Jango Fett has always been one of my favorite characters from the Star Wars universe. Jango Fett was regarded as the best bounty hunter in the galaxy during the last years of the Galactic Republic. I fell love with his appearance when the Episode 2 Clone Wars released. Boba Fett was also one of my favorite characters but Jango’s silver armor stood out for me. I still remember playing Star Wars: Bounty Hunter on PlayStation 2. One day, I was wondering what to dress up for Halloween of 2014. I’m not like a person who spend hundreds of dollars for a one-day event so I decided to make my own.
My roommate and I went to look for armor’s material, something that is silver and shiny. We got ourselves these.
Next, we printed a publicly available blueprints and cut them out.
Using the blueprints to mark the cutting lines.
After marking all blueprints
Cut each pieces with some paddings. Blue cushions are to protect sharp edges.
After spending few hours on first day and second, we finally have all armor pieces.
Now the unique helmet. You can see all those sharp edges.
We duck taped out side to smooth out the surface.
Me trying out the helmet.
Cut front part.
Father and son.
Use paper clay and cover whole helmet and wait for it dry out.
Little bit of sandpaper and spray paint to finish off. I know it’s not super smooth but good try for the first try.
With all armor pieces and helmet ready, I bought a blue jump suit and a black vest from ebay.
Helmet and body armor.
This is the final costume look like.
Ready for battle!
