Matt’s ROTJ Build

Concept
Hey everyone! I decided that I’ve enjoyed the process so much of making a Boba Fett costume that I am going to do another set. I’m going to try and share my build as best as I can as there will be a lot of adjustments made and new things added with my previous kit.

First couple things I’ve gotten done yesterday; 1.) sand and prime 3/4 shin tools (the jet pack adjustment tool is already done as it’s just silver and was completed from previous build). 2.) green paint selection; I think I am going with rustoleum satin spruce green and top that with rustoleum satin hunt club green. 3.) sanded and primed EE-3 (it’s a Rubies, upgrade in the future LOL). 4.) ordered a new armor kit from MinuteFett!

8/20 - Update! Today I’m going to start painting/detailing my shin tools. I also have received more paint for my armor! For the yellow damage under the body armor, I’m using the Rustoleum Inverted Line Stripe Yellow (going to be interesting using an inverted can LOL). For the shoulders and knees, the pale yellow damage will be Rustoleum satin Summer Squash (I also have a Rustoleum satin Lemon Grass that is very similar to the Summer Squash but the SS is way better). For the main yellow on the shoulders and knees, I’m using Rustoleum gloss Golden Sunset. And finally, my MoW ROTJ gauntlets will be repainted with the Rustoleum satin Claret Wine. Also got some new masking fluid in, Maskol by Humbrol (seems to be the most popular choice).

Did some work on the shin tools. The sonic beam and survival knife I would say are done! The anti-security blade still needs some black paint and tape!

8/21 - shin tools are all but done! I know the ROTJ hero only uses the sonic beam and anti-security blade, but I got the whole kit from MoW so why not do all of them! Besides, I’m still in the cross roads about whether to do hero or SE so painting them all is a necessity! I’m also practicing weathering fabric, as my flight suit needs some dirtiness. I’m using an old t shirt for practice. I bought a cheap spray bottle and filled it with water, black, and brown acrylic paint. The mixture turned out more black than anything. I’m compensating for not having an airbrush LOL

8/22 - Just did a little more practice with the spray bottle and fabric weathering. This time I had an even better canvas to practice on. When I started this building journey, I thought I could go cheap and get an XCoser Boba costume, remove all the “armor” parts, and have a somewhat serviceable flight suit. I’ve learned a lot during this build and the XCoser suit was deemed useless. That is until today at least! I used my spray bottle to weather over the top and pants of the costume using a brown and burnt sienna paint. I made sure I used more water this time in the bottle and I gotta say, I’m pretty pleased with how it looks! We will see how it dries!

Still a little wet but I’m liking the way it’s looking! I had to do another spray, added a little more paint this time.

8/23 - Felt a little ambitious last night and decided to weather my boots. I let them dry over night before taking any photos and here’s the result! It’s tough to see the color differences but I tried to show that as best as possible!

Also received some rectangular rings and nylon strapping, Both from Amazon! I couldn’t find the rings at Home Depot or Valu so I had to get a variety pack of different sizes

8/24 - Here is my heavily weathered, heavily rusted EE-3! This is a Rubies costume prop and I will most likely make an upgrade in the future but I’m pretty happy with how this turned out.

8/26 - Just got some Wookiee scalps from a seller on Etsy who goes by the name Katarra8. Really awesome work, check out her store! I will have to add the colored ties which shouldn’t be an issue.
