Redditor iqwertyi went the extra mile when making his LEGO Boba Fett costume. He took care with the scale to ensure all proportions on his life-sized version of the minifig were correct. He prepped his measurements in CAD before construction, and then he spent seven weekends assembling the outfit. The finished product has pieces so large that they have to be transported in a big car, and the helmet doesn’t fit through all doors. Related to the costume’s heft and weight, Iqwertyi installed a 120mm case fan powered by a 9 volt battery to battle overheating.
He posted an album of process photos on Imgur, and it’s fascinating to watch the set of armor take shape from cardboard, PVC, tape, and paint.
