Boba boot spikes modded to my size

I bought some boot spikes from Russrep and they are beautiful, but sadly they were
a bit too big for my size 7.5 boots. I straightened one side, removed the spike, shortened the hoop, drilled a new hole and bent the hoop again in a different place.

They look good now, and they fit my boots! The only thing I need to do now, is to fix the spike to the hoop again. When I removed it, I had to dremel off the screw it was attached with, because it was impossible to unscrew it. I think I may just drill out the whole thing and attach it with another screw. Any ideas?

One boot spike modded, the other not.

Both spikes modded.

Still need to attach the spike to the hoop.

My Boushh parts have arrived!

My Boushh parts from Clothears have arrived! They are beautiful!

I got boot spats with boot discs, pants, outer tunic, inner shirt, cummerbund with spikes, cape and belt. The belt needs a hole and the cape needs to be attached to the bandolier before I can wear them, but that's soon to be fixed!

Now I just need to build the helmet, find the staff parts and assemble my bandolier. It's starting to look like something!

Boba Fettt pieces so far

I have got a lot of costume parts now, and I thought it would be nice to gather them all up for a picture. I've also got a few parts I haven't blogged yet, so it's time they get their picture taken too. :)

All my parts so far, I think I have everything except soft parts and helmet decals. The soft parts are ordered from LadySewforus, and will arrive in a few weeks time. I'm still searching for the helmet decals.

My paint. The ones in the box is for the helmet, the others are for the jetpack.

US Divers belt buckle, just need the seat belt material to finish it. Anyone have some black nylon seat belt material to spare? ;)

My beautiful aluminium studs.

Lightboard, made by Fettronics. This is version 2.1.2.

Screen accurate jetpack hooks, with cotton webbing.

My gauntlets, bought from BobbyFett. Not sure what maker, but they are fiberglass and fit me perfectly.
