    Hi all... finally decided to become a member after working on my stuff for a while and using as much information as possible from the site. Figured it's about time to post some pictures of the progress and maybe get some constructive criticism and whatnot.

    Me in costume. Currently I'm working on the helmet, so it looks way different now, more pictures to come when finished.

    and Wookie Braids.



    There we are so far, I think I have a pretty good start so far, still need to fabricate the jetpack and gauntlets. I would also like to take this time to thank Rafalfett and wizardofflight, your templates have been awesome and saved a lot of time!

    Thanks a lot! I got the visor covered... I bought a welding visor to replace it, I already tore out the old one and the bucket in being painted as we speak!

    Good start. Your flack vest looks gray, should be nearly white. Which Boba Fett version are you building?

    It was the lightest grey I could find man, thought I could bleach it out a little but it didn't work, think I'm gonna try to sunbleach it. Thoughts or suggestions? And I'm doing ROTJ.

    Even for ROTJ, which has a dirtier vest, that color is too dark. If bleach didn't work, try dye remover. But you may need to redo it with white material and weather that.
