Yeah... it's not "uneven" ... it's "weathered" ;)

Still looking forward to seeing the real thing next month! Hope your wife doesn't mind me scoping out the costume and asking the two of you lots of questions! :D

Here's mine... mostly. It's all done except the leather and some detail pieces (toe spikes, hand backs, more weathering, etc)

Wow, I just joined the site and I have to say that the amount of detail that goes into all of your costumes is amazing!! I'm curious...if one wanted to make a Zam costume... how much would be a reasonable cost? Thanks guys!

How much do you have? Double it... ;)

Seriously... it depends. Depends on the amount of detail you want to go into. How screen accurate you want the finished costume to be. How much skill you have in making your own props. What tools you have already and whatever tools and supplies you need to purchase.

A person can spend thousands on a costume (as some of the Fett's have!). Other's have spent only a few hundred and made fantastic costumes! Zam is probably one of the more expensive and difficult of the costumes to make. But don't let that discourage you! If Zam is what you want (as it was with me) then go for it!

MaulMaus pretty much nailed it. It is a very pricey project .... or can be. It really depends on your desire. The Zam has got to be one of the most difficult for a couple reasons. Obviously because of the amount of leather work and all the details but also because there aren't very many of us. The Fett people (which I am too ;) ), are lucky because so many people make parts.

I lost track of my investment a long time ago but I'm sure it's got to be close to $3,000 or so. Now, some consideration has to be directed toward all the molding and casting materials which is very pricey. To make my shinguards initially, I think I spent about $500.00 getting one set made. This was because of all the molding and casting materials, not to mention many many many hours of labor and research ;)

I know, this might sound discouraging but please don't let it be. You have to visualize and set small goals and stages of completed parts. Just look at a few parts at a time and eventually you'll get to the end ;)

I've got about $1200 in mine, but I didn't have to buy most of my equipment because my boytoy is a Fett and had all the cool toys already.
