ahhh...lol...I was looking at pics before you added the kama.
Discussion on 2nd set of trash can armor within the Expanded Universe Bounty Hunters forum, part of the Star Wars Universe category; ahhh...lol...I was looking at pics before you added the kama.
ahhh...lol...I was looking at pics before you added the kama.
Oh yea, thats cardboard slathered in bondo.
Just bumped your Old Republic Mando.
Adonian don't u dare scrap this project ner vod! u're still original! lol
!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DONT MAKE ME MAD VOD!!! keep the dang custom!!
I love that custom, and you have to keep it!
and ITS STILL ORIGINAL!
Dont make me steal your whip vod!
I was just thinkin about that as I was walking to my mail box... OK OK I'll do more soon. I gotta perfect my ear caps anyway.
Ive got a question for everyone... I have 4 eyes... When I take off the bucket, I want to still be a little menacing, I was thinking of a skull face balaclava and something like maybe a wig with some really ugly alien like hair to hide some of my face.
keep your face covered in stubble. OH! and when you go trooping get some of that face scar stuff and put a few scars on your face. Create like the signature adonian scar
shaved head. Those sort of things!
You could go with something like this...I bought one of these but just a solid black one.
I could use that balaclava and some dreads
lol YES!!! it would be even more Pred-ish! lol btw... Hydra's Umi mando has a fur loincloth... ur's is a fur wrap, and... let's be honest ner vod, her mando's not a Wampa Slayer! lol BTW... I can make it more pred-ish if that'll make u feel better, but I think it looks pretty awesome as is!
i totally agree with kal on this one.
and he's right YOU'RE A WAMPA SLAYER, you just....... dont really think ahead
next time i'll bring a pocket torch to melt my feet
haha i should draw another sketch of you doing just that
Adonian mate, don't worry about it, there's always more than one mando who has to work in wintery conditions.
Besides, you're doing the male outfit
it was mostly her bucket... I thought she had a Kama like mine, but its a hood.
So its cool. Besides my fangs look cool.
Adonian that helmet is freakin' awesome! I love the light and double antena, and the blood. Very kick***.
I've been bouncing ideas around from making a bucket of my own before or after I get that one from Saz. I'm considering either an antena and light set up, more like a RC bucket, on going for a cleaner look by just having a fin on the top of the helmet like a clone trooper bucket. Or maybe all three.
I still plan on using an EL Light around the visor like A'den did on both of his, I ordered blue mirror tint to put on the clear lexan I have for the visor, so BLUE EL and BLUE MIRROR, I hope it looks cool.
As for the blood splatters, at first I was looking at it and thinking AH MAN I messed it up, but the more I look at it I like it.
Did a little more work on the ear's, I put the exposed electronics on the right ear, and plan to put some small greebles on both ears.
Gotta do sanding and filliing still, I want to really customize these ears.
did you get my PM???
Anyway, the ears look GREAT!!!
Oh, yeah, I dont have any pep files other than Master Chief, Jet pack and Revan dome.
O.K, let me know if you want any of the others.
Adonian your blood spatters look GREAT! Don't change a thing... altho if u want to add the dreds I would def think that would be a great addition, makes it more predish... which I like... I think I've said that before but oh well...lol AND... once u add in the arctic camo pattern yours will be unique for sure. Plus, can't beat those fangs ner vod. Altho your visor pattern is going by the popular side now.
I hope if I add the dreads, when I pull off the bucket that they dont come off with the bucket... Not very threatening if you ask me...
Just see my guy, he has you down, and you're gonna die, he decides to take off the bucket so you can look into the eyes of your doom... and his dreads fall off
lmao yeah that would be a bit too funny to be intimidating! but the dreads hanging out the bottom of the bucket would be awesome!
Coming along well adonian!
Definatly going to be very popular! Im kinda jelous at the moment
Ok color options.... Silver, white, orange, blood/black mix.
Also, where can i get a template for a Verp?
for you snow mando? I wouldnt use orange but silver, white, bits of black and definatly the blood
and like i said, I wish i had your custom glad you decided to keep working on it
Red or Silver?
silver goes better with your mando i think
would be less human too.
