The Fett getting ready for the ladies. Bitches love bounty hunters. (Taken with Instagram)
This is Russell’s helmet… but this isn’t Russell…
I made this helmet….
That’s not the Fett you buffoon.
You did an amazing job on the helmet. And indeed that is not Russell lol. He gave the helmet to me because he knows I have a sick obsession with Star Wars (not as much as Patrick though, Lord knows). The picture was originally going to be a spoof of all the girls who take racy pictures with the helmets on in their bra and underwear. Sadly, none of the guys exactly felt like putting on any lingerie, so instead we decided to do a joke shot of him getting ready.
I love anti-male sexism though. Nobody had a problem with ME, being a girl, taking a scandalous picture wearing the helmet. Put it on a guy though (awww no boobies!) and it suddenly turns into a huge deal. Some people need to learn to take a joke.
THE INTERNET IS SERIOUS!
Hey, dawg. I don’t know you but
1. Awesome job on the helmet. Really and truly - I actually have a picture on my phone of me with whom I’m assuming is the one called Russel at Animazement because his costume was dope as fuck. I was even more impressed when Sara brought it home (I live with her) and I realized it wasn’t just a repainted Boba Fett helmet but one apparently made from scratch. So props. That said,
2. Chill, please. From what I have been told you have taken issue with these pictures being taken and are taking it as disrespect, which I don’t understand. It’s people having fun with your helmet, and I can tell you first hand that while they’re joking around and posing with it, they love it to death. All three of us are HUGE and unapologetic Star Wars fans (myself far more than them, as Sara pointed out) so to take that as anything but what it was - playfulness - is a little overly sensitive, don’t you think? And this is coming from me, someone who tends to be pretty overly sensitive myself, but at least I have the sense to realize when I’m being a baby. I’m a musician and I’ll put it this way: If I saw a video on YouTube of an old man in a diaper with one of my songs playing out of shitty laptop speakers in the background I would consider it the height of awesomeness. Trust me, I know them and they mean it as nothing but a compliment in a roundabout way.
That said, shame on Sara for calling it Boba Fett’s helmet. Read up on the Mandalorians there, bitch.
No one said anything about anti-male sexism. The point is that this MANDALORIAN helmet was made specifically for costume, not to display yourself half naked and wearing it. If you wore it instead of your male friend, it still wouldn’t be okay. Garrett put days of hard work into this helmet and takes his craft of costuming seriously. To see it put on with the full intention of being a “joke” is quite insulting.
If you’re going to goof around with someone else’s work of art, I suggest you give the helmet back to its maker and buy your own at Toys”R”Us.
And just as a side note: People should be credited for the art they create. It’s easy to appear disrespectful when you don’t. You may not have known that Garrett was the one who created this lovely helmet, but coming across your own art you slaved over without credit can be a little disheartening. He has every right to be sensitive, just as I’m sure you would be if you were not credited for your artwork.
