    Jun 16, 2009, 6:20 AM - THD newcomer, signing on. #1

    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.

    Hey buddy, and welcome.

    You can find all the info you need here. You could always have a look at kotemandos who are uk based.

    Looking forward to seeing your suit take shape and what you are building yourself too.

    Bobby

    sounds like the same thing i am doing as well...i think if you do a custom mando first it will also make it TONS easier when you go to create the fett armor and such...

    this is an AWESOME place to learn, (ive been here for a couple of days now) everyone is very helpful, and will give you any advice you need!!!

    welcome to the boards, its a pleasure meeting another new fett-natic!!! by the way, your mando sniper looks great
