I decided that a possible paintball armor project may be on the horizon. I feel if this is done, that this can be a turning point for this kind of thing of costuming. A transistion from just-for-show armor (no offense intended) to a workable, practicable armor for a form of combat, in this case, paintball. Doing this will prove its practicality in a reality situation (despite some realistical details that are only available in the star wars universe), rather then just seeing it in the comics or movies.
I thank, and give full credit of future templates to wizardofflight. I have the motivation, the armor tester (me)...dont worry, i'll be wearing a cup
All I need now is to figure what I'm gonna make it with. Already ruled out rubber, for the fear of melting like the wicked witch from the wizard of oz. Bucket made armor sounds like a good route, but Im afraid of the bucket material being too flimsy or weak for paintballs. I am open to any suggestions, perhaps I should just buy a bunch of different sheets of stuff, and have someone shoot me with a paintball gun, and I'll choose the one that dosnt hurt as much
Oy, my girlfriend is gonna kill me.....