Ok I'll go with silver unless there are other opinions before tomorrow night when I get paid.
I really like the silver but i guess i just told you that
the good thing.... I dont think I'll need much padding in the bucket huh?
haha you've got a point there
just going to point out i prefer your custom without the dreads, but hey its your custom
dont gotta always ware them. Only once in a while, gotta do somethin about the face first.
completely understand, and like i said i would get some fake scar stuff
and some of those contacts that change your eye color. Like some cool red ones or something
actually thinkin about that, but I already have 4 eyes, so they'd be hard to see, but was thinking of "dark elf" color:
That is intense! definatly works with the whole snow deal!
the funny thing is (and this is no lie) my eyes are actually that blue already
or extremely close!
yeah, i like em, i'm sure they can be seen behind the glasses, they're $35.00 each no Rx, but $250.00 Rx, guess I'll do NO Rx.
Id get them if i were you! they would look great with your mando!
My natural is green, but my son has light blue, he's so lucky, he's gonna be popular with the girls (or more than he already is).
trust me, girls love the blue eyes! (really happy i got em )
I like my dark green eyes... makes me more fearsome and foreboding...lol
haha the blue just makes all the girls go aweeeeee and take pictures of you but keep them zoomed up on your eyes.
lol yeah I'd say that's a fun time... lol
let me just tell you, ITS VERY CREEPY!
lmao yeah well... I fell in love with my wife when I figured out she could hold her own against me and could kick the osik out of most other ppl! lol oh well, I guess I really am a mando at heart! lmao Honestly tho, I dunno what it is but girls seem to LOVE the blue eyes.
maybe we should ask a girl
Yeah, lets ask Ordeyn or NomadBride..
My son is lucky, he's only 9, but half the girls in his class just love him.
haha i know the feeling (its a good feeling by the way)
You guys are crazy...
haha not the first time someones said that to me
well I do work with crazies
haha i forgot about that! quite a job you have there adonian! probably well paying though
$24.00 pm shift, $26.00 pm weekend.
Except today, I only got $4.00 per hour... On call, so I had to sit around a listen for the phone... like I was listening for the phone
better than having no job!
too true, but I dug myself really deep into a credit hole, and it's really hard to get out with that and a mortgage, but I try.
At least I'm not drownin.
I do have to save now for X-mas for the kids, and maybe somethin for the wifey, but kids are more important.
Im really not looking forward to start out on my own. It sounds like one big struggle!
and no i am not an old guy living with his parents lol
It's not as bad as I make it sound Alpha, right now is the perfect time to buy.
I paid $440,000.00 for my home 5 years ago (top of the market) and now it's worth $220,000, but I'm still paying $2400 a month, if you buy now you'd pay $220,000 and only like $1100 a month, at least in San Diego (the good neighborhoods )
And my 15K in credit card debt isn't helping any either 90% of my paycheck goes to BILLS, if I get lucky I have some play money, but I finally learned my lesson. I closed half of my credit cards, and the other half are useless to me since they are lines of credit that only work on what was already purchased so I cant close them. Which is good because if you have tons of debt and close the accounts, thats bad on your credit rating, but if the accounts are still open and up to date, you wont damage your rating.
Boy do I go on and on.
I think buy February I will have 2 of the lower ones paid off so I can pay the larger accounts.
dang ner vod... I'm looking at houses in the 150K range! BTW... it's not really that difficult to get urself started if u make good money and have no debt. My problem is that I had to buy 2 new cars and the AF put me on 6 month delay prior to active duty... so I had to live on min wage and credit cards for 6 months... really puts u in a hurt. I have a great deal right now tho... I make almost 50K a year... and that's my starting salary! Also, don't have 15K in credit card debt... and I also have STOPPED using my credit cards and am trying to pay down enough to actually start saving money. I'm hoping once I move away from FL and my utilities and payments are not so high that I will be able to relax a little. Plus I think my wife has a nice job lined up.
@Kal: I highly recommend when you do get your own home, hopefully you wont have an HOA, but if you do be sure that you can put solar panels up, because the $15,000 investment will put you into the NO MORE PAYING $300 a freaking month on electricity!!
