    Greetings, fellow Mandalorians! My name is Jetii Kad'au Skirata but you can call me "Derek".

    I'm new to this site & was wondering about how things go here.

    Also I'm looking forward to making my first costume here, though not sure if I can afford anything at the moment.

    Again I'm happy to be here.

    Welcome to the Brotherhood!

    As Sgt. S said, scratchbuilding allows you to make things the way You want them, as well as a sense of accomplishment and pride in the finished product opposed to buying something outright.

    That, and it's way fun too... Just do a search for "Scratchbuilt" here and see what people have done...

    So, do you have any costume items yet? I see you're from Indiana; if you are looking for a helmet, I strongly suggest a Sgt. Fang, both for price and quality. That, and he's in Mooresville, dunno how far that is from you, but you could PM him about his buckets which run $150 shipped...

    You might be able to save a few bucks by local pickup or less in gas...

    Have you decided on a specific Boba style yet? (We need more ROTJ's!! ), or are you thinking of a Jango or a custom?
