Processes

The following tips I have learned from making this costume and others, but with a bit of creativity, the same methods can be employed for any costume you would like to recreate.

Many of the things I've learned have been first hand experience, but I have also been helped emensely by individuals such as Brak's Buddy and Seeker from The Boba Fett Costume Resource and their Boba Fett Costume Forum Without their encouragement and costuming expertise, I never would have come as far as I have. Thanks guys!

I've also picked up a great deal from wonderful helpful costumers at Alleycatscratch, Obi-wan's Jedi Academy and The Replica Props Forum.
