I think without doubt, one of my finest moments of costuming was when I went as Boba Fett. The thing is, I didn’t have any materials other than a sharpie, a craft knife and a fuck load of cardboard. Carda Fett was born. All I did was wear a similar t-shirt/trousers combo and put the cardboard armour on. Some people took the piss. Others marvelled at the simplicity, but most importantly everyone (apart from one thick turdguzzler who yelled ‘ghostbusters!’) were cheering cardboard boba on.
Last year I was a sort of Gulliver from Gulliver’s Travels. I wore a crappy tweed suit from a thrift shop and attached a bunch of plastic army men to me with string. It was super ghetto but got lots of laughs.