You can include it in the mortgage and when you move, the payment for the solar will stay on the new owner not you... if you move.
I cant put solar on my home because of the HOA.
@SAZ, I'm married, I dont have to dress to impress anymore
haha! you guys made me burst out laughing there and adonian, call me levi i just like it better that way
Yeah I'll be in Oklahoma City area, looking for a rural home (the few that there are there) so I don't have to deal with an HOA. I dunno I just have issues with ppl tellin' me what I can/can't do on MY OWN DARN PROPERTY! lol Not sure I'd be willing to put an extra 15K into it since I'm going to be moving again in like 3 yrs... hopefully in 2 tho. But, the house I like the most so far has geo-thermal heating and I think they said something about solar usage for something... I'll have to double check that. Anyhow...lol that's just me, not really in it for the long haul... a bit of a nomad except I can't just pick up and leave when I want to, I have to do it on Uncle Sam's schedule. As for the cost of the utilities I've been told they're a lot lower in the OK City area, I hope that's true since my BAH is going down from here to there. But my utilities here are insanely high... I think the ppl who read my meters need to be in that ward u work in! lol
I think the meter readers just make up numbers some times just so they can sit in their airconditioned trucks and listen to that marriachi ****.
Okay, I know this is a family friendly board, but since when is the word that rimes with rap and clap a bad word?
ive seen people write worse, i personally dont think its a bad word but i dont know if this board will allow it
yea, I mean Stephany Meyer uses that word in place of the other on e in her books since she is religious, so HMMM?
Anyway anyone know where I can get a template for a Verp?
Also I ordered the silver dreads.
lol Saz ur too funny ner vod, and Adonian I dunno about where to get the templates for it but Zerimar's (Ray Ramirez) verp is the best lookin' one I've seen. Altho Mereel Skirata on here has a pretty good lookin' verp too, may ask him. I'm pretty sure there was also a verpine thread on here somehwere too.
I'm basicly married so i'm in the same boat. lol got a paint scheme idea what you think, its rough just real fast.
well Jaycen I already said it once on ur thread but I'll say it again... I like it!
I likey, it's electronic/circuit boardish.
lol hey Adonian if u have the Military Channel u need to turn it on in about... 10-12 min! SpecialOps Mission comes on at 2100 CST, and it's an AWESOME show!
go with the silver dreads vod. would match so much better and thanks
you know the chest display, i was thinking of using one of those LED dog tags sideways, they come in white green red blue purple pink and yellow.
hmm... I think blue
to match my visor correct?
Sounds good to me!
yup! absolutely correct
and just so i dont feel left out... YUPPPPPERS!
Okay, I started my kids bucket today, but its too small DARN!! Oh well, I'm gonna finish it anyway.
I forgot if I printed this at 85% or 90%, I will print another one (only the dome pages to test) in a day or 2.
But here we go, a small step by step.
First I printed the WOF templates, I then glued (gluestick) those pages to priority mail envelopes.
Second I cut and taped the dome together.
I glued the face to another envelope, and cut it out, wraped it around the dome and 'spot' taped it to see, I decided to raise it a bit so it would fit onto my 5 year old, it barely fits.
I cut and layered the cheek bones and taped them in.
Looks good to me.
Next I will resin the interior and glass the weak areas only.
Then I will bondoglass the exterior and BAM! Mini Bucket

Just cutting and taping the parts together took me almost 3 hours... Thats because I used scissors and not my Xacto since I was using the dinner table/storage table ( ).
I'm off tomorrow so I'll resin the interior, and do some house cleaning then hopefully start the bondo.
uh oh, here we go again.
haha! ive seen that before I thought these suits were meant to make sure we're dead if we get shot. Why else would we wear them? ARE YOU SURE YOU'RE NOT DEAD?!?!?!
O M G that is too funny vod.
okay another minor update.
as you can see it still needs something on the right earcap... any suggestions?
As for the sketch (my avatar) Kal put a red blood mark on the bucket, I WILL be adding it soon, I just need a closer look at Kal and Alpha's sketches.

if you want vod ive already done a close up of your bucket, i can add a few details of what i would think looks good and you can go where you want with it.
just so you know i never posted the close up. Just something i tried
