What am I Getting Myself Into?
three factors in making a costume: Time, talent and money. You need to have 2 of those in abundance for it to work out.
Make sure to read "new to TDH? Read this about how much you will spend" before you get started! We don't want to scare you away, but you should know what you are getting yourself into.
It's not that easy though. At this point there are few licensed replicas available, and fan made replicas are usually done by individuals for their own use or as part of small group projects. The best way to get parts is to watch the forum for someone selling their old items or extras from their personal projects.
One question that comes up regularly is regarding the Master Replicas Boba Fett helmet. This is a GREAT piece and is an excellent value, if you can still fine one. Take a look at these threads on the forum regarding the MR Fett helmet:
Members often ask about the Master Replicas Boba Fett helmet. It is generally considered to be the most accurate helmet widely available to the public, as it was digitally scanned from an original helmet (but not the ESB hero, it was scanned from the pre production version 3).
It does have some issues though, particularly the "pinched" visor. The visor tapers significantly toward the bottom, which has huge impact on the look of the piece.
People have approached fixing this in many ways. Below is a list of some of the different member threads on the topic.
