Hello, I'm Talleaon Carr. I've been a lurker and for some time, and just been kinda more interested in the Custom page because, well, Jango and Boba, ya seen one ya seen 'em all.
So anyway, I'm thinking on making a Mando costume.
My buddy and I are planning on going to Dragon*Con, and I'm making a Corran Horn Rogue Squadron costume, but I saw Marrow Sun's custom bucket, and thus I decided I want a mando costume, too.
But this is where I'm stuck. I don't want another standard Mando. I'd like some ideas and thoughts if anyone has suggestions.
I'm thinking of making a 'close combat' specialist. Being as I've got ideas for crushgauntlets, that I'll have the armor mounted on a vest, similar to Jango's set up, short sleaves which would show off my arms. I don't want to do the full body suit.
I'm thinking of making him have a short range weapon, like a shot gun Star Wars-ized, maybe a pistol, then knives and blades and other weapons.
But he's gonna have armor, but manuverability, is my goal.
Anyone have suggestions or ideas? I'd love to hear them, and any support would certianly help.
I look forward to hearing what you folks have to say!
