    hi everyone,now that ive (almost) finished my custom mando i thought i'd have a go at making a boba costume.

    My aim is make make everything for 200(about $400).and i've spent around 10 so far and i have all the plastic for the armour and shin tools.

    here's where i'm at,the chest armour is made from 3mm plastic board and painted using a layered effect.

    The surface is extremely glossy, I recommend that you spray a later of matte dullcoat on it.
