I originally set out to make a Zam Wessell costume since there were pretty few female characters in the Star Wars universe and I thought it would be a cool costume. In my quest for resources, I found a forum called The Dented Helmet. Upon checking it out I got even more excited when I realized they had a forum dedicated to my second favorite Star Wars Character (only behind Darth Maul), Jango Fett! I never dreamed of making a Jango costume since I was a girl but now that I had stumbled across The Dented Helmet, how could I not? I’d have a helmet on so no one would know I was a girl and besides, how cool would it be to dress up as Jango Fett? Zam went right out the door and Jango became my passion. I made several versions of Jango- starting out with an awful Rubies helmet and making a paper mâché backpack. Jango went through quite a few upgrades until reaching the final version you see here. I custom dyed the jumpsuit. I made the shin, thigh, shoe, and cod armor as well as the backplate. I hand braided and assembled the braided belt and made the pouch belt too. I did all of the painting and weathering on all the armor, gauntlets, helmet, and jet pack. I am extremely proud of this costume and feel it is one of my very best. Who says girls can’t be the coolest bounty hunter in the galaxy? Not I!
