Howdy all. My name's Bobby ..and I'm from the very northern and very snowy (this year, at least) state of Maine. I dunno if anybody here is from the Maine or even New England area ..but I'm perfectly happy being the first if not. Anyway, I've been bouncing around and looking at threads for a few days and I have to say you all have some amazing talents. I'm eventually going to be attempting to construct my own custom Mando helmet and perhaps a blaster or two ..and if I enjoy the process, maybe a full costume.
As of now, however, I'm still running through some preliminary sketches and trying to come up with a style that suits me, though I think I might have nailed my last sketch just about perfectly. I considered buying a helmet kit, figuring it'd be more likely to stay together, but I just can't swing the price for one right now.. so I've been mostly studying the scratch build threads ..and wow, again, amazing work all of you who've done it. I just don't know if I can even get a paper bucket made from the awesome templates available..
I mostly just wanted to say hi, as I've been dropping my two cents in various threads without any real introduction.
