    Oct 26, 2008, 11:48 PM - Cod'ika Armor *PICS* #1

    This is my first Mandalorian armor so i know it doesnt really stand up against 99% of all of yours(everyone) but hey,who doesnt like to show off their kit? i made most of the plates but im ordering a back plate and idk bout gauntlets im still thinking on that,and then theres the legs stuff >.>

    anyways for halloween my school is throwing a carnival for the younger kids so they can trick'or'treat off the streets(thats the logo) that way the parents need not worry.and what says you shouldn't worry bout your kids? how bout a Mando or two keeping an eye out? lol ne ways heres some pics....oh and i had a heart plate but uh.....(pulls a piece of paper out of a hat marked excuses)uh....."**** jawas!"

    basic pic of the armor


    and heres a closer pic


    and here are my shoulder bells

    I think it's off to a great start! I love that blaster scorch mark on the shoulder.

    Very awesome start! Only suggestion thus far is that you may wanna make your chest diamond a little longer. It kinda looks a bit short.

    Love the armor! The shoulder bell with the scratch looks great, but the blaster scorch on the other bell looks plain awesome!! Wonderful energy burn effect!

    Very nice! Love the weathering. Grill lighter, eh? That explains it. I saw that and immediately thought 'cigarette burn'... sweet effect.

    all right so i've been promiseing pics for a couple of days now but ive been frantic trying to get ready for the halloween carnival for the elementry school kids at my school yesterday, it was a blast and also my first troop(idk if it counts or not >.>) but i loved it,i was originally supposed to work in only one room but when admin saw my kit i got patrol duty("walk around and look professional") kids loved it course not everyone knew "who" i was but they kknew it was SW,i only got one pic on my cam but a lot of my friends took pics of me so i hope to have them soon.^^

    without further ado.......

    *black distressing
    *velcro to plates
    *finish helmet
    *buy my freking visors(note to self:STOP BEING SO KRIFFING LAZY!)
    *and whatever i forgot on this list or whatever i think of....that i forgot...
