    Hi all... finally decided to become a member after working on my stuff for a while and using as much information as possible from the site. Figured it's about time to post some pictures of the progress and maybe get some constructive criticism and whatnot.

    Me in costume. Currently I'm working on the helmet, so it looks way different now, more pictures to come when finished.

    knee armor, been painted again since picture, wear came out really brown so I repainted as light yellow

    and Wookie Braids.

    There we are so far, I think I have a pretty good start so far, still need to fabricate the jetpack and gauntlets. I would also like to take this time to thank Rafalfett and wizardofflight, your templates have been awesome and saved a lot of time!

    Thanks a lot! I got the visor covered... I bought a welding visor to replace it, I already tore out the old one and the bucket in being painted as we speak!

    Good start. Your flack vest looks gray, should be nearly white. Which Boba Fett version are you building?

    It was the lightest grey I could find man, thought I could bleach it out a little but it didn't work, think I'm gonna try to sunbleach it. Thoughts or suggestions? And I'm doing ROTJ.

    Even for ROTJ, which has a dirtier vest, that color is too dark. If bleach didn't work, try dye remover. But you may need to redo it with white material and weather that.

    So, it's been an arduous process to get to this point, but working when life has permitted, I've at least been able to get to this point:

    had the helmet all torn apart and finally got it back together. Still more painting to do, but it's coming along!

    Another helmet pic, added the kill stripes and a little damage. Also, made a longer RF stalk out of sintra, little worried about it wobbling around too much, but I think it will work until I can get a better one.

    Been a while since I was on here, been quite busy with life in general. Here's a couple pics of my Jetpack construction so far, I like how it's coming together but there's still a bunch of work to be done on it!
