depends on who you get it from. there is fettpride armor and bobamaker armor, both outstanding quality and accuracy

I've looked, they give you the pieces, but for some reason nobody tells you how to put it all together. I need to know stuff like what kind of glue did you use, and most importantly, what did you do for the dome? Things like that, I can't find.

to attach the armor onto the vest i used velcro, the gauntlets are closed on my arm using a small hinge and the jet pack uses a special harness i got from a guy on the website..there are many ways to assemble and put on the costume, it just depends on your preference. what do you mean by what did i do for the dome?

Never doubt the usefullness of velcro. :) Well, I've seen a lot of people make a helmet out of cardboard, but it's almost impossible to make a perfect dome for the top of the helm out of the stuff. I was just wondering how one does it.

if you are familiar with pepakura, there are a few pep files for a fett helmet that you can print out which makes it easier for the dome to be more perfect...or you could try ordering a fiberglass helmet from one of the sellers if you have some cash to spend.

bobamaker has some really great stuff on his website..

Yeah, but I don't want to spend $300 one helmeat I might mess up the paint job anyways. I never heard of pepakura before. It's just that, man I really want to make a Boba Fett costume that looks good. And I'm sure I can do it with the proper information. You've already helped me more than you now. Thank you.

yea it is crazy expensive..glad i could help. and for the record i messed up on my helmet twice. i got all the way to the killstripes when my paint bled and ruined everything. i had to sand it all off and start over.

best of luck to you. if you haven't already I would join the dented helmet forum and ask around. there are very helpful and understanding people on there. if you're interested in learning how to do this pepakura,try watching this vid: [link] it doesnt explain a whole lot but it gives you an idea of what to do.

You can create our own mandalorian character or you can also do Canon characters from the films. Like Jango or Boba Fett.

Well its good to hear your with the 501st! Good on you :D
