The Mighty Boushh.


The Guardian Weekend magazine recently had a great spread of photographs (by Steve Schofield) of science fiction fans dressed up as their favourite characters. The crowning glory being a photograph of Chewbacca putting the kettle on in Rhyl. It was like a still from a Ken Loach Star Wars prequel. There was also a small photo of a woman wearing her Boushh the bounty hunter outfit. I'd forgotten just how great the Boushh costume was. Here's my version.

It is a cracking outfit.
I always wondered wether the outfit was something Princess Leia had knocking around at home or perhaps that the real Boushh was left tied up in just his space pants somewhere.

Great Picture!

I bet there's a Dark Horse spin-off comic about that very subject.

how did you you do shadows on boots?

do you use others special technicals?

Laurent - the black line is brush and ink and the colour is all added in Photoshop.

In the Uk before ROTJ came out I recall there was a competition in the papers to design a new bounty hunter that would be used in the film. I always assumed this was the result.
