Introduction: Starwars Boba Fett Blaster Halloween Costume

This is how i built my Boba Fett Starwars Blaster for my Halloween costume. I wish i had better documented building process but, it was not to hard.

Step 1: The Blaster

I used a Rebel Alliance Nerf Blaster i bought at wal-mart for $20 bucks. It was blue and orange. I took out all the screws holding it together and tore out all the guts and the barrel. Then I drilled holes just large enough for led lites to be passed through the holes. The leds came from a necklace a found at the local party supply store for $3. Note: the pet laser attached to the blaster.

Step 2: Making the Stock

The stock is made from wood. I found a section of 3/4 inch dowel left over from another project for the stock and a scrap piece of 2x4 is the butt plate cut to shape using a skilsaw. Bored out a hole in the 2x4 butt plate with a drill for the dowel to be inserted and held in place with hot glue. The dowel then goes into the back plate of the blaster. I had to bore a hole here also using a cone shape metal grinder used in metalworking made just for drills. You can find them at lowes hardware. The dowel is then hot glued in place and i also tapped a screw through the blaster into the dowel inside...

Step 3: Attaching Your Hardware

Now is the time to paint your blaster. I highly suggest you paint the blaster before you insert and hot glue the led lights. you can go back with a artist brush and touchup areas later.

Step 4: Attaching the Sling

I used a ak-47 sling for the blaster. The attachment bars are picture frame mounting hardware left over from building the knee armor. I used a drill to bore out a hole in the plastic blaster then tapped in screws and attached the sling.

Good innovation and nice start. A few tips Logic Bomb which will help your future modifications and closer match to Boba Fett costume.

1. Please note that there are two variations for Boba Fett (both blaster and costume) The colours of the costume you chose is from ESB (Empire Strikes Back) namely green with touches of yellow and red/brown, rather than the blue green combination from ROTJ. The blaster you pictures however is from ROTJ (Return of the Jedi), the original ESB version uses the Webley flare gun with straight barrel (flash tube).

2. For greater authenticity switch your camo under suit to a blue flight suit or overalls as worn in both movies. It should not be too expensive if you shop around.

3. Last tip is to either modify the blaster or armor to match either ROTJ or ESB as you prefer. If modifying the blaster the fit a standard (straight barrel - aluminium silver) and buy a 4 x 20 thin scope (available on Ebay). you may wish to also fit your sling mounting from end of stock to bottom of handle as in the original.

Hope these tips help but please check out the tips and costuming guidelines at 501 legion website

Isn't that his grenade launcher?

no its actually a stormtrooper/clonetrooper rifle.

author

stormy rifle is shorter and more rectangular and the clone trifle is far longer and looks more sophisticated technologically. this looks like your average blaster that you'd find for sale from any weapon store on nar shadaa or Taris.

Yea.

a few improvements you should build shinguard's and big boots, his trousers where Grey with pockets below the knees and one boot had spikes on the toecap.other than that i could probably mistake you for a mandalorian

Use a large flat head screwdriver and gently force the 2 sides apart.
