If there's anything better than a home made Boba Fett costume, it has to be this Lego Boba Fett costume. This little kid will be one of the most popular and happiest kids next Halloween, as his face shows:
These photos were sent by his dad, Gizmodo reader Brad Methvin:
The scale came out perfect because minifigs are 40mm. My son is 40 inches. I originally made this for Halloween, but DragonCon was do-able so, I rushed to finish so my 3-yr old would be ready for the parade. I was actually finishing it on the MARTA (Atlanta Rapid Transit). When we arrived but he saw Darth Vader, all bets were off. He was not going near the parade or any Star Wars characters. I had to carry all the costume parts all over downtown Atlanta until we made it back home, where he asked me if he could put on his costume. (ahh being a parent)
His 8-year old brother, (who I SHOULD have begun with) will be getting a Jango costume on a larger scale for Halloween. I'll send it when I get it done.
Yes, Brad is probably the coolest dad on his block. Probably the whole city, and half of the US too. This one beats the AT-AT couple costume—although not on dorkiness. [Thanks Brad]
