This will be great. I can't wait until my little girl is big enough to have armor.
ah cool my MS-Paint sketch is back on track XD
Father of the year nomination for this?
Can't wait to see the progress!
I will be checking in on your build! It's fun creating costumes for your kids because no matter what it comes out like they absolutely love it!
very nice. the pics on the top look epic.
Awesome! Definitely can't wait to see the progress!!
Awesome build so far! I just watched the "movie" and I suspect I'll be building one myself once the wife watches it too. I may find myself building one of these before I even get started on my own Boba. Keep us posted on the progress.
Also, is that a repurposed Bo Katan helmet or a heavily modded boba/jango?
I found a seller on line offering a “Sabine Wren” helmet kit, I thought great, click Pay Now. Let’s me just say it’s really really rough. This helmet I found needed more attention, corrections to details and bondo then any other helmet I have ever worked with. I’m still just trying to get the dome round enough so I can primer it. That’s just my heads up, it’s still better then starting with nothing. I'm hoping Cruzer comes out with his Sabine helmet soon. He hited at working on one lets cross our fingers.

Good to know. So as usual, avoid evilbay. BTW, for me anyway, your pix of the rear slots are showing as invalid links.
I just cut out my EVA foam, going to shape it today. I am concerned that the helmet i'm using may be too large.
I'll post more pics soon.
Thanks Syper. Yeah, I am the same way. I want to be accurate and I know before years end she might not even fit into her Gear anymore and I will need to build new one or she might want custom armor. (This being most likely when she sees me working on my armor). You are right. as long as we get the basic look for the girls they will enjoy the hell out of it.
I have similar issues for her helmet. It warped while I was working on *** and the peak on the forehead caved in and there is almost no room for her face if I put on the visor. I might have to cut and adjust her helmet. 2 questions though. Where did you find the toy guns to mod and what do I use for a visor?
great work! awesome dads!
just wondering.....what material are you coating your foam with? I've been using this stuff from Smooth-On for a couple of years ( i think it's 65 D if i'm not mistaken), but for me it always cracks on the surface of the foam. what are u using, plasti-dip?
keep up the great work!
oh! great! thanks for the reply! so no epoxy then. just lots and lots of elmers glue! got it.
Gauntlets and it looks like knuckle guards as well.... Damn I hope my daughter doesn't see that. lol
