I just signed up on TDH forums a few days ago. I wanted to say hello and give you a brief history of myself and my costumes
First off I am married
I started costuming and going to con's back in 2000. My first Star Wars costume was of course Boba Fett which I made using an old tutorial off the internet (jedi-academy.com) I think. Then it all exploded from there. Stormtrooper, Vader, Biker Scout, Royal Guard, Darth Maul, Jango Fett, Anakin, Luke (ANH/ESB) Chewbacca, R2-D2, C-3PO, Jawa, Yoda
I was head of a local Star Wars fan force which ended in May 05 after EPIII. We had a large falling out in our group and it didn't help that what the prequels were really bad (my personal opinion.)
I ended up meeting Gorge Lucas at C3 back in 05. It is a funny thing after I meet GL I had no need or desire to continue Star Wars costuming.
I was left with a bad taste of star wars in my mouth and swore off all things Star Wars until this weekend. I have meet and talked to Jeremy Bulloch many times in the past. But this time I spent a good hour talking about Star Wars and the prequels and how I think having Jang and young Boba took away from him and his character in ESB. He looked at me and I looked at him and we both just nodded our heads in agreement.
I knew then I wanted to preserve my image of the OT and ESB and represent the ESB Boba Fett I loved when I was a kid. So being it was my first Star Wars costume I now want to make it my last and greatest costume.
Now on to the photos.
