The Custome Mandalorian I am working on, I was planning on using a black jumpsuit, with a black vest, and then do red armor with some blue trim.
The helmet is already painted, it's got a black over all color, red trim, and then two blue fang-spike things on the upper helmet spiking just above my eyes.
So, I'm having trouble finding something that will work for a flight suit and a vest. The flight suits that I find at Surplus stores are all army green, and the material they are made out of isn't the best material for dying.
So, I decided I'm going into Reno tomorrow to find a flight suit and a vest, but I have no idea where to go. Jaster over at Mandalorian Warrior suggests to try Sears or JC Penny's for jump suits.
Also, another question I had...I'm a hefty guy (Power to the fat people!) and that's the reason I decided against making Stormtrooper armor. Is there a way I can desguise the fat? I was thinking of adding a Flynn-like sash going over one shoulder and tucking under the belt and then flapping out over the cod piece, maybe that will distract from my stomach and add a more shoulder buffness to the costume.
What do you guys think? Any ideas? You're the experts here.
