Boushh A Boushh for my wife

Hi there!
I've been keeping an eye on these threads for a while now, as I am making my own costume (an ESB Boba Fett). I was waiting on my Fettpride items before I do a WIP on that.

Anyway, my wife has become interested in starting a Boushh costume (which is awesome). As when I started looking into my Fett build, I really have no idea where to start with this one.

Having read a few threads, I can see some people making helmets through kits, etc. My wife is keen to start with the the helmet.

Anyway, I wouldn't mind trying to locate a helmet kit, if anyone has any info on that?

Cheers!

P.S I'm very new to costume building (Boba Fett is my first ever build) so bear in mind I'm a bit of a novice!

I hear Sandman on the RPF sells some real quality Boushh helmets. Most people get theirs from him, maybe you should see if you can get a hold of him.

There's two high-quality options for the helmet as far as I can tell. You either buy a Sandman (Todd Gottfried) or a Clothears. The Sandman is a resin rotocast. This makes the helmet a bit heavier but also enables for great details. The Clothears-helmet is vac-formed. It is lighter and yet a little larger than Todd's. The details aren't quite as sharp (personal opinion of course).

Also: Clothears ships from the UK while Todd is located in the US. Depending on where you are from, this might be a factor as well if you plan on saving on taxes and shipping.

I have a spare shoulder armor kit that i would let go for $40. Its plastic vac formed. It would take a little work but its a very affordable and quality option. PM me for details and I can also help you with your build.

Also interested to see how this turns out. I'm making a custom Mando to join up with the Mercs, and my girlfriend has expressed interest in Boushh. Good luck!

Hey, I've got an awesome Boushh helmet along with the backpack tanks. I'll be more than happy to send as many photos as you wish and a breakdown of all the parts. Has a lot of small details and stuff. I'm at work now, killing time, but once I get home I can send you this stuff. Is there a better or more preferable way you'd like me to send everything if you are interested?

Hi ZNN1225 thanks for the post! Sorry,
I've been a bit quiet on here, but busy at home!
I ended up buying a helmet kit from Todd, and am in the process of cutting it all out, sanding, and prepping for paint.

Are you wanting to sell everything together? I ask, because we'll be looking for the tanks soon I imagine...

Or do you know where to find them?
Cheers! :)

Wow, so it's been like 5 years since I've been on here!

Unfortunately I lost a bit of passion for the hobby after losing $1000 to Fettpride for a bunch of stuff I've realised I will never see. But I'll try not to go into that here...

Having some free time during the covid lockdown, I decided to get back into it. Finally managed to finish the helmet, as well as make a start on an ESB Boba Fett helmet. Thanks to Alvomedia for the awesome leather kit!

(Sorry for resurrecting this after so long!)

Looks amazing, would love to build a full boussh costume, maybe once I've done my ESB fett lol. How much was the helmet kit? Sorry to hear you lost money to fettpride that sucks. I remember him on here when I built my ROTJ fett many years ago.
