    Hey all! So this might sound like a dumb question but I really want to know if anyone on here knows what method Disney used to attach Boba's armor when he was performing at the Dance off LOL. I'm just asking this because he was really busting out some moves and the armor seemed to hold up perfectly XD
    So if anyone has any info it would be much appreciated if you could share, thanks for your time.

    I think the first thing about that particular kit is that he is not screen accurate. They cut many corners to give the armor more flexibility. So even if you attached screen accurate armor in the same way you wouldn't necessarily get the same results.

    Yeah that much is a given, I suppose I would rather know what the best method would be for holding the armor in place while "attempting" to move in a more combat paced environment. While of course keeping the costume accurate, for a short film I plan on making. If it is even possible at all XD

    Probably do the screen accurate method of bolts and grommets. If done right they will not come off unless you intentionally take them off.

    Is there an existing thread for that?

    Actually yes. Bobamaker did a tutorial for it at one point. In his tutorial he started by making a copy of his armor with resin but making cardboard copies works just as well.

    The screen used suits had the same attachment method but the bolts that were used were nylon plastic bolts. If you do a search for grommet or armor attachment you will get all kinds of results for useful threads.

    I think the easiest way is what someone came up with the Tie Tack method. You don't put permanent holes in the vest... which is A OK in my book.

    I think 4 Real is referring to my thread here:
