Title: ESB Boba in the works
Post by: Beviin Can'gal on Dec 12, 2015, 04:05 PM
Hello All! I am currently working on an ESB Boba as well as a custom mando for MM. So... Here it is.

Did the cape myself. Took about 7 color pulls and about 13 layers of windex/paint mix to get the results.

Decided to build my own boots. Like the custom results more.

Just a heads up real horse girth belts are relatively inexpensive and come with the required buckles. By the time you buy the buckles for the girth belt you are making you will have spent the same for not nearly the accuracy you would get buying a simple horse girth belt.

I agree with this.

Also, it's worth it to buy accurate boots rather than trying to build them. I've never in my life seen an accurate pair of scratch-built boots.

This is also correct, but I was going simply on costs.

Here is an image of one of the boots actually worn in the movie.

Notice the difference in how the stiching is near the bottom of the elastic portion near the boot ankles. Stiching exists on the boots you are trying to look like "the real deal" that cannot be undone...therefore it will never duplicate the real boot image. This is just one of numerous differences between your boot and the most accurate boot...the man of war boot.

Where did you get the gauntlets from?
