Hey guys, from Australia here and started my boba fett costume a few weeks ago thought I would share some pics! This site rocks!

I have started with the templates then cardboard then fiberglass and filler, plus a lot of sanding!!!

I used my bmx helmet to create the dome and it works really well!!! Started the body armour as well using cardboard then transfering the pieces onto the back piece of a old phone booth cand cutting it all out with tin snips.


Thanks guys!!!
