    Feb 26, 2008, 8:35 AM - New Mando Signing up! #1

    Hey, I came across this site about a year ago and it got me into thinkign I could make a set of Mando armour. Unfortunately I lost the link to the site but as luck would have it I found it again.
    I have had so many ideas towards creating a set of armour and can't wait to start. Reading through the forums the community seems close, friendly and extremely helpful. Hopefully I'll make some friends and get help from some great creative minds.
    I'm hoping to make a custom mando set and add my own colour scheme and little extras.
    Any help/advice to a newbie would be greatly appreciated. Hopefully the community has room for one more dreamer :P

    Su cuy'gar ner vode.

    Both of you welcome! You will find that here, the people are truly wonderful and helpful. There is a wealth of information and help abound here, and people are all too willing to help.

    The crafters here make amazing things and I am sure over time your Mando'ade personas will come together for you, whether they be a Fett or a Custom.

    If you are interested in customs make sure to check out http://Mercs.Firespray.Net you'd be just as welcome over there and its like the 501st of Custom Mandos.

    Hey guys, welcome!! always cool to see some new mandos in the ranks, especially customs. everyone's really helpful here, and you'll def be able to get some stuff goin.

    Vince Noir: To get started, probably the best place to go is the search tab, on the top of the page. Whatever you want to start with, I would say armor or helmet, type it in and you'll find tons of stuff. I started with my bucket, and have finally finished it. There's tons of different items from different sellers on here.

    If you want to make your own stuff, get a ton of sintra (styrene advertisement board) and start making your own. Wizardofflight has a template for pretty EVERY non-soft costume part, so you have patterns too. Well, that's about it for m shpiel, good luck, and welcome again.

    AncientFett: Welcome to you as well. I see you've already gotten your foot in the door. congrats. What suit u doin? and as far as Richie's, I've heard good and bad, but mostly that it's pretty decent stuff, just takes a while sometimes. I would suggest sellers on the forums in the future though, because they all make wonderful stuff. Good luck on the suit, and I can't wait to see some progress pics.
