Hello TDH,

This post will be about me and my journey to becoming a Fett. I will be documenting my first W.I.P. for an entry level ESB Boba Fett. I plan to join the 501st and then slowly progress to a higher level later down the road. I’ve been researching, buying parts, researching some more, buying more parts, hiring painting services, ordering more parts. I think I have everything either bought, on order, on the way, or parts/services I still need to order.

Well happy birthday to me!! All of my soft goods, cape, braids, and chest lights came in the mail. I did a quick try on using my stand-in bucket and the help of my wife. Definitely gonna need to do a hemming and fitting on all of these soft parts lol. I'm a small guy compared to you R4ZORBL4DES hahaha. Thank you for the Cape, braids, and chest lights MMcfett! I'm super excited to have everything coming together! I can't wait to receive the nemrod holster and pulse 40 from Boba'sdent1138! You guys are the best!!

Thank you keegan! I couldnt have done it without everyone here on the TDH! Suit update...today I took my flight suit, vest, and neck seal to my local tailor to get fitted and hemmed. It cost a good amount and she said it would take about a month to finish. Damn kids with there proms and people with there weddings! Lol jk I have learned Boba fett is not a race.

Lol thanks Micheal! I can't wait to get my soft goods back from the tailor so I can weather them. Hopefully this weekend will be some nice weather that way I can paint my boots and pulse 40!

Yeah these winter months kinda suck when your trying to paint. I have a little setup in the basement right now to get some painting done, but idk what I’d do without it!

Pucksdown's jet pack arrived today!! This thing is so light!!! It was 3-D printed and painted by him...the only things I will change is I will be purchasing all the jet pack metal greeblies including Full Metal Fett's metal hooks and clips. I was a little nervous to hook the jet pack on my harness with those 3-D printed clips. I think it looks pretty good though especially the size and paint job...Thank you so much Pucks!!
