Welcome to my nerdy world of costuming

In this blog I will, to some extent, document costumes I make and describe how I did the different things.

I will post some pics and info around my stormtrooper armor, which I finished in the fall of '08. But most importantly show how I'm coming along with my current project, which is the ESB version of Boba Fett.

Enjoy your stay!

I've made a cape!!

Here's a little update... I went to Sandvika with my wife yesterday, looking for fabric for a cape. I found something that sort of matched, but getting the excact colors is a neverending quest, as there really aren't any good lighted images of Boba from ESB showing the colors.

I sewed tha cape together after TK409's measurements (36" long, 30" wide), used an exactoknife to make some rips and tears and then I put it in the washing machine for 4 hours. Today, after it dried, I found some matte black spraypaint I had lying around, and some light brown. I misted black all over the cape to dull the colors down and added some extra at the bottom. I also used the brown to dull down the orange on the stripe, as it was really bright. I'll post some comparison pics later on.

The weathering on the bottom need to be more frayed, but that's something that will happen over time, so I'm not gonna spend to much time "making" it.
