  1. Aug 22, 2012, 12:39 PM - New to the forum,Thanks for all the info. I'm almost finished with my bucket. 10 Pics #1

    My goal is to have a Mandalorian suit by this halloween. I'm going to build the armor next. I've ordered two Dickies jump suits and a friend is making my vest. I'm using a Hasbro blaster and I ordered a belt off Ebay. I'll be modifying a pair of boots and the jump suit and spats with the second suit. The cape I'll stain a canvas drop cloth and the back pack will be last if I have time.
    So far I've spent 70.00 on material for the helmet and about 15 hours. I'm already thinking of what my next helmet will be. I've really enjoyed the experience.
    Any pointers as far as fine finish work on the helmet would be appreciated. Getting this bad boy ultra smooth has been a undertaking. It's defiantly not a true to screen helmet but maybe my next one will be.
    Update here are the pics of my suit I'll be sporting this halloween, Man it takes forever to put on!

    I don't have that kind of patience. I'm letting the paint dry right now or I'd be working on it all night. I get a little obsessive. On a side note I started my pipboy 3000 build today (from Fallout 3) and my helmet is painted and drying in my shop.
    OK the Helmet is done I decided to make it battle damaged and keep it black and white. The Pip boy 3000 need sanding and paint.
