    I ordered a couple of these. I'll paint them to standard. They should be lighter than ones made out of wood I hope.

    The girth has fewer ropes/lines. Plus it rides just under the belt.

    Sorry if I misunderstood, but you mean the color of the suit right? When I look at the episode, I indeed would say Neutral 2: 361. Yet on some pictures like http://images.wikia.com/starwars/ima...Detail-SWE.png, the suit seems a bit darker like Neutral 2: 285 or Neutral 1: 528 even?
    Man, this is tough. I think I might try 349 as a compromise from neutral 1. I guess you could always go darker if it doesn't work

    This is awesome! I'm starting my Bo katan sculpts tommorow. We are going to do vacformed kits. My wife is just about Bo's size in real life (except the long neck) should be fun!

    Eggcellent, don't forget to dare to share. Have you picked what kind of body suit yet?

    One thing you'll learn on tdh is you use whatever soft parts crazy4bobafett says.

    Guys I've been looking at images for her costume. I honestly think that there isn't a secondary sleeve on the jumpsuit. I believe the sleeve is to the vest just more of a slim shirt sleeve than the customary Curved Short Boba sleeve.
    This is the thing with animated versus real life images, its left to personal interpretation.
    I go through this all the time making costumes.
    I always lean toward functionality because you have to wear it! Its not drawn on you...
    The reason I suggested a unitard (bodysuit)and leggings is it would make more sense to have two pieces since you are a girl wearing the costume, and if you do indeed need to use the restroom well. Why I have a zipper in the waist of my Boba jumpsuit.
    Anyhow I was just reading a bit here and thought I'd mention my reasoning.
    Thanks Nick!

    That's true, great idea

    Also thanks for the tip crazy4BobaFett, also great idea! I actually was already thinking of making the bodysuit in 2 parts and then let the belt cover the transition. Originally my reason was that 2 parts (at least for me) would be better to come by and being more fitting everywhere over the body (sorry if my English isn't so great, but don't know how else to discribe it haha) at the same time then with a full bodysuit. But indeed it's also handy when having to use the restroom, since that also always is my problem when wearing a flightsuit for my TIE

    Nice!! I always had kind of the problem being to tall for most costumes of Star Wars characters, Bo-Katan was actually the first who would be even taller then me. Perhaps that's why I like her so much

    Well I got a unitard and leggings from a dance store in white. The top was ok but the leggings did not translate well in my opinion. While there they showed me a catalogue with full body long sleeve mock turtle neck suits that can come in a charcoal grey or a color called gasoline. Both look similar in color to Bo. I am going to see if I can exchange them
    The leggings were almost translucent and screamed swan lake.I was disappointed but hopefully I can exchange it as well as return the dyes I bought.

    Good catch! It looks like the armor and helmet are the same. There is also a shot of a another female, real quick where if you blink you'll miss it. Its a blonde with a bob type(i think) haircut but you can't see her armor.

    Thats the one I saw. I think they are different people. The one in the corner, after zooming in, I think has more of a flat top.

    AFAIK the Other Mando-girls except for Bo goes with that standart sceme.




    Bo has another sceme just to let her stand out as the leader type of the squat i guess. Like Pre Vizsla has a markable Colorstyle (and later the helmet) of his own just to stand out of his goons. A Typical Movie and Cartoon law Make the LeaderGuy stand out of his goons. Not like in modern Armies were Squadleaders and Officers take of their ranksigns in a Combatzone to blend in with all those others Grunt, so that Sharpshooters need to wait until they give orders and handsigns to mark them dead ;-)
