I have been toiling in obscurity on a custom mando and realize it is time to share my progress. Of course most what I have done is based on reading the great posted experiences on TDH!
So far I have…
-Bought black flight suit
-Made gray girth belt
-Bought black ammo belt
-Bought Sgtfang helmet, need to finish and paint
-Bought painted reinforced painted rubies helmet from a guy on TDH for practice/backup/display in case
-Made assorted Sintra armor pieces
-Made vest pattern and sample vest out of cheap fabric
-Bought huge Nerf blaster, need to paint
-Found some old pellet guns to customize and paint as well
I had knee surgery January 10 so there was some down time but have started painting the armor pieces except cod and gauntlets which need work first. I will share more as I get more done. My goal is to be done in time for Starfest in Denver April 20th.
Here's cliackable image of the concept design:
