Hey fellow dent heads, I've been obsessed with this forum for a few weeks now so I thought i should finally introduce myself. I am a graphic design student from the uk, which basically means I'm pretty creative but have no money to do the things I want! familiar story I'm sure.
I have always been a costume geek and recently finished a suit of samurai armor out of sintra, I thought it was about time I combined the techniques I learned with another interest of mine . . . Star Wars!
I decide a few weeks ago I was going to start constructing a boba fett costume for halloween, and then I came across TDH!
I have literally spent the last 2 weeks browsing the forums and I have to say some of the stuff I have seen on here is totally awesome.
Like many of you I would consider myself somewhat of a perfectionist and I really wanted to get the costume as accurate as I could for my budget (not a lot). Since halloween is 4 months away I figured I would build a custom mando first, just to get used to the way the armor fits together / works, without having to adhere to the very unbendable rules of a boba suit. I also thought this would be a perfect way to practice weathering and battle damage techniques.
So intro over, this looks like a great place and I hope to learn a lot.
