Re: my custom mandalorian costume

Great idea ner'vod!  You'll have to be careful with those so they don't get knocked off and lost, but REALLY great look!  Fits perfectly for that Tribal/Hunter character you're going for! 

There's a eBay store that sells T-visors if you want to just buy rather then make.  I think This One is what you need; as I THINK you're using a DP/Rubies helmet right?  If not, there's a couple other sizes to choose from

Re: my custom mandalorian costume

I remember when I was 10 and AOTC had just come out, I dressed up like Jango (or at least tried to) with a blue snow jacket, gloves, ski mask, jeans and a belt, and I had two automatic rubber band pistols and me and my friends had rubber band gun wars. But it wasn't anything like this, I like what you guys have done on that custom armor!

Nice touch with the spikes, a little nod to Mandalorian Crusaders.

Re: my custom mandalorian costume

Sweet armor Regimas. The spiked helmet and skulls add a great touch. I also like the silver marks.
My armor has similar marks but more round.

Re: my custom mandalorian costume

snow boots eh? good thinking.

Re: my custom mandalorian costume

its all i have for now tongue

anyways, im just gonna pull aside the curtain here and i will get some pics up later,

after about an hour of work i was able to hook up my mp3 player inside my helmet.
and im not just talking about sticking my mp3 in there and throwing on some headphones.

i took apart the headphones till it was just the essentials, and then built it into my helmet.
the wires run around the back of my head.

The mp3 player itself is held in front by Velcro. a totally self contained mp3 compatible helmet.

do you how awesome it is to listen to AC/DC in a mando helmet!
pretty soon my helm is gonna weigh like 20 pounds....

Re: my custom mandalorian costume

i have done a lot of work over the past few days.

1st of all, gauntlets are finished, just need to paint them and add some greeblies (i love that word)
i also made a sidearm, im working on a sniper, and i have to paint my rifle.

i found some cell phone cases at a dollar store, bought 7 of them, and now i have a perfect replica of boba's belt. so don't waste money on eBay boba belts, just look for the right cell phone cases.

and lastly, i bought some cardboard, poster board and a ton of hot glue. and this weekend i am going to make a second set of armor. yes i am going to attempt to make it out of cardboard.

i am having a friend over who also has a mando costume, so some cool pictures of all my new stuff and possibly some pictures of 2 mandos(duking it out maybe?) will be up in a week or so.

Re: my custom mandalorian costume

very feminine.

Re: my custom mandalorian costume

i know you guys don't like updates without pictures, but i thought i would post anyways.

i got a jumpsuit (courtesy of jaerog big_smile)

i finished my gauntlets, almost finished my guns, and made a cod piece (about time too)

so pretty soon i will be proud to say its finished big_smile

(make sure you get a jumpsuit, orthar, mccoy and now i will tell you, it lowers the temp like 10 degrees.)
