<p>The faceless Boba Fett stands out as one of the most mysterious of all the personae in the vast "Star Wars" universe.</p>

<p>For Andrew Miller, a 41-year-old office worker who spends his days at a reference law library in East Lansing, Mich., being Boba Fett -- or at least looking and acting just like the intergalactic bounty hunter -- has become a second life of sorts. When I met Miller at <a href="http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-57601015-1/rounding-up-cnets-pictorial-coverage-of-dragon-con/" >Dragon Con</a> in early September, I knew I finally came across the Boba Fett fan I'd always been searching for.</p>

<p>You can't just go out and buy a Boba Fett costume and say the deed is done, especially if you want to do it right. When Miller created his first Fett costume at age 27, little did he know he'd be spending many years after tweaking, changing pieces often, and eventually come close to achieving a film-quality representation of the Boba Fett costume as seen in the 1983 sci-fi spectacular "<a href="http://news.cnet.com/2300-17938_105-10016726-1.html" >Star Wars: Return of the Jedi</a>."</p>

<p>Miller told CNET he has spent "hundreds and hundreds" of hours perfecting the outfit. It took six months of nights and weekends to build the original suit, and Miller has since then upgraded almost every piece of the outfit as more reference material hit the Internet. The community and resources from <a href="http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/" >The Dented Helmet</a>, a collective of Boba Fett costume enthusiasts, have substantially helped Miller along the way.</p>
