How far can you get?

Hello Fellow Fett's,
As I suited up this past weekend to go to our community's Candy Drive and Volunteer Recruiting I found myself thinking of this…

Question: How far can you guys get into your Fett Suits by yourselves? (Asking either ESB or ROTJ.....or ANY Fett really) For me, I can get everything on but need assistance with getting the white straps out of my vest and then my back armor on. And again with needing help getting the white straps through my back armor, and then my Jetpack on. Other than that, I can almost do it all myself. How bout you guys? How far can you get on your own. Can anyone do it ALL themselves unassisted?

Regards,
-Iron

I just moved my mannequin and my ROTJ suit the other day and I could barely re-suit the mannequin by myself. It calls into question all those scenes where Boba has no jetpack and the "poof!" he's flying off to battle Luke. Weequay or someone had to be standing right there to assist in putting that thing on! :)

I can do everything except the right gauntlet hoses clipped under the sleeve, the flack vest closed in the back, back armor attached & jet pack mounted.

My hoses are attached via keychain ring. I actually let the gauntlet dangle on my Flight Suit and then after I get that on, I put on my right gauntlet.

That is so funny!
<"The Battle at the Sarlacc Pit" - And Boba is on Jabba's Sail Barge - And the battle JUST started!>
Boba: "Hey bud....c'mere!"
Weequay: "....Yeah."
Boba: "Hey man, be a pal and help me get my back armor and jetpack on would ya?"
Weequay: <Looks confused - but also semi-terrified of the notorious Bounty Hunter> "Uh.....ok."
<Weequay assists Boba with the tasks>
Boba: "Oh and uh.....don't be telling anyone about this - Got it?!"
Weequay:"Yes sir!"

I'm 100% sure there has to be a droid or something that he uses to get it all on.

I've done it that way before too, but I figure if I need help anyway just let them do the hoses too.

At our age that's an accomplishment!
Give yourself soooome credit. I'm sure you can at least put your boots on by yourself too ;D

I'm not a Fett costume guy - but I can fully dress myself with everything but my jetpack thankfully! I've seen some people that have tried magnets to mount the jetpack themselves but seems too risky to me to warrant ease of use
Sometimes those damn boots are trouble . My flightsuit has gotten a lil tight in the ole midsection . It must have shrunk !! Yeah I’m going with that ! Lol

I built a portable/collapsible stand, that holds my jetpack in up in place. Then, I walk backwards up to it, reach back (takes a little finaggling) and connect my 2 clips coming out of the top of the back plate. I have 2 thin magnets glued up into my jetpacks top metal clamps. As soon as the harness clips get glose to the jetpack clamps, the magnets pull the 2 metal clamps up into place on the jetpack.

Then, it's just bending my knees, reaching behind my lower back, and standing back up with the jetpacks lower clips sliding over the harness's cross bar.

Takes me about 2-3 minutes, but I can put my jetpack on by myself np.

I dont have any local friends to troop with, so whenever I want to go anywhere, I have to put it all on myself.

-edit-
Found it:

Though I realize now, I never actually posted a video of me using it while suited up. WIll do that asap
