#FettFriday: Fett's Sarlacc-proof helmet!

This is a rare Polaroid photo of #BobaFett's stunt helmet, care of ILM's Ira Keeler, in an unpainted state.

The 501st Legion's Golden Gate Garrison captured and shared an interview yesterday with the legendary special effects artist in a video shared on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0chd8qqFAns

Ira describes how the entire Boba Fett costume was made of this kind of kitchen-style rubber for the scene where Fett falls into the Sarlacc Pit.

When Ira ponders the name of a colleague from the production, he's surely referring to Glenn Randall Jr., who also wore the Boba Fett costume for some of the stunts, along with Dickey Beer and Bob Yerkes.

#TriviaTuesday: #BobaFett's pre-production costume gloves had circles. By the time of his theatrical debut in "Empire," those patches -- which derive from authentic U.S. Army -- were removed in favor of a simpler design.
