I still think they should've just gone with a body double and only used Tem when the helmet was off, similar to what they do with Pedro and Mando.

If the rumors are true of all the crazy stuff that will happen in the series, I have a feeling we’ll see where the budget went.Transparisteel is already a thing in SW. That’s still a big oof though. Why does this show feel so cheap
I thought the “fan filmy” feel was more related to the shooting location, which felt like local hills (which they were) and not some location in a galaxy far far away.From some of these shots we’ve seen, as well as some weirdness in Mando season 2 especially, it seems like they might shooting stunt versions of the costume in close-ups. I guess it’s that or they’re really just pinching a penny on this production, which seems self defeating when the Boba episode from M2 was called “fan-filmy”
It’s specifically BOBF doing some weird stuff with his armor. It still looks great overall though. I didn’t invoke Mando in the quoted post, only later when talking about shooting stunt props and costumes in closeups.The Mando Serie was estimated at $15 million per episode. I don't think it's a cheap show. People are crying over that? Please
These are mine, for my custom:

16-gauge stainless steel, formed, edges rolled, painted with aviation zinc chromate primer (which is exactly the same shade as the Union Pacific Armor Yellow model railroad paint used on the original, amusingly), mid-layer of ATSF Catwhisker Yellow, and top layer of Reefer Yellow carefully applied until it had the right shade. It gets oranger the thicker it's applied. Decal. Weathering powder (wearer's right is finished, left -- with decal -- still yet to be done, when this was taken; comparison between weathered and non). Matte sealer. Masking removed. Stainless steel screw posts epoxied to the short edges for rubber eyelets in the vest, to simplify mounting. Rubber padding from the top edge down to the angle. Back side painted. Total outlay... Honestly, hard to figure. The paints I had on hand and were used elsewhere on the costume and for others. Five bucks' worth of the steel stock I got from a local supplier. It is possible to do inexpensive without being cheap.
I'd say, with the costs spread around, the portion of the outlay that went to these shoulders was under twenty bucks. For the central figure of the series, they can frikkin' afford twenty bucks to make his armor not look like ass.
