*Official*how much has your costume cost you besides time...

My Jango has so far cost me about $300, and I still need gauntlets, a jet pack and ammo belt. I bought the armor, vest and helmet, but I hadmade the flightsuit and prolly will make the jet pack myself as well.

Well i got my helmet for free, my mom bought some of the paint, i bought some of the paint, my blasters were 16 for the pair, and that adds up to about $24 or so...

I was at the $1400+ mark, until this week. I just spent another $450 on upgrades. And once I add Natty's helmet..... let's just say over two grand when I'm finished, but I will be selling some of my old pieces to recoup a little bit of that.

well as I am, with stuff for two suits, I'm around $1500, but honestly I don't know how much will be out of pocket until the first one is sold in late august...

then we'll see where we're at :)

Well, I don't know how much my suit cost me, I scratch built everything (except the blaster....that is a converted Webely.....He He He!) When I mean everything I mean the helmet, all the armor, jet pack, boots, jumpsuit, belts, ( I used Shacks lights though and I had the missle machined) so I know I have spent a pretty penny on some things...but over 6 years of spending here and there you loose track.

Hmmm...good question.

Let's see:

Helmet (total w/upgrades): about $110
Jumpsuit: $20
Vest: $8 (cheapo turtleneck with sleeves cut off)
Armor: All Sintra, formed by me...with the paint...$40
Ammo Belt: Scratch built...about $10.
Blaster: Scratch built...$15 or so.
Boots: STILL HAVEN'T GOT HERE!! But..$62.
Gauntlets: Paid for but MB is still making them...$53.
Scalps: $10.
LEDs: $10 or so.

All told...that's about $340.

Im just curious, anyone know how much it cost ILm to make the Boba and Jango costumes? It would be interesting to compare.

I've OFTEN wondered how much the original costumes cost to make, and by comparison, if anyone on this board has a suit that costs as much (if not more) than one of the originals.

So far I have:

* Armor: 3mm Sintra, approximately $15
* Gloves: $14 (made from Dunlop golf gloves - you can search for "Dunlop golf" to see a picture of them).
* Cape: $3 (1 yard of fabric, sewn myself)
* Utility belt: $5.99 (1 yard of vinyl, sewn myself) for the pouches, $3 for Velcro to hold them closed, and $9 for a 2" wide brown leather belt to put them on.
* ROTJ Blaster: $165 for kit + another ~$40 in supplies to finish it with.
* Helmet: fiberglass helmet on order from Natty! :D
* Boots: $120 for Cheng boots
* jumpsuit: Not yet... probably make one myself...
* vest: I might get one from Richie
* jet pack: See "vest" comments above ;)
* miscellaneous items needed for building costume (paint, epoxy, putty, Sculpey, etc.): ~$80 (they add up and it's hard to keep a running total...)

I imagine this will probably end up costing a LOT more than I had anticipated in the beginning, but in the beginning I was planning on getting a "helmet", making some armor, and throwing a suit together. NOW I have to make one that's "PERFECT", thanks to YOU GUYS!!! ;)

My Boba cost me around $2000 so far (I'm always updating) and I've started my Jango, but I'm only $400 into it, but I think I can finish it for $300 more (that's with out building a new stubby jet pack)
