Topic: Question: Females and a Boba Fett costume

I am not a native english speaker ,so don't be too harsh with spelling and grammar mistakes =P.

My question is:  I really would like to make a Boba Fett costume. Boba Fett only big_smile.  Now, I have seen many amazing costumes from members of the 501st- all worn by males. Are there any females wearing a Boba Fett costume at all? I was talking to Bobamaker, asking if it was possible to alter the size of the standard sized gauntlets, but that doesn't seem to be possible. I am not so much worried about my size. The problem is that I am pretty slim. Since you can't alter the size of gauntlets, chest armour etc, what  would that look like? Would it fit to a slim person? On the other side I have seen many female trooper, female royal guards and small male Boba Fetts.... any suggestions???

I haven't seen any true Female fett constumes, though I have seen Female Mandalorians. I would try Mandalorian Mercs (google) and ask there--they are far more experienced.

There are females that dress as Boba. I don't but the principle is the same, the armour is easy enough to adapt.

Re: Question: Females and a Boba Fett costume

I have seen one female in person dressed as Boba.  It was very well done, and the female had the chest armor folded slightly across the center-line to fit her chest.  The only issue was that here helmet in my opinion was way to big, she looked like a bobblehead.  Everything else was fairly spot on though.

Re: Question: Females and a Boba Fett costume

I was gonna ask the same thing....My husband has a Storm trooper costume, my 5 yearld daughter has a Ahsoka Tano...but I love Boba Fett. I found pics on a google search of a girl that has like an bra made from armour...Thats really the only modification she did to make it a female costume...I was thinking of buying the "deluxe" boba fett costume and taking it in but my problem is the chest I would love the bra made of armor but I would like someone that is good with molding plastics to take the chest plat that comes with the costume and just mold it around my boobs....can that be done I would gladly pay to have it done smile

Re: Question: Females and a Boba Fett costume

There are actually several women over at TDH that have regular Boba Fett costumes.

Re: Question: Females and a Boba Fett costume

If you want to do a screen accurate Boba (aka not "Booba" Fett) couldn't you just wear a couple sport bras or sometype of wrapping to bind down the lady parts a bit? I mean, if you're slim like you say your boobs shouldn't be too, too big (well I know if would be easy in my case, but then again I'm a B cup at best, lol).

I actually would love to be a female Boba or Clone trooper one day when I have the money for it.

Re: Question: Females and a Boba Fett costume

You can't -buy- Boba pieces in our size. BUT, you can have them custom-made, or just make them yourself. As for oversized helmets (huge problem, actually), there are actually a few Fett helmet models that are considered as 'too small' for normal-sized Fetts which fit us tiny people just fine. Or you can even get a stock small Mando helmet, and use tools to put the dent in it yourself.

If you're going to make it yourself, I recommend checking out all the material on TDH about painting. This is also a good idea for the 'small' Fett helmet models, since they're often painted wrong anyway. ^_^ Hope this helps, even if my response is a bit later than you might like.
