Jango Fett 2 piece for twi'lek
« on: Mar 31, 2020, 10:31 PM »
So I'm thinking of taking my build a step further and doing a twi'lek, and I was wondering if the jango 2 piece would be a good idea since it comes in two pieces already and might be easier to cut and shape. Anyone try this?

Also considering a togruta, but not sure I can manage the tendrils and lekku.

I think you're still gonna use the dome and ear mounts of the back half, but the J2P is known for being thin plastic, so it will be pretty easy to remove what you need. Just be careful to reinforce the dome parts you use cause you'll lose even more structural strength when you start taking away plastic and once it can flex a little, you'll be repainting all the time.

Looking forward to seeing another twi'lek build though. Good luck.

How do you recommend reinforcing it?

At least one layer of fiberglass mat and resin on the inside of the dome.

I actually decided to go with a 2nd hand helmet I had, I'm not sure what it's made of though. I was nervous to cut a full helmet up but it came out pretty good actually!
