Here is a shot of my kit I stumbled across on the internet from Indy PopCon 2017
Could you post a before and after pic of it? Really digging this!
This is so sick... probably the best non-Boba Fett mando I’ve seen done. Great mythos with homage to the comic!
Wow, thanks for showing me that thread! You did a good job. And the costume really came together. You did some awesome improvements over the years.
Question... how often do you get confused with Boba when you are out and about?
thank you ! I think you did great with a realistic approach to Fenn.Thanks Ram! Really appreciate the kind words. The comic book protectors color scheme wise just looked way to tacky to me - plus Boba Fett appeared in the movies with way different colored soft parts so I figured I would mix it up a bit but keep the general look of the armor the same. Where most of the comics showed yellow, I generally went for tan as that felt like a more real-world interpretation of the military-esk aspect that the Mandalorian Protectors were supposed to have.
As for how often I get confused for Boba when I am about and about.... it's literally all the time. Even other Star Wars costumers assume I am Boba at times lol
thank you ! I think you did great with a realistic approach to Fenn.
Say... did you read the Republic Commando novels? Fenn has a tiny but interesting role there..
I am not surprised by your trooping experience
I myself get confused a lot. Even for clone trooper armor
I am really sad that all the old Mando history got eradicated by disney. But oh well... we do have "Legends" Star Wars. Thats not going anywhere. Its just not getting expanded on anymore.Thank you kindly! I have indeed read some of the Republic Commando novels but man, it has been about 15 or so years since I read them maybe? Been a minute as the kids say these days haha but yeah! Fenn's role in the books is expanded upon following his 2 appearances in the old Marvel comics which was pretty fantastic... or should I say Fenn-tastic lol
And that isn't at all surprising haha For the masses "knowing" about Star Wars and Star Wars characters they don't always know a whole lot - generally anyone in a black outfit with a helmet now a days is either Kylo Ren or Darth Vader lol
