    Hey all, I have been on the forums since 2007 but didn't create a account till 2011 at my first year in college. Anyways I plan to build a ESB Fett so far I have RKD V3 armor and Landher boots. Off to a little start. (My first Fett build was in middle school and was made from Cardboard.. I have pics somewhere.)

    I'm also 5'4" 150lbs on the short side. And had a few questions about what to get. Who makes a small ESB bucket and Jet Pack? Trying to make this proportional to my body.
    Also gauntlets?

    I'll be posting more and more as I go.

    check out Skyfire for a GMH, definitely in the smaller scale of the helmet spectrum. not really sure if anyone makes scaled gauntlets and JPs. kind of a one size fits all sorta deal but you can always affect the gauntlet enclosure size when you buy them in kit form. a jetpack on the other hand, not much you can do other than build your own, scaling down the pep files to your liking. good luck!

    I'm 5'6" 140 pounds and have a wip thread on here. Don't worry about being short. You can absolutely do it!

    If money alows I would like to own as much original pieces as I can. :)

    I lost a bid on the pulce by $100. It sold for $500.. ):

    General - Short Boba Fett build for Halloween

    This guy here seems to produce smaller jetpacks and other parts. He says has molds for the female fett version with a 3/4 sized jetpack and maybe other smaller scaled parts you might need.

    Man of War wool cape came in. What do you think of it?

    To be honest I am not sure if wool is the right material. If you look at the damage from that reference pic I think it would look more „fluffy“ at the edges of the damage if it has been made from wool:

    But there are a lot of different opinions about that here in TDH. Your cape looks really like matching the colours and I like the quality of MOWs stuff. (y)

    I got the wool version and the standard version. Once my suit is done I’ll see what looks better. I dig the colors on the wool tho.

    Update on the cape.
    Used RafalFett template on the cape. Well my rendition of it lol. Still need to weather the holes a tad bit.

    Lookin’ Awesome! I wouldn’t worry too much about being short, I’m just over 5’5” and have a standard (I think) size bucket and Jetpack (Jetpack’s scratch made from WoF templates) and have extra insoles in my boots to make me an inch and a half taller. Keep up the good work!

    Outside light on the cape.


    Indoor natural light.

    I need to iron the cape again. The creases keep coming back.
