#FettFriday: Joe Johnston's Sketches in the "Empire Strikes Back Sketchbook" (1980)

Excerpt: "While most of the film's costume design originated in England, Ralph McQuarrie and [Joe] Johnston designed the Boba Fett outfit at Industrial Light and Magic in California. The costume was built at EMI in London, and then shipped back to Johnston to be painted. Originally the Boba Fett costume was intended to be worn by a squad of supercommandos, troops from the Mandalore system armed with weapons built into their suits. But the costume was adapted for the Boba Fett character by aging, denting, and adding a colorful paint job to one of these suits, while keeping the wrist lasers, flying backpack, and rocket darts originally intended for the supercommandos." #
