    Dec 29, 2005, 2:40 PM - Fem-Fett armor problem #1

    My wife is wanting to start work on a femmando costume as well as her dark jedi. The problem we have ran into is the fact she is rather well endowed up top and when we put my armor plates on her the lower portion sticks out quite a bit off her shirt. Has any of the fem-fetts around here had the same problem? If so how did you fix the problem? I thought about just bending the lower portions of the armor to match the angle, but I am afraid it may not look that good.

    Any suggestions would as usual be appreciated.

    I have seen a few Femmando suits around TDH, im sure if you do a search you will be able to find some decent pics of what other members have done with their suits

    Regular armor doesn't look very good on the female form ESPECIALLY if well endowed. She needs something more anatomically correct if she is going for a feminine look. I'm pretty sure this will be the most comfortable option.

    You would have to... ahem.. talk to me. Stellar Designs was a website I had up when I used to sell alot of Jango gear. I don't do that anymore & just set up projects & do small runs. I COULD do a run of Femme Fett booby armor if there was enough interest to offset the production costs.

    The best suggestion I would have is a sports bra. It would (trying to be tactful here...) reduce her bust size, hopefully to the point of comfort and making the armor look good. Here's a few pics of Fett Girl's armor. Her vest is a Jango with the armor attached with snaps.

    The sports bra idea is what we are planing on working with to start. I would love to get a set like Fett Girls in the future but it depends on if Bigkidbiggertoys gets enough interest to make a run of fem-armor or my skills at shaping sentra in the future.

    I would need at least 5 people to commit to make this work. I would supply the collar, breast & ab plates in fiberglass. The shoulder bells are easy enough to make but I could supply those as well if there is enough interest. Pm me for pricing.

    If you get your five people, how much would a set of fem-mando armour run to?
    (I know someone who might be interested depending on price)

    Go to this thread. http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=25440
    They are working on making a set of fem fett armor. Just a word of advice. Usually bringing up 4 year old threads isn't necessary. Spend a little time and read through all the boards before jumping the gun. The search function works great. Welcome and hopefully you find everything you need!
