With the first episode of Disney+’s exclusive Star Wars show The Mandalorian now available, one cosplayer went to great lengths to create an outfit to match the program’s title character. 

Reddit user love_marmite posted a photo of their incredible Bounty Hunter uniform in celebration of the show’s release and was met with a flurry of praise.

The cosplay has a lot of attention to detail with the helmet, in particular, looking like its seen its fair share of battles over the years.

Marmite’s chest, arms, and legs were covered with armor that matches the lived-in feel of the original Star Wars trilogy and something Disney has tried to recapture with its recent films.

Additionally, the cosplay is made complete with two blasters which could likely be holstered at a moment’s notice.

A user inquired about the helmet specifically and if the cosplayer had any challenges getting it right. “I used a resin cast as a base then I 3D printed parts and added them on,” love_marmite responded.

Another asked about how much visibility the cosplayer had under the helmet and was provided with a troubling reply.

“Visibility is iffy,” Marmite wrote. “You can’t see anything low down directly in front of you so stairs are an issue.”

Still, for such an incredible work of art, the pros should strongly outweigh the cons.

What is The Mandalorian?

The Mandalorian is the first live-action Star Wars series and centers around a bounty hunter similar to Boba Fett named Dyn Jarren.

Taking place after Return of the Jedi, but before The Force Awakens, the show gives audiences a fresh look into a time period not yet explored in traditional Star Wars media.

Season one debuted on November 12 with the first episode directed by Dave Filoni, the mastermind behind the animated Clone Wars program.

A second season has already been confirmed to be in the works with the first featuring a total of eight episodes and the finale scheduled for December 27, 2019.

The Mandalorian is available right now on Disney+.
