Its a gun. some mandalorians have them.
and it wont make me buy a visor any faster if you keep telling me too. moneys tight, and im working on it. kinda trying to....you know...get a car ....maybe.....
!!! lol. Car-schmar! Use a jetpack like all respectable Mando's do! lol, Okay, no pestering about the visor!... for now!
I thought it might be a gun but it seemed a little low down, you'd have to either bend down to reach it or bend your leg up to be able to draw. Either way not exactly a quick draw! That's why I asked.
I like the fingerless gloves, very reminiscent of Montross. I don't know how feasible this would be for you (guess it depends upon how confident you are about sewing), but you may find having the short outer sleeve on your flightsuit will give you some place for the pipe from your gauntlet to go into that doesn't move any piece of armour it shouldn't (it also seems to stop people from trying to see where it is attached! - weird but true)
Excellent progress so far though, I like what I'm seeing. Are you (or have you) fibreglassing the gauntlets? (hard to tell for certain from the colour of them in the picture).
Oh and I'd turn the belt around so that the buckle sits at the back, just my opinion. Keep it up and let us know how your girlfriends armour is getting on.
Edit: Can I just state for the record, that I am not having a dig at anyone's costume, far from it. I delight in seeing what others produce for their costumes and how they adapt to problems they encounter. I also try not to come across as snobbish or with a superior attitude. I realise that not everyone has access the the same materials or funds and so may have to use different items or adapt things. None of that matters to me, I offer my advice and people are free to take it or leave it as they wish, I will not be offended.
My apologies to Regimas if my comments about the visor on this thread have appeared repetitive and/or annoying. Between here, KOTE Mandos, TDH and the others, I genuinely loose track of who I've said what to and when.
By the way, thanks for the comment on my reputation Regimas, I understand what you mean and hope you can understand my desire to see everyone in the same league - even if I can sometimes come across as a little.. irritating.
