I was out window shopping on my lunch break today when i saw these babies... check 'em out! (almost) the Perfect Boba Fett boot!!

And compared to the AoSW it's pretty darn close!!

So.. the pros and cons..

Pro:
They were "cheap". 62 USD marked down from 112 USD
They are made of black sued.
They have the "correct" shape and form
They have the first bit of stitching in the right place (halftway done already!! Whohoo!!!)

Cons:
they are female winter boots.. lined with fur... eugh!
Very snug fit... and because of the fur lining i'll be forced to have very thin socks on..

Anyone else want one? they had two more when i left the store. could still be there. EUR size 41. ONLY. i take paypal... *hint* *hint*

Or.. if anyone has a (reasonably) accurate vest i'm good for a trade..

Well i started painting one of the boots.. just to get a "feel" for it. I've been looking at different picutres but they never seem to be out of the same boot. So what i've got is some kind of hybrid i guess. But before i start doing the other shoe (and adding toe-spikes) i would like you guys to take a swing at them and tell me what you think.

thanks for the input guys.. but what do you think about the colours? Are there supposed to be three different scalesor gray? or does it just look that way in the movies?

Well.. They are finally done!! And considering the time put in to it.. (probably less than 12 hours of work) they turned out really good.. but here i am rambling about.. on to the pics!!

Tools of the trade: Sinra, a file, ref pics, a boot, pens and Sintra

Found these pens in a bookstore.. i thought that the tips looked a lot like the toe-spikes on the boot so i got 4 of 'em

A bit of measuring, dremeling, JB Welding, drilling, and screwing later..
