Step 9: The final product!

I must admit, the panels added a considerable amount of weight to the costume. I think it nearly doubled the weight, but it still is comfortable enough to wear trick or treating. When I do get tired of wearing it, I have a simple Han Solo costume underneath and transform into the live version of everyone’s favorite space smuggler. With a nine year old Boba Fett by my side, I just need to convince my wife to wear the Slave Leia costume and we’ll have the perfect Star Wars Halloween.
Dork Daddy this is awesome! I have an additional idea I've seen done elsewhere... Take a pair of nylons or see-through nylon material, LIGHTLY paint the metallic gray color. When you press your face into the nylon from the back side, it's looks like your encased in carbonite but you can still move your face and see through it. Very well done!
That is an awesome idea! Thanks. Since I didn't drag out Han this Halloween, I am going to add the nylon face for next year. It gives me some time to experiment.
Sure, you can get all bent out of shape about accuracy... but the fun-factor, and the creative-factor, and the AEWSOME-factor more than make up for it. <br> <br>My Optimus Prime Halloween costume would be proud to trick-or-treat next to your carbonite costume. <br> <br>-Dork Daddy <br>www.dorkdaddy.com
That costume is just Awesome!
Thanks everyone for the kind words and encouragement. I appreciate the suggestions for my wife's costume. I showed her the Girl Boba Fett http://www.instructables.com/id/Girl-Boba-Fett-Costume/ and she did consent to something similar. Boushh would fit her modesty concerns too...
I think it would also be cool to do a full face paint in the same colour, similar to the street performer live statue thing you see every once and a while. <br><br>Awesome costume man! :D So clever.
Thanks for the compliment! I was thinking the same thing about the face paint. I'm going to bring it to work on Monday, but I might hold off on the face paint until afterwards since it would be hard to type on a computer all day wearing it. That is why I opted for the low budget &quot;regular&quot; Han costume.
That's awesome! Your wife could also do a Boushh costume...
This is just awesome :D
What a cool tradition for you and your boys! Guess this ups the stakes for next year.
This is awesome! It's totally recognizable to anyone even remotely geeky, and yet looks reasonable to do. Good luck convincing your wife to go with the Leia costume - agree it would be a great ensemble cast.
Great Job!
great costume!
