    I was also thinking of a double bladed saber, but the blades are gonna be side by side.
    I have to work out a way of doing that in PVC, but I dont think it'll be strong enough for anything other than show.


    @papa Tone, check out Jax's thread, he has a vest that is quite easy to make, and his work is FREAKIN AWESOME!

    And Alpha had his grandma make him a cool vest, I had mine made by DarthCarcinerous (?sp sorry Darth) LadySewForUs's husband. His thread is called budget flak vest or something of that nature.

    dark jedi mando. NOT Sith becaue's he was a Jedi, but likes the power of the dark side, but (another but) is usually neutral.

    hmm... seems like I kill a lot of jettisee ner vod... lol maybe I can get along with a darkside user... but then again those darn sith keep taking advantage of us mando'ade too... hmm... lol

    I'm very interested in seeing a darkside sensitive mando tho... there's not very many of them out there.

    Yeah, my guy doesn't like the sith, but like's using dark powers, he left the order due to differences with the Jedi and his home world, Aliit ori'shya taldin, so the Jedi attempted to remove his abilities, he found the darkside within and escaped.

    I'll think of a simple name for him later.

    Re: 2nd set of trash can armor

    probably this one (dekutla Jettise) because I like the laser claws on the right hand, and I think I will use a hooded cape that I can drop off easily for saber combat.

    The saber plans are: Saber claws Right hand, Guard Shoto attached to both forearms, short saber's on the outer shins (non-removable), two short handled standard sabers, and one long handle saber.

    Guns will be: two blasters each side, 1 each thigh, 1 each waist (cross over style if you know what I mean) the blaster for my right hand on the left waist and left hand on right waist.

    As for my snow, I ordered a 7.5foot kelly green el wire to start the whip, and I got a clear shield for the bucket, and ordered a Greman snow poncho to cut up for the cape and kama. Just need the white Dickies painters jumpsuit.

    Re: 2nd set of trash can armor

    I will start another thread for the Dark Jedi Mando in a few days with concept art and hopefully a start on the bucket or gauntlets, I think I'm gonna do what A'den does, more than one set at a time to prevent burn out.

    Re: 2nd set of trash can armor

    Ori'ad I like the concepts... that's a whole lot of heat on one suit tho for the dark jetti... and yeah u mean crossdraw on the hips right? I get that, in fact... I told A'd'ika he should use that on his new armor... don't think he ended up goin with it tho. There's just somethin' about crossdraw that looks so... awesome. Kandosii ner vod keep working, can't wait to see these finished!
