    Re: New Guy here

    Just like to say all you guys have been a great source of information and support and thanks a ton.
    NOW! Big question....How long is the two cuts on the chest plate? and are they center or a little off center. Are they two inches long by (top)1/8 (bottom) 1/4?
    Thanks

    Hey everyone! I like to say I'm back!!!
    About two months ago I lost my job and had to start all over and just stop all personal projects.
    I missed comic con and a bunch of So Ca functions but now that everything is rolling again I focusing on finishing up my Jango.

    "Question"
    How are the two cuts on the armor, on the left side of the chest armor.
    Size and and placement.
    Thanks guys and girls
    Rob

    Is the 'but' in the start of your question suppose to be 'low'??

    So I ran into an issue with how do I connect the shin guards on!
    Solution! pro magnets! I gooped 4 pro markers onto cut off socks and then pro magnets onto the back of the guards. they worked great! I'll get some pics up soon.
    FYI

    Interesting idea. On the real suit, there was elastic that went through the jumpsuit and around the leg to keep the shin guards on.

    Hi Rob,

    I don't have much response to say about armor, But I wanted to say HI to a fellow OCSWS member.


    Glad to know you are working on your costume again!
    My nephew has not done much on his. He got busy with work.

    Anyway,

    TTFN

    Sorry I haven't had time to post pics of my shin guards but! Here are my new personally made amo pouches.


    The big issue I had was that the leather didn't match the bolo cord.
    I used...
    1st Tandy eco flow dye water based "Timber Brown"
    2nd Tandy med. brown antique.
    They looked great! But! They didn't match.
    Solution!
    I tooke Tandy "Mahgoney" eco flow dye water based and watered it down. I did a quick whip on whip off wash which gave them a better red tone.
    I know a lot of work but I can now make these for other Jangos!

    Ok, so I rub-n-buff my gauntlets and was wondering is that what everyone else is doing to their Jango?
    Here is the costume 90% done.

    I'd say start a thread on the Cargo Hold if you haven't already.
