Mythos Boba Fett cape and Kama, I need ideas please
« on: Nov 03, 2015, 07:28 AM »
I want to base my cape and Kama on the Mythos Boba Fett suit.
In case you don't know what it is, here are pics of the suit.










I was thinking of using Duck cloth or canvas, I may be able to find a material similar to the Mythos Fett at Jo Ann's fabrics.

The Kama I'm pretty sure is a trapezoid shape with a Fett style pouch attached to it, I was thinking of having a separate belt to hold it up.


The big question is the cape, the cape has me mystified.

Any ideas of it's possible shape and attachment?




I'm good at building sabers, I may add those well. ;D


Thanks for any help that you can share.

Lynn

Ok, the closeup on the Loanstar Germany shows a fabric weave known as faille, probably cotton and or linen...maybe even silk?  The darker one second from bottom seems to be cotton gauze.
I will say to get the fold/drape you want a canvas or duck may be way to stiff unless you can really wash it many times.
As for the cape design it seems more like a poncho that slips over the head.  I recommend getting an old sheet and just start experimenting for shape and size.

Thanks for your knowledge!
OK, so the canvas won't work for the drape cape thing, but it should be OK for the Kama.
It looks like the Kama has a bit of "pucker" across the top, similar to the look of a drawn across curtain, to make it look rumpled along the top instead of being a piece of straight across fabric, does that look like that to you?

I thought about that, but I also thought of making it bigger across the top and pulling it across the belt to bunch it up to give it that pucker factor.

depends on what you're going for... if you look at the mythos statue the kama looks far more pleated than lonestars it's your call vod.

My Kama gets bunched up at the top because it's on a belt, but it doesn't look pleated like that. You can't even really see the bunching once I put my girthbelt on, which is a good thing because it doesn't look great. If you're going for the pleated look I'd say you're probably going to need to sew it.

you could make a belt out of the same fabric an sew your pleated kama onto it maybe have a Velcro fastening so it's not too bulky... just an option.

I really love the look of the Mythos Fett and I'm pumped to see someone else putting together one of the forums. I've been meaning to update my own Fenn Shysa inspired armor set to do kind of a Mythos Shysa and your thread is a huge help for reference photos. So thanks and good luck!

It has been a looooong while but have you made any progress on this? I would love to see what you came up with in terms of how you did the kama and cape
