    I'm new to the forum and after looking at many how-to threads I thought I would start building my own Boba Fett armor. Thanks to FettFullofDollars (for his trash can armor thread) and stormtrooperguy (for his RoTJ rattlecan colors thread) and everyone else for a lot of useful info and reference.

    Heres what I have so far...

    Trash can armor with no flash

    with flash

    I still need to add some orange to the shoulder bells.

    Next I'm gonna start scratchbuilding the helmet. (big thanks to Antman for his cardboard helmet tutorial)
    Now, can anyone tell me a good way to make the RoTJ flightsuit? I was thinking of just buying 2 Dickie's jumpsuits from walmart and weathering the **** out of it.

    Honestly I think I'm going to make my jumpsuit out of a collection of grey clothes :P
    grey cargo pants with a grey t-shirt over a grey long sleeved shirt (to acquire the ever important double-sleeve).
    Talkin' seeeeeeerious budget costume here :P

    Yeah Jango I'm in the process of making a helmet right now, I have a seperate thread for it:

    Nick: I hear ya man, I'm working on a serious budget right now too and am trying to find the best way to make my flightsuit.

    I still need to do the neck piece, back, lower back, cod, and knees before I can finish this armor though.
