    May 26, 2010, 2:41 PM - could use some help #1

    Ok first of im new to this compleatly so all advice and help is welcome.

    Second: I discovered my love for mando's while watching clone wars cartoon on CN and id really like to make a custom mando armor...Have the basic idea and have some of the material and tools but lack a bit of skill.And i have a small problem since the armor that im going to make wont be just for showing off at parties and shiznip...infact it'll be used as a part of a home made paintball gear.(btw criticism is good so dont hold it back)The armors gonna be made from just basic plastic buckets,and trash cans while the helm will be made by a friend of mine who's a bit better at it then me(since he owns a costume shop xD).

    if you're going to be using it for paintball be sure to be wearing an actual mask certified for it. mando helmets don't offer much for visibility, and in the case you were wearing one and you took a shot to the visor there is a good chance that it would shatter all into your eyes; and i can imagine that being more enjoyable than a rubber mallet to the genitals.
