Vult Tavik's Jango Fett (Pic Heavy)- COMPLETE!
« on: Feb 06, 2013, 10:51 AM »
I will continue to update my beloved Vult Tavik kit, but the Cosplay bug has bitten me more than any single kit can support. I have several other costumes in the works, but after meeting Temura Morrison at CVI this year- I knew that I wanted a Jango Fett. This is also a kit I wanted to make with the best materials/ components available. I knew going into this that it was going to be a very expensive undertaking, so I made a deal with my wife that I would sell stuff from my other hobbies (guitar collection mainly) to offset the cost- and it's a good thing I did since I am now at $4k invested into this bad boy. So here we go:

The shopping List:
1. HELMET: Cruzer BKBT
2. FLIGHTSUIT: Bleahhh
3. FLACKVEST: LSFU
4. GLOVES: Amazon
5. GAUNTLENTS: MOW with Darkside aluminum upgrades.
6. CHEST AMOR: Cruzer CC
7. BACK ARMOR: Cruzer CC
8. SHOULDER BELLS: Cruzer CC
9. COD: Cruzer CC
10:THIGH ARMOR: Cruzer CC
11.SHIN ARMOR: Cruzer CC
12.BOOT ARMOR: Cruzer CC
13.HOLSTERS: Cruzer
14.AMMO BELT: SEEKER
15.GIRTH BELT: making it myself following Cruzers WIP and ebay bolo supplier 
16.BOOTS: Crow62 Repro's
17.STANDARD JET PACK: MOW Z-6 (Kamino paint) & Dark Side Light Beacon
18.WESTAR PISTOLS: Master Replicas
19. Knee Armor: Dark Side CC Run ??
20. JET PACK HARNESS: Seeker
21. RF Servo- Sgtski (& Brother Kyle)


I don't want to do a 100% full WIP like I already have on TDH, but if anyone has any questions about how I did a certain thing- just ask. I will go into great detail and take additional pictures if needed to explain anything you need.



1st Item came from ebay:


Then the rest started to arrive:




I cleaned up and started the Jetpack assembly:


With some more painting done:


I made my own girth belt under Cruzer's guidance:







I "weathered" my Crow62 Repro Jango boots"


Then I added my buttons for the armor:


A secret I learned for keeping the flight suit tucked under the shoe armor was to sew an elastic band and snap it to the top of the boot (under the armor):


The rest of the leg armor is attached with epoxying the "female" snaps inside the armor pieces and having elastic retaining straps run through button holes I had sewn into my flight suit to create this look:

I just found the "Canon" armor section which is where this should really be. Can a mod please move it there for me?
Thanks!

I am so stealing that snap under the armor trick, great way to cover the top laces and keep the flight suit down.

Check your thigh plates, vod.  http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/File:JangoFett-OP.jpg  He looks to have the "swoop" on the outside.  My friend in the 501st has his like this picture.

Looking good, though!

Wow, that's amazing. Could you explain how you made the girth belt in more detail? It's outstanding.  :o

The swoop seems to be on the outside... He's got it right.
