Well I hate to bust your expecatations as making a PASSABLE Jango Fett within this short time window that you have now till 10 DECEMBER 2005 is next to impossible. That's just my 2 cent on this matter from some one who has dabble in Star Wars costuming years before you.
As a matter of fact there is already a SINGAPOREAN Star Wars costumer called MandalorianBleahh who is already through with his JANGO FETT Costume which you can READ more in his Project Jango Fett Thread at Movie Mania Forums.

Normally I'd jump at the chance at making the gauntlete as I also want to have a Boba Fett costume in the future(but not for the AOSW trip this December). However like Overlord said, its near impossible to get something like that made from scratch in such a short period of time, not to mention every single costume & prop maker(myself included) is now busy trying to either make a costume for December or in the process of enhancing their existing costume, so as not to drop our water face when standing next to our Singaporean counterparts ;D
The only way I can think of for you to get most (if not all) of what you need is to spend the money and buy finished costume pieces. Its gonna cost though, especially if you want the jetpack as well. Shipping is of course gonna be a huge chunk of the total price.
I wish you the best of luck though. Will be great to have a Malaysian Jango Fett in our contingent!
