Flo the progressive girl. I did this last minute as we weren't planning on going so it was kinda thrown together. It looked much better at the Revenge of the Sith movie.
