Re: Making a costume

I've never made a Mandalorian costume before, but I know there's sites out there that can help with that. Try googling it.

From what I do know though, you'll have to buy the helmet from somewhere, either starwarsshop.com or ebay or something. I'm not sure which brand of helmet's best, though. For the flight suit just some grey-blue cloth sewn into jumpsuit style. Or if you really want you can try to get one of those mechanics coveralls, they're kinda the right color. Armor building I don't know anything about. The Wookiee braids can be done by buying some of those fake hair extensions maybe.

But don't trust me on any of that, the sites and other members here are more knowledgable on this than I am.

Reality doesn't care if you believe in it.

Re: Making a costume

We actually have a starting point for making a costume... in the Manual called Costume Guide: http://bobafett.com/manual/costume/

The resources, images, and links should be helpful reference.

Re: Making a costume

Thanks so much! I looked on ebay, they had peices of the armor and some completed costumes but I'm tiny any theres no way it would have ever fit. Ebay had helments too but I'll try starwarsshop.com.

Re: Making a costume

This site here http://www.tk409.com/fett.html is just great for Fett costuming. There are lots of reference pictures and you can even buy items and costuming parts from it.
