    Come on, its Boba Fett. How could I resist not doing a cosplay of the legend. lol. Cosplaying for the fandom, not for Definite Accuracy
    As always its on budget.
    Materials Used :
    Cardboard
    Eva 2mm Foam.
    Wood Glue.
    Random stuff lying around the house ie. Bottles, caps, straps.
    Papermache.

    and...a bowl. @.@

    So yes a bowl.
    Why, Simple that helmet is a pain. lol But I had just the right bowl to use to papermache the shape out of. I used a tape to know how far the dept i wanted it to go.

    well...the pic pretty much explains itself doesnt it. I did 3 layers , removed, then coated with wood glue to reinforce.
    [​IMG]

    Next up was to find the armor pieaces. For this I looked up a hottoys referance.
    [​IMG]


    Steadied the cardboard and started eye scaling and cutting out.
    [​IMG]


    Got a shirt and layed them out and worked out the scale to fit me
    [​IMG]

    After this was the next guard....which was..SHEER luck i got it right...ish
    [​IMG]

    Tada...
    [​IMG]

    Next i worked out how i wanted the back pack to fit me, along with the front neck guard. I already knew i wanted them both to attach to each other.
    So scaled on some fiber board and then to cardboard.
    [​IMG]

    One pieace cut.
    [​IMG]

    The I folded it over and was pretty happy with it.
    [​IMG]


    Next up was the Shins. I had to look up competed ones and eye scaled out my templates.
    [​IMG]

    Some fiddling around... ;/
    [​IMG]

    Not the most impressive looking thing..but...
    [​IMG]

    BOOM! ( For the record my thing is using cardboard as a base for the basic shape then covering over with eva foam to appear neat. Then dremel, edges to make them uniform.)

    [​IMG]

    The shoulders wernt that hard.
    [​IMG]

    Pretty soon I covered up all the basic armor parts.And began coating them with Wood Glue to them them a sleek finish.
    [​IMG]


    Just another angle
    [​IMG]

    Next up where the Arm guards....im a little funny cause i see a few variants between them . But im not going to 100% accuracy. Im just happy to have it was recognized as such.
    [​IMG]
