    Any reason you arent attempting a Boba costume? You shouldnt let being a girl stop ya
    Oh, I always wanted to make a BF costume...but as I got older the more I began to notice The Cloned Costume Effect. Everyone was an Kenobi Jedi, or a Stormtrooper, or an Imperial, or Vader, Maul, etc. There are TOO MANY of them out there. Also, I've always liked creating new and original characters and designing them. This is probabl a major reason why I prefer original and one of a kind costumes that no one has ever seen before - my current WIP Sith costume being one of those Sure I'll take a few ideas from other costumes here and there but in the end, what I create is original. That's what I like and I love to share. Besides, I think BF costuming should remain in the men's domain considering Boba is male


    @Bubba Fett - maybe I'll see ya around up here some time lol My sister's fiance has family in the Bay... Shasta County does have some beautiful sights...but...eh.. it really does bite if you live here. Born here, lived 95% of my life here. All that's changed is the stores, SoCal peps bringing their money, bad attitudes and reckless driving habits, and a lot of modernization. There's 3 theaters, one Mall that was renovated and upgraded about 5 years ago, and despite the beauty of mother nature...it's boring *shrugs* MUCH more so than when I was living in Rotterdam, Netherlands

    Suppose I can see that. I prefer the kids to know who I am when I troop. Rather then them asking me why I'm a weird looking Jango or Boba anyway To each their own! I prefer costuming stuff that was in universe/canon

    and I think you've hurt the couple of female boba's/Jangos/Bossk here's feelings. Boba's daughter wore his armor once didnt she? :P

    Well, there had been a few rumors that BF was a woman lol but that was before AOTC came out... And as for Boba's armor and his daughter...I have no clue...

    I think custom mando's are awesome. Nice to see some variety in the mando costumes. I may look into a custom down the road after my Jango is done (and by done I mean all the upgrades that I want to do )

    I cant believe it took me this long to welcome you, WELCOME ABORD!!!
    You guard UPPER NorCal, and I'll Guard Lower SoCal I'll try to stop them from driving up there and bringing all that darn road rage (I learned to drive in Hawaii, a lot more mellow if you ask me)
    Also, I know you will be able to make your bucket look like your concept (avatar).
    If I can do it, you can do it.
    Any WIP Pics of your sith?

    Mini updates... See attachment for Mando update. I forgot to add my swords... when I took the photos. And for my Sith costume... I need up upload my photos to comp.

    As for the Mask: blpettyaz@yahoo.com
    I found the guy here: http://www.therevanchist.com/costume...th_nihilus.htm

    As for my Mando, I've had to put it on hold. I lost my financial aid and with it my Work Study job which was paying for it... Ugh. Hopefully I'll have my Sith done before SDCC comes around (and have plane tickets paid for and $$ for food and goodies) Darth Real Life is going after me good this round

    If you love Rotterdam, the cesspool of Europe.. I hope for your own sanity's sake and for the love of architecture's sake that you got out of Rdam and saw the culture elsewhere.

    Jen!!! Wow, fancy finding you here too!! I was hoping to have the costume done before July...but it ain't happening. There are just too many pieces needed to finish it compared to the Sith costume...(which only needs like...cloak, pants, sleeveless shirt, modify boots, cowl and buy means of attaching mask to cowl)

    SDCC! BRING IT ON!

    I've seen nearly all of the US, I've been to London, England and Koln (Cologne) Germany. As of today, I never want to go back to Holland. Personal reasons. But I'd love to see more of the world... I didn't love Rotterdam but it certainly beat Amsterdam. The Force was just not right in that place

    Hey L.S., Hello from snow covered New York State!!

    I've only been here for a few months, but everyone is extremely helpful. The knowledge they have, it's worth reading threads until your eyes bug out!
