Dreadnought's ROTJ Boba Fett
« on: Dec 03, 2016, 01:00 AM »
I've posted this on the Sandhawk Clan boards as well. I hope multiple posts are ok. An exciting end to the week - I was the lucky recipient of two boxes of Boba Fett awesomeness.



These boxes mark the end of waiting on stuff for my costume from overseas vendors. I didn't think I was a very patient person but man, this project has proven I am. Still plenty of work to be done, though. Here's some photos of everything that was in the boxes:






And a photo of the other stuff I already had - I realised I forgot to include my blaster:



Boba is in there somewhere…I just have to find him. I'm currently contemplating how I'm going to attach the flak vest armour. Possibly industrial strength Velcro - sewn onto the material parts, glued on the armour side. For a newbie like me, Velcro might be within my skill set. But I'm also considering rare earth magnets or maybe Chicago screws. Lots to think about. I also need to sort out the knee armour elastic and the 'thong' elastic.The helmet is wobbling around like crazy and has some uncomfortable pressure points I will need to sort out.

Great looking bundle!  Where are your pieces from?

It's spelled "Canon", not "Cannon".

Cheers vod. All the hard armour is from Bobamaker, painted and weathered by him. I was on a waiting list for ages but I knew his stuff was worth it. Soft parts etc are from various vendors - I'll have to do up a parts breakdown at some point.
